    I have a new 32g sd card and I'm having problems transferring my music to it, the files end up disappearing or become corrupted I'm transferring from a win7 laptop to my ov running backside, it doesn't matter whether I use usb mode or if I take out my card and put it in the card reader I have an idea that maybe windows media player is adding album art and what not to the files and maybe this is corrupting the files? Any ideas that maybe I'm missing something somewhere?

    I'm sorry, Idk what Meta info is. I don't really pay attention to what I do. As long as I get it done, I'm fine.

    Bjzapp why ya gotta be like that in the thread? Any ways I notice that when I load mp3s onto the sd card I notice that album covers will pop up when deleting but I can't find them with a file explorer I'm wondering if this is causing the problem

    Yes, WMP will mess with your tags and album art. I immediately uninstall it whenever I install Windows.

    Are you using it to transfer to your phone? Just open up the SD card in windows explorer and copy/paste the files or drag and drop them into a music folder.

    Actually I have been using windows explorer to try and drag and drop, freekin windows I figured it was messing with the meta tags. I think this has been the source of my frustration. Know of any programs that can delete meta tags by batch it would take forever one by one.

    Windows media player does not do anything to the tags just adds missing information iTunes on the other hand will mess up ID3 tags. If you check Amazon's customer service forms you'll see that a lot of people are having problems with 32GB sdcards.
    One thing to check is to make sure that the buffering is turned off. Windows 7 the buffering is turned off by default but if it is turned on the card cannot be removed without damaging the card.

    I didn't think about the buffering, would it still try to buffer when mounted thru the recovery tho? Hmm where can I check.....went to device manager and checked write cache is disabled.... This is annoying-later on I tried to zip all the files together and this what I got when I tried to unzip it on my phone. Wtf this is ticking me off:banghead::banghead:

    Try a different sdcard, I'm thinking the one you have has bad sectors and is causing the data to be corrupted.
