Yeah, that's definitely an invalid M3U file.

Okay, Cambridge guys, your M3U parsing code in RMM needs to handle bad M3Us gracefully. Specifically, files which are comprised simply of 3k worth of zero bytes.

Yea.. unfortunately this seems to be only half my problem. RMM is still crashing after removing the offending playlist. I may have another bad one. Guess Im going to have to go through all the albums manually and look at the playlists.

Can you elaborate a little on why it is you need these album playlists at all? The Karma automatically lets you browse by album using the tag info...

Remember, I returned my Karma because of instability problems. Though RMM worked flawlessly for me.

Weren't you the one who had to reinstall windows to insall RMM and the like?

Because Winamp, etc uses them. It would be great if RMM just skipped them all together.

Yeah that was me, but RMM wasn't the first app to act funky around that particular time. There was something corrupt either in my Windows installation or one of my programs... RMM was the only one that complained about a specific DLL, but I had one or two other apps/utils that either weren't working right or wouldn't install at all. So I can't really blame RMM for those problems, and since nobody else has had them, all evidence points to something that was goofy on my PC.

Nevertheless, allow me to amend my statement to say "RMM worked flawlessly after I reinstalled Windows and exorcised the demons from my computer."

Well.. after 6 hours of combing thousands of folders, I finally got RMM to load and read my library. Turns out I had 3 corrupted playlists scattered throughtout my music library that crashed RMM. Dunno how these playlists got there, I guess T&R went out to lunch when it created them.

That being said, I hope better m3u processing is being implemented into RMM. Granted I fixed the problem here with the help of the forum people but Joe Blow who buys a Karma and doesnt come to these forums is going to be pissed when they run into this problem on their own.

It's a fair cop. FITNR. (Or, in fairness, possibly the release after that -- we might have already rolled the "next" release down the hill to QA.)

In case no one's said it yet, I'd like to send a big "thank you" to KungFuCow for having the perseverance to locate which files were giving RMM problems. He's helped improve the product by doing so.

Props to the man with the Gary Coleman avatar.

Thanks... Just glad to have gotten it working.

It's wierd that T&R did that with those playlists. Most of the music that had the offending playlists has been on my HD for a while so maybe Evgeny fixed that problem since then.

Funny, I use T&R too, I've looked at the playlist in an editor and it looks fine to me. All my other playlists are fine.
