Thumbs down N95 8GB v15 Firmware

Just installed it - everything works just like it did before ... Flash Lite 3 is nice but the only thing I ever needed it was uTube and emTube was working just fine before.

The music menu list is still fucked - deleted artists still in the menus, unable to delete them... Nokia must have a clause in their hiring practice that you have to be an absolute moron to work there. The hell if I'm ever buying another thing that has the Nokia name on it... will be selling my P.o.S. phone on ebay soon I think... soo much money on such a piece of crap, buggy as hell phone - stupid me for falling for all the Nokia fanboys claiming this is the best smart phone ever - this phone is far from smart - far, far from smart...

I'm just wondering... have you tried bluetoothing songs by these deleted phantom artists to anything else like a PC to have a look at them? Maybe they're MP3s that have incorrect details in the ID3 tags.

My apologies if this has already been suggested

No, these were the pre-bubled songs that came with the device and one of the first thing I did was to remove them as they were not quite my favorite kind of music. None of the files are on my phone - if you try to play them, it tells you to go to hell, if you try to delete them it tells you to go to hell... I think I'll be telling nokia to go to hell soon.

Well the only song I ever had bundled on the phone was the Moby track, which I deleted using the file manager before I opened the music player, you also need to remove the corresponding 'dcf key' from the 'actv.keys' application.

I always backup and format before a firmware upgrade.

Its a hassle but you get a brand new phone effectively.

Well, its a bug in N95 8gb and N95 (FW V20)

When u delele an album contents in the music library, even the album content is completely removed , an empty album will still remain in the MUSIC library, even u refresh the music library ,it will still exist.

If u try to delete it , u will get an error

"General : Feature not supported"

Here is the solution to delete it :

* Firstly, connect your phone to a PC via USB.
* Choose Data Transfer (a.k.a. Mass Storage). Do not select PC Suite because you won’t be able to browse protected folders in PC Suite mode.
(Or just take the memory card out and put in a card reader)
* Open Windows Explorer on your PC.
* Go to \private\101FFC31 on the phone’s folder.
* There, you should be able to find the mpxv1.mpd (for MP3) and pcv5.mpd (for AUDIO PODCAST)
* Goto \private\101f8857\Cache
* Goto \private\101ffca9
* In all the 3 folders delete all the files Not the FOLDER
* Now refresh ur music library

Worked for me on the N95, so should work also on the N95 8GB.
To be honest, for me not a serious bug.

Greetings
Tom

Thanks Tom - that worked like a charm - I've been looking on every Nokia and Sybmian/S60 forum I could find about a solution and was never able to find one.

It is a pain in the arse to have to do this every time you delete a bunch of songs but thankfully I mostly add new music currently rather than delete it so hopefully I won't have to do this too often.

This is pretty rediculous for normal users to do though (as I can guarantee you that 99.9% won't be able to follow these instructions) and you have to agree with me this is pretty stupid for them to leave it like that. How hard it is to make it automatically dump these cache files when doing a Library refresh?

Got mine sorted, no major headaches after restoring from the memory card.

I am not a Nokia fan boy, but you need to compare this with all the other phones out there. There is nothing that comes remotely close. Nokia have packed a shed load of technology into this thing and a lot of new technology at that. Nothing this feature packed and new is going to be completely bug free, and you will be stupid in thinking so. (Compare this to Windows or Linux, where you are installing updates on a weekly basis for the last 5 years or so, and they still haven't got it right).

Your only gripe is the music library not updating correctly??.. Christ , get a life!

Its not like Nokia have been sitting on there hands either, the last firmware update brought you a performance improvement as well as you tube support in the browser. I think most people can forgive them for forgetting about a small bug which may have simply been overlooked.
