Faster music access

Q. I've got almost 1000 songs loaded on my Nokia smartphone, whose mass memory is now about 75% full. Music is played fine, but getting to a particular track is very slow when its name doesn't come near the start or end of the alphabet. Browsing by artist sometimes speeds things up, but many of my (legally) ripped CDs are 'Various Artists', so I'm stuck. What music utilities are there to help speed up finding particular songs?

That's one very large file!

Q. I have recently been doing a clean up on my microSD card and have come across a very large file in one directory: /private/101ffc31/glxmdstn. My PC doesn't recognize it and it isn't visible in my phone's file browser. The file is a whopping 140MB. What purpose does it have? Is it safe to delete it? Maybe it's obsolete data?

Overnight battery drain with a Bluetooth smartphone

Q. I'm mystified. I go to bed at night with my smartphone next to me, showing a full charge, and in the morning it's down to almost zero. I've rebooted and made sure that there no extra, running applications that might be hammering the processor, and yet every night the story's the same. Is my smartphone faulty?

Low battery life, no rogue applications

Q. My Nokia smartphone doesn't seem to take long to get through a full battery charge. I've read tips about checking for rogue programs in memory and I regularly use TaskSpy, but by the end of a day on the road the battery's almost always very low. Do you think it's charging properly?
