Actually, yes. There are two identical entries that match the two timestamps of my attempted syncsI got a response from the GoneMad developer - he thinks its probably one of your filenames in GoneMad library has an invalid unicode character.
TrackStatMgr - Illegal character (U+ffff)
I guess there isnt an easy way to find the offending filename and making some correction - maybe narrow down for files added to GoneMad around the last file modification date of the stats.xml file.
If you do find it, let me know so i can pass the info to the GoneMad developer in case he is willing to put in some handling
I've got files going on and off my phone all the time and it would probably be impossible to find the offending file at this point if it's even still on the phone.
I know that I do have artists with non-ASCII characters in their names, and that I use artist names in my template (Album Artist/Album/Disc-Track and then the first few characters of the track name), so I'm guessing it's one of those artists creating the problem.
I think I remember that there's not, but is there a way to sanitize the path/filename to only ASCII characters? Maybe I can think of some alternate template that would prevent duplicate filenames while avoiding artist names in the path entirely.
I'm not very familiar with the file naming rules on Android devices, but how are file names with invalid characters being saved to the phone? If the character is invalid, wouldn't it fail trying to write the file to the phone with that name in the first place?
A smile is happiness you'll find right under your nose.
