@bAsKeT cAsE, if you look at the MP3 files that you have now and compare them to the backup copies that you made, do they differ in size? I'm wondering if this only affected the header of the file (which controls the length and such) or if it actually removed the data...
What happens if you try listening to the songs in another player like Winamp?
Can you still seek through the songs (skip through portions of it)?
i tested various media players when i thought it was a codec problem. Did it with all of them, which is what led me to copy the files to my other devices to see if it did it on there as well.
I actually already replaced alot of them with the backup, but some i have not.
Such as this leona lewis song.
About 2-3 seconds of the beginning of the song are missing.
the original/backup file size is 5,551kb
and the cut up one is 5,524.... btw i should make it clear that i've only noticed the beginnings missing.
I don't have a problem with uploading them so someone could inspect them, but i dont wanna break any rules with copyright etc.
