Can't add new songs
#1
Hi,

I am dealing with what seems to be a slightly corrupted backup file / database, but perhaps there is also a bug somewhere.

Whenever I try to add a new song it displays this message in the preview section:
"File /storage/emulated/0/Download/I Want To Know You.cho does not exist"

This is the name of a chordpro song I added into the database not long after MobilesheetsPro was released, and this problem has been around since then.
There is nothing in the file list, and whenever I try to add a file it tells me I cannot mix text files with other file types.

I have tried clearing app data completely and restoring a backup, but the problem persists after restore (not before restore though).
I also tried deleting the song with the same name and restoring from a backup of that, but no difference.

Note, it is possible to add songs when opening files with MSP from a file manager.

Is there any way to fix this without rebuilding my database from scratch? (I have over 200 songs)

Thanks,
Jason

Does this song actually exist? If not can you create it and see it it appears in the list and can be removed?

That is really bizarre. If you force close MobileSheetsPro (exit out, hit recent apps, swipe MS Pro off the list), then reload it, then tap on the "Add" button with the Recent or Songs tab selected, you see that message? Do you also encounter errors if you go to Import->Local File? If you edit an existing song, what happens?

If I create the file that it is complaining about, it shows up in the preview window, but it is not listed in the file list and I haven't found any way to remove it. 
Yes it still happens after force closing the app, but import local file works without any trouble.
Thanks

Editing an existing file works as expected and shows the file(s) in the file list as normal. I can remove all files and add a new file without trouble while editing a song, but not when creating a new song.

Hi Mike,
Is the .msb file some form of archive that I could extract and see if I can find the error?
I tried opening it with 7zip, but that didn't work.
Thanks,
Jason

Yes, it is 'some form of archive', home-brewn by Mike Wink.
I have some tools on GitHub that process MSB files which may be helpful.

Hi.

So I am still having trouble with "ghost files" when trying to create a new song. Now there are two of them showing up and preventing me from adding any other files.
Have tried using Johan's tools, but can't seem to find anything.
I think there must be something weird in the database file, which is attached in case anyone is able to have a look at it.

Everything works fine if I clear the library, but as soon as I restore my backup, the problem is back again.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Jason

How are the ghost files preventing you from adding new songs?

When I try to select a source (e.g. folder, image, dropbox) a message pops up saying that "You cannot mix text files with other file types". But there is no way to remove the text file that it thinks is there.
