Windows special folder issue

Reported by: bob_514450@… Owned by: bflorat
Priority: 6, normal Milestone: 1.9 "Killer Queen"
Component: Core Version: 1.8.4
Keywords: Cc:
Regression ?:


A sub-folder exist in a device (wich is a directory), but I can't see it even if I refresh the content. I tried to create a device directly with the folder, but the Java Explorer doesn't find it. I'm sure it exists, I see it in Windows Explorer.

Thank you!

I had screenshots.

The playlists in the folder (Music de Martin) and sub-folders are available in the Playlists list in Jajuk, but the folder itself is invisible.

Thank you!

Can't reproduce (at least under Linux). Please:

  • Provide the exact OS you use (Windows XP ?)
  • Any particularity of this directory (seems that it is seen as music by windows)
  • Check that tout device has been properly refreshed. To make sure, please select your device in files tree view -> right click -> Force refresh -> fast refresh.

Note as well that newer jajuk versions are available : 1.8.4 for stable and 1.9RC2 for unstable.

  • Version changed from 1.8.2 to 1.8.4

The folder was a "My music" folder from a computer with Vista. I'm using XP Pro SP3. I installed Jajuk 1.8.4 and force refreshing many times. The folder stay invisible in any view, but the playlists inside the folder appear in the playlists list.

This is the structure of the folder: Music de Martin/folders for artists/folders for albums/mp3s, playlists, cover image...

I forced the type so Windows sees it has music.

Thank you

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

I solve the problem: I copied all the files (without the desktop.ini and all the other hidden files) to a new folder.

  • Resolution fixed deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened
  • Summary changed from Unable to find a folder to Windows special folder issue

OK, thanks for the feedback. We'll check if a better solution can be found in upcoming 1.9 but I'm not very optimistic.

I cannot reproduce here (under WXP SP3 in my My Music special directory). My music loads fine. Maybe the desktop.ini file from Vista was not backward compatible into WXP or something.

I close this ticket, assuming it is a non standard case.
