Defective Music Library

I am totally fed up with the defective music library on my 5800xm, so I have the following questions.

1. What tool do I need to use to find the library file?
2. Where is the music library file located?
3. Once found, can I just delete it and leave it to the player to regenerate it?

Smile OK here is a solution that works!


I found this solution to the library problem and it works

Manually remove deleted artists from Music Library
1. Connect your 5800 to you PC in Mass Storage Mode

2. On your PC you will need to have allowed to "Show" hidden files, do this from Explorer/Tools/ Folder Options/ View and select "Show hidden files and Folder"

3. Open your SD memory card/Removable Disk in My Computer on PC

4. Go to E:\ Private there you will see 3 folders 101f8857, 101ffca9 and 10281e17 . Shown below left.

5. Go to Private\101f8857\Cache\E there you will see .dat files. Delete all the .dat file BUT NOT the E Folder.

6. Now go to Private\101ffca9 there you will see another .dat file, Delete the dat file NOT the folder. Shown below Left.

7. Finally go to Private\10281e17 There you should see 4 files 2 are Mp3 files other are Podcast files. Delete mpxv2_2.db & mpxv2_2.db-journal for Mp3 files list and Delete pcv6_1.db & pcv6_1.db-journal for Podcast files list. Shown above right

8. Close all windows and disconnect your Phone. Go to Music Library and it should automatically start a refresh.

This time did not work for me. I did this before, but again faced the problem of podcasting not opening up. I am eager to find another suitable podcasting applicaton for xm 5800. It is a shame that an express music phone can not work with a podcasting application. Note that I have the latest firmware....
