About six months ago I installed Redhat9 in a dual boot pc with windows XP.
There are 3 hard drives, one with xp, one with Redhat and another being storage for my mp3s.
Under windows using winamp I had about 900mp3's (this is correct)
Under Redhat, XMMS would only 'see' about 700 of them
I installed Suse over Redhat a few days ago and all of my mp3's are now recognised using the XMMS that comes with Suse-an older version than I was using with redhat.
Also XMMS is able to identify the song length much better, Redhat was never any good at this.
Any ideas as to what might have caused this, although its not a problem any more, its still very strange imho.
