I recently discovered that out of >550 MP3 files in a folder, only about 370 files was shown in the media player.

Using a tag editor I found that the missing files contained an invalid value (ex: 2012-00-00) in the year tag.

Correcting this made the file visible in the media player.

I would like the media player (or possible the tracker) to handle an invalid value as an empty value.

Could you please post one of those files somewhere so it can be checked?

An example could be:

Unfortunately I have been unable to re-create the problem, even though every one of the then missing files (and only the missing files) all had a year tag in the form of <year>-00-00, and correcting it did make the files visible.</year>

Well I have rebooted in the mean time, so ...

As I cannot re-create the problem, I have changed the question to [Not relevant]
