Sooo i tried to come back into customs after a long hiatus, but the strangest thing happens. i put the song i made onto the flash drive but it doesnt show up in library.

 

I was able to make the con file from C3 Magma. Check

Inserted the song into flash drive using Party Buffalo. Check.

But i load up the game and, while the rest of the library is there, this song is not. BUT i go to settings and look at the storage and i DO see the song there in the flash drive's memory!

 

I would delete the song cache but i actually dont see one on the flash drives memory.

 

Such a weird scenario, anyone have any ideas? im stumped. and aggravated all the work i did into the songs venue (and the rest of the song) was for naught

Duplicate song ID is probably the culprit.

Duplicate song ID is probably the culprit.

I just checked to be sure (just in case) none of the earlier versions of the song were on the flash drive, but i didnt see any so i dont think thats it. (unless there more to it than that)

 

I do notice something though looking at the file. its 30 MBs and its just a backing track song. Thats about the size of a song with the instrument's stems included, aint it. does that give us any clues?

 

I find it pretty strange i dont have a song cache though, isnt there normally always one?

UPDATE : for shits and giggles, i deleted all customs (not before saving them of course) except for that song im trying to load in, and it STILL didnt show up in the library. i found a song cache but it was in my actual hard drive with all the official DLC ive purchased. It wouldnt have the same song ID as an official dlc, would it?

ps, its a song from the video game series Persona, so theres no way anything like it is already released

Just a question, why are you using Party Buffalo? For me that doesn't really work. I use the RBtoUSB app located in C3 con tools and it works like a charm for adding stuff.

did you change the ID? I think if the song has the exact same title, artist, and album it will only cache the ID of the first version. since you deleted the old versions it's looking for the old ID and can't find it. I think that's how it works... I would just delete the song cache

 

as for the 30 MB, did you use the built-in silence audio in Magma or did you make your own? The silence doesn't need to be as long as the song, Magma's silence files are 1 second long.

+1 on not using party buffalo.  The new RBtoUSB system works flawless for me like Mandrag said above,

Have the same exact problem with multiple songs with different ID's and I'm using RBtoUSB.

This just started happening to me as well, but with songs downloaded directly from the C3 database. I'm using Modio, but I've transferred hundreds of songs this way in the past with no problems. Now, songs show up on the drive, and appear just like any other song when I look at them in the 360 storage settings, but don't show up in my library. I'm virtually certain it's not a duplicate ID issue here - just to test it, I deleted a working custom from my HDD, then tried downloading and placing a fresh copy of it on the flash drive. Even though it's the exact same track, it also refuses to show up in my library. Deleting song cache doesn't help. 

 

The only recent change I've made was adding an RBHP upgrade package, but I was under the impression this wouldn't affect addition of future songs. Could this be causing the problem?

I haad downloaded party buffalo before knowing there was the easier solution that is RBtoUSB. It wants me to format the flashdrive before itll let me use it. now that i backed up the more important stuff (all the customs previously) i should probably format it, because i can see RBtoUSB being simpler 

did you change the ID? I think if the song has the exact same title, artist, and album it will only cache the ID of the first version. since you deleted the old versions it's looking for the old ID and can't find it. I think that's how it works... I would just delete the song cache

Well i dont believe ive changed the ID...but i have done more recent versions. (like added overdrive and whatnot)

I did delete the song cache and it doesnt show up still :'(

 

Oo00ooo Thats whyyyyy!! I never remember magma has its fake files ready to go. Appreciate the headsup!
