Unhappy Can't open files on SD-card from file list!

Greetings. I am encountering some wierdness with iSolo (v 3.25) on my Palm m500. I am suddenly unable to open any of the files that are installed on my SD-card from the DOCUMENT LIST (yes "open" option is selected in the lower left). They are all in the list, but show size as 0K, and when I tap one open I get a "Document Missing" message. However (and here's the wierd part), if I use the "Open File..." option from the Tools menu, I can open any of the installed files just fine!

This is good news, because I know my SD-card isn't fritzed. But is the document list database corrupted or something? How might I go about correcting this problem? Thanks.

Gary

iSilo supports the use of multiple-memory cards. You might use this in a situation where you have a memory card that stores all your off-line website documents while another card might store reference documents for your work.

For each document in iSilo's document list, in addition to the name of the document, the name of the card (e.g., the volume name) on which the document is located is also stored. This way, when you tap on a document name in the list and the current card has a different volume name, iSilo thinks that the document is on a different card. When this happens, iSilo presents the "Document Missing" alert with the message "The document is on the volume labeled 'Volume Name'. Insert the volume and then try the operation again". You might wonder, why doesn't iSilo just look on the current card for a document with the name that the user tapped on. The reason is that it is possible for you to have two different documents on two different cards that have the same name but are located on different cards.

So if you renamed your volume and haven't told iSilo to resynchronize the list, then given the above description of how it works, you can see why you would get the Document Missing message.

To synchronize the document list to the current card, go to the Tools menu of the document list and tap "Synchronize List".

This was the problem. I forgot that I had renamed my card. The "Synchronize List" did the trick. Thanks!
