This is not the issue that was really bad a few months ago.

First all my songs were erased? No idea what happened there? I do the full shutdown about once a week?

Now it will record a song and show the song in the song list. but when I try to play it it says "Cant play - File is empty"? What the hell!!

I got this exact same, weird message 2 weeks ago about an hour into my daily Stern show recording. My S2 was locked up so solidly, I had to resort to a battery pull to get it back working. Recorded fine from there on, and has been fine since.

Yeah i tried that..

It will display the song recorded and the run time, but gives that Cant play error on all of them. I try to record new songs and the same thing happens. I hate to have to call the tech line. they dont know anything over there!

You could try a reset+erase or a device recovery. Sounds like corruption.

Have you taken the last firmware update?

Welcome to the stiletto 2. I find that I have to do a reset/erase every two weeks to prevent memory corruption from leaving me with an empty playlist.

Oh my word, I didnt see this post even from a search and posted a duplicate message sorry.

I have had this SAME issue for 10 months now and Sirius is sending me my 3rd S2.

After my year warranty is up, I am afraid I am going to have to cancel my subscription. I had the original SL100 and it never did this. It froze up on me and Sirius said "Out of warranty means you need a new radio." So I bought the SL2. So far I am in my 2rd year with Sirius and over $1000.00 invested. I figured if they cant fix this, I am done with them.

really frustrating!
