Not that I have much to add in either case but we have two totally different stories in this one thread. Neither is resolved.

The past week i've been editing songs within virtual dj's tag editor. Yesterday i re did some tags in the genre of some songs that have been used, scanned and have cues. today i open virtual dj and it pop ups a little window saying that the databse is corrupted. Iclicked ok to fix and it erased the tag from about 2000 songs along with cues and sees them as newly songs added in the database. HAven't seen this one before. i do have a backup hard drive. Any idea why this happened? and how to prevent by happening?
I can't say why this is happening. My first guess would be corrupt sectors on the harddrive, but it could just as well be a bug with the VDJ's XML writer etc. Hard to tell..
Have a look at the tool HDD Regenerator (http://www.dposoft.net/ ) to see if there is a problem with the disk itself. IIRC the demo allow you to fix one bad sector. At least you can see if it finds any problems and take it from there. If all good then check for viruses (actually, do this first if you haven't already) as they can mangle files. If nothing then it's something the VDJ crew have to look into.
That being said, I just so happen to work on a fixing tool for VDJ databases. I don't know if you have got this problem solved - if not, would you be willing to share the "database.xml" file (before VDJ tries to repair it, if possible)? I can have a look at it to see if it has some structural/encoding/corruption errors. pastebin.com is one option for sharing it, probably there are better options, any suggestion welcome. (and this goes for anyone else who have run into this problem as well).
In any case, hope it sorts out and let us know if you had it fixed.

I can share you the file as soon as i go home. Another thing is that i do have a backup buy I was never able to get my mp4s fixed the eay they were before. My Computer is super clean and i am teck savvy. So this one is a new for me. I am thinking of opening the xml file replacing a lines with and old file. Haven't tried it yet
