Ankidroid deck- name too long and no sound - workaround

If you use anki flashcards and ankidroid app on android and you study Japanese and you download " Japanese Core 2000 Step 1 (Sentence Listening)" deck. Then you need to read this.

The file name is too long, whoever created this deck messed up, and the sound component doesnt work. Change both the .anki file name and the media directory name to the a much shorter file name and without brackets and it then works just fine.


  1. Thanks for the tip!
    There was a bug with long file names, it has been fixed 3 days ago, so the latest beta should actually work better:

  2. I would recommend you to try Long Path Tool program to fix this problem
