Why do I sometimes get a null return, from ContentResolver query?

 My external sdcard is connected, mounted and functional. I have over
1000 songs on the sdcard, however occasionally this query returns a
null Cursor to me.

Can someone shed some light as to why this happens ? Can I get this is
the underlying table is locked by another thread ? Should I take a
null return from the query to mean a temporary error ?

String[] cols = {

Cursor c = context.getContentResolver().query
Media.IS_MUSIC + " = 1",

1. Two different views with CursorAdapter

I am not sure if you can do this, but essentially what I am trying to
do is to use a CursorAdapter with a list that has two different
views.  To be more specific, I am trying to have a different view for
an item in the list that's selected than the rest of the items in the
list that's not selected.  Is this possible?

If so how? some code snippet would help greatly.  thanks
