Hi,

I've added some new albums to my itunes this weekend and these are all
working and displayed from within itunes however slimserver isn't
picking them up. Is this the same as the "missing files" problem that
people have reported?

I'm running the 3/3/05 latest nightly on Win2003. This is connected to
a SliMP3 and a softsqueeze PC.

I've tried restarting the PC, confirming itunes is actually enabled,
forcing a rescan and deleteting and recreating the slimserver
database. This files don't appear in the browse artists list or new
music.

I did have it set to automaticall detect the itunes XML file but have
now forced it with an XML location and location of itunes music.

still nothing

any ideas

cheers

Steve

you might want to confirm that the XML file you have now set slimserver to look
for, is really the one that is being changed by iTunes. If you have erased the
db, or wiped cache then you should be importing fresh from itunes XML.

You can also look at d_itunes and d_info log output to see if the files are
being added, then removed (which is one symptom of the reported missing files
problem, reported as bug1226). I bleieve there has been reported success with
the latest nightly build's as far as that bug report, however.
