View Full Version : Not all songs showing up

I am using the original Squeezebox and I have just recently found that it is only seeing about half of the songs in my iTunes library.

I am on Mac OSX 10.3.8 connecting over a mixed G/B wireless network. One non-standard feature of my set up is that I have my tunes all stored on an external drive.

It played all the songs in my library for the last couple of years, but now no luck. The song count is half what it should be and several of the playlists show empty. Also, many songs I attempt to play from the Squeezebox (as opposed to the Web interface) don't play but display STOPPED on the display.

A couple of things have changed recently that could be behind it. First, I upgraded the Slim Server software recently to version 6.0.1 because the Squeezebox was having frequent trouble connecting to Slim Server (even though it found the network fine).

Also, I recently updated to iLife '05, which upgraded iTunes to version 4.7.1 (30). Not sure which event triggered the problem.

I followed the suggestions in the FAQ about changing the path for the iTunes library and changing it back with no luck. I also changed the preferences so the Slim Server starts when I log in to get around the problem of the external drive not being mounted right away.

I also tried their suggestions about changing the Keep Music Folder Organized settings. I've done all this twice but with no results.

Any suggestions?

To diagnose this problem, it would be great to get debug output with the
--d_info and --d_scan debug flags on when you do a rescan.

To get this output, shut down SlimServer, launch a Terminal window, cd
to the SlimServer directory
(/Library/PreferencePanes/SlimServer.prefPane/Contents/server for most
people, the same path with a ~ prepended to it for others), and type:

../slimserver.pl --d_info --d_scan

Choose Rescan under the Server Settings of the web interface after doing
this and send the terminal output (you can cut&paste or redirect to a
file) to me at vidur | at | slimdevices.com.

Thanks,
