Help! I'm going nuts!!!

So I figured out that Slimserver 6 ignores protected
AAC files which accounts for 16 of the 17 additional
tracks that iTunes shows in my music library.
However, I cannot figure out the last track that is
missing.

Is there anything that would make Slimserver not count
a track that is in iTunes besides it being a protected
AAC?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks-

do you have any tracks marked as disabled in itunes?

do you have read permissions for slimserver for all files?

you could try running a scan with d_itunes turned on, then compare the log.
That could get messy with a lot of files, however.

I have not tried this, but I have heard that iTunes 4.7 (and perhaps
earlier) will allow you to put PDF files in the library. (don't ask me
why...) Any chance one slipped in?

How long is the filename? I had a similar experience last year and it
was tracked down to the filename of the ignored songs being more than 64
characters long. From memory SS recognized the albums once I altered the
filenames and tags.

Nope

I would think so. I've never treated any tracks
different.

I don't think so, but I'll double check. Thanks.
