View Full Version : Slim Server Scan fails

2005-05-12, 08:26
I am attempting to scan a large music library with slim server v6. The scan has never picked up my entire library (spread across 2 physical disks and mapped with a shortcut) or it crashes after approximately 3 hours. Where do I start to trouble shoot this problem.

Hi there,
are you using the nightlies, or one of the "official" builds? I had the same problem with the nightlies and had to switch back (2428 albums with 27547 songs by 2817 artists). If that does not help, the only idea I have would be to crank up logging and trying again. You can also start with an empty mp3 directory and then start filling it with say 10 albums, do a rescan. If it goes ok, then put in 10 more, and so on. Eventually you'll find out the batch of 10 with the "broken" files.
Good luck!

I've also had this problem and checking the logs indicated a particular
file it was crashing on. Moved file out of MP3 directory and solved the
Renamed and retagged file for permanent fix.
