Problems: I have a first generation SlimPC which I have been using for years. Now just added several dozen new mp3 files to my library . Library holds 3000 + songs.
Upgraded to latest 6.2 Software.
Rescanned libary.
Newly added tracks show up but will not play if entire library is scanned.
It gets more interesting: If you change the server settings to that the scanned directory is limited to just the new file folder...the files play.
I have rescanned the entire library several times.

So, in other words the tracks will not play at all if the server is set to scan the entire library..but will play if the server is limited to only the new files.

You mean SliMP3?

What OS are you running? Are the files on the same computer as the server?

You might want to turn on debugging (server settings/debugging): activate
d_info and d_files. Then there's a link a the top of the page to open the
log file. What does it say when you're playing one of those songs?
