Newbie question:

The "Guess Tags Formats" option doesn't seem to work as I expected.

I have a large collection of mp3 files with no id3 tags. They're structured in a tree in the form of /the/top/dir/artist_name/album_name/tracknum-title.mp3. I added this to my Guess Tags Formats:

/ARTIST/ALBUM/TRACKNUM-TITLE

and rescanned my collection. Still, nothing changed. When I browse or search by artist I don't see the artists from this tree, although its accessible via the Browse Folders option.

Isn't this what the Guess option is meant for ? Am I using it wrong ?

Thanks,
Mack

Yes. Did you perform a rescan or a wipe cache? The former looks for new music while the latter erases everything and rebuilds the library.

Thanks, that was the problem. I rescanned from the squeezebox itself (using the plugin) and it only scanned for new. Now I wiped it and it works.

Thanks,
