View Full Version : My scanning doesn't work

I've tried both a new scanning and scanning new files, but nothing happens. Still missing a couple of hundred albums..(It has found some for some reason)
I can browse them from the SB, but not search as they're not in the db so to speak.

When I try to start scanner.exe manually a dos-window opens up, and then closes automatically again. I've turned off my firewall without success.
What can I do ?

What types of files?

When you say you can browse them - do you mean Browse Music Folder (normally they would be added to the database as you do this) or Browse Artist/Album etc (in which case they are already in the database)?

If there is a set of albums that you are having trouble with, copy them out to a small separate test library and then run some tests just on that (will be quicker, and log files will be a lot shorter). Run a scan with -d_scan set and catch the output, look for messages about missing/corrupt/whatever files for clues.

Ceejay.

Files: Mp3

Some are added as I browse the music folder, but there's still alot that doesn't for some reason. Have changed a thing..just stopped working.

What do you mean by running -d_scan ?

It worked when I runned the scan manually. Why doesn't it work from Slimserver-explorer ?!?
Anyway, it found most albums (I think) but I got an error that looks like this:

Does this say anything (more than the Bing Crosby-CD) ?

The error suggests that there is a problem with a CUE file somewhere - are you using these, or do you just have separate files for each track?

You can also run, from the command prompt,

scan --d_scan --rescan

(and several other flags if you want), this puts extra info in the output about the scanning that is going on.

I use separate files for each track. Eventhough I have some playlistentries that my program creates when ripping a cd, but that doesn't matter, does it ?!?

What does this mean (last row):

Well, you said your files are MP3, but the error log shows it is trying to find WAV files.

Here's a guess: your ripping program (EAC?) is creating playlists for each album (you don't need these, BTW, but I think it might be a default??). The playlists are pointing to WAVs. But you are then transcoding to MP3 and deleting the WAVs (this is what EAC does).

So you are left with playlist files pointing to WAV files that don't exist. Delete the playlist files and all will be well.

Just a theory, of course...

I removed the playlist for that album, and the errormessage disappeared. Thanx ceejay !

Now let's hope the scanning works in explorer....
