View Full Version : Library size differs between slimserver and iTunes (using exact same music folder)

I have a library that I created completely with iTunes (ripping). When I have slimserver scan that music folder, the number of songs it comes up with are different than what iTunes reports - by 18. Anyone know what causes this? I'm inclined to think the iTunes number is correct, as I'm also having troubles (which I'm working on with support) using the "use iTunes" function of the slimserver.

I even created a new iTunes library and imported all the music from that folder into it - and after doing that both iTunes and slimserver (after scanning that same folder) reported a different number (by about 20 songs).

Thanks!

You don't have any files that are doubled do you? With a large collection, I know I couldn't tell when this occured to me. I think itunes has a feature to view all duplicate files, just to check.

I have checked that in iTunes. Nothing is doubled. I do have some duplicate songs, but they're from different albums (say the original and a compilation). Of course I'd like to keep those, so they correctly stay associated with both albums.
