View Full Version : Dupicate Scanning Problems

2007-09-29, 04:03
Morning everyone.

I recently had a nightmare and inadvertently lost about 5000 songs from a hard disk which wasn't backed up.

So, I'm in the process of re ripping my music collection. Once again I'm using EAC and itunes encode to rip to Apple Lossless.

I've just downloaded the latest version of Slimserver (6.5.4) and it's installed fine.

The problem is that slim server is scanning multiple entries of many of my albums and I can't understand why?

Can anyone help - it's so frustrating not having a clean interface of music through the squeeze box

Many thanks

But did you also loose the iTunes XML library file? If the missing songs still appear in the iTunes app - then to SS they are still there as well, if you have the box checked "use iTunes".

What you may do, is from iTunes - select "all", delete (don't remove the actual files), then import your top-level folder back into iTunes. This will update the iTunes XML file.


... time to run a backup!
