View Full Version : Scan Debug

I recently upgraded my machine to a 4core XP box. All works well but when I try to rescan my collection the scanner runs for an hour or so and then crashes.

I run winXPSP2, Slimserver 6.5.4 (happened on 653 too), I have about 700G of flac and mp3 files an an NTFS filesystem.

Fortunately I usually navigate by music folder but sometime you forget where something is and a search is useful.

Is there a way to run the scanner and catch its debug somewhere?

When I use toad to look at the database it is empty. When I play songs the tracks get added to the database.

cheers
Gus

Make sure Slimserver is running. Then run the following command from the command prompt (assuming scanner.exe is in default directory) and replacing <musicfolder> by your own music folder.
The output should show files as they are scanned and hence the problem files.

"c:\program files\slimserver\server\scanner.exe" --wipe --d_scan --d_import <musicfolder>

It looks like you have some invalid Windows shortcuts in your directories.

You should look for them (often called .lnk files) and then delete them. You may need to do a search for hidden and system files to find them.

Thanks BPA I had a look for lnk files, even installed Cygwin but couldn't find anything. I'll try slim support.

It was a link indeed. It only showed up with dir *.lnk /s

That is one to remember as have been caught a few times before with this problem.

Interestingly a search in windows explorer and a find in cygwin did not show the culprit.
