Hi i recently noticed that scanner won't scan folders with "foreign " characters in the folder name ? at least not the nordic/swedish character "ö".
As all my Björk and Röyksopp music was gone.
And it will not scan files with "ö" in the tags.

Proved by this workaround, if i go to each folder via "music folders" and start each album then the artist and album shows up (with slightly broken images at some places).

But for the songs with "ö" i had to play each and every song, then they show up in albums etc.

That for for "scan for new or changed music" or what.

Now I'm in the process of a complete clear and rescan I supect that this work around won't survive that I'll post when it's done.

Please inform me if theres an never bug on this, then I can vote there.

What file formats are you using?

I've done a few changes to the file path handling which fixed a bunch of
open bugs. No good if they re-introduced old bugs :-(.

You mean the scan didn't find them, but they would work if you played them
from Browse Musicfolder?

Are you editing, ripping, managing these files all on that machine, or are
you using Windows or OSX across the network, using Samba?

and 99% of my files are FLAC

"You mean the scan didn't find them, but they would work if you played them

Yes, and after that they appeared under artists and album ?

so that my count of albums went from 1107 to 1115

I could hear that that server was scanning while i browsed those files in Musicfolder.

Ripping etc it's done on other machines, but the Björks was ripped on my win XP partition except for one that was ripped on a friends OSX.
I transfered those files to my servers via SMB from my Ubuntu desktop, if it's matter's the files where on a NTSF disc in my machine :-)

And now the clear and rescan is ready... not good it didn't pick up these discs

edit: of course the affected files are FLAC, but that is of no consequnce if scan won't go trough folders with have Ö in foldername.
and the file names and tags is in some cases completely free of any strange characters due to the quality of FreeDB, the punters who submit tags wont care.

With embedded CUE sheet or not?

Can you see the file/folder names on the Linux system?

Feel free to open a bug report with a file attached.

That's a long standing buglet: using a instead of ä should work.

will do bug report tomorrow, little busy at the moment.
No need to attach file ? how do i attach an empty folder ;-)

As for Björk or Röyksopp a have a common folder for each artist.Example.

Björk> Debut > files..

Scanner is ignoring the whole dir, thus missing every file in there.

You could always zip a folder structure. But I don't believe I'll be able to reproduce this easily, as I've been testing non-latin character paths a lot recently, and they did work. What's your locale on the server?

I have Björk in my own collection.

Oops important info !

"You mean the scan didn't find them, but they would work if you played them
from Browse Musicfolder?"

Yes, and after that they appeared under artists and album ?

I had to browse via the SC web interface ! as the SB was never able to find the files when i browsed with the remote !!

I'm filling in the bug report now, going to refer to this tread for explanation

edit:
bug 7752 scanner won't scan folders with "foreign " characters
