I am looking for some ideas to try to help me with an issue. Some of my music is not being accessed by SqueezeCenter although the files are there. Others are running fine. I thoughty that a rescan would help but I cannot get a scan to run. I have tried scan for new music and clear files and rescan. Neither seem to bring any action at all. Although everything has worked in the past.

System details are:
Windows XP
Squeezecenter 7.01
Transporter and Squeezebox.

Can you "Browse Music Folder" them? Any hints in the log files
(scanner.log)? Does the scan finish at all?

See if the tracks you cannot scan have odd characters in them. If you look at the end of this thread you'll see I was having problems like that:

never got to the bottom of why this was happening, but it's a machine issue rather than SC as far as I can see.

I just tried that and I can browse the music folder and even play the music I could not through the Music librabry.

I am not suree how to access the log in files, any advise welcome.

I do not believe that the scan even starts,

I have solved my problems by upgrading to the latest nightly of Squeezecenter. After a delete and rescan everything seems to be okay.

In answer to David. There were no special characters and these albums appeared fine in the past.

Thanks to those who tried to help me.
