Hi, I've a problem with my Squeeze Center Library. When I add new discs in my music folder (Windows XP) they do not appears in the Squeeze Center Library. All my music is in Wma lossless format under Xp and ripped with Windows Media Player. I use Squeeze Center 7.0.1 - 19705. If somebody has an idea! Thanks in advance for yor help.

First, the dumb question - have you tried a full clear and rescan of the Squeezecenter library to import the new music?

Second idea, double check that the WMA files haven't been automatically ripped with copy protection. Open up WMP, select Options, Copy and uncheck Copy Protect Music if it is checked. Then you will need to rerip the files. Personally, I would look at a different ripper - but obviously very much your choice. There are some good suggestions in the wiki, DBPoweramp is very popular on these forums. I use Audiograbber.

If neither of these is your problem, post back and let us know.

Thanks for your answer - Yes i've done a full clear and rescan of the Squeezecenter library. No protection in WMP. In fact, for having the folders in Squeeze Center, I am obliged to create a new folder with Windows Explorer, and I copy & paste of all the sub folders & tracks. It is really too long and absolutely not automatic. I can try DBPoweramp for checking if it is better.

Ok, so not the obvious stuff.

Can you explain in a little more detail by "I am obliged to create a new forlder with Windows Explorer, and I do a copy & paste of all the sub folders & tracks. It is really too long and absolutely not automatic."

If I understand you correctly, you are creating copies of everything you have ripped and then importing those into Squeezecenter? May I ask why?

If so, that is a bit more complicated than it needs to be. In a standard set up you rip your music once, into the structure of your choice. Many people rip into this structure: Top Level Music Folder/Artist/Album/Tracks. I rip into Top Level Music Folder/Album/Tracks. Then you just point Squeezecenter to the Top Level Music Folder (Settings/Basic Settings/Music Library) and do a clear and rescan. Is this what you are doing?

Couple of other suggestions: find your log files - assume you are on Windows of some sort, so try C:/Documents and Settings/All Users/Application Data/Squeezecenter/Logs. Open up the scanner.log file and look for error messages at the time you tried your last clear and rescan. Anything there that would shed any light on why the files aren't being imported?

Otherwise, can you use the Browse Music folder view to navigate to the missing files? If so and you click on them, do they appear in the Squeezecenter library when you navigate back to normal album view?

Finally, I would double check the files aren't there but mistagged (i.e. missing album name or something. If you search for them by song name do they come up at all.

In fact, for example I've had a folder called The Beatles. I've ripped one new album this week-end and after this folder has dissapearred from Squeeze Center. When I Browse Music folder in SC : same thing. So I rename the folder "The Beatles" in "The Beatles Old", I copy all the albums from A to B, I rename "the Beatles Old" in "The Beatles" and I delete "The Beatles Old" : Ouf! as we say in french!. So after the folder The Beatles re-appears in Squeeze Center. I use this structure : Top Level Music /Artist/Album/Tracks. All my songs are correctly tagged with MP3tag (I suppose!) And fyi, please find the log file :
