I kept getting this error report in the scanner log and working out the cause took some effort.
I use sound juicer on a linux box to rip files and they go into an Artist directory then an Album subdirectory followed by the title as a file name.
I also use windows via samba to access these files and have had problems in the past where linux will recognize special character but not Windows eg ? character.
So I always check the ripped files in Windows and modify names accordingly.

The scanner error turned out to very obscure I had two directories one for Faure' and one for Michael Bubble'
In both cases Linux AND Windows read these directories alright in Explorer
However when the Artwork was being scanned it wouldn't accept the e' character and changing them to just e solved the problem surely this is a buf in SC?
