My itunes says i have 7,677 songs but squeezebox library only shows 2,200 songs.

Any thoughts? Running on mac osx leopad, server 7.6.1

Thanks

Do any of your iTunes songs have DRM? These won't play in SbS. Otherwise do a clear and rescan and look at your scanning log.

Are all the songs on Leopard in the same folder? To be missing that many, I think you have music in iTunes in more than one place.

If that's true, you will need to put a link in the folder you choose in LMS to the other music folder(s.) This will let LMS find all your music since it follows links.

If you are using the latest LMS, you can put an additional folder on the settings/general tab.

they are all in one place. what's weird is you scan once it picks up say 2,200 songs, you scan again it picks up 2,500 or so. Totally baffled. DRM accounts for a few hundred only. does ticking the use itunes box matter? (doesnt seem to) does AAC vs MP3 make a difference?? does one or other work better for squeezebox? sorry if i sound dumb

Try updating to 7.7.1 a couple of iTunes related issues have been corrected since 7.6.1

examples
#17358 - Importers (MusicIP, iTunes) are not run during a rescan
#17530 - iTunes Plugin on Linux can fail to find files with Unicode paths

It might be better to un-check the iTunes option and just point LMS to the folder.

There is a java script (note the space) that will move the artwork from iTunes to LMS cover.jpg files.
