    Slimserver 'not seeing' random files...limitations?

    Hi,

    I've just installed Slimserver and have been messing with it for a couple of days. I have a largeish collection of music, all in one place, about 20,000 tracks which I manage with MediaMonkey.

    Slimserver seems to be missing almost 4,000 of these tracks... and I can see little logic it it's choice. Some whole albums are missing, sometimes individual tracks from albums... there seems to be no particular file type and my tagging is extremely rigorous and consistant. I've activated all the different file types in the server options, but no matter how many times I try to re-scan...no joy.

    Anyone have an idea why this might be?

    Cheers,

    Jonnpd

    I have a similar problem; it seems to be something to do with MP3 tagging -
    but I have no idea why.
    It doesn't like The Pretenders, claiming that the songs had No Artist, No
    Title and No Genre (even when they did) - so I deleted the files and
    re-ripped them. Now they have Artist, Title and Genre tags, and SlimServer
    will search and find 'The Pretenders' and if I Browse to the Album in Browse
    Music Folder (usually a good way to force Slimserver to see an album) it
    will play it - BUT then it loses it on a rescan! and removes it from the
    list. I have no idea why...

    Are you using anything else to manage your music in Slimserver, like MusicIP or Itunes ?
