    Question Scanner has trouble with artist names composed of numbers

    Windows SBS 7.54

    The scanner has missed new albums by the group "36" twice so far. I can manually browse to them by the folder function.

    Methinks the scanner has trouble with some groups that have numbers as their names.

    This appears to be a continuing problem with 7.6.1.

    SBS refuses to show the group "36" in the new music section.

    Hm ... I have tracks and albums by 020200, 1020, 162, 1919, 1979, 311, and 813 in my library which all seem to appear correctly. *shrug*

    Tags are all good.

    Some numbered groups appear correctly. For some reason "36" won't.

    Nevermind. "36" has appeared in the New Music section after the last scan.

    So it was only missing in the New Music section?

    Probably because of the timestamps on the files.

    Nope. I always alter the files to update the timestamps when I first put them on the server.

    7.6.1? SBS version? Phase of the moon?

    If you're happy, I give up. Enjoy the music.
