I think I’ve got it. There seems to have been an install issue… since I’m a newbie, I may have done it wrong. I just installed over the top of 1372 and the db scan didn’t work… here is an extract from mine…

INSERT INTO songs VALUES(21333,’/media/audio/Anne McCaffrey/The White Dragon/10-47 Track 47.m4b’,’10-47 Track 47.m4b’,’10-47 Track 47.m4b’,”,”,”,”,’m4b’,”,”,”,”,”,0,0,600000,873417,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,2,’m4b audio file’,1155528150,1155528150,0,1157455766,0,0,0,’unkn’,0,0,0);

The last one is the m4b file and it registers as “m4b audio file” and “unkn”. When I removed the mt-daapd package and loaded 1376 the scan worked. Here is what it looks like now…

INSERT INTO songs VALUES(17687,’/media/audio/Greg Bear/Star Wars – Rogue Planet/1-03 Rogue Planet 1 C.m4b’,’1-03 Rogue Planet 1 C.m4b’,’Rogue Planet 1 C’,’Greg Bear’,’Star Wars – Rogue Planet’,’Books & Spoken’,”,’m4a’,’Lucasfilms’,”,”,”,”,128,44100,222981,3623362,2000,3,26,1,5,0,0,0,0,0,2,’AAC audio file’,1155756024,1155756024,0,1157501333,0,0,0,’mp4a’,0,0,0);

Now… when I look at the XML from a full iTunes client it looks like this…

Now I’m not sure what all the differences I should be looking for are but I think the type needs to change to “Protected AAC audio file” and I’m going to bet that the type will also need to change. Right?
