I’m running Firefly on WinXP, with my music tracks sat on a Netgear SC101 NAS drive. I’ve copied my iTunes Music Library.XML file into the same folder as the music files. Firefly seems to be scanning every song twice. The song count on the admin web page doubles and I can see each track twice on my Soundbridge.
When I delete the XML file from my NAS drive I will then see only one copy of the music files, but I also lose my iTunes playlists. If I build a smart playlist with Firefly, to replace an iTunes playlist, it ends up being empty.
What setup should I use so that I end up with only one visible copy of all songs, plus use of playlists (iTunes or Firefly) that aren’t empty?
1. make sure you are running latest nightlies
2. go into the web interface on the config page and set “case sensitive” under “scanning” to “Yes”
3. Go back to status and do a full scan.
That should do it.
If that doesnt’ work, then follow the instructions in the post above to look at a file that is duplicated and see what the paths are.. Then you’ll know where the duplicate files are.
Do you *have* two copies of the files? One on the nas, one on your workstation?
