    Have setup another Slug for a friend. He has a Pinnacle Soundbridge.
    Ripped 3488 tracks (mp3) into the music directory on the slug.
    Firefly scans and finds 2604 of these files which play fine on the Soundbridge.
    I-Tunes 6.0.4.2 sees the Slug and finds 2604 files!

    I-Tunes library is also pointed at the Slug mp3 folder…but it finds 3026 tracks.
    Windows explorer can search the mp3 folder and finds 3488 tracks…..
    I have run the chmod command on the mp3 folder just in case…

    Windows Media Player finds all the music and plays perfectly.

    Running SVN1372, Slug V2.3R63 beta6.8
    Where has all the music gone???

    Are they something other than .mp3? Maybe .aiff or .m4a or something else?

    Find a missing track first, then figure out why it isn’t in mt-daapd. Could be a file extension thing — .m4a files not being picked up, which could be fixed by adding .m4a to your extensions list in the web config, or it could be permissions.

    Could they possibly have the extension MP3 (uppercase).

    I have had similar problems before with mt-daapd only finding mp3 and not MP3 filenames.

    This may seem not to make sense, but it caught me out some time ago.

    Hi All,
    I checked the file permissions….all OK.
    All of the files are mp3, No MP3.

    Upgraded to 1417. All perfect.

    Thanks again. đŸ˜†
