    1) Anything in the log? 2) Try a newer nightly (svn-1301, for example)

    There was a specific deadlock that was fixed in 1301, so my guess is that 1301 will fix it for you.

    Probably a song it crashes while trying to scan.

    In your start menu group for firefly, you have an option called “Debug Mode”. Run that, then look at your log file (program filesfirefly media serverfirefly.log). It probably says a lot of stuff like “Found mp3 file: blah blah.mp3”, then a bunch of details. My guess is the last entry says “Found mp3 file: blah blah blah”, and maybe something about a codec, then nothing.

    If that’s the case, the last file it mentions is causing it a problem. Remove the file (mailing it to [email protected], so I can find out why it crashed and fix it in the future) and start it again, and it will probably scan to completion.
