Issue with detecting new albums in library.
« on: April 05, 2020, 02:48:53 pm »

Hi

I would like to get some help regarding two issues with displaying albums in my music library.

1. Sometimes when I upload an album to a folder where is my whole music collection, MC is not displaying that album at all, no matter how many times I click on refresh, I checked tags and all seems to be just fine. Sometimes I can see uploaded album without manually refreshing it, sometimes it takes time and worst-case scenario, I don't see new album at all, how to solve this issue?
2. When I change folder names, the album is still visible but I see inaccessible duplicates of old folder name/route, it's visible on the attached screen, I reorganized my collection recently and I have to manually remove every duplicated song? is there any faster way to get rrid of unnecesary files?

I'm using Media Center version 24.0.75 (64bit) on Windows 7.

It may have to do with your "folder permissions"  There is a bug in my system on Windows 10 where I have to go reset shares on folders at random times after adding or updating..  Maybe the same on your Windows 7 setup.

I'd check the folder/subfolder permissions on your files in windows explorer.

How do I check this? Is it about deselecting "read only" on the folder with music? Because if yes then I tried and for some reason, I can't deselect this feature on any folder.

Great tutorial, I've checked this and I have already all permissions as allowed, it turns out, it was my MC settings that was preventing to re-add previously deleted albums from displaying, now I see all albums again, some times I must wait couple minutes to see them but they are there.
