Description of Issue
Albums sometimes not found. This seems to affect ‘special edition’ 2 disc etc type versions. Often the second disc is not found/displayed. Not to be found in Skipped files or under HOme - recent activity - added either as the actual album nor an unidentified album. On re ripping still does not appear. As it is we wait 2 weeks before adding new content to give the database a chance to get updated.
Is there some kind of workflow to resolve these issues?
Thank you, i will give your suggestions a try. Given that we rip albums via the CD burner on the Vortexbox/Sonicorbiter it would appear this method cant be relied upon with multiple disc releases, unless one wants to edit in Roon (or the database) later on?
I just been trying to find the missing second disc (Jack Savoretti Europiana/Encore disc 2) but cant find it as yet. The advice regarding identifying discs properly only really helps on discs one has not yet added. The path search does not find the album either. The artist folder does not contain the second disc either. Presumably going forward i cant use the CD ripper on the core to add albums with more than 1 disc?
The image of "encore’ on the screenshot is the Qobuz version. Not sure why there are 2 though.
I’ll try again: If all works well, there is no “disc 2” to be found! This is a (multi-disc) album (1, one album only) named Europiana by Jack Savoretti! All the content (tracks) of the multiple discs are contained in that one single album.
Thank you. I have checked again and the album only contains 11 tracks. The Qobuz version including the second disc (part of the same album) contains 17 tracks whcih is correct. If i try re-ripping the album it does not show up, presumably because Roon has already put it somewhere else and so ignores it as a duplicate?
I understand your instructions but this only really works if one is ripping for the first time, using the server built in ripper at least.
Likely because you are looking at/into the 11-track release group instead of the 17-track release group.
In your screenshot, both release groups are shown. Please use the versions tab of the 17-track release group to find your ripped version thereof instead of the Qobuz one.
So far you still failed to provide evidence that something is amiss with Roon and the example given.
Why re-ripping what is already ripped? On default settings, Roon hides all duplicates no matter the source – only one version marked as primary is shown.
Again: Why re-ripping what is already ripped? What instructions are you referring to? The one about searching tracks by path?
Note: Hidden duplicates are hidden. They don’t get displayed. You can’t search for them in any way. They only show-up in the versions tab of the release group (album in Roon).
Which ultimately leads to the “find tracks by path” FAQ I already linked (Hint: search for a track title from disc 2). As your example is about duplicates, you may have to change Roon’s default settings for it to work:
