If music isn’t showing up in Roon, first try to force a rescan of your folder from the Storage tab of Settings.
Rescan misses them again. Does not explain why using one core (MacBook Pro) produces twice as many files as the other (NUC ROCK)
You may also want to check the list of the Skipped Files , which can be found in the Library section of Settings.
Contains only seven skipped files with tag extraction errors.
If that doesn’t work, the following describes some reasons why music in your watched folder might fail to import:
All files are in FLAC format
Songs not imported are listed in the file directory the same way as songs that are imported. Also does not explain why different cores import a different set of songs.
Skipped files are in the 25-35 MB range and will play from the directory using another file player.
Only special characters in file and folder names are forward slash. Does not explain why different cores import a different set of songs.
Blacklisted Files and Folders
None of this applies. Also does not explain why different cores import a different set of songs.
Confirming The Import
Looking up a file by path, why are some Album Artists listed in white text when most are blue text? Example “The Robert Cray Band” is in white and does not show in Artists, but “Robert Cray” is in blue and does show in Artists. “Annie Moses” is in white and does not show in Artists, but “Annie Moses Band” is in blue and does show in Artists. Sometimes an “&’ is in white and sometimes it is in blue. Most or all “/“ are in white.
What does it mean that a track is “unavailable” in red?
Still Having Trouble? Let us know
Still having trouble with inconsistency between multiple imports with the same core and different imports with different cores. Searches for artists give a busy icon and no result.
Still can’t find your file? We’d be happy to look into the issue further, starting by looking at the media.
Please upload a file that’s missing to Dropbox (or similar) and send details about your setup and a link to the file over to Roon Support so we can investigate further.
Please help me first understand why different cores get different results. With 3200 files that import and about that many that don’t it is difficult to find one that consistently does not import. It is difficult to compare the files on NAS with the imported files because Roon sorts them in a different order than they are on disk.*
