Roon not finding songs in search

I have just rebuilt my library. Some songs --example, walk on the wild side by Lou reed–should show up on multiple albums. yet, the search shows only one instance of it. Any thoughts?

Hi @Peter_Rustin,

Could you please do us a favor and complete the support template if my suggestions don’t work?

In a preliminary search of your diagnostics it looks like you might benefit from a library cleanup under Roon>Settings>Library. Your databases likely have references to the old locations prior to your rebuild.

You might also make sure your focus is cleared:

Roon Core Machine

Include your operating system and machine info (Model, CPU, RAM).

Networking Gear & Setup Details

Your networking gear (model of routers/switches/etc), connection types (Wifi/Ethernet), and any firewalls, antivirus, or VPN software.

Connected Audio Devices

Specify what devices you’re using and their connection types, like USB/HDMI/Chromecast, etc.

Number of Tracks in Library

Tell us how large your music library is, eg. “30,000 tracks”.

Description of Issue

Tell us about the problem you’re having in as much detail as possible. Screenshots are always appreciated!

Roon not finding all instances of a song. EG, Walk on the Wild Side should show up in 3 places; it’s only showing in 2.


Hi @Peter_Rustin,

Why are you expecting to see three versions? Are these in your library or Tidal/Qobuz? Can you verify that Settings>Storage is pointing to the right location to find these?


Because I know that there are 3 versions of this in my library–one on Transformer; one on New York and one on a compilation. All are in my local library and settings>storage is pointing to the only storage I have: an external HDD attached to my ROCK.
