Description Of Issue
I am attempting to add files to the library via Roon interface on an iMac. I successfully added an album the other day but since then whenever I try to add an album, the transfer gets stuck with the endless spinning wheel.
I did read that I should look for corrupt files in the Roon music folder however, since this is operating as a headless music server, there is no way to access the folder to see all the files other than through Roon. Roon just shows the music files already discovered in the library…
I have rebooted all devices a few times over the past couple of days and Roon simply will not add music to the library. Does anybody have a clue what could be causing this?
Specifically, are the skipped files part of the albums you have attempted to add, but fail (resulting in the endless spinning wheel)?
I get that you can’t delete the skipped files from your headless server within Roon (and I’m assuming you are adding your album folders via drag & drop), but can you remove the album folders that include skipped files by accessing Roon’s network share on your server via smb?
I’m not suggesting that removing the album folders with skipped files would resolve your issue, but it might help eliminate other causes of slowdowns/looping during import. Something to do until Roon support respond to your post.
It might also be worth testing if Roon will sucessfully import music from a USB device (assuming your server has USB).
