Description of Issue
My problems started when I joined the ‘Early Access’ program .Machine behaviour became erratic (eg.“playback failed as file did not load”) and it seemed as if the new software didn’t ‘take’. After trying to fault find the cause and hoping for an update that might return the system to normal operation I relented and returned to production level but unfortunately the main problem has remained . Periodically the track counter counts down from 45k to zero and the internal drive is no longer visible as storage in Roon and remotes report Zero Artists ,Albums , Tracks or Composers .
Occasionally , a complete reboot will return the Storage to the Nucleus + webpage and Settings Storage on the remote listings but this after 2-3 days with no access to music .
Yes , all music is on internal ssd . For the last year I no longer use streaming services ( other than Apple Music occasionally outside of Roon) . The counter reduces as if it is databasing again but stops at zero. Rebooting or reinstalling software sometimes triggers a new database and the reappearance of the ssd under General>Storage and the web interface but this can often take a few days to happen.
No , I have been reluctant to open Nucleus+ for fear of triggering a re-format. The unit has not moved since install and , while a lot of the music on it is backed up , some newer material has not . Exporting from or adding to the library frequently gets stuck and triggers the dreaded countdown again !
Hi Ben ,
It has not happened recently although I’ve only been using it lightly as adding new albums often triggered the dreaded countdown to zero and even with Roon Arc I regularly got ‘poor connection’ notices when trying to play back . I was toying with the idea of trying Early Access again though it did not work reliably last time and when I reverted , the constant folder disappearances kept recurring . I eventually managed to create a new backup and things have settled down for now .
Small update with mostly good news . Fewer playback errors and only once has the crash/rebuild occurred in several weeks . One new problem I’ve noticed is with multiple versions of some albums eg. Bonnie Raitt ‘Nick of Time’ which should be available in 16/44.1 and also 24/96 hi-res but instead are both listed as ‘Mixed Formats’ editions where a few tracks from each have been swopped into the other version !
I will follow your instructions over the weekend. About the storage , when the library disappears so does any mention of Internal Storage on Nucleus+ webpage and also from Roon>Settings >Storage . So I knew once I saw Internal Storage appear on the webpage that the library would reappear!
Hi again ,
Really fed up again , constant 'track failed to load ’ error messages and too many ‘playback failures’ . It seems I get 1 step forward and then 2 back . So , is my music still really on the internal SSD where it has always been or not ?
So , today , I am back to zero across the library and ,after a reboot , the storage has reappeared again only this time on Nucleus+ webpage it is labelled in red ‘Not Ready’ and shows 4tb of available space !
