Hello. I'm running Manjaro, kernel 5.14.2-1, Ryzen 9 3900x, 32mb ram, Nvidia 1050Ti.
I rip all my CD's to FLAC and copy them to an external 2TB HD formatted to NTFS which in turn feeds a Synology NAS and Sonos.
I really like Strawberry and it's been my default player for a while now. But I have a problem. No matter how often I rescan my collection there are scores of artists/albums not picked up in the Collection list. For example: I scan to artist/album and in my external drive currently it has 61 artists starting with 'A'. Strawberry shows 4. I rescan constantly hoping the lost ones will be found but I think not only am I not gaining I think I'm losing more. Last week there were certainly artists showing that aren't showing now!
I've checked permissions, stray spaces etc and have found no logical reason these aren't showing when others all ripped in exactly the same way are.
Last night I ripped three CD's I had purchased that day. Gillian Welch's new album, an old John Mayall CD and a 50's Rock 'n' Roll compilation. Only the last one is available to play in Strawberry.
To investigate possible solutions I am currently changing my default Strawberry collection folder from the external HD to the NAS just to see what difference that makes. I'll also (having wiped my collection) rescan the external HD again to see if a refresh works any wonders.
I had previously used Media Monkey successfully (on Windows) and am aware that I can run that under Wine but I am reluctant to do so.
Any help or suggestions would be very gratefully received!
