Hello, first let me say that I'm very excited about the opportunity for SongKong to help clean up the metadata for my music collection for Plex as Amazon has caused several issues with tags by substituting higher bitrate versions of various songs but not always matching the original album. Needless to say this also means some duplicate songs.

Now for the problems... So I've ran SongKong three times now, twice over night and once for several hours, but all to no avail. Every time SongKong has hung after a few hours with no numbers changing but a circle of wait cursor whenever I mouse over the window.

The first two times I ran the trial version and against MusicBrainz internet server.

The third run, which hung very similarly was against a local MusicBrainz VM which I setup per instructions from this site and replicated and reindexed before starting the third SongKong attempt.

I'm running this on Windows 7 x64 with a Core i7 965EE and 24GB of memory. The main program is running on my primary SSD and the media library is on my ReadyNAS mapped via SMB to a local drive.

I do not see any indication as to why SongKong hangs and won't complete. Note here are the numbers for where it hung with the last run:
Songs loaded: 5676
Songs fingerprinted: 5676
Songs ignored because already matched: 0
Songs matched to MusicBrainz release: 2753
Songs matched to MusicBrainz recording only: 41
Songs matched to Discogs release: 2382
Songs matched with artwork: 2558
Songs saved: 2623
Completed: 2623
Errors: 0

Another point of consideration is that if I close down SongKong with it hung, when I restart it will mention that it didn't finish and will then provide the option to see the report.

Note I captured a screenshot if you are interested in additional details.

Please assist as it has been frustrating that I've been unable to have SongKong complete successfully.

I'm not sure no-one else has reported an issue with hanging, I suspect you have a particular problem with one of your files. Could you try modifying the
For Songs already matched to Musicbrainz releases to Ignore and and run again.

thanks Paul (Administrator)

Thanks Paul, that did it.
