Do multi disc albums need to have all the discs in the same folder when matching using the "Only allow match if all songs in album were matched" option? Or is it smart enough to look in multiple folders?

I only ask because I see a lot of folders left behind (disc1, disc2, etc) after running a batch of folders w/ the above mentioned option turned on because I only want to match and move complete albums.

Thanks!

No its smart enough to look in multiple folders, although it does depend on how they are named. But is it leaving songs behind or just empty folders because I do have the following issue http://jthink.net:8081/browse/SONGKONG-642 which I confess I havent look into yet.

So I'm still coming across a lot of 2 disc releases in my collection that are separated in to 2 folders and SK won't match them. If i load the 2 folders in to Jaikoz, it has no problem matching to the correct Discogs album and it adds the discogs URL metadata.

Even after saving the files in Jaikoz and opening the 2 folders again in SK, it still refused to find a match.

Also, I came across another scenario today, same setup, 2 disc set separated in to 2 folders. However SK only matched disc 1 and moved it, left behind the folder containing all of disc 2. For this case, I manually moved both discs in to a single folder and re-ran SK, and it did properly match the 2 disc set. So not sure why it did that either.

Oh yeah, this is with SK 3.8.

Thanks!

Thanks received support stuff.

The Nightlife 2 (A Drum And Bass Odyssey) issue is actually caused by this issue http://jthink.net:8081/browse/SONGKONG-799 and http://jthink.net:8081/browse/SONGKONG-800

Fixing either of these would allow a good match

These problems fixed for next release

Okay your second example consists of sub folders of a a folder each representing a separate disc of one release, so we have 16 tracks one one disc and 2 on the other and we want to match to http://www.discogs.com/Young-Jeezy-The-Inspiration/release/5100080

I've tested this with both Only allow match if all songs in grouping match to one album and Only allow if Match all tracks to Release enabled.

The trouble is that MusicBrainz does not contain this 18 track release only the 16 track release as and the 2 track release as another. Now SongKong recognises that these two subfolders may be part of the same album and tries to match all 18 songs to one album but fails, however this having failed because it then tries matching the separate folders and matches the 16 track release to one folder, (not sure why it doesn't match the 2 track release at the moment) and so Discogs gets passed the 16 songs to match rather than the full 18 songs.

Now you may wonder why does the MusicBrainz matching work allow 16 track match when you asked SongKong to Only allow match if all songs in grouping match to one album. Well its difficult to the group multiple folders to one group accurately so if no match is found its reasonable approach to check each folder one at a time.

Note:If you do actually put all 18 songs into a single folder then you get the behaviour you want, no match to Musicbrainz and all 18 tracks matched to Discogs.

One solution I could envisage working on this case is after failed MusicBrainz match of grouping consisting of multiple folders it tries to match that grouping to Discogs, before doing Musicbrainz match folder a t a time. Whether this makese sense in general I need to think about a bit more.
