cant get me head round how it worked flawlessly to now giving me these is
It seems its split albums into artist/albums ive never heard off






I also have folders mixed up which i had .flac encodes but also did .mp3 for mobile usage

is there a fix can i run songkong over these or jaikoz to get them put back in the right albums...

im a tad lost at this point it appears though ive only randomly checked a small percentage that artist albums are fine its just compilations that have gone a wire or it seems if I have had two versions i
off one album in a directory





thanks
it appears The rolling stones box set singles i had as all been renamed or most have.Do you think having add EP .Live etc is whats caused it .some have been changed like this.




What setting has caused this...???
Never had issues like this at all before








well tbh at this moment i need time out its detroyed my Rolling stones .imsure theres a fix but i vant face even looking through it



Thanks
these are the settings I have been using.Its the first time I have had so many issues .I have found folders marked (2) (4) with the .cue files in and a single track.I have ran Jaikoz to get a list off missing tracks and am currently going through this manually to complete what is missing .I haven't even started on Various just dumped them all in a separate hdd.It appears albums have been created with only a single song in them ...just concentrating on my main directory.Last time using SongKong I had a completed directory with no missing tracks and all updated and a second directory with unmatched which I check or was every now and then though it had been around a year since I last checked the unmatched to see if they had passed. and would be moved to my completed folder main directoryI now feel I'm in hell I'm not panicking thinks off Blakey on "on the buses"








The Filename Mask is set back as default everytime .I set it as what you now mark as Plex.Notsure as to why it does this or do I leave it as is...?
Support files sent

Thanks


Thaanks
I am having a few issues so i will start one at a time until i get a grip:

I have found a issue with Variuos Artists

Im wanting

Various Artists/Album/DiscMulti/Track-Title

Variuos Artists
Album
CD1
CD2
Track-Title

Also in Various I am having completed and moving if matched to release moving albums uncompleted witha single track even

Thanks






Got to add ...SongKong has got a LOT quicker and more lightweight .I have gone to a 7th gen over a 4th gen but nice work I shall leave her monitoring most dff nad not get behind


Thanks for the quick reply and help
I just scrolled quickly through this post and im having same issues asin SongKong is not reaming the folders and if i set it too plex scanner setting after each go at scraping it goes back to default and when scraping is changing data to defalut reaming adding year in Artist/Album.

Hope i explained that enough i have to go leave home and its been bugging me as to what im doing wrong

I will try setting Rename file based on metadata to Yes and hope thats what i was doing wrong

thanks

Rename File Part Only was checked....tbh been a while since i fired up songkong

That would be perfect for me using my default media player foobar
Hi one n all

Not sure if Ive missed a setting but can I add a artist.jpg
Hi

no im looking for trackno and title in the filename only on a single artist release...

C:\Music\Artist - Album Trackno Title.flac : this example seems to me as a single file

C:\Music\Artist\Album\Artist - Album Trackno Title.flac : this example tells me
C:\Music\ Artist\Album (as a folder) - Artist -Album -trackno-Title.flac (as a filename)

paultaylor wrote:
I know that but forgetting about multi disc releases I'm talking about what folder the file should be in

i.e

you have asked for

C:\Music\Artist - Album Trackno Title.flac

don't you really want

C:\Music\Artist\Album\Artist - Album Trackno Title.flac

Please give me a real example with the full path included 


Hi

for a artist with a single disc release I am looking for

Artist - Album Trackno - Title

so as I understand it that would be

U2 - Boy (as a folder)
01 - I Will Follow
02 - Twilight
Hi
what I meant was if it is a multi disc release to create a disc folder ie: cd1 or cd2 etc
Hi

if single disc release :

Artist - Album Trackno Title.flac

multidisc:

Artist - Album -Discno(cd1/cd2/cd3/cd4 as a folder) Trackno Title

Various :

VA - Albumtitle - Year Disc(cd1/cd2/cd3/cd4 as a folder) trackno Artist - Title

just to make sure im explaining it correctly and you can see the folders for how the CD's to be saved




thanks once again
Paul can u answer please if what im asking is possible before I give up as I cant find any info/tutorial to tell me

I want to rename to a single disc relase to

Artist albumtitle : Blah - BlahBlah

file names as trackno - title : 01 - Blah

multi disc release

Artist albumtitle : Blah - BlahBlah

Disc : cd1 as a folder then

Files : 01 - Blah
02 - Blahblah

cd2 as a folder
01 - blah
02 - blahblah


Various

VA Albumtitle Year

VA - BlahBlah - 2014

if multi disc : cd1

file: 01 - title - Artist

also to move and copy if matched I can only get to work as a manipulation..??? Well I just found a link on my main drive C:\Cloud-2330\Vplime_1\muZika of the missing files that I had been saving atleast I know where they ended up

any pointers here would be greatly appreciated..!!! I hope this is explained so you can understand it
well ive rechecked the File and folder correct rename masks by the examples and they say what I want.

This syntax dosent work for various artists and multi disc releases and still can only save and move if matched as a manipulation.

So this throws up issues as it means im back to renaming folders manually and also wont be able to save releases which are not matched to a separate folder......


what my goal is to

Rename folder/ files Tag and move if matched

It appears so far this is working for a single artist disc release.Renaming is a problem with various artists and multi disc release and I cant work out why ! and am sure its possible to do

also I can only 'save and move if matched' successfully if its added as a manipulation otherwise the folder/files just disappear...

so near yet so far
ifnotempty2(albumartist,artist,' ') + ifnotempty(album,' ') + (disctotal>1 ? discno + folderseparator : '')

compilation:

ifnotempty2(albumartist,artist,' ') + ifnotempty(album,' ') + (disctotal>1 ? discno + folderseparator : '') + ' -' + year

I presumed this syntax had this covered.....
so when running folder correct the sub folder is being changed from CD1 to album title and im unsure as why this is or how to prevent it



thanks again
also when saving changes it moves the subfolders out of the folder



so to stop jaikoz from moving the subfolders out of the basefolder on multi a release would I achieve this by shifting base folder to subfolder or subfolder to base folder..???

my concern would be when adding a lot of files it would mean checking all releases before saving
thanks for the syntax just couldn't get that right all now seems present and correct

so next issue is :
Filename 09 - Hall & Oates - I Can't Go For That (No Can Do) (The Ben Liebrand Remix).flac

09 - Hall & Oates - I Can't Go for That (No Can Do) (Ben Liebrand remix).flac

Sub Folder CD1 to Various Artists Hard to Find Classic & Rare Remixes 1\ -2011

the cd sub folder is being changed from CD1 to album title

and when saved gives me a subfolder off \2011
\\CLOUD-2330\Volume_1\NEW Various Artists Café del Mar Dreams 4 2\ -2006 09 - Various Artists - In My Heart.flac

the only problem is the artist on the filename has been changed from artist to various.....so dropping albumartist corrects this but when using this syntax
ifnotempty(pad(trackno,2),' - ') + ifnotempty2(artist, '-' + title
I cant get ' - ' between artist and title

I want the original artist which this does but I cant get a - between artist and song
Hi
after running auto corrector and correct subfolders and correct filename
I get
\\CLOUD-2330\Volume_1\NEW [FLAC]Cafe Del Mar - Dreams (2000-2012)\Cafe Del Mar - Dreams 4 2CD (2006)\Cafe Del Mar - Dreams 4 CD2 09. Rue Du Soleil - In My Heart.flac

to

\\CLOUD-2330\Volume_1\NEW Various Artists Café del Mar Dreams 4 2\ -2006 09 - Various Artists - In My Heart.flac

the only problem is the artist on the filename has been changed from artist to various.....so dropping albumartist corrects this but when using this syntax
ifnotempty(pad(trackno,2),' - ') + ifnotempty2(artist, ' - ' + title
I cant get ' - ' between artist and title


also when saving changes it moves the subfolders out of the folder

so ive just read through all this...I think if I make it clearer it may help and start again

rename folder from metadata:

rename mask : Artist Album

compilation mask: VA Album Year

rename file from metadata :

rename mask : trackno songtitle

compilation mask : trackno artist title

thanks once again...(patience is the virtue)


im using rename from folder :

rename mask :

function ifnotempty(value,sep){
return value.length > 0 ? value + sep : '';
}

function ifnotempty2(value1,value2,sep){
return value1.length > 0 ? value1 + sep :value2.length > 0 ? value2 + sep:'' ;
}

ifnotempty2(albumartist,artist,' ') + ifnotempty(album,' ') + (disctotal>1 ? discno + folderseparator : '')

compilation mask :

function ifnotempty(value,sep){
return value.length > 0 ? value + sep : '';
}

function ifnotempty2(value1,value2,sep){
return value1.length > 0 ? value1 + sep :value2.length > 0 ? value2 + sep:'' ;
}

ifnotempty2(albumartist,artist,' ') + ifnotempty(album,' ') + (disctotal>1 ? discno + folderseparator : '') + ' -' + year

does this allow for multi disc releases....????? as its making multi disc releases all single folders/files

I am going to go over the online help


oh well uninstalled it completely messed everything up
some reason the folder they are saved to they are not in

save and move if matched from volume_1//_CHK to volume_1//muZika is there a problem doing a move/copy on the same drive...???
Jaikoz has changed the base folder



but as you can see there is no data in their



and the directory I added the folders too



are left with all the folders empty of files

is the issue moving to a directory on the same hdd.??

there in the etha somewhere .....!!!!
much appreciated again........

I just started moving over some folders none multi release or various artists ...When I hit save and move it asked what directory vol1/muzika it moved the files and they disappeared.I tried it again and the same thing....

Could we turn this thread into help a n00b learn Jaikoz the right way.......
so for some reason when changing this release
correctmetadata:from filename its moving them from a 3 cd release to one cd



sorry to be a pain but I need to know ive got this correct before hitiing my library and doing it on mass.

I ran a folder and file correct on a single release which worked fine
