Similar problem: I have many iTunes on OSX generated m4a files, some AAC some lossless, and I can't seem to generate acoustic fingerprints on them using 2.5.2 on linux. It doesn't give me any feedback other than a beep, and the log, which says:

I think you've omitted an important point that you have 'Preferences/General/Base Folder/Include Sub Folders when Searching For Audio Files' checkbox disabled. If you had this enabled (which is the default) then your original drag of the top level folder would have loaded the files as required without any problems. 


I have "include sub folders" selected in both the preferences and the open folder dialog, and it doesn't include the sub-folders using the dialog or drag-and-drop.
OK, here's some weirdness:

I changed my "Match Score" tab so that Artist, Release, and Track Num are all about 33, the rest 0.

I try to match manually:
Artist: Okkervil River (correct)
Album: Down the River of Golden Dreams (correct)
Track Num: 04 (correct)
Title: Track 4 (incorrect)

1) And I get 6 results with scores in the 30s that match the title (unfortunately), track num and time (why time or title?). I cancel.

2) I delete the title, and try again, and get no matches. I cancel.

3) I change the title to "the", try again, and get a 100 score on the correct track. I also get a 67 score on a track 1 from the same album, and it has MusicIP Id checked, which seems wrong to this noob. I select the correct match.

4) I change the title back to Track 4, try again, and it matches 100 again (what changed from 1 that matters?) I cancel.

5) I delete the MB Unique Id, try again, and get the same bad matches from 1. I cancel.

6) I put the MB Unique Id back, try again, and still get the same bad matches from 1. Why didn't I get the same thing as in #4?



(v. 2.5.2 on Kubuntu linux)
