Bug while sending back orpheans to itunes

Postby zmr » Sat Aug 29, 2009 3:34 am

Hello

I bought SongSergeant a couple of days ago, and it's really helpfull for me.

I've found a bug with the orphans tool. When I select a file to add it to itunes, it is trashed instead !
And of course, if I try to trash it, it is trashed really...
Well, it's easy to take the orphan by myself and to add it to itunes, but I'm a bit disapointed by this bug :-(

Mac Os X.5.8, iTunes 8.2.1, SongSergeant 1.0(17).

[Edit] Sorry, reading the post "Introducing Song Sergeant", I discovered that a new version has been released yesterday... 1.0.1(20)

But still, I can't add the orphan to Itunes : it no longer trashed, but simply not add...
What I did :
- scan of the library
- selection of an orphan
- click on "add selected to itunes" button
Then, the selected track disapeared from the Song Sergeant orphans list, is still in its folder on my HD (no longer trashed ;-) ), but nothing appears in itunes :-(

Well, I have a lot of orphans, due to a HD crash, but I can wait a bit for a 1.02 version :-D

Diagnosing orphan add to iTunes not working

Postby beastie » Sat Aug 29, 2009 2:45 pm

Knowing three things could help me figure out what's happening on your system:

In iTunes' Preferences (Advanced), what is the state of "Keep iTunes Music folder organized"?

Also "Copy files to iTunes Music folder when adding to library"?

Finally, open Console (in Applications/Utilities) and see if Song Sergeant logged any messages. If you don't see any messages from SS, relaunch it and try to add some orphans again.

So, previously, my itunes settings were :
- Keep organized : no
- copy files : yes
And no SS logs in Console.

What I tryed :
- to set itunes as : yes/yes, yes/no and no/no => nothing happens but creation of the "adopted" playlist (well, and yes, now I have to put back each cover and text file in the right folders... damn' !)
- to trash the SS pref file, and then (after rewriting my SN : hopefully you didn't chose to put a very long and strange SN :-D )
- to set again itunes in each different possibility...

SS can create the "adopted" playlist, but failed to add the file to itunes.

Add Orphans to iTunes

Thanks for the feedback. We're working on reproducing this behaviour here so that we'll know for sure when it is properly fixed for 1.0.2.

I've had a huge trouble with the MacOs X.5.8 update file this week-end (kernel panic...), and I suppose it happened due to something wrong on my HD (its not very clear yet because Disk Utility doesn't see any problem with the HD, but I had to use my Leopard DVD to launch DU because my imac refused to boot, stopped at the grey screen-little wheel stage).
So now I'm waiting for a new HD, and will make a new clean install.
Hopefully the suspected SS bug will dissapear ? I'l let you know ASAP.
