    Chita79: I already have some automation involved that keeps you from having to re-update the entire database... If you remove a directory or file from any file browser in the entire app, it will look to see if any of the files match a music extension and remove them also from your database... Also when you are ripping a CD, it will autmatically insert the new song information into the DB, which means your music instantly shows up without having to re-run.. Once I finish the file copier, it too will automatically append any music files straight to the DB... So it will take care of everything for you so you don't have to rescan all your MP3's...

    As for monitoring a folder so that you can drag and drop using windows explorer and have them append into the DB, I am not sure... But once I finish my file-sync, this will defineltly also append all new info without having to re-scan...

    I don't think the tag reeding problem is related to read only files, I have this problem only on 1 pc, on the other it works perfectly. The mp3 listed are the same, the two machines are in Lan, and the working pc reads the mp3 from a mapped network drive from the other pc

    Yea, but are you logging on with the same user from both machines? Perhaps the first machine has read/write priviligies, while the second machine has read-only rights on the mp3 host... (Just guessing here...)

    the reading fails on the machine which phisically hosts the files, then I share this folder and from the other machine I can normally read tags

    Strange. My files are not read-only. The CarPC is basically a fresh machine that I just built, running Windows 2000. All it has is Windows 2k with all service packs and updates, music, iTunes, and centrafuse. Centrafuse works great in everything _other_ than tag reading.

    Anything I could try? If I get a chance today, I'll make a "new" music directory with one MP3 in it and see if it can read that. What's strange is that it doesn't start reading and barf, it just does nothing as far as I can tell.

    Appreciate the help - can't wait to get it working


    EDIT: Just tried it on my desktop PC, and it doesn't work there either. I also made a test directory with just one MP3 and it won't read it. Maybe it's an ID3v1 vs v2 issue? Will Centrafuse read both?

    UPDATE:

    I fixed it. Centrafuse requires Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) version 2.6 or greater.

    I found out by trying to rip a CD and then see if it read the ID3 tags from that. Ripping caused it to crash with an MDAC error.

    You can download MDAC v2.8 here:
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

    I also installed the .NET framework 1.1 Service Pack 1, prior to updating the MDAC layer, but I don't think that was necessary. It's available through Windows Update or from Microsoft's web page as a 10MB download.

    I know .NET 1.1 SP1 isn't required because I dont' have it on my machine... I didn't know about the MDAC requirement... I will look into this...

    thanks for the info...

    serendipity: What version of windows did you have installed? I just did a fresh install of WinXP SP2, windows update, .NET 1.1, managed directx and CENTRAFUSE ran fine... imported the ID3's perfect... I didn't have to install MDAC, unless it was on the windows update list?

    Isn't MDAC 2.6 or higher included with XP SP2? What versions of windows you running? I want to add this to my requirements, but I think its only if you aren't running XP SP2...
