Identify and add my content to LMCE
« on: May 22, 2007, 08:02:34 pm »
How do I get LMCE to identify my content and add the album art to content thats already been cataloged? The content is there and it should be identifiable (e.g. Casablanca) but no picture. Same for music.

Take a look in Web admin -> Files & Media -> Media Files Sync

Totallymaxed:
I followed the connection and found the manual functionality but no automation. Also it doesn't show the second disk in my system, except under "other" as a file.
I can find the movies I added through the system but not those that are on a second disk I connected. Is there a special way to add a disk to a core so LMCE will identify its content and manage it? And possibly some suggestions on partition management for those disks? Its curious since I can access the content through the orbiter. LMCE seems to identify it only as a file.


Any suggestions?

Check that the UpdateMedia check box is checked as this scans your attached drives for media and adds them to the DB. Your 2nd disk should have been identified and added automatically is it available from kde at K menu -> System Settings -> Advanced -> Disk & File Systems ? If not that could be the problem. For any content on your second disk to be added to the DB it has to be identified, mounted and scanned by linux-mce

Hope this heps

The drive is recognized and the movies come up in the Orbiter menu. But not in the media management menu. I probably need to add it to pluto somewhere, but I'm not sure now.

OK sorry misunderstood you. I've seen that happen a few times but I don't have any solution for you. It seems to happen sometimes and then not other times. I'd suggest filling in a bug report in Mantis and getting one of the linuxmce IM support guys to look at it for you.
