Browsing catalogs on disks from Orbiter
« on: May 20, 2008, 12:12:25 pm »
Is this possible?
I have a catalog structure that is made up of album-artist, and i would like to be able to browse my disks instead of LMCE making a HUGE library which is hard to browse ..

Please give me an pointer if its possible...

Dude, that's what the filters and search are for...

but if you must... tell it to view by Filename.

Filename shows both files and folder structure.

What is it missing? Are you using LMCE folder structure on all shares that it auto-detected? Check in the admin site under Media Files Sync to see if any of your folders/files have not been sync'd to the database yet.

As Thom says, using the Filename sort is the complete answer you are looking for, so don't go off looking for other solutions, you have an issue with your system. Fix that and you will have your solution.

Thx.. Here's the problem: In Admin Media Sync Files.. only in videos 2 entrys shows up!.. NOTHING else.. the 2 entrys is on the OS-disk of the system.. IE NOTHING on the 500GB USB disk i have shows up... still i can search them and see them in Orbiter in the normal fashion.. both videos and audio files ... so.. what to do... ... I realy apreciate all help, good work from everybody, and I'm not about go give up on LMCE yet ;)
