Bug Reports / No track info when inserting or ripping CD's
« on: January 30, 2021, 11:39:38 PM »
I am having a problem very similar to the one I had in this thread,

When I insert a CD MusicBee fires up and starts playing the disc just fine.  There are no error messages displayed.

However, the track listing shows only Track 01, Track 02, etc. and no Album, Year or Artist is given for each track.  However, the Time and Bitrate are given for each track.   The same CD in iTunes shows all the information just fine.

If I try to rip the CD the same problem happens in the rip dialog.

I have the same PC that I had in that thread.  It is a fast DELL XPS8930 desktop with 64 GB of ram.  My internet connection is consistently over 590 Mbps.

I've not had any problems since the last issue was resolved until about 3 weeks ago.  I've tried everything.  It started on MB 3.4.7586.  I've tried 3.4.7687 and the same problem exists.  I've tried going back to 3.3.7491 and the problem exists. 

Any help appreciated.

Thanks Steven,

That seems to have done the trick.

Me also.  Is there a way to change it back to the view I was using for all playlists so I don't have to change them one at a time?

I just checked and all of them are lower case .jpg.

Thanks for the idea.  It was worth checking

Thanks for the links.  I tried rebuilding the library and deleting the cache and neither of these helped.

I was just hoping someone here that used (or had used) iTunes might have run into this issue before or maybe knew where iTunes found the artwork.  

I poked around on the web before (and after) posting here and really didn't have any luck.  

I don't plan on going back to iTunes as I like MusicBee, but it just bothers me that iTunes won't display all the album covers since all my folders have Cover.jpg files.

I found an album where the cover does show in iTunes.  I went into MusicBee and opened the editor and went to the Artwork tab and hovered over the album cover there.  At the bottom it says "Cover.jpg".

I found an album where the cover does not show in iTunes.  Hovering over the album cover shows this at the bottom, "Cover.jpg".

So both show Cover.jpg in MusicBee, yet only one of them displays the cover in iTunes.

Any idea why this might happen?

Thanks for the reply.  I have the options set to save the album cover art to Cover.jpg.  How do I tell if the artwork is also embedded in the file?  I haven't done that intentionally.

I was wondering if anyone could help me.

I share the same folder structure for both MusicBee and iTunes.  I use MusicBee as my primary music player.

All of my album covers are in files called Cover.jpg in the same folder as the song track files.  For some reason MusicBee will display all of them, but iTunes only displays maybe 20% of them.

Any ideas why this would be the case?  I know this is a MusicBee forum, but I was hoping someone might know what is going on.


The sync of 10 playlists finished.  All the songs were copied.  I immediately started another sync.  I expected nothing to be copied as everything was just copied.  Instead it looked like maybe 40-50 songs were copied.  When that finished I ran another sync and the same 40 or 50 songs were copied.

I guess I'll just go back to using the wired sync since wifi sync hasn't worked for me.



I see. 

OK, I did a wifi sync for one playlist and it copied all the songs.  I immediately did a wifi sync again on the same playlist.  It ended immediately. 

I did the same on a second playlist and it behaved the same. 

Now I am syncing 10 playlists to see how that works.  If that works then I'll try syncing all my playlists.  The only problem is that takes hours.

I'll let you know how it goes.

Thanks for your help.



Do you mean an "all music" sync rather than a playlist sync?  I can't do this as I have way to much music to fit on my phone.


Thanks for the reply. 

That didn't help for me.  The phone had just been booted up when I tried the sync and it sill copied all songs and all playlists.


Just wondered if anybody had any other ideas?  The wifi sync is still insisting on copying all songs in a playlist rather than only new ones and all playlists rather than only new ones.

I would like to use wifi sync rather than wired sync if I could.  Wired sync works as expected.


Oops... ignore the part about "server not found".  I had forgotten to re-enable wifi sync in MusicBee.

With that enabled I don't get the error, but I also don't see any device name in the app settings.


If I go into the app and look at settings, there is no device name that I can see.  All it has is "select the storage for your files" either "internal storage" or "removable SD card" and a check box for "enable debug logging".

Just now I started MusicBee and started the app and now I'm getting an error "Server not found. Ensure MusicBee is running and Windows firewall is no blocking MusicBee".

It worked earlier today... I did the cable sync.  MusicBee is running and I don't use Windows Firewall and Norton 360 is not blocking anything (it didn't earlier either).
