Database corruption - Musicbrainz Album Id tagging corrupted
#1
I have been successfully running Kodi on my RPi however whenever i scan my music folders the database gets created with about 90% of songs correctly but the remaining songs are listed under 'Zero 7' (which happens to be the last artist/subfolder in the directory). I have deleted and rebuilt the database many times and checked all of the ID3 tags. If i look in the database file directly it is definitely incorrect in there and there are far too many to update them manually. Any suggestions for the cause of this/solutions?

Thanks

Can you upload your database to https://uploadfiles.io/ and post the link here. If you don't want to make the link public, hit the Report button on my post and paste the link there. One of the other mods will pass it on if I don't get to it in time.

A Debug Log might also be of use, but in this case it will require you to clear your library and rescan.

Any chance you have an artist.nfo or album.nfo in your ROOT music folder?

You'll see idAlbum 9 has been assigned to many many random songs

@chrisryan43 I have checked your db (and hidden the link so only mods can see it) and you have a problem with your music file tagging. What software did you use to tag these files?

Anyway you need to fix the tagging of the 2805 music files that, instead of having a valid mbid in the XXX: Musicbrainz Album Id tag, have the text "usicBrainz Album Id". This tag corruption is causing Kodi to see all the songs as belonging to the same album (with a mbid = "usicBrainz Album Id"). I can tell you the 715 folders effected if that helps.

Not sure what tagging software would have caused this problem, as the other mbid tag data e.g. for track and artist etc. seems to be correct. But I do vaguely remember a user having had this particular tag corruption before, so could be interesting to know what happened for you.

Good advice from me in that thread too, so have a read.

Thank you so so much. I stripped out all of the MBID tags and all good now. My collection became very messed up years ago and I tried using lots of different applications to fix it so it could have been any one of those that caused the issue although MusicBrainz Picard was one of the last things i used so not sure what could have caused the corruption since then.

Thanks again

Somebody needs to explain that you don't quote when you're replying to something just above your post. Otherwise we'll have to read it twice, won't we? The Great Full-Quote War of 1657 was started by someone just like you.

I think this error is because your collection is messy and uses many different applications to fix it, however each application will generate more missing files. You should delete all applications that have been installed because it may be the cause of the error.
