Uniti Core Saving new Covers and freezing up so no more covers can be added until database on my Seagate external 8TB drive music store is rebuilt. (I never added an internal drive). This is the 3rd time I have had to rebuild the database to make things functional as normal. Once the covers freeze up I can’t edit and add any more via internet cover search or from saved photos. I do have my share data switched on as of an hour ago Incase it helps figure out what’s happening. I did a previous posting but nothing solved the problems from the 4 suggestions, until I rebuilt the database again then back to normal again.
When the function of adding and saving covers is frozen. Everything else works, I can edit metadata and save and still Rip new discs. Just can’t save new covers. When I select the cover from online data base or my photos, I see the cover and hit save. I can also search the cover I added looking in newest folder and I see the photo there. However Evey time I add another photo in a different file and go to look in the newest… every time is save a new cover the previous cover disappears when I look in the newest folder. It all keeps repeating with every new cover saved the previous and previous adds before have disappeared.
I can also disconnected the hard drive once and looked at the files on a computer, and the same thing corresponded on e file observations on the computer. There were no attached covers file data corresponding to all the ones that disappeared on the uniti cores app on my iPad.
On thing I did notice after I did bebuuld the database was that… I was able to add about 20 covers or so when I was in the newest folder. But then I wanted to update many covers in a single file by one artist.
So I went to the Artist file and clicked on the more button I order to see all the albums o wanted to swop out and add new covers.
This is where it froze up again and every time I saved a new cover the previous would disappear, and so on and so on.
So my thought might be that since I have perhaps 80 albums by one artist in a folder for that artist. Could it be that the cores operating system doesn’t allow enough time for my previous saved cover to process and save on my external Seagate drive, and the operating system Allows me to quickly keep save another albums cover and another and another before the Seagate external 8TB drive with about 4+TB used on my store.
Maybe the Seagate isn’t sending a signal back to the Uniti core saying it’s ok to send another to the external drive. And all my quick cover adds jam up on the external Seagate drive because it’s a pretty full drive and there are also about 80 albums in that artists folder?
I not a software guy, but I noticed I was doing ok until I saved a whole bunch of covers from the Artists uniti core folder and searched the artist to get to the artist then clicked on the albums and more to see all in the artists folder. And proceed to quickly select and save many many new covers until I noticed the previous covers I saved had all disappeared except the latest or last cover I saved.
So I thinking I have to things to test
- only adding covers from the newest folder
- if I add new covers from the artist folder, perhaps wasn’t a few or 5 minutes i between every new cover save by a single artist.
PS I also did the suggestion from my last post from yesterday, powering off the uniti core unplugged and plugged back it, didn’t do anything to correct the problem of disappearing covers (and as I said if they disappeared on the app on my iPad, I could not find the cover data for that album when I hooked up the drive to my Apple computer and looked at the files. I did see covers attached to others on the computer, but no file if they dissipated on th e Naim app. So nothing is actually attached when they disappeared.
The only temporary solution I’ve found is to take an entire day to rebuild the store on my Seagate external drive.
Help any suggestions or theories?
