    why does this happen ?

    so I've just added a couple of more iso images to the DMS and then updated the library when went to MOVIES only 10 movies

    appeared out of the 23 on the hard drive so I go to VIDEOS and look in DMS videos the 10 movies are there but if I look in NEW

    volume all 23 movies are there why does this happen, I have no partition on the hard drive and all iso's are the same format that

    is 4k Blu-ray. I can play all the movies from the NEW volume folder but only main movie and they have no covers or metadata..

    how is it that DMS can not see the other 13 movies on this hard drive when it previously could see all before I updated.....

    I thought Brexit was getting to me this DMS is coming a close second

    Thanks.
    Ting, please consider adding a control parameter called 'Manual Control'...a global '.nomedia' if you will that would shutdown scraping on the entire content of the DMS where that parameter was set by the user. That way the user that spends a lot of time making sure their content is right doesn't have it messed up by an errant program glitch or bad coding. The setting of this parameter should also enable an 'Import Cover Artwork' that would allow the import of .jpg, .jpeg, .bmp and other photo extensions and would resize them correctly for displaying on the poster wall.

    Just a thought!

    At the top of the forum list there is a "sticky" post that describes the naming convention recommended by DVDFAB. I use this convention when transferring file to the MS and get about 80% success rate with scraping. Not perfect, but I can live with it. The ones that scrap wrong (or don't scrap at all) I correct using the editing functions built into the MS itself, not via the WEB page. The "secret" here is to use the name and date for the movie as shown at themoviedb.org.
    passkey names the files correctly from within the metadata on the disc, this has been the way I've done it from the get-go. its been ok but sometimes the scraping goes awry and I do to have to edit

    I just wanted to know why this time when I added a couple of movies in the exact way I've always done the DMS messes the whole set up with wrong titles, wrong thumbnails, missing movies

    when it was ok,ish before I added those extra movies....people use different file types, MP4/ AVI /MPEG/ etc so for me I would like to get my own thumbnails, and synopsis, and anything else

    about a certain movie I have and don't bother with scraping.

    you say "because they are not correctly added to library" ?? I use DVDfab passkey to backup my Blu-rays on to the HDD that I

    then insert into the DMS and then I update path and then update library, then the DMS goes and messes it all up by loosing

    almost half my movies, and puts up movie posters for which I have no movie. For instance THRILLER by Michael Jackson.

    DVDfab passkey names the file from the metadata on the disc so I cant be naming the movies wrong. Actually I've given up on

    the wrongly advertised slick workings of the DVDfab movie as seen on the DVDfab website that promises a movie poster wall

    and other things. and I just play my movies with the file search in the DMS at least it does play 4k Blu-rays pretty well.

    Maybe when DVDfab movie FIRMWARE v1.0.5.7 Beta is out I will give it another look, but for now forget it

    Us free minded Americans wish you the best!

    We are in a fight with the global hard left here as they try to implement socialism in these united states by taking over the weak minded DimmycRAT party, the same party(Dixecrats) that instituted slavery, went to war to keep it and tried to spread it via the Kansas-Nebraska Act because they were to lazy to pick their own cotton!

    I don't think it will turn out like they hope it will!

    totally agree with the above, I wasn't old enough to vote to join back in the day but I am able to vote now and I voted leave . But our so called democratic government are making a right mess of it. The country voted to leave simple . So tell Junker and his feather nesting cronies were off and if you want a deal you know where we are you've got till 29th march .

    Wish I had a suggestion for you...but I don't because I don't deal with .iso formats. I really had to let go of the notion that the poster wall was going to 'work as advertised' a long time ago. The only thing that saved my sanity was the '.nomedia' file trick where it excluded directories from being scraped. While this cleaned up my poster wall big time not all my movies show up on it...even to this day.

    I use the file/folder browser app to get to any media I want to play.
