Hi Adion,


The problem is not so much the order in which the harddrives appear, but it's the folders ON the harddisk that don't appear in alphabetical order and can't be sorted as of now.

So with the new beta they are still not showing up alphabetically?

the harddisks do, but the folders on the harddisks don't.

Ok, apparently I only added the sort to the windows code, but not yet to the mac code...

thanks for the quick reply ! it's no a real problem for now, would be cool to have it updated in one of the next betas (although I'm sure there's plenty of other requests and things to do).

i've downloaded the new beta ... unfortunately my djD still shows old tags. and some new tracks are missing completely. it looks like it builds up the tag cache when i open the folder (blue progress bar taking some time). however i still can't update my mp3 tags.

is there a way to do this manually? so i have a work-around until the issue is solved in the program? thx, reini

Removing the database manually should work as well.
It's located in Application Support/djDecks

I mainly use iTunes to sort and organize my music, and most of the times I can drag'n'drop tracks right out of the iTunes library into of the decks. However, some of the tracks are not recognized by djDecks. There's no waveform, and if I'm correct it only reads the filename, not the ID3-tag. Below is an example.

However, when I first copy the track, out of iTunes onto my desktop, and then drag the file into djDecks, it works.

What's causing this?

I've uploaded a new beta.
Start it with Terminal, which allows you to see status messages.
When you drag a song from iTunes to djDecks, it should show a line: loadSong songPath

If you could post the path shown when dragging the files that don't work here that will hopefully help to find the problem.

Ahh... I think I know what the problem is. DjDecks cannot handle certain characters in filename paths.

Loadsong: /Users/Joost/Music/iTunes/iTunes Music/Daniela Stickroth/Stories From The Attic EP/01 Chest In The Attic (Original Mix).mp3 loaded successfully

I think the brackets ([]) that were in the original album title caused the problems, if I place a bracket in front of the changed album title:

Loadsong: /Users/Joost/Music/iTunes/iTunes Music/Daniela Stickroth/%5BStories From The Attic EP/01 Chest In The Attic (Original Mix).mp3 .. it does not load.

I made a smart playlist in iTunes with every track that contained a bracket somewhere in the ID3-tag, and none of those songs loaded into djDecks. So the problem is clear :)

Damn, you're fast! It works great now. No more copying to desktop before loading :)

Another question: any idea about when the next BIG update is going to be? For instance FX-implementation or VST support?

Thanks for your quick help, as always.
