Need a fix: albums with same name are merged without notice

Today, I imported five albums and only found four in the library.
I checked and all albums were in the folder to be synced.

So, I finally discovered that the missing album was merged with another existing album with the same name.
I understood that such a merge could happen when album and artist were identical but founding that the new album was merged with another one only because both albums have the same name was a surprise.

Concretely, that means this:

  • You have an album with name 'Chopin" and artist X.
  • You import it.
  • You cannot find as a new album.
  • You search through all albums named 'Chopin".
  • You find the tracks of the new album inserted as a new Disk to an existing album named "Chopin’ but with Artist Y.
  • Of course, you do that check because you noticed the missing album.

We should have either a warning when such merge occur, or a log file listing all actions/decisions taken during sync.

Hope this will be heard. In the meantime I will try to browse through the DB using SQLite to find similar cases I did not notice.

Can you send one track from each album at [email protected] so I can try to reproduce your issue on my side?

Bonjour Antoine,
OK, I will try to do it. I need to find the original version of the album before I modified the title.

OK, files have been sent.

I don’t see it in my Inbox, can you check if the mail has been sent properly?

Antoine,
Désolé, je croyais que le message était parti en utilisant iCloud pour transférer les fichiers.
Apparemment ça n’a pas marché.
Je viens de relancer mais si cela ne marche pas, il faudra que j’utilise un outil pour transférer les fichiers (100M0).
Eric

Antoine,
Does not seem to work using iCloud. Do you have an access to a shared directory or something?
