    Groove Music not storing anything


    I've been trying to get my music recognised in Groove Music.

    All of my music is stored in two directories on a NAS, I have the two defined to Groove, they appear to have carried forward from my Windows 7 install. They are defined as UNCs but I've also tried mapping a drive.

    I've just watch it scan the library and populate albums artists and songs, but when it completed the library showed zero songs and all the entries it was showing disappeared.

    I did find one post that suggested there was a problem using a NAS for your music, but this seems to be at odds of it seemingly finding everything and then discarding it.

    The files are 99% MP3s.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    :)

  2. What is Groove / Store's music file format and is it lossless?

    I have just had the Windows 10 upgrade and found Groove - plus the offer to buy music via the Store as well as the Groove Music Pass.

    What is the file format for Store and Groove Music Pass? Ideally there should be the choice of lossless whether wma flac or wav but I'm not going to sign up to anything until I know what is being sold.

  3. Can't download Groove app

    Hi Deborah,

    The link given to you is actually an email address. You wouldn't need it to download Groove Music for free since you can simply do it through the Windows Store. Here's a
    link to the app.

    There is a paid subscription service for Grove Music, however. For $9.99 a month, you can have Groove Music Pass and stream music from a variety of channels and online radios. You can also
    try 4 months for free.

    Give it a shot and let us know if you need help with anything else.

    Mines done the exact same since it updated the other day. It now only finds a few albums in my music directory compared to before.
    Media player still finds them no probs. Only since Groove updated.

  5. I believe that Groove and Windows Indexing does not support NAS. Microsoft support article indicates the network device must be a Windows based OS (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3077721 ).

    Very short sighted by Microsoft.

  6. Yup, it was the same in the windows 8 music app

    If you want this feature added, head to the Feedback app and request it, more people that ask the more chance MS might add it

    Thanks for the replies.

    Bizarre. I watched it adding the music, I was in album view and saw it adding album covers. I opened one and could see the tracks in it!!!

  8. Groove Music not storing anything

    That's really strange, on my two Windows 10 PC's it does add all the music from the NAS (ReadyNas NV+, Linux managed) and I can even play every single track. But never shutdownyour PC ! He will loose the whole library and restart search from new (260 Gb of WMA files... each time it takes hours !). This has to change ! Why ? Are they hoping that all NAS will become Windows managed ? I really liked it once he finished to load all my music... but now... I have only two solutions... Windows Media Player or VLC...
