Some more information would be good too :wink:

Are all the tracks the same music format?
Have any of them been purchased from an on-line music store that adds some sort of DRM protection?
Have you tried setting error logging to level 5, running a "Full Scan" and then checking the error log?
Are all the files stored in directories under one parent directory (the one entered in Firefly's config as the music library location)?

Sorry about lack of information,
Think all are same format, some are my cds, some downloaded, about 5 from itunes. There are 209 songs in soundbridge some downloads, some are my cds none are itunes.
Scan is set at painfully aggresive, can't find level 5
All music is in external hard drive under itunes library.

Set error logging to level 5 not scan severity.
You'll find it on the advanced config page.

Music not showing up is usually a file access permission problem. Firefly has a different set of access permissions to you so the files need to be readable by everyone.

DRM protected music will not work with Firefly.

Painfully agressive scanning is only needed if you have VBR music files, if you don't use VBR music you can drop the scanning severity to 1 or even 0
