Do you see these files under [untagged] or [folder view]? If so, the files don't contain tags and you will need to add tags using a tagging program.

Yes. There are tons of files and folders under both; [untagged] and [folder view]. What is the easiest way. I would prefer JRiver if I can use it. They do appear under JRiver though. I am not too crazy particular about tagging. Some basic info and cover art is what I need. Thanks.

If you don't want to tag your files, you will need to use [folder view] to view them and play them. This works, but you will miss out on many of the valuable features of MinimServer.

When these files appear under JRiver, how is JRiver detecting album/artist/genre/title information for them?
No, I did not say I don't need them tagged, what I said is I can live with basic tags. I see some people getting very obsessed with many thing. I need to add basic tags so the appear in Gener; that is how my file/folders are sorted and that is how start to brows. So please help me get them tagged.

I do not know how JRiver is doing it, they appear with everything else, I do not see (or know) of any difference.

You should be able to use Mp3tag to add basic tags based on filename information. See this page for more information.

If JRiver already has the information that you want, the problem might be caused by JRiver not writing this information into your audio files. See this page for information on how to do this.

It is well worth the extra effort, in my opinion (although I may not have felt that way at the time)!

Best,

Yes, but very frustrating; Kinsky or Kazoo not showing all my albums, ton are in untagged and folder view, some partial, ..........Kazoo does not show Cover Art until I am at the track level display......on and on and on.......

Thanks

I think it would be best to start with one album that isn't showing (or is showing partially) and work through the steps to get it fixed. If you post screenshots here, it should be possible to work out what is causing the problem. When you have solved the problem for one album, you should be able to do the same for other albums.
I am working through things one by one. I am getting to work with Mp3Tag, but hit a glitch, some folders do not show anything in Mp3Tag, even though there are files in that folder I can see them under the Windows Explorer. So far seems like they are .wav files. I did convert them with JRiver, but still I cannot see them in Mp3Tag. Let me know please. Thanks.

Unfortunately, Mp3tag doesn't support WAV tagging. This tagging is supported by JRiver and dBpoweramp and also by other tagging programs such as Tag&Rename (see this page) and AudioShell (see this page). I haven't tried the later two programs myself.
I have a question;

I am using Kazoo as CP. I do not see cover art until I have browse down to all the way at the album level.

If I use JRiver as the DLNA server under Kazoo I see cover art under all screens.

Also, is there anyway to have the MinimServer rescan the directory say once everyday automatically? Thanks
