Rhythmbox Only Imports Recently Ripped Folders

I've recently re-installed my operating system after a system problem. I am running F14 and Rhythmbox 0.13.2.

I had all my music files backed up and have copied all the all the backed up files to /home/Music. I also ripped four CDs today and put them in the same folder.

Then I started Rhythmbox and went to import the /Music folder for the first time since the new install.

The only folders imported from the Music folder were the files from the four CDs I ripped today. It would not import any of the other subfolders or files. The new files were ogg format and that is what most of the non-imported files were.

I tried importing the Music folder with Amorok and it worked fine so there files seem to be OK.

Anyone have an idea why it isn't working in Rhythmbox?

Re: Rhythmbox Only Imports Recently Ripped Folders

Check the ownership and protection modes for the files in /home/Music.

If you copied them using the root account, then they would have ended
up owned by root and not by the user.

If the old files were copied by the user it is possible that the access
permissions changed - they should be rw- for owner at a minimum.

I did chmod 777 Music and it behaves the same. I've also looked at the permissions of the old and new and the settings are the same
