    Foobar2000 Mobile not showing all music files

    Using Foobar2000 on an iPad or Samsung androiad phone.
    Music is FLAC lossless ripped via DBPoweramp and stored on a NAS.
    Can use other apps scan music files and all play with no problems using same NAS and FLAC files. ie mconnect or 8Player or Neutron etc.
    When using Foobar2k I select the NAS as my media server and select the folder where the FLAC music files and use the by folder option.
    Consistently the only files loaded are from artists A thru E does not go any further.
    Any ideas as to what may be the problem here or am I doing something wrong.
    Up to date version of iOS and Foobar2k as well as my Samsung phone.
    Have the same issue when trying this at a friends using their iPad and their NAS.
    I would like to use Foobar but it has been frustrating me.
    Number of tracks in music collection approx 41000.

    What NAS type is it?
    Any specific media server software running on your NAS?

    I presume you're using the NAS as UPnP server - auto discovered by foobar2000 mobile in Media Servers list without having to manually add anything.
    If your NAS supports FTP shares, you can manually enter the ftp://username:password@hostname/ address in Settings / Media Servers, which will provide an alternate way to browse your NAS content, hopefully without bugs.

    Anyone with any ideas or experiencing the same issue?
    Consistently only loads folders ( music is in folders by artist ) from A Perfect Circle thru to Eurogliders.
    Always stops at Eurogliders. Next listed folder is Eurythmics in my FLAC file but Foobar2000 does not load this.
    NAS is Seagate Personal Cloud. 1.8 TB of FLAC.
    Foobar2000 can see the NAS and I can drill down to the music folder. Just does not load all.
    A lot of albums. Can play any of album from folders A thru to Eurogliders
    Unfortunately it leaves out all folders after this all the way to the last which is ZZ Top.
    Have tried changing / experimenting with various settings in Foobar2000 mobile to no avail.
    I also have the same music in ALAC format ( about 1.2TB ) on another NAS that has the same issue.

    All music ripped via DBPoweramp using the following settings:
    [IFVALUE]album artist,[album artist],[IFCOMP]Various Artists[][IF!COMP][artist][][]\[album]\[track] [artist] - [title]
    with DSP effects: RG Replay Gain, HDCD, Folder.jpg folder preserve.
    Hopefully something simple...

    Foobar2000 Mobile is Version 1.0.67 lite
    iPad Mini iOS is 9.3.5 (13G36 )
    Also decided to try the PC ( Win 10 ) version of Foobar2000 ( version 1.3.15 ) and loaded the same FLAC file. Seems to
    find all the artists/albums from A to Z no problem.

    Thanks for the responses so far.
    Removed the Foobar2000 mobile app from the iPad Mini.
    Same issue.
    Could it be that I am using a Seagate Personal Cloud ( tried it on a Seagate Central as well..same issue )??
    Strange given the other music apps like mconnect or 8player have no such issue.
    Even running Foobar 2000 on a PC using the same NAS has no issue.
    Do not seem to be able to use the ftp method although I may be setting it up wrongly but surely DLNA or UPnP should work..
    Shame since I do like using it when I've played the albums it can see but unfortunately I would like to be able to choose anything within my entire library
    not just a third of them.

    Perhaps there is a limit on how many items they serve per request - since they appear to give you first N items only. Foobar2000 mobile currently tries to get them all in one pass, instead of loading incrementally like some other clients do.

    I'll attempt to fix this for the next foobar2000 update.

    Added attempted fix in version 1.0.76. You've been added to iOS beta testers, you will be able to install 1.0.76 beta through the testflight app when it gets approved. Please report back if it helps once you get it.

    Edit: I presumed that your Apple account name is the same as your email address used for forum registration. If it is different, please drop me a private message the correct address to add.

    No versions beyond 1.0.55 lite are reading any music files on my sd card. Using a Logic Gfive with 4.2.3 unrooted. Any suggestions?

    Current Settings used ( essentially the same as with the iPad except for settings that do not exist with the iOS version.
    I presume you're playing files over UPnP from your media server, correct?
    Does it make any difference if you play files stored locally on your phone?
    Please try downloading an album to your phone, navigating to its location (browsing by album or by folder) and playing from there.
