import fails

Don't understand this one. I've completely removed Sapphire - including the metadata, etc. files and tried again, but have the same problem. This is on latest Leopard, beta 6.4. I have successfully used Sapphire before on this machine, but was having trouble with a disk, so moved all over to a new disk, and rearranged things.

I have a USB disk named freeAgent. My files are all on the top level. Most are VIDEO_TS, so there's a directory on that top level for each DVD. The few that are single avi or mp4 filed I've enclosed in a directory. So in Settings, I specified that folders should be used (it would be a nice enhancement to allow this to be specified on a per collection basis, btw). Since some of my files are avi's and mp4's, I've enclosed each of them in their own folder on the top level. So, for example, predator.avi is enclosed in a folder called predator. Can't (re)find where I saw this recommendation, but that's what I did.

Fine. I import TV Shows, and all are imported OK. Then I import movies. The avi/mp4's are imported first (why?) and the import is successful. Then it seemingly starts on the others (the VIDEO_TS ones), but when it prompts for what movie each is, it provides freeAgent as the name (the name of the disk), and does it over and over.

Any log info or whatever that I can supply? This is really weird.

Since DVD rips are always VIDEO_TS directories, there no value whatsoever in the directory name. Instead, Sapphire always uses the containing directory as the name of the "file". You likely do not want to use the setting that folder names should be used for search names. Such cases are extremely rare.
