On a fresh install (or reinstall, as the case may be), as soon as it launches, BeatDrop displays the “Scannning for songs…” message box and sits on it. What do? Did I miss something in the folder structure or something?April 9, 2019 at 11:34 pm #1127262CuratorRecommendedParticipant
Hmm, is this happening with Beat Drop 2 or the original one?April 10, 2019 at 6:43 pm #1127394

Same, I can’t get it do do anything. Tried deleting the program and removing any traces, but as soon as it loads up it’s stuck on “searching for songs”April 13, 2019 at 11:00 am #1127900realchickenblueParticipant
Have the same problem. Where is the config file where e.g. the game path is entered?
Believe if you reset the settings it could work again.April 13, 2019 at 11:10 am #1127904realchickenblueParticipant
You have to delete the content under “AppData\Roaming\beatdrop” and Beatdrop will be reset 🙂
beatdrop is reset, but then stuck again at scanning songs.

Can confirm. Thank you very much for the help.

What fixed it for me was setting it to “Oculus” install. Even though I had installed it through steam.April 16, 2019 at 2:03 pm #1128603HaloMeetParticipant
I have the same problem, i have reinstalled it several time by deleting all data in Roaming as well as using the uninstall buttonApril 18, 2019 at 9:41 pm #1128955TheProParticipant
Same problem here. Does this app work for anyone?
Even with an empty CustomSongs folder it just hangs there. Is there anything else you have to install before installing this?
I have the Oculus version. Its installed on drive G.
This is what I choose for Beat Saber Install Directory
“G:\Oculus Apps\Software\hyperbolic-magnetism-beat-saber\”April 19, 2019 at 5:37 pm #1129095freshnebula098Participant
i seem to have found a fix for me
i first did the same as realchickenblue did but then deleted the file that beat drop 2 was saved to when i first installed . after that i just reinstalled beat drop and it worked. hope this helps

when i said delete the file where beat drop is saved in i meant go into it and run the uninstall programMay 10, 2019 at 4:17 pm #1132708daveplayboyParticipant
Has anyone found any other fixes for this? I’ve done what everyone else has said (deleted AppData, uninstalled, reinstalled). I also tried reinstalling BeatSaber itself. I still can’t get past “scanning for songs” when the app launches.May 13, 2019 at 6:03 pm #1133305MitchelParticipant
I had the same problem, but it is fixed now. I uninstalled beatsaber, removed all remaining files in the folder (these were created by modsaber). then I reinstalled Beatdrop and beat saber. Deleted the files in appdata roaming and it worked.May 23, 2019 at 4:29 am #1134805InvertexParticipant
The issue is that some old custom songs have improper info.json files that are missing their hash value, and BeatDrop’s scanner stalls on these files. What I did was move all my songs out, and then add them back to the folder in halves, doing a BeatDrop scan each time until a stall happened, move those files I just moved in back out and doing halves again from those, narrowing it down until I found the culprit songs.
The BeatDrop devs definitely need to add a check for missing hash.
