    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?

    Hmm, is this happening with Beat Drop 2 or the original one?

    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”

    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.

    You have to delete the content under “AppData\Roaming\beatdrop” and Beatdrop will be reset 🙂

    Edit:
    beatdrop is reset, but then stuck again at scanning songs.

    Can confirm. Thank you very much for the help.
    -Edit- Should have read your edit before replying: clearing AppData worked for me.

    What fixed it for me was setting it to “Oculus” install. Even though I had installed it through steam.

    I have the same problem, i have reinstalled it several time by deleting all data in Roaming as well as using the uninstall button

    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\”

    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.

    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.

    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.
