Banshee 0.11.2-1 importing music from folder or files fails to load any songs into library. No errors are logged to console. When importing from a CD, the CD's songs are correctly imported into the library, but still nothing will load from disk by using either 'local folder' or 'local files' import options.
This task depends upon

On a related problem, if you go to preferences > cd importing , you will notice that you can't import to mp3 even when gstreamer0.10-mad/lame are installed.
Also it will fail to import mp3 files to the library.

Is there a problem with the gstreamer plugins?

I am also having trouble importing files using banshee. I found this bug for banshee listed on another distro's site:

I think I found a solution. Kevin, try this:
make sure you have gstreamer0.10-mad and gstreamer0.10-lame

open 'gnome-audio-profiles-properties'
and created a new profile with the following values:

Profile name: mp3
Profile Description: MP3
GStreamer Pipeline: audio/x-raw-int,rate=44100,channels=2 ! lame name=enc bitrate=256 ! id3v2mux
File Extension: mp3

then check 'Active' and click OK
The problem was the missing profile.

Hi Hussam

I tried this and it didn't seem to fix things on my system. I am trying to import a bunch of mp3 files that are stored locally.

My problem was fixed in this post.

please check if it was fixed with mono 1.2.1,
gconftool-2 --set /apps/Banshee/IOBackend --type string unix

this will get you the default backend.
