I've tried searching the forums since i know this question doesn't belong here, but im in desperate need of help.
Im trying to add my CSI episodes to the library. When i search, xbmc cant find my episodes in my folder. It's really annoying since i have over 10 tv-series and all of the other episodes show.
So my CSI folder shows, but there are no episodes in the folder.
I've tried searching with all of the sites, imdb, tvdb, tvrage etc.
Is this a bug or am i doing wrong?

Edit:
Sorry for my terrible english.
Ofcourse, i have the episodes on the harddrive, and i can watch them if i go into file mode. But they refuse to be found and added to the library.

What's the naming convention?
Both on CSI and others.

If you really want some help on it you should post the real folder and file names. Otherwise no one can/want help you.

Please pastebin a FULL debug log from a scan, preferrably after you have nuked your video database file (or rename it if you want to keep it as a backup).

Go to the site http://thetvdb.com/ or the the site where you are choosing to scrape from, search for CSI and see how the series is named there. Then chenge the name of your source to match it.
In this case in particular the series will be recognized correctly if you name it "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation"
