I have the app delicious library. And I can't seem to get my imac's isight camera to scan the barcodes of the cds I have. It won't read them. They are mostly Australian cds though. Does anyone know why this is? And does anyone use this feature of delicious library? Does it work for you? And from what country are the cds you are scanning in?

Use mine mainly for DVD's and in the US.
Used it in the beginning, but just didn't work that great for me. Think my problem was never had enough light in the area.

Gave it up and started using the manual add button. Then discovered drag n drop from Amazon. Search Amazon, select your title, then just drag n drop the cover from the browser into Delicious Library. Works like a champ.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

Does it scan and not find anything, or does it just not scan the code?
(You can tell by the beep).

If it's the latter:
The problem is mainly that the built-in iSight cameras don't have an auto-focus lens, so you'll need to keep adjusting the distance of the barcode to the camera to get it right.

It takes a bit of practise, but after a while it becomes quite easy to get it right first try.
Let's see if they've been able to improve that in version 2 (due for release soon).

I have a few US and UK cd singles and after a while it scanned those ok. I found it takes a while to get the distance right for the beep to say the barcode is scanned.

But for Aussie cds, some work ok amazingly. But some, no luck, so I just manually put in the barcode and it works ok. But the site does day it has support for barcodes from certian countries. And Australia is not one of them. That could be the issue. But since some of them work how is good for me. It's much better then the list I was making in text edit.

Thanks both for the replies. Haven't tried the drag and drop thing you have spoken about, but I will when I can. Sounds interesting.

So it seems my issue now is app related. Which hopefully the next update will fix. Thanks for the help.
