Plex Media Server doesn't load SOME of my movies

HiggieHiggie Posts: 4Members

I've just upgraded to the latest version, and now the media server finds the files, makes an "entry" but it's just continually loading. What makes it weirder is it happens only in the letter "J" in my collection. Everything between Tomorrow Never Dies (I have all my Bond films in order using the Sort Name) to the Jungle Book is just gone!

As you can see from the picture, it just stops, and every movie appears to be "Loading". If I scroll all the way to the bottom, then start scrolling back up again, my movies start reappearing again, and they will keep reappearing until I hit "The Jungle Book" at which point all movies above that point are then "Loading" until I scroll back to the top. I know there are movies missing though as I have every James Bond movie! Skyfall, Casino Royale etc just will not load!
