 I do full re-scan but it doesn't find new albums when added, new media shows as unknown artist.  I paid for full version and have used exclusively for years. this is new.

please advise.

What device, ROM version, Poweramp version? SD Card or internal storage? What file formats?

Does this mainly occur after a reboot (especially if you are using a Samsung Android 11 ROM), and how were the new files transferred to your device (syncing app or manual file copies?).

A couple of initial thoughts: if Android 11, turn off PA Settings > Misc > File Access Legacy Mode. A Full Rescan (found in Settings > Library) should detect the full number of audio files in scannable locations first, and then it crawls through and reads the metadata tags (if available) from each one. If a new song is shown in the Library but just as a filename - i.e. with no Title/Album/Artist information - long-press on that song and select 'Info/Tags' to see what data is actually there.
