Align Beats not working

Cubase 13 Pro 13.0.20
Windows 11

Align Beats to Project not working. Loops just will not sync to project tempo yet the very same loops sync without issue in Studio One’s browser.

Also, Cubase keeps forgetting that sample folders have been scanned so I have to keep rescanning in Media Bay.

Any help greatly appreciated as it’s virtually impossible to do any work!
