Genre change not synced from device to PC

by BigPedro » Tue Jan 07, 2020 3:12 pm

Hi, if I change the genre of a track on my device I've found that the new genre is not synced back to the PC, which is highly inconvenient.

Is this a bug or by design, and if by design, use it possible to include genre sync in a future release please?

Pete

sorry to insist but still in desperate need for this, as i tag specific genres on my tracks that i use for DJing afterwards.

Right now i have to :
- MMA : edit the title by adding with "/// deep_house_chill"
- sync
- MMW : cut off "/// deep_house_chill" and paste it in the "genre" field

manually

You guess how much time is lost with that

Hi,
That highly depend on MM5 as MM 2.0 take advantage on MM5 architecture not available in older MMW versions.

MMA 2 is a big new release, that's why it's taking longer. There is no release date set for MMA 2.

I'm having the same issue.

MMW version 4.1.24.1883
MMA Version 1.3.4.0851 (signed up to beta updates)

When syncing from MMA -> MMW, only the title, Album and release date changed on MMW, whilst the other changes made on MMA reverted back to the unchanged properties on MMW.

Changed properties on MMW and uploaded them to MMA .
Made changes to every property on MMA.
Synced with MMW.



I decided to look elsewhere so clicked on File->Locate moved/missing files, and I found the file i was trying to change was in the "unmoved file" tab, with only a "update" button, which when i clicked on did nothing and closed this screen.

Hi,
You are using outdated MMW version you should update to 4.1.24.1882

Hi.

Is it the near future yet? :)
I'm running the latest Beta Android app, MMW 4.1.21.1875 and this is a rather frustrating problem. In every other way MM is the best, but it would be really nice to be able to update file on the Android Monkey and have them sync back to the PC.

Thanks!

So it seems that you're correct--fields that support multiple values are not synced back from MMA to MMW. This is fixed in #13548 in MMA 2.0 (beta testing to start in the near future).

I'm still having the same problem, but it's a year later, and I have the latest versions.

On PC (4.1.21.1875)
On Android (1.3.2.0824)

I just spent 3 weeks on the road and updated a bunch of tracks. I returned home and lost all of my updates, except for ratings. Bummer.

Please let me know how I can fix this. Thanks!!

I have the same problem. I have a Samsung S3 neo GT-I9301I with Cyanogenmod 12.1 Unofficial (Android Vers. 5.1.1), MMW 4.1.18.1842, MMA 1.3.1.0723. Dates (and time zone) are OK on both Computer (Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise v. 10.0.15063.540) and Android. I use the WIFI Sync.
Both "Auto-sync file metadata from the device to the PC" and "Enforce use of sync mask for files already on the device" are selected.

These are the steps I follow:

1 I Add a new mp3 file (PC.mp3) into MMW library, I rate it 3 stars and I write "PC" in the tag fields:
Title
Artist
Album
Album Artist
Composer
Conductor
Genre
Lyricist

and I Write "2000" in the tag fields:
Disk #
Track #
Date
Original Date

2 I Add this song to my Sync playlist called S3

3 I launch WIFI Sync (in MMA)

4 After sync, in MMA I play that file. Stop Playing. Properties.
Everything is ok, same fields as on MMW.

5 Now... In MMA I change every field, (except Type Music) with the word "Android", and I change all the numeric fields with "2017".

6 I Press "OK".

7 I Launch Sync Again (in MMA).

8 These are the final results on my MMW (same on MMA, if any):

Rate: 5 stars
Title Android
Artist PC
Album Android
Album Artist PC
Composer PC
Conductor PC
Genre PC
Lyricist PC
Disk # 2000
Track # 2000
Date 2017
Original Date 2000
Play counter 2017
Skip counter 2017

That's All.
Everything is in sync, but not as it was supposed to be.

So, after the sync, the fields:
"
Artist
Album Artist
Genre
Composer
"
are wrong, not synchronized properly

I hope I have been helpful. Bye bye.
Hi, I have the same problem.
I also try with the lastest beta version for Windows (4.1.19.1859) and Android (1.3.1.0736), but the problem still remain.
Is this bug fixed?
Thank you.
