Re: Album Art Architecture

Pavie: I sort of understand what the path means, but are you saying that my settings are incorrect for this path and that's why I'm having the problem? If so, why is it that 80% of the library is correct and the other 20% not correct? I have never changed anything about the default settings in MM ot...

Re: Album Art Architecture

Further information... Yesterday, I spent nearly four (more) hours trying to get to the bottom of how MMA screws up all my artwork. Thanks to some help from Lowlander and others, I have been able to get MMW in line. The artwork links - even though they are still disjointed from one another - are now...

Re: Album Art Architecture

Hi:

Sorry I didn't see the reply was on another page. I think what I've copied below is the answer to your question. I've never been able to understand what this string means, so I'll leave that up to you.

\Music\<Album Artist>\<Album>\<Track#:2> $Left(<Artist>,20) - <Title>

Thanks!

Re: Album Art Architecture

P.S. I inserted Dropbox URLs for the images, but they're not showing up. I clicked the "Notify me" box for responses and the board doesn't notify me when they occur. I pay money for a license to a product that doesn't work.

Re: Album Art Architecture

Regardless of the "fixes," I've attached two simple photos. These photos were captured after performing a Restore. Plain and simple, no frills: you can see that MMW shows one thing, and that MMA shows another. It's not about what to do to "fix" this particular case. It's about how can this possibly ...

Re: Album Art Architecture

Yes, I've completely deleted offending files from my phone and attempted to resync. Very rarely, does this work, and interestingly, there are times when I don't get the same error - an error, yes, but not the same one. My current example of the Hank Snow tracks is a perfect example. Before I started...

Re: Album Art Architecture

There is only one track per album, since the last time we corresponded you advised me to get rid of the common album names since that might be "confusing" MM. You were correct: ever since I made unique "album" names for singles, MMW is now fixed (with the exception of the problem between the Artwork...

Re: Album Art Architecture

Yes, all three files have the artwork for the "I'm Movin' On" album.

Re: Album Art Architecture

Yeah, I found the files (they were set to "hidden"), but after the six hour restore, nothing worked with it. The album art is still mismatched. The question on the table is this: how can the artwork be correct in MMW and incorrect on my phone? In other words, why does the phone app not mirror *exact...

Re: Album Art Architecture

P.S. I have no cache files anywhere on my machine, and there is nothing in the default directory on the General Tab except two folders: "Previews" and "Virtual CD". I performed a search on my entire hard drive for any file names *mmcache* and there was nothing. Is this something wrong with my softwa...

Re: Album Art Architecture

Thanks, Lowlander. Here are my responses to each of your statements: 1) All of my artwork is embedded. I learned that lesson early on, so I meticulously went back through my database and embedded all artwork that previously was only "attached". 2) Although I would love to explore all the options for...

Album Art Architecture

With the exception of erratic wi-fi sync, which I will imagine will never be solved in my lifetime due to the lack of standardization, I've got MM up and running and, as I've mentioned before, as a database application, it is very impressive. Other than a couple of wishes I'd have for batching work,...

Re: iTunes to MM Transition Package

Lowlander: If Album Artist is blank, does MM "see" the blank as a value, or does it require both Artist and Album Artist to have data in them? If it's the latter, then we have a problem. Example: Artist = Hank Snow, Album = (single), Album Artist = <blank>. If "(single") and "<blank>" are seen as an...
