Re: Why does MM 3 keep accessing my backup drive?

Do any playlists located on D reference the E drive? Is there any other way you use the E drive in MediaMonkey itself? The E drive is strictly a USB backup drive where scheduled weekly image copies of my C and D drives are stored. It's never been used for anything other than a backup drive and I ne...

Re: Why does MM 3 keep accessing my backup drive?

I don't know why but you can tell MM to ignore that drive altogether by editing your MediaMonkey.ini file. Update the MediaMonkey.ini file to ignore the drive letter used by the Device by changing IgnoreDriveLetters=AB in MediaMonkey.ini so that it also contains the drive letter held by your extern...

Why does MM 3 keep accessing my backup drive?

Hi all, I keep hearing my external drive that's used solely for backup accessing the disk every 30 seconds, so I turned on my Sysinternals FileMon utility and it turns out Media Monkey is the culprit. I double checked the MM file monitor option and it says to only check my D: drive for new additions...

Thanks. Switching to the "waveOut output v2.0.2a" Output plugin did the trick.

Song restarts from beginning when tag is updated

I'm finding whenever I change a tag a song in MM 3 (3.0.6.1190) the player restarts the song from the beginning. It happens whether I change the tag through the properties popup, or change it directly from the library view, or change it using the categorize icons in the toolbar. Is there any way to ...

Re: Album Art Tagger 4.2 [MM2+3]

The script died at between 400 and 500 records most times, although one time it died after 16 records, and one time I got over 600 records. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to it. A couple times when it died after 100 records or so, I reran the exact same selection of 500 records over a...

Re: Album Art Tagger 4.2 [MM2+3]

I'm having the same problem. Just upgraded to 3 (3.0.6.1190) yesterday and it added the album art from one CD to every single track in my library regardless of whether it already had album art or not. I have my entire library in one large folder. Is there some other solution than going through the p...

did you change the virtual cd location? if so, the virtual cd folder needs to be separate from your main library folders, as mm manages the virtual cd files differently/separately than regular library files. No, but apparently my cat must have. ;-) That did the trick!!! Thanks much for the speedy r...

Can't add songs anymore

Hi All, I've been using MM Gold for years now with no problems, and all of a sudden today neither the "file monitor" or the "add/rescan tracks to the library" will work. It just flashes for a half second, then does nothing. - The database appears to be fine, as it shows all my tracks, allows me to u...

Sounds like your database is damaged or missing. C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\My Documents\ My Music\MediaMonkey\MediaMonkey.mdb Hopefully you have a backup. If not, I highly recommend a weekly backup of that database. If it's still there, but damaged, you can try the "Compact Database" under th...

Thanks. Unfortunately the "Language" that's incorrect is in the first 3 bytes of the comment frame as opposed to the language tag. It's a known problem in MM, as XXX is not a valid language code. It should either default to the abbreviation of the language field in the tag (ie "eng"), or to spaces. ...

This is good stuff! I'm just getting into scripting and it sure beats the way I was doing it before with MS Access update queries. Oh well, live and learn. I use this script to copy tag info into the comments field to be used in iTunes, but there's an issue with the Language field. MM sets the Langu...

"I'm getting used to MM, so having some sort of PC (hidden laptop) in my family room might work. I guess I would have to add some sort of card to decent audio output (or do PCs now come with that?)." It depends on how critical the listening environment is, but you'll probably want to purchase an ex...

I think the upcoming MM3.0 will have this feature! That would be GREAT! That's the only thing holding me back from dumping iTunes in favor of MM to manage my iPod. I use MM for everything, except iPod management. Keeping the two in sync and transferring the tag info from MM to iTunes is a real pain...
