MMW not copying tracks from Library

Post by Ryche » Wed Sep 28, 2016 2:14 pm

Hi,

I'm having a small issue with some tracks that are in my music folder not being copied into MMW when I have MMW scan that folder.

The tracks in particular were ripped off a CD using Windows Media Player, and ripped in MP3 Format (the same format as most everything else in my Music Library). I used WMP because, as a standard (non-gold) member, I kept getting the error that the "Free MMW version cannot bundle MP3 encoding beyond 30 days". I tried de-selecting the "On the fly encoding" checkbox, but got the same error. This occurred whether I tried single track or multiple track rips.

Anyway - the tracks that were ripped from the CD using WMP do not get copied. I had a few other non-cd MP3's that were in the folder since my last scan, and those uploaded fine, so I know I'm in the correct folder.

Any thoughts/advice would be appreciated:

Toshiba Satellite on Windows 10, Version 1607, Build 14393.187
MMW Version - 4.1.13.1801

Thanks!

It isn't an error: http://www.mediamonkey.com/support/inde ... -unlimited

Check Tools > Options > Library and make sure the settings there don't exclude the scanned files based on size or length.

Thanks for the reply and the explanation

Just to make sure I'm understanding the process of what I read...

If I download and install the LAME MP3 encoder, I should be able to use that to rip the Tracks from the CD's I want, and once the tracks are in my Library Folder. MMW should pick them up?

Thanks.

It shouldn't matter if MM or WMP rips the files, they should be picked up by MM. The Notes explain some other reasons this may not be happening: http://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index.p ... elp:#Notes

Ok - thanks for the info. I'll look through the notes and see if I can figure out what is going on.

Thanks again!
