Thumb drive not visible for syncing.

Post by Davidknc » Tue Jul 04, 2017 7:53 am

I'm a newbie. I'm switching from Media Player to MM.

My thumb drives are not showing up as available to sync.
I find this happens after I've made any change to the thumb drive. The drive shows up in my computer listing but not separately for syncing.

Any explanations or suggestions?

So they did show prior to the chances? Which version of MediaMonkey and Windows?

Hi,
That is the windows related issue where windows determine if USB flash Drive or SDCard inserted into Reader is Media Device or Storage Device which then depends on how MMW detect it :( I have that with My card reader where when I insert new blank SDCard into Card reader it is detected as MediaDevice in both Windows and MMW but as soon as I Finish Sync (No matter if I use MMW or Plain File copy in explorer) SDCard gets Drive letter and is detected as Storage device :(

Do you still have d_USBMass1.dll or MediaMonkey USB Mass Storage Plugin under Tools > Options > Extensions?
