How to update genres when syncing?

Post by TerryInLeesburg » Wed Aug 29, 2018 2:04 pm

I am new to MM. I have gold on the PC and Pro on my Lg V20 Android.

I have gone through all of my music on the PC, and have updated the Genres, titles, artists, etc.
When I try to sync (via USB) to my phone, the Genres do not come across properly. All the tracks still come across with the "old" genres on them.

Example: I change song X from "adult Contemporary" to "Country" on the PC.
It shows up fine on the PC
When I sync with the phone, it does not update the genre.

I went into tools/options/Portable device Sync, selected the V20:
- Granted remote sync
- went into AutoSync -->Device and selected location, artist & album Artist and Genre (all of them) to keep synced.
- Selected Music and playlists in the "Collections" section.

I even deleted everything off the phone (all music) and re-copied it over, without success.

I am sure that I am missing something obvious, but I can't figure it out...
Please help!

And the problem is that MMA doesn't see the changes you made in MMW or that another App on your phone doesn't see it?

It should. Have you tried to have MMA rescan (from Options) after sync? If it still doesn't see the changes after a rescan I suggest you capture the sync after you edited some files in MMW in a debug log (step 4b) and attach the log to a Support Ticket: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=69
