Re: [SOLVED] MM replaces .mp3 files with .m3u files on sync??

To clean up the M3U situation based on my experience with a Samsung Tablet running on Android 10: 1). With the device connected using USB, open Windows File Explorer and search for "*.M3U" when viewing your equivalent of SDCard\Music. 2). Delete ALL the 0 byte M3U files. [To assist with this I place...

Re: BPM analyzer

This is what I do - perhaps once every month or two. Go to the Entire Library Node / Add BPM to the columns and then sort by BPM. Select ALL those at the top with no BPM value. Create a play list of "$$$Missing BPM" (right click / send to) and export to M3U file. Open the M3U in Foobar and analyse f...

Re: STUPID ME - cant get out of party mode

Have you tried the start-up options to start party mode?

"C:\MediaMonkey 4 1919\MediaMonkey.exe" /party

Just have a short cut for Party mode.

Re: Resetting the "Last Played" Column

This is available using the Add-On RegExp Find and Replace. So for example, choose Entire Library, Sort by Last Played, make a selection then right click - RegExp Find And Replace / Basic Manipulations / Reset Last Played Field. You will get a pop-up message box to then confirm you want to reset and...

Re: [SOLVED] MM replaces .mp3 files with .m3u files on sync??

The current suspect source is an App on the device doing this. However which App isn't mentioned unfortunately. I tend to agree that it is more likely to be on the device side. Not a technical comment more based on my experience. Have just done a clean install of Windows 10 on a new SSD then re-ins...

Re: [SOLVED] MM replaces .mp3 files with .m3u files on sync??

It seems to come and go. Not certain what is causing the creation of M3Us. It has been less of a problem recently due to the almost weekly release of new versions of MMW5. For each new version I do a clean portable install of both the debug and normal version. I tend to start afresh with a device sy...

[REQ] Tools / Options / Skin [#17544]

From the menu bar, tools / options / skins shows a dialogue box where the left column has all the options. The column is about 20% of the box area. The right hand side is the remaining 80%. In the case of the "skins" there are "radio" style buttons alongside a text list of the various skins - 5 in m...

Devices and Services - Sync Profile / File Locations [#17553]

On the Devices & Services / Sync Profile / File Locations screen with the "Save file to the following locations on [device]" the tab order is a bit curious in MMW5. You can "tab" from Music / Classical...TV, then you loose track of the field / control that has "tab" focus. The "tab" focus does not s...

Re: Is Anyone Running MediaMonkey 4 & 5 Together?

I run with four installations of the most current versions. All portable installations with a "normal" and "debug" for both MMW4 and MMW5. All four installations point to the same music folders. The music folders are backed up using One Drive. MMW4 is most useful for the add-ons / extensions as not ...

6 Import Errors Reported as 12

Good to see 2293 RC2. After the portable installation of 2293 RC2 MMW5 went straight into importing my MP3 files as expected. At the end it reported 12 errors but the log file only had 6 entries: Error scanning file, error while reading file info: D:\OneDrive - THE OCTOBER CLUB\Music\Selena Gomez\Wh...

Re: File Location Not Working as Expected

Definitely something odd going on! Take a look at this video clip and see how the File Locations appears to be "saved" when Apply is clicked, but when you change to Playing and back the Devices & Services / Sync Profile / File Locations ALL the settings are reset. https://octoberclub-my.sharepoint.c...

Re: File Location Not Working as Expected

Hi Lowlander,

Yes both MMW4 and MMW5 worked on synching the same source files.

It worked OK after removing the MediaMonkey folder.

Re: File Location Not Working as Expected

Hi Lowlander,

Yes first time sync to the freshly formatted external hard disk.

First Media Monkey 4 (to x:\Music\...) and then Media Monkey 5 (to x:\MMW5\...)

Then I was going to compare the results of the two "syncs" and see if that showed any issues.

Re: File Location Not Working as Expected

Hi Lowlander,

I set the File Location under Devices & Services then Sync Profile then File Locations.

Could it be the the information on the external hard disk in x:\MediaMonkey\Files\... sort of over-rides the previous?

File Location Not Working as Expected

In Media Monkey for Windows 4, I set the file location as: \Music\<Album Artist>\<Album>\<Disc #><Track#:2>-<Title> for an external hard disk drive and it added MP3 files as expected - for example: X:\Music\10cc\Sheet Music\101-The Wall Street Shuffle.mp3 However, using Media Monkey for Windows 5, I...
