Re: [FIXED] suddenly MM will not sync with iPhone via Installed (non-app) iTunes [#16934]

I also have this problem. I have MM 1914. But I have a new PC and it seems no longer possible to download the iTunes version that MM requires, all links refer me to the Microsoft Store version. Ans thid MS Store version doesn't work with MM.
Please advise.

Re: Switching From MediaMonkey 4 To 5

I think I know why MM5 puts the MM5 ini file in the MM5 folder and the MM5 database in the MM4 folder. I have multiple instances of MM4, so all .ini files have a line to specify the DB location, also in case this is the default folder. When installing MM5, MM5 makes an MM5 folder and puts the MM5 .i...

Re: Switching From MediaMonkey 4 To 5

It helps if I run MM5 as admin. Then MM5 does find and convert the DB. It is still put in the MM4 directory however.
Then I can manually correct to folder of the DB and update the .ini file.

I think this could be made a bit more user friendly.

Re: Switching From MediaMonkey 4 To 5

On my new PC, I first install MM4 and then MM5. This is what happens when I install MM5 - MM5 makes a new directory AppData\Roaming\MediaMonkey5 and puts a copy of the MM4 database in it - MM5 also puts a new, empty MM5.DB in AppData\Roaming\MediaMonkey (the MM4 directory !!) - MM5 then seems to use...

Re: Switching From MediaMonkey 4 To 5

I would have, if I was asked. But this simply didn't happen. MM5 just starts without asking about the library.

Re: Switching From MediaMonkey 4 To 5

I have a new PC. First I installed MM4. The MM.DB and the .ini file are on a network drive so I referred MM4 to these files. This works fine. Now I also want to install MM5. Unfortunately, MM5 doesn't "see" my MM4 library. I've tried to install it a few times, but MM5 simply starts from fresh. Any i...

Re: Auto Organize Question...

You can add the date of the concert, or the name of the studio album, to the song title. If the song titles are identical (without such addiotions) and you put them in 1 album, neither MM nor you can tell which is which…. Alternatively, you could just leave them on the original albums/concerts and j...

Transfer codec pack

On my old pc, I can view media files in .mkv format with subtitles. If I play these exact same files (from a network drive) with MM on my new pc, MM cannot display the subtitles. I get an error message saying that I should download a suitable codec pack. Obviously, I have downloaded and installed th...

Re: Music interrupted

Ok, thanks. I just tried several of these options but at the moment, all is fine. I do have some doubts if the explanations that are offered here have anything to do with my problem. This is because the problem just happens incidentally, and then after a few hours or a restart, it disappears again. ...

Music interrupted

When I play music with MM, sometimes the music is interrupted all the time. This is very annoying of course. I am not sure about the cause. It is a brand new pc, and it is certainly generally not slow. And there are no other applications running on this pc. The music is on a shared drive. Could that...

Re: MM5 Feature Request - Store play count within mp3 tag instead of MM.DB

I make a daily backup of MM.DB, so I can always go back to the previous version if the DB gets corrupted.
