Re: Transferring star ratings to files on new drive

The original HDD was a Seagate external connected to my laptop via USB 3.0. The new enclosure kit also uses a USB 3.0 interface. I went ahead and connected it to the laptop and MediaMonkey immediately showed all my music including the star ratings. Whew! What a relief! :D Again, thanks for the sugge...

Re: Transferring star ratings to files on new drive

After all the great advice I have received, I am pleased to report that the original drive (Drive A) is still functional. I purchased a HDD enclosure and transferred the drive to the new enclosure. Finding that it works within the new enclosure, I now have backed up all the files in their original d...

Re: Transferring star ratings to files on new drive

Thanks, Lowlander. That's a lot of verifying. :/ Thanks for the tip, Peke. I would not have thought of the question of sync drive vs regular library drive. New drive should arrive in 7-10 days. This time I'm using a SSD. Crossing my fingers most if not all files will adopt the ratings in the databas...

Re: Transferring star ratings to files on new drive

Ratings are always saved in the database and by default saved in the files too. If you use a different drive with the same database you'll need to update the driveID: https://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=63823&hilit=update+location+of+files+in+database More detail: https://www.medi...

[SOLVED] Transferring star ratings to files on new drive

The external drive housing my mp3 files has gone bad / dead. Let's call that Drive X. I will be buying a new one (let's call it Drive Z) and transferring files from a backup drive (Drive Y) to the new Drive Z. However, the mp3s on the backup drive (Y) do not have the star ratings I had designated fo...

Re: Music Deleted from Library During Sync

Lowlander, I appreciate your quick reply and follow-up question. It turns out that I was able to see the files after changing some configuration settings on my PC that had to do with managing page files in Windows. I'm guessing that the size of the sync and music files involved was too much for the ...

Re: Duplicate tracks at different volumes

Level Playback Volume is enabled. The new duplicate listings (they are not duplicate files - just duplicate listings) are definitely louder. Many of them play back at volumes that exhibit distortion. They play back louder than when I play the original listings. Prior to uploading the MP3s to my musi...

Duplicate tracks at different volumes

I made the mistake of doing a re-scan of all my mp3 files thinking that would make new tracks I added to my HDD appear faster. It did but also created duplicate listings of some 2,300 tracks. I used the Files to Edit | Duplicate Titles facility to get a list of all duplicates. Then I checked a numbe...
