You need to select what should be synced as by default nothing is selected which is why everything is in sync.

Use the Device Profile (Tools > Options > Portable Device Sync) to select content that should be synced from PC to device: https://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index. ... oid_device

Auto-Sync in MMW only works when the device is connected via USB.

ok I found Select sync server and it now knows where the information is coming from. On the device (phone) I found Options>Sync Setting>SDcard. I had it running and syncing for 16 hours and the device battery died so have to start again!! Is there a way to sync from where it left off? Also i noticed the ones that successfully synced to device had each song copied 5 times, 4 were greyed out, the 5th one is working. It will take 2/3 days to fully sync if each track is copying 5 x . Any suggestions?

Thanks for your help Lowlander.

Which version of MMW, MMA and Android are you using?

Sync should only copy changes, so it should not re-sync files it already synced.

Check Choose Library Folders, make sure the right folders are selected there and remove any that shouldn't be included.

Decided to restart eveything on my device. Deleted MMA , deleted all files and setting. Also reformatted SDcard . There were some songs had 5/6 greyed tracks so I thought start again.

I'll let it run overnight and maybe over two nights and see if this works, will let you know

Thanks
