transfer playlist from android phone to windows 10

Post by WalterRamjet »

I had to reload windows and lost everything (I think) on my computer and had to reinstall apps as well.
My cell phone has MM on it and all the old songs and playlist. How do I copy the playlist from my phone back to MM on my windows 10 desktop?

Sync and set it to sync from MMA to MMW in the Device Profile (Tools > Options > Portable Device Sync): https://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index. ... oid_device

Hi Lowlander,
And thanks for the reply. I have been down this road looking for something like what you suggested as in "MMA to MMW" and never seem to find the exact same wording.
I used the menu that looks like see below.

You need to connect your device to the PC via USB to be able to sync from MMW. If you want to do a wifi sync you need to start sync from MMA.

if I sync from the android phone, after about 30 seconds of running, I am returned the message, "Everything is in sync"
However, I dont see any new folders in my Playlists created on my windows 10 machine. So, something is not working right.

You should see the device in File Explorer first and then as a root node in the Media Tree when MediaMonkey recognizes it: http://mediamonkey.com/support/index.ph ... tion-fails

Thanks! I went out to the garage and got newer USB cord and now the android icon and files show in my windows file manager. So, thats as far as I have gone. Still have my auto sync greyed out on my mediamonkey app for windows on my desktop.

Did you read the Support article linked? Make sure your device is connecting in MTP mode as that's the only mode that allows for syncing from MediaMonkey.

None of my choices for USB are MTP mode

I have several choices from which to choose on my samsung s9+
Currently, I have chosen "Transferring files/Android Auto

the other choices are
USB tethering
MIDI
Transferring images
charging phone only
