no sync of song rating MMW <-> MMA

Post by frs1966 »

Hi,

the sync MMW <-> MMA works. But no song rating!?

Basics: MMW 4.1.5.1719 / Windows 7 / MMA 1.0.7.0311 / Sony Z3c / android 4.4.4

Which way does it fail MMW > MMA or MMA > MMW. The latter will require the option to sync back metadata to be enabled in the Device Profile.

MMW>MMA: approx. 70% is correct, but 30% has no ratings after sync
MMA>MMW: nothing will be sync. No ratings, no tag changing
I have to enable it in the device Profile? In MM is no option in the settings.

Ihave a Sony Z3c with android 4.4.4 and I sync via USB.

In MMW in the Device Profile for the device is the option for sync settings from MMA to MMW.

If you're doing a wifi sync send a debug log from MMA (from About screen) right after sync. If you're doing a USB sync send a debug log (step 4b) from MMW: http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... ?f=26&t=69

I found that WiFi sync would sync ratings from MMA -> MMW, but not USB sync.

MM tech guy seemed to imply that music stored on internal memory would sync OK.

They're (hopefully) working on a fix.

ok, thank you for the information.
But also MMW->MMA approx 1/3 of the ratings are not transferred to the smartphone. (by USB)

I have also found that the metadata would sync on wifi from MMA > MMW but not the other way around, unless synched over USB. And even then not all the ratings make it to MMA, most do though. Is there a fix being worked on for the meta synch over wifi or am I missing a setting somewhere. Thanks.

Same problem...

I use my phone to rate songs in MMA and have always had them update automatically whilst syncing until recently. "Auto-sync metadata from the device to the PC" has always been checked so I'm not sure what changed and cannot for the life of me figure out why this changed... I tried both wifi and usb syncing and no change/difference. I got so fed up I cut and pasted all the music from my phone to a folder on my pc in order to try and salvage the ratings later and just started over with a fresh sync. If I'm able to sync ratings after this new sync I will update.

Related issue:
I synced several times recently trying to troubleshoot this issue and wound up with a TON of duplicate files on both PC and Phone. Any ideas why this would happen? I was playing around with the settings trying to fix the ratings issue so I could've caused this by accident but I have no idea how...

IDK how but it worked! :D

What I did:
1- Plug in phone via usb
2- Cut and paste all music from phone to a folder on my desktop (i don't think this has anything to do with the problem or solution but nonetheless...)
3- Open MMA and MMW and sync desired folders to phone with "auto-sync metadata..." checked

That's it

All ratings were synced back as if I hadn't deleted all music from my phone in step 2. I have no idea why this happened. My main goal was to get rid of all the duplicate files (see previous post) and I was hoping for a xmas miracle and got one! Hopefully I don't have to do this each time I sync, lol

Hi,

suddenly, it works. I do not know why, because I did not change anything.
But only via WLAN, not via USB
