tag edits in MMA are not synced back to MMW

Post by lueromat »

I sometimes edit files in MMA on my phone when I see that the tag info is incorrect. However, when I then try to sync them back to Windows over wifi, not only to the files not get synced, but the changes are also reverted on the phone - where would be the problem here? Thanks

Which tags were edited when they don't get synced back?

In the Device Profile in MMW there is a setting to auto-sync file metadata from device to PC. Which is not enabled by default.

so it seems as if MMA is not saving my edits to the file. when I edit the tags, and then copy the mp3s from the sdcard to my computer and look at their tags, they are unchanged. however, in the library in MMA they are changed

My experiences:

Tag synchronization MMA -> MMW:
YES: Title, Album, Rating
NO: Artist (s), Genre, Composer (s)
Sometimes YES, Sometimes NO: Played/PlayCounts, Release date
MMW 4.1.30.1914 Gold-Standardinstallation | Meine Einstellungen
Clear Field | CustomFieldsTagger | Discogs Tagger | External Tools
FindCurrentPlayingTrack | PlaylistManager | Randomise Playlist
MMA 1.4.2.0938 Free Beta-Tester | Huawei Mate 20 Pro 128GB
Win 10 Vers.2004 PRO | Defender mit Echtzeitschutz

Hi,
Better metadata bi-di sync is addressed in MMA 2.0 and should be improved further once MM5 gets out and we start MMA 2.0 testing.

MMA doesn't save tag edits to the files, but a sync between MMA and MMW will sync the changes back to MMW and have MMW save the tag edits to the files.

Dear Lowlander,
I have the greatest respect for you and your knowledge,
but you don't really mean that. Aren't you tracking users' BUG reports?
Did you read my analysis above?
In addition, the synchronization of the playlists MMW=>MMA does not work without problems.
viewtopic.php?f=21&p=469769#p469769
Please don't talk the problems out of the world.
Thank you.

Sehr geehrter Lowlander,
ich habe größten Respekt vor Ihrer Person und Ihren Kenntnissen,
aber das meinen Sie doch nicht wirklich. Verfolgen Sie nicht die BUG-Berichte der User?
Haben Sie meine obige Analyse gelesen?
Hinzu kommt noch, auch die Synchronisation der Playlisten MMW=>MMA funktioniert nicht ohne Probleme.
viewtopic.php?f=21&p=469769#p469769
Bitte reden Sie die Probleme nicht aus der Welt.
Danke.

Releases will happen when they're ready, there are no timelines for them.

Hi,
MM5 is getting into last stages of development and then MMA 2.0 should be actively developed because 70% of MMA 2.0 will work with MM5+ and MM4 will only support basic functions on MMA 1.x level.
