1256 Failure of auto-sync to copy updated file [#5962]

Post by chrisjj »

On a d_USBMass1.dll device mapping to a HD folder via a SUBST drive:

1 In an external program, update an auto-sync listed WMA track by editing it
2 In MM, Add/Rescan it
3 Auto-sync

Expected: updated track copied to device
Observed: updated track not copied to device - old version left on device.

Note: The Last Modified of the updated track is changed even though the content is not, and mysteriously also the Last Modified of all unupdated tracks is changed:
Image

This in Win XP SP2 + WMF 11

Workaround: first delete the track from the device.

I have reproduced this each of three times here, but I'd be grateful for confirmation.

Can anyone reproduce this, ideally on a regular rather than SUBST drive? Thanks.

Hi,
This is fixed in MM5, where you can set Local Folder as sync device.

Thanks for the workaround. Note: not a fix.

Hi,
For MM5 it is a fix, MM4 Core do not support such feature, only way is to use subst, but even then you must be careful to use Drive letter sync as Serials fore subs drive is same as with original HDD.

You can try my http://mmfanbox.x10host.com/mmfanbox/virtualcd.html plugin, but be warned it was made for MM3.x.

I that that to mean just installing MM5 over MM4 causes this procedure result to switch to working as expected. Thanks.

I don't know which feature this refers to. Clearly MM4 does support the features of this procedureL "d_USBMass1.dll device mapping to a HD folder via a SUBST drive", "Add/Rescan" and "Auto-sync".

You can't install MM5 on top of MM4 in same folder, but MM5 install allow you to import MM4 settings, so that you can preserve library and most common settings.

You know that USB Mass plugin is removed from MM4 installation because it created more issues than it solved eg. many MTP devices due the Windows Architecture change stopped working/being detected, and whole detecting/handling engine needed to be rewritten in MM5.

Ok then. I take it to mean just installing MM5 and importing MM4 settings causes this procedure result to switch to working as expected. Thanks.

I didn't. Thanks for the heads-up.

I can't find that removal in any changelog (a surprised since it is a compatibility loss) but i do find mention in a note here http://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view. ... 383#c41133 . And discussion here https://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=78611 .

Yeah it should, MM 5.0.4 version improved a lot on migrating from MM4 and make it much clear and simpler.

See https://www.mediamonkey.com/addons/brow ... e-plug-in/ shortly said The way how Windows changed detection of MTP devices in Win 10 (I think around build 1904, but not sure) made USB Mass plugin block detecting of most/some MTP devices (especially when Android removed support for USB MSC device obsolete) and your ZEN (I guess you still use it) uses MSC Protocol.

Good to hear.

I still use MM with my dozen or so ZENs but by MTP.

But the procedure above (and my reliance on d_USBMass1.dll) isn't from my use with ZENs, but a different use.

Hmmm, MM5 handles thing bit different and USB Drives are handled bit differently, it is possible taht you need to enable Profile in Devices and Services in case of External HDD in order to be considered as Sync device. Unfortunate additional step to prevent duplicates and non needed syncs.
