Re: When performing a full scan, it always shows that all files are updated

Post by Lowlander »

It sounds like scanning is working as expected. When the option for Only for files with changed timestamp or size is disabled all files will be re-read (and thus count as updated), if it is enabled all files will be skipped (unless you update them outside of MediaMonkey).

Do you have many files showing in DB / Tag Mismatches, if so, you'd want to Update tags on the files listed there.

ah, yes, MediaMonkey will update the MMA database by default, not the files.

You need MediaMonkey 5.1+ and on the Sync Profile > Tagging section you need to enable Force files to resync whenever the source files has changed. This will make Sync a lot slower if a lot of changes have been made, but the changes will also be reflected in the Synced files on the device.
