Auto-Organize by DiskNumber + Track number

Post by WACOMalt »

Hi there. I am tryinbg to reorganise my music library with Media Monkey Gold, which I love so far!

But I wondered when having it auto-organize files based on tags, is there a way to only use a field if data exists for it?
For example if I have it do \Music\<Album Artist>\<Album>\<Disc#:2> - <Track#:2> - <Title>

And an album is only one CD, I'll get something like \Music\A-Ha\Love Is Reason\01 - 01 - Take On Me.mp3

The first number is kinda pointless, and in fact if I had nothing as the disk number tag Id get something like \Music\A-Ha\Love Is Reason\ - 01 - Take On Me.mp3

which is way annoying. I also dont want to have to set every single song that either isnt on an album, or only has 1CD, as disk 1 just to get my files sorted.

Is there any way to make it so if an album only has one disc, that it would skip the "<Disc#:2> - " part of the renaming?

This is the only thing stopping me from full reorganizing my files.


Oh also, when having it syncronize, is there a way to have it simply copy my main drive's folder structure? rather than rebuilding it on the device based on the "destination" tab? Id like to organize my files however, and have that 1 to 1 copy to my phone. (That way I can treat single disc/no disc albums separately in naming, and just having that stay that way when it sends to my phone rather than it applying the same rules to everything)

You should be using the if function eg

Code: Select all

 \Music\<Album Artist>\<Album>\$if(<Disc#>,<Disc#:2> -,) <Track#:2> - <Title>

There isn't, other than selecting files on single disc Albums and removing the Disc# tag in Properties.
