I've checked the posts and there are no hidden links.

Ive seen that alot! Could it be spammers who test something?

This occurs frequently on the forum. Some "guest" things it's necessary to quote a post without posting any thing him/herself. Rather useless I think.

Why have you quoted my code - did you not have anything to say?

New version (1.1) is more stable when importing numeric strings (file size, bitrate and song length).

Code: Select all

See first post

I did ask them to read that whole thread, but yes, that script is certainly an important part of it! :)

Let's not forget the script to relink imported database entries to their cd when it is entered. 8) ... 1039#31039

Import MPC as TXT 1.1 [MM2+3]

by trixmoto » Wed Dec 21, 2005 8:18 am

This script imports an "MP3 Collectorz" database that has been exported as a TXT. It is a custom script so will probably need modifying for your own export.

A log file (.log) is created with your .txt database file, this lists any lines which could not be imported.

Please read this before using:

An installer can be download from my website (as always) :)

Code: Select all
