Hiiii

Device is scanning 2. MMW creates db_copy_request to fetch Content 3. Scan never ends and mmstore.db.copy is never created. NOTE: In case it gets ... the device prior to running MMA, it seemed to take less time--could it be that the existance of .m3u files somehow slows down the scanning process?

Any help would be appreciated

Hello
Just end up the process and restart it.

I think I may have found at least a temporary solution --

When the "Scanning" appears to be stuck endlessly on a device, go into MMW options, go down to "Devices", uncheck/disable the .DLL for the particular device, OK it and drop out of options (the device should disappear from MM), go back into options, and re-check/enable the .DLL for the device. When the device pops back up in MM, scanning happens again, but it at least finishes scanning after a few minutes, and thereby allows me to sync playlists and files back and forth after that.

Just a heads up.

Any solution on this? It's one of the main reasons I'm using Mediamonkey, as I need, among other things, a music program that can sync nicely with my phone. But this "Scanning..." never goes away, and is extremely frustrating.

Surely there must be a way to narrow down where/how/why this is happening...? I'm going to have to abandon Mediamonkey if this can't be fixed -- syncing with devices (and particularly phones) is a critical function of portability in today's world.

Hi, I am sorry for these issues. Something probably takes so long. Is it possible to send us user logs (Options->Send logs) during the scan...approximately after 5 minutes ? After that, please post log id here.

Just loaded 102, was still using 100 because the Thread at the top of the section was not updated when 102 came out ...

I have about 4070 songs no the phone. Uninstalled app, deleted MM folders from phone and sd card. Installed 102.

It took a really long time for it to recreate it's database on the phone ... was worried that it was back to spinning forever ... but eventually stopped spinning.

I am connnected through usb if that makes a difference (?). Things appear to be good now.

just tried MMA 102, after uninstalling and clearing cache and mediamonkey folders from from phone and SD card before installing, scan still spins repeatedly, picks up one track only and album art changes to pick up random albums art. Restarting phone had no effect.

This is a problem that I had on one of the earliest builds of MMA. I persisted with MMA through various versions till other problems added to it and I gave up for a while till build 100, I know this is only a beta, but I've continuously run into one problem after another and frustration is setting in. I'm not complaining as I am well aware it is still under construction, just saying.

Samsung Galaxy S2, Andoid 4.0.4 if that is any help.

I had reported this problem earlier on my Samsung GS3. But since beta .0100 I have not see this issue.

Using USB. I plug in my phone, the circle starts spinning and after a bit it goes away.

Samsung Galaxy S3
Win7 current patches
MM Beta 1624
MMA .0100

I'm having the same issue, scanning never stops spinning, most tracks are shown, but only a handful show album art, various fields such as genre and playlists show tracks, then suddenly they don't. Plus playcounts are not sync'd back to MMW, I presume this is because MMA isn't completing it's initial scan and the database isn't being correctly populated. This is using MMW 1624 and MMA 100 on a Samsung Galaxy S2 sync'd to the SD card. As far as I can tell MMW behaves correctly, syncing the correct number of files, and updating files as track edits and plays in MMW change things. I've tried uninstalling MMA and wiping Mediamonkey databases both from the phone and SD card but on reinstallation the same result.
