Re: questions about changes and classifications

OMG! I just realized that the "is" condition is multi-select so you can check everything EXCEPT the one condition that you want to NOT. So it can be done with a single criteria, but it's an exclude from set rather than a specific not equals (if you follow me). I hadn't even considered it could be mu...

questions about changes and classifications

I've been stuck in static-playlist mode for too long and it's time to start really utilizing this great app. So I've been reading bunches of old posts trying to figure out how I want to categorize/classify my library. But I'm running into things that don't seem to match up with here and now. For exa...

Re: unused columns are populated... with what data?

Yeah, I think so too. I might test it with one track some time just to see... Thanks very much for your help! I'm really glad I stopped to think (and ask) before just deciding that it was duplicated data and clearing it. BTW, I just discovered a great reason to display the Summary column! I like to ...

Re: unused columns are populated... with what data?

They map to the same database field and thus display the same values. Thanks for your quick response! So it's not really extra info and trying to delete them would be either pointless or destructive? Would clearing the values in Podcast clear the values in album instead/in addition? I just got ever...

unused columns are populated... with what data?

I was recently searching the forum for info on the Custom fields and came across a post that included info on sharing column settings between collections. As having a consistent set of columns is something that I have long desired, I got all excited and started looking into doing it. Being of the an...

Re: rating tracks - is it worth it?

This has been interesting to read through. My library is in flux ATM so I'm interested in other views. I do use ratings because they are the key to auto-playlists, and I've found that auto lists are the key to variety. Otherwise I listen to the same things over and over. :-? What I have been doing, ...

Re: I want an iphone but refuse to use itunes

I hate iTunes with a similar passion, having had it totally mess up my library the same as you. However, I do have an iPhone, which I love and wouldn't trade for an Android for anything (the apps just are NOT the same). I use iTunes (on my netbook only) to sync and backup my phone, but I don't use i...

Re: MediaMonkey iTunes plugin (d_itunes4.dll)

@sukelis Yes, you'd have to rely on the iTunes copies. I do this the ratings and playcounts sync back but the playlists do not. I know other users that keep their entire library on a portable USB drive. indeed, this is what the new MM4 portable mode is for. Perhaps that would be better for you. Wel...

Re: MediaMonkey iTunes plugin (d_itunes4.dll)

Finally ... you could put iTunes and MM on the laptop and configure that MM to point at the MM's database on the desktop. As long as the 2 MMs don't run at the same time this is quite acceptable - I do this. The laptop can sync to iTunes and iTunes to the iPhone. You're desktop remains iTunes free....

Re: MediaMonkey iTunes plugin (d_itunes4.dll)

Well, I have spent hours trying to find the answer to this, but haven't. It had seemed to me when looking over this thread and reading elsewhere, that this plugin could be used to sync MM on a desktop with iTunes on a remote (netbook) system. But when I installed the plugin and tried to get it to wo...

Well, I started trying to follow this. But when I went to backup my database, I noticed that the v3 MM wasn't using it, but had re-created a database in it's default location. So I tried to tell it to go use the one that the v2 MM had used. It wasn't happy about the format, so I re-installed, I trie...

umm... think I did something stupid

I'm very sick today so not thinking too clearly. I apologize if this has been discussed, but I didn't find it when I searched. Last week I was doing a round of hardware changes on assorted PCs in the house and swapped out the disks in my PC for bigger ones. To do this I booted into Disk Director and...

Thanks, Lowlander. I don't have any experience with WinAmp (maybe that's why I don't understand plugins?!!) Anyway, I've finally got something that sounds as good as XMplay, though I don't really understand which part of what I did worked and I'm not sure I could re-create it. In any event, I have t...

new with dumb (maybe idiot?) questions

I used to use MusicMatch JukeBox Plus as my only music app. But then I couldn't listen to music and run photoshop at the same time, so I started using XMplay as a player. Then I was trying to rip some CDs that were scratched and MMJB wouldn't do it, so I started using EAC to rip. Then MMJB changed i...
