Return synch sometimes stalls

Hi, I use MM4 (1475) to synch auto playlist files with an ipod (Gen 5 nano). Files going in to the ipod works OK (despite the unnecessary re-writing of files not replaced - a different topic). I particularly want the return synch to update the "last played" and any rating changes I invoke on the ipo...

Re: 12 second loop on crash

Lowlander, Thanks for the input. Re my first question about "how do you tell", I meant how do you tell if you are running the debug version? I thought that I was (it was some time ago that I think I installed it) but the help screen doesn't show me anything that distinguishes between the debug and n...

12 second loop on crash

Hi, I am using 1462 debug edition (I think - how can you tell?). Was playing from auto DJ from an auto playlist, generally works fine. Was some background activity with Norton doing some routine scan, plus a browser window or two and then I pluged in a gen 3 Ipod Nano (has worked OK in MM4 and worke...

Re: Freedb Frustration

Apologies for my abbreviated explanation. I am having to use Auto Tag from Web because the Freedb lookups are failing ... Thanks for the link to the scripts for alternate tag source scripts. None look simple to comprehend and/or install so if Freedb just worked so that I didn't have to go to Autotag...

Re: Freedb Frustration

Other sources? Excellent, because the coverage for track names I'm getting for recent purchases is woeful. I've got a 40th anniversary Aqualung by Jethro Tull - notable release of a classic album from an international artist, and the closes that Autotag from the Web can get is Thick as a Brick! One ...

Re: MM3 Skips Beginnings

Has started happening to me in MM 4 v1461 - running direct sound output with auto DJ from an auto playlist. After an hour or so of playing MM starts skipping the first 12 seconds of a song, and simply dragging the slider back doesn't recover the first parts of the song. Am trying 1462 debug with the...

Re: Infinite loop, lock-ups and crashes with MM4

I have had the end-of-song-repeats-with-crash problem, about 12 seconds of repeat at the end of the track, as reported in the topic http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... 5&start=15. See the second page of the topic for some suggestions about task priority for MM.

Re: .xxxxx file?

OK, have been wary of installs since my last experience with 1469 seemingly losing my DB (went to a mm subfolder instead), but will get the current debug version installed when I next have some ripping to do.

Re: .xxxxx file?

Same problem here, cropped up with MM V4 releases 1459 and 1461. When ripping CDs as MP3s, every so often a file turns up that has a filename.mp3.xxxxxx extension. It is listed correctly (ie no xxxxxx extension) in the library listing, but an attempt to play it turns the file grey in the library lis...

Re: Updating Media Monkey

In my previous post above I had complained that MM v4 upgrade 1461 had trashed my database. Well, not quite. I hadn't noticed in the "install mediamonkey in folder" dialog that after selecting the folder I particularly wanted ("Mediamonkey V4") the install process had appended the folder "mediamonke...

Re: Updating Media Monkey

Same thing here. Updated to 1461 IAW MM update check: downloaded and saved the 1461 exe, closed MM1459, double clicked the 1461 exe and answered the prompts for a portable installation (for backup purposes I put MM into a D: drive). Rescanned (as has happend before) but this time it trashed all of m...

Re: Song repeats in 12 second intervals

I have just had MMV4.1459 do this to me. MM is set up with AutoDJ playing from from an autoplaylist. It had been running for an hour (no interaction from me since bringing the PC out of hibernation) and just started repeating the last 12 secs of one song. MM froze and I had to kill it with Task Mana...

Re: Version 4 wiped out my Custom Fields

Yep, the V4 upgrade wiped all 5 of my custom column names, but luckily kept all of the data. I had to go back to an old copy of the mm.ini file to get the column names again and reset those through the Edit/Options/Appearance dialog box. Custom fields are now as they were, but its a strange oversigh...

Playcounts mangled by V3 to V4 Upgrade

Hi, Successful V3 to V4 upgrade about a week ago. I use playcount to ensure I hear an even spread of music througoh the 20000 tracks in the library. Just noticed that my playcounts have taken on strange values. Above a value of 8 (a plausible decimal value in my library), values go up irregularly wi...
