Re: Album art missing

I found the "check for new/found media" tool in the options menu but it didn't seem to help. I got frustrated with it this morning and deleted all files and cleared cache and data and then restarted the sync. I wasn't able to complete much, but it looks like what completed is valid. The album art us...

Album art missing

I had an issue with my SD card, so I copied the files to a replacement on my windows laptop. None of the media files worked correctly in MMA, so I deleted all files from the SD card in the 2 mediamonkey paths and the internal card. This didn't work as expected (files not found), so I deleted all med...

Re: Multiple users, same windows account

it looks like rating is "non-standard" in flac. But at the bottom it says MM reads Musicmatch but doesn't write. Maybe I'm reading it wrong.

Re: Multiple users, same windows account

I thought ratings were stored in MM and not in the file's metadata? I understand that artist, genre, etc will be in any file with an id3 tag, but that will not be the case for flax at least, which is the vast majority of my collection.

Re: Multiple users, same windows account

Since I don't really want to require my wife to RDC to the file server, I was thinking it would be better to set up MMW on the laptop. We have different user accounts there, so I can configure hers and mine differently with different databases. I had it set up with my MMW database on the file server...

Re: Multiple users, same windows account

A point of clarification. It looks as though a collection is intended to split a single set of media into multiple groups (collections) such that each can be accessed differently. It does not appear that this can be used to set a different rating based on different people/tastes/moods/etc. Also, it ...

Re: Multiple users, same windows account

Portable would mean multiple instances running concurrently I assume, so collections sounds more promising.

Multiple users, same windows account

I have my MMW installed on my WinXP based file server running as a service. So far, I am the only user and primarily access files by syncing my Android phone to it via WiFi. My wife has finally accepted that iTunes iSucks and is going to start using MMA and, by extension, MMW. I currently have one p...

Re: Syncing to Lollipop SD

Maybe just the power of posting. After struggling with this for a few months off (mostly) and on, one last try resulted in the syncing of a Playlist and trial song. I'll post again once I confirm that this remains working.

Syncing to Lollipop SD

I'm running MMA pro on my rooted GS5 4.4.4 (KitKat) and things are working great including syncing to the SD. I tried to get MMA (free) my wife's non-rooted GS5 5.0 (Lollipop) setup, but she can't get past the "grant access" screen when trying to setup file locations. I tried following the direction...

Re: MMA suddenly lost external SD card

I replaced the SD card with a new one after the last incident. The new card has not been an issue in any way until recently. I can't say that the card is the problem or something else, but when my phone gets low on battery the SD sometimes disappears. It generally reappears soon or after a full char...

Chrystler Uconnect

I have a 2016 Ram pickup that came with Uconnect. The vehicle can connect to media in various ways, but the 2 things I find appealing are the Bluetooth and SD/USB connections. When I connect my Android (GS5) to the truck it will generally start MMA and start playing a track (whatever I was listening...

Re: MMA suddenly lost external SD card

In the past 2 months, I have experienced a similar issue but the resolution is fairly simple. For no reason at all (seemingly), MMA loses the entire library. If I back out to the main screen and go to any menu, the library is empty and gives a prompt to select a library location. I killed MMA (Lolli...

Re: MMA suddenly lost external SD card

I can't say that I've fixed the problem, but I think I'm closer. I deleted all data/cache from both MMA and MMA Pro. I then deleted the files in the /Mediamonkey/ path on both the internal and external card (required moving the external card to a Windows machine as something was locking the content)...
