Re: Second PC playing music off another PC both running mmw

Thanks that's useful. Is there any way to remotely manage the library though. Ie what I want to do is to remotely rate the files. Is the best way to do this to set up a share drive and have MMW use the same share? That won't allow MM Mobile to manage the library though so I guess I'll have to keep s...

Second PC playing music off another PC both running mmw

I have MeidaMonkey lifetime Gold licence. So I want to install mmw on a second PC hooked up to the lounge sound system. I use the study PC to record streaming radio and split out across various auto playlists - namely around rated or not and by station - and a bunch of other auto-playlists. Is it po...

Re: Sync for Car / Sort by Directory

Thanks! Plug-in installed and now it sees a 'generic USB mass storage device'.

So I suppose I can identify and tailor to the unique device (card) under Portable Device Settings -> USB Mass Storage Device -> 'Device Configuration'? This will then only work for one card, but that's ok (for now).

Adding a specific SD Card to Portable Device Settings (Profile)

I have a SD card specifically for the car. When I pop it in to the monitor SD card reader, it shows in the media tree, but not Portable Device Settings so I can set a specific sync profile i.e. directory format etc. How do I add a specific SD card to Portable Device Settings so I can create a specif...

Re: Sync for Car / Sort by Directory

Thanks...

I can find the card - labelled "CARCARD" in the tree but not in the Portable Device Settings.. I can see how I can set up the profile in there, but it's not appearing.

Is there a way to manually add a specific SD card to the Portable Device Settings?

Re: Sync for Car / Sort by Directory

Dumb question... Is Sync Profile in the Sync Options? I can't find the specific SD card, so I am stuck trying to set the destination settings for that specific card. Once set up though I imagine it will be a simple matter of occasionally syncing the card to refresh content. I only sync 3+ star track...

Re: Sync for Car / Sort by Directory

Thanks! So basically a playlist can be used as a variable to create folders based on that playlist name... That solves it! So any playlist or auto-playlist can become a hard directory on a sync'd SD card. That's brilliant. Because most car players are pretty simple (at best) so it's just easiest to ...

Re: Sync for Car / Sort by Directory

Thanks..

I already have auto playlists for each station so I can use that as the variable..

I even have playlists for three or more stars etc so I have a workflow rating radio tracks on my phone and keeping only ones I like.

So I could create sync directories based on those auto playlists.

Sync for Car / Sort by Directory

My car player is pretty stupid and I like to record lots of radio. What's the best way to sync radio files by directory so the stupid car player can 'switch stations' by switching directories? Should I use a custom field and somehow encode that with the lowest level directory (e.g. /radio/stationx -...

Re: Installed External SD Card - Now MMA All Messed Up

Thanks... That was my original intention before it borked, I just unselected all internal memory and selected the same for external memory but it borked up...

I'll reset it all then and go for just external memory.

Re: Installed External SD Card - Now MMA All Messed Up

"Note: If you delete the /MediaMonkey directory on the Android device (step 2) but don't delete the corresponding device sync profiles in MediaMonkey for Windows (step 3) then you'll end up with duplicate sync profiles." Ouch... I think I'll just start from scratch... This may explain some of the is...

Installed External SD Card - Now MMA All Messed Up

I installed an external SD card in to a Samsung Galaxy S8. MMA was syncing perfectly fine until then. Then I tried unticking from the internal memory and ticking playlists to the external memory and it didn't remove files on the internal memory, so I manually removed them. But ever since some things...

Re: If I delete a song on my device

Agree completely... I just removed a stack of files from my Samsung S8 after installing an external card and removing the files from internal storage... I panicked and searched and found this thread and I agree... Sync should be firmly one way TO the device with only metadata going back.. As for the...

Re: How to Set Up Basic Sync

Moving along nicely now :-) Issue now though is that sync is getting stuck / failing after a point - with a long list of tracks that could not be sync'd and I don't know why - there's no specific error message. What I do notice though is that there are 50 tracks in two new playlists I am trying to s...
