Re: Create New Device Profiles

Thank you. But I am still confused. But please bear with me. When you connect a device without a profile, how does MM know what it can do with it? With the cheapo device I mentioned in the first post in this series, the first time I tried to send a playlist, it copied over flac files that were not s...

Create New Device Profiles

I still use mp3 players. Inexpensive, don't worry about losing them or having them stolen. Use with a decent 2 speaker and sub woofer system, fantastic. Good for dirty environments, wet environments etc. I got a no name rig off of Newegg and MM was able to create playlists and synch music. Yeah Monk...

Assume that I will move new files to the USB drive with my library and MM on it, to a folder called "ToBeOrg...

I have an existing MM, what happens with Portable Install

What happens when I do a portable install, if I already have an existing hard disk install? Where is/are the MM files like the MM.DB and the INI file ? Do I have 2 or what? Do I have to install my current extensions and scripts in the portable? What happens to playlists? Who do I get them into the p...

Re: Custom Report

Dear Gary, please look in the media tree under available tracks, under genre, it lists all your genres. Do this: File - Create Reports - Click on Statistics and you will see under total, for library, the count of genres and more details on your top 10 genres. Of course, if you were looking to do a r...

Re: Guide to Re Organizing Music Library with Lots of Playli

thanks. Is this a bug or a feature request? Who do you tell that collections does not show up in search? Well, it does under WebHelp:Playback_Rules If it is about collections, don't you think collections should be in the title. "Isn't it ironic", that the folks doing the help for the best software f...

Re: Guide to Re Organizing Music Library with Lots of Playli

I have a "collection" called Classical Music. I do not know how I got it. A search in help or on the forums does not tell me how to set them up. But it is a cool thing. Is it automatic? Really, I have no clue where it came from. Maybe over 10 years ago, I knew, but I can't figure it out now. Searchi...

Re: Guide to Re Organizing Music Library with Lots of Playli

Thanks, Can you answer these questions? Some of the stuff I am looking for would show issues that folks have had with auto organize. I remember seeing one post that said, "Be careful with how many files you set to move with auto organize" I have 6947 files in 155 GB. So probably as step 1 of the gui...

The monkey has LOTS of ways to move things around. I have seen posts about migrating to a new computer etc. I have not seen a more comprehensive guide that address pros and cons etc of how to use these features. I want to move things on disk, I want to rename some of the higher level folders etc. I ...
