Cant find Library now

Postby Weaves » Sat Nov 06, 2010 2:47 pm

Hello All,

My media Monkey starts up and cant find my library stored on my external drive. I tried the following:

http://www.mediamonkey.com/support/inde ... icleid=127

I thought it would help, but it didn't.

I have had MM for a while now and this is my first major problem. It's like it won't even find the external hard drive to scan anymore.

I did notice the following in my .ini file:

[System]

DefaultViewSettings=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

That is the only line like that in the entire .ini

I am using Vista 32 with 4gb ram.

I just downloaded 3,2,2 and thought it would help- but still no avail. Should I try to uninstall and a fresh install?

Thanks

Did you change the default DB location as specified in this FAQ article:

Tried it- Still doesn't work.

MM opens up and tries to reading tracks, but it's still doesn't seem to be finding them, because I don't even hear the external drive spinning. MM actually seems to freeze.

Creating Debug Log Should be valuable in this case viewtopic.php?f=1&t=69

Sounds like a driveID issue to me. Do you see the external drive and its tracks still listed under the Library > Location node?
