Hi Media Monkey Users:

For some reason I've lost the abilty to see the "get album information from Freedb. When inserting a cd and it auto scans I get an error message that media monkey failed to connect to data base? Any help would be appreicated. Thank you

It sems to be a problem at freedb's end. I'm having problems with several programs that attempt to access freedb, so there is not likely a problem with Media Monkey. We'll just have to wait until freedb fixes it.

UPDATE: And as of Monday morning it seems to be working fine.

Yes, FreeDB has occasional hiccups. Sometimes it takes a day or so.
