MediaMonkey assigns individual tracks to albums

Post by DominicB » Mon Mar 05, 2018 4:18 pm

Hi all

I am using currently using MediaMonkey 4.1.5.1719

MediaMonkey has recently started assigning tracks that have been downloaded and deliberately left as standalone tracks, to albums.
For example, a number of years ago I downloaded Fade to Grey by Visage and for a number of years it has sat in my collection as a track and not assigned to any album.
Fairly recently, MM has helpfully decided to assign it to the album Visage, along with the little + sign by the band name, to denote there is an album there. It's just showing as an album with 1 track.

This has happened with loads of tracks now, and as fast as I am coming across them and undoing them, others are popping up.

It is really clever to do help out in this way, but I don't want it to. I can't see a single setting that seems to be causing this, but there are that many configurable options, it has to be there somewhere.

Can anyone help out?

Thanks

DominicB

You probably have the option to Infer File Properties enabled under Tools > Options > Library. Disable it (this will not undo it however).

Hi Lowlander

That's not a problem - I can undo them myself if it's not going to redo all my undo-ing, if you see what I mean ...

I have changed that setting and will see how it goes.

Thanks for the prompt response and good advice.
