Auto Sync tries to copy entire library

Postby robinbahia » Thu Oct 08, 2015 10:26 am

MMA 1.1.2.0419
MMW 4.1.9.1764

Trying to sync to Moto G 2nd gen sd card. No matter what I check in auto-sync -- device, even just a test with one album, I get the error "there isn't enough space on your device... When hit sync anyway, I can see that it is transferring the entire music folder that I point to in MMW library. I've gone through every setting with a fine tooth comb and can't find the mistake, which must be obvious.

Thanks in advance

Figured it out, even though just the albums i wanted were checked, you still need to fiddle with the library button... check mark vs grey box.

Hi there

Please can you elaborate on your solution? I don't see any checkbox for "library." In the "Auto Sync (--> Device)" tab, I just have two playlists selected, totaling 650MB each. I'm trying to sync to an empty 16GB SD card inside an Android device, but when I hit auto sync it says there's not enough space, and starts syncing my whole library alphabetically. I've spent half an hour trying to figure this out - feel like I'm losing my marbles!

I figured out my issue. It wasn't syncing my whole library - it was syncing all the music in the parent playlist (folder) instead of the nested playlists I had selected within it. Even though it said there were only 1.3GB of files to sync (which was the correct size of the two playlists I'd selected).
