  1. Delete all music from the device
  2. check the auto-sync settings (select the playlist or folder you'd like to auto-sync)
  3. auto-sync
  4. write down your settings in PlayerPro (or make screen shots)
  5. delete all data and cache of PlayerPro (Android Home, Settings, Apps, PlayerPro, Stop, Clear Data)
  6. delete the MediaStore data of Android (Android Home, Settings, Apps, ALL apps, Media Storage, Stop, Clear Data)
  7. manually restore the settings in PlayerPro
  8. make sure that PlayerPro uses the music file tags for ratings: Settings, Music library, Rating system, Media Monkey
  9. let the MediaStore/PlayerPro scan the music (PlayerPro, Settings, Music library, Refresh mediastore)
  10. do the export, SyncBackRatings and import again.
. . .
If you don't want to wipe ALL app data, you could try all of the above, EXCEPT where deleting ALL MediaStore data. Instead of that one step, try deleting all the tracks from all your music player programs, then do the rest of the steps. If that doesn't work, do as AFF suggests above.

I found this worked for me one time when the 'Music Player' that came with my Galaxy Note (it was either a Samsung or AT&T app) got confused - it still thought there were thousands of tracks on my SD card when in reality, I had deleted all of them. And when I did PPro 'Export Stats', it said it exported 20,000 tracks (not 0)! The SD card was empty, and PPro showed 0 tracks, but the tracks were still showing in 'Music Player'.

But, I deleted all tracks from 'Music Player', and voila! All gone - no tracks to export, and Sync Back Ratings worked great after that.

Thanks for a great script! (BTW, your 'Sync Ratings from XML' worked great for me, including where I had tracks on both phone & SD card)

I have now got this working properly - I had re-tagged some albums and not thought it through and so when I tried to sync-back it did not recognise them.

I have now managed to get rid of all of the Apple software on my PC - thank-you so much for a brilliant piece of work.

When I sync back ratings Media Monkey reports only find 1533 of the 2941 found in XML then I'm presented with a list of 50 or 60 songs. What can I do to troubleshoot this so I can get the sync-back see more of the songs. I know some of those 2900 are android notifications and misc sounds files, but I do sync over 2700 files to the device

@ bettertthan74: please activate the debug log file and send me a PM with it (if it is too big, I can give you an e-mail address). Or maybe you can find out by yourself when you look at it.

Thanks for this script, it allows me to use my S3 like i used to use my iphone (thought its a mess, where i only had to plug my iphone i now have to open an UMS app on the phone, use settings in mediamonkey, click, click again... and then again UMS to deactivate UMS..)

It seriously makes you wanna throw android by the window and get back to iOS, which is seriously sad..

The new version improves matching of the songs in the XML file besides some other small improvements.

AUtosync is working fine, the devices are set as usb drives and I see a "music" node under both..

Somehow your music node is lower case on your device, but upper case in the MM settings.
I've updated the script to ignore that. :) Always this case stuff :wink:

Awesome, I would have never noticed that. Since you made the last set of changes in the 1.9.1 version the accuracy went way up for me and I am catching most of what's left using the case fix script for Media Monkey and some careful file renaming. Great Job.

2 problems for me :

1/ the sync back rating takes forever to list all the songs on my s3 (about 5 minutes for 1900 songs)

2/ its not taking into account the last modifications i made, like it doesnt see most of the songs (it says that there is only 150)

edit : yes indeed, it sees only the songs of the last autosync

I've had the same issue where it doesn't see all the songs, usually only sees as many as the last autosync. when I look in the devicetracks table in the database I would see the same number that the script sees (usually a low number like 100 instead of the 3000 I expect).. The only way I could get it to fix it was to delete the entries in the table, delete the songs off of my android and autosync again.

I think its a mediamonkey issue though. I found a few threads talking about it, but they only listed the fix, not what causes it to happen. I keep about 3000 songs on my phone and its very painful when it happens.

In my case, MM coudln't find any updated track. So i tried import xml addon(http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... 7&p=352389) and solved that problem.
I think my Android don't use English locale, so my xml file name has some differencies. Day name and month name are not Mon and Mar but 월, 3월(in Korean).
Anyone suffering from same problem, you have to
1. modify script file
or
2. use another addon(ex http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... 7&p=352389).
or
3. modify your xml file name every time you sync
or
4. Use Android in English

The day and month name doesn't matter, the XML only has to start with "exported_" and to end with "_songbird.xml".

Could you please activate the debug log and send me a PM with it?

Hello,

Thanks for your script, it looks like exactly what I need. Sadly however, it doesn't work for me yet. I've tried and retried, and I feel that I'm getting there, but not quite yet. I'm able to sink my ratings, but not the play counts (which is what I'm interested in). In player pro, I can see the proper play count (the one from MM + the one that I just played on the device) but it doesn't sync it. When I plug my device and start the sync back ratings, it goes to the process and a window popup saying: "please import statistics in playerpro (10 tracks ...". Then : "Rating (1), play count (0), skip count (0), ..." (but I should have one playcount and multiple skip count). and then the name of the song I rated (but only that one, the the song I've played or skipped).

Does my problem ring a bell? What kind of information more would you need from me to help me?

I have a LG eclyspe with android 2.3.6. My player pro version is the trial (I want to test before buying) and I have the last version of MM (4.0.7.1511)

If you're able to help me, I would greatly appreciate, I understand it's hard to provide support for the world... :wink:

Did you export the statistics from PlayerPro? Please see the instructions in the first post, under "Android devices".
