Ratings do not transfer

Post by quantumqabalist » Thu Apr 12, 2018 1:02 pm

I had my 4483 songs all rated in media monkey when my screen cracked and I had to get a new phone. My songs are all on an SD card but when I plugged them into MediaMonkey on my new phone, none of the ratings transferred over, making me have to re-rate them all again. Maybe this just isn't a feature that MediaMonkey has on Android but it sure would be a handy feature. I have been using MediaMonkey for Windows for several years because it beats out every other media player and seem to remember it attaching the ratings to the MP3 files so that information would be available to the next device if those files were moved.

MMA doesn't tag the files themselves, instead it only saves changes in the database (at least for now). Syncing back to MMW will get the Ratings to the files themselves.

If the device was still operational a USB sync should have done the trick to get Ratings into MMW.

I tried that but it didn't work. Maybe I didn't do it correctly. What are the correct steps to do that?

Enable auto-sync file metadata from device to PC in the Device Profile. If the files on the device are matched to those in MMW it should sync tags back (it may also look at modified date).
