Sync artist, genre info from device to PC [#13548]

Postby Syncyguy » Thu Aug 31, 2017 9:26 pm

Hi,
I have MMW set up as my main library on my PC, and I sync it up to my Android device. Latest versions on both.

While I'm out listening to music on my device I frequently end up changing or adding genres and artist information to the tags.

When I come home and sync back to the PC, the genre and artist info does not sync back. Instead it gets erased because MMW syncs the original tags back to the device.

Is there any way to have my Android artist and genre tags sync back to the PC?

If not, are there any workarounds anyone uses? I'm all about workarounds.

Thanks! MediaMonkey is the best!

Which version of MMA, MMW and Android are you using, are the dates (including time zone) on both Android and Windows, do you have enabled metadata sync from MMA to MMW and are you doing a USB or wifi sync?

Hi! Sorry for my bad English.

I have the same problem. I have a Samsung S3 neo GT-I9301I with Cyanogenmod 12.1 Unofficial (Android Vers. 5.1.1), MMW 4.1.18.1842, MMA 1.3.1.0723. Dates (and time zone) are OK on both Computer (Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise v. 10.0.15063.540) and Android. I use the WIFI Sync.
Both "Auto-sync file metadata from the device to the PC" and "Enforce use of sync mask for files already on the device" are selected.

These are the steps I follow:

1 I Add a new mp3 file (PC.mp3) into MMW library, I rate it 3 stars and I write "PC" in the tag fields:
Title
Artist
Album
Album Artist
Composer
Conductor
Genre
Lyricist

and I Write "2000" in the tag fields:
Disk #
Track #
Date
Original Date

2 I Add this song to my Sync playlist called S3

3 I launch WIFI Sync (in MMA)

4 After sync, in MMA I play that file. Stop Playing. Properties.
Everything is ok, same fields as on MMW.

5 Now... In MMA I change every field, (except Type Music) with the word "Android", and I change all the numeric fields with "2017".

6 I Press "OK".

7 I Launch Sync Again (in MMA).

8 These are the final results on my MMW (same on MMA, if any):

Rate: 5 stars
Title Android
Artist PC
Album Android
Album Artist PC
Composer PC
Conductor PC
Genre PC
Lyricist PC
Disk # 2000
Track # 2000
Date 2017
Original Date 2000
Play counter 2017
Skip counter 2017

That's All.
Everything is in sync, but not as it was supposed to be.

So, after the sync, the fields:
"
Artist
Album Artist
Genre
Composer
"
are wrong, not synchronized properly
.[/b]

I hope I have been helpful. Bye bye.

Hi Lowlands,
Using the latest version of MMW 4.1.17.1840 (and also had the same thing happen with previous versions)
Using the latest version of MMA (build 694) (and also had the same thing happen with previous versions)
Using Android 5.1 lollipop

I've used sync by wifi and also synced directly by card, and it happens both ways.

I update metadata when I sync, so the star rating DOES sync back to the PC file, but NOT genre/artist or other tag info.

I'm not sure if my issue is a bug, or just how the thing works. I would appreciate any workarounds or fixes. Thanks.

Hi, I have the same problem.
I also try with the lastest beta version for Windows (4.1.19.1859) and Android (1.3.1.0736), but the problem still remain.
Is this bug fixed?
Thank you.

So it seems that you're correct--fields that support multiple values are not synced back from MMA to MMW. This is fixed in #13548 in MMA 2.0 (beta testing to start in the near future).
