MMA / MMW Phone Storage full

Post by billinvegas2k8 » Wed Dec 13, 2017 3:41 pm

Hello,

I just purchased MMW, and MMA.
I have repurposed a Samsung Core Prime as an MP3 player using this setup, it seems to be working adequately for this job.
I have added 64 GIG SD card to the phone, synchronized the library (35 gigs) via a card reader on the PC with MMW.

I have the lookup album art / lyrics set for both computers. My library does not have many instances of album art (yet)

Let both of them run for a while - say 5 or 6 hours.

Did a Wi-Fi sync with the computer, then went to bed.

Before I went to bed I did notice that it said it was "copying" files.

When I got up today, the phone had a message about "storage full" (paraphrasing),
ES file explorer shows that the internal 8gig is 98% full, however the SD card has incremented by 1 gig from 35 gig to 36 (out of 64)
ES file explorer shows a number of MP3 files that were written overnight to the internal storage.

I'm somewhat hesitant to delete those written files right now, since I do not know if they will be deleted from the PC's libraruy

I'm not certain, but I imagine there is a setting somewhere that is causing it to write to the phone's internal storage, thought I'm not sure where.

What I want is:

Both Phone and computer getting artwork/lyrics. PC has terabytes of storage on it, space not an issue. Phone has nearly double the size of the library (should) not be an issue.
I would like to sync the artwork, and the lyrics from both the PC and the phone, back to the phone and pc. (changes on both devices reflected on each other)
the changes should ONLY be written to the phones SD card, nowhere else.

Is this possible? Do I have a setting wrong? If not, how can I accomplish this?

There is no auto-retrieve-all Lyrics/Artwork. It happens on playback if the file doesn't have it.

There will be 2 Device Profiles, one for the internal and one for the external memory on your device. Use the latter to have files synced to the SD card instead.

Thank you for the information about the two profiles...

Can you (or anyone else) enlighten me further on this.

"There is no auto-retrieve-all Lyrics/Artwork. It happens on playback if the file doesn't have it."

If I play back files on the PC, MMW retrieves artwork and lyrics from the 'net...

If I play back files on MMA, it also retrives artwork (not sure about lyrics - don't see it, or where it goes also from the 'net. I believe I have it checked)

If a sync is initiated, does it not sync the artwork / lyrics from the computer to the phone, and from the phone to the computer?
in other words, files that have been updated on each platform synced to the other?

Yes, it will, with the appropriate settings (you need to enable the sync of metadata from device to PC).
