MM Android Pro can't find sync server [#15000]

Post by CptCeeJay » Wed Aug 01, 2018 6:56 pm

Hello,
I have installed Media Monkey Gold v4 on my PC and Media Monkey Pro (Android) on my Samsung Note 8. My desktop uses a wired connection to the internet (no wifi) so I connect my Note 8 to my PC via USB cable. My PC can see my Samsung and SD card where I store my media but when I try to sync from my phone it hangs up at the "Select Sync Server" 'searching' step. What is supposed to happen at that point if I am not using wifi to connect to my PC? Any help you can provide is appreciated.
Thank you.
- CJ

Hi,
Try to put MMA into scan Server mode and restart MMW while it is still scanning?

Does it shows MMW server then?

This has worked for me, but has stopped working. Cannot find server at all now. Doing total reinstall

Hi this has turned into a disaster for me. Cannot sync via USB, haven't been able to for ages, and now my MMA cannot find the server EXCEPT when I restart my phone. Then I am able to sync until I go back to another function in MMA, then I lose the connection. When my son turns on his laptop, my phone has no problem picking up his server.

If I restart my PC, MMA finds the server and I can sync. But as soon as I do anything else, example exit the sync page in MMA, the connection is lost.

Which version of MMA and MMW? Try a reboot of device, PC and router.

Hi back again.
I am using the latest MMW and MMA, I always do.
I now cannot sync at all via USB or WiFi.
Via USB it always says cannot sync to SD card. Do I need a new SD card?
I don’t think so it seems to work for everything else on my phone.
Via WIFI, well, having recently moved house, again, MMA does not recognize my device at all over
my network. Yes, I have reinstalled both MMA and MMW several times. I have rebooted my phone and my router several times. Yes all the correct boxes are ticked.
The only thing I haven’t done is a W10 reinstall and I was hoping to avoid that.
Very depressing as have been a loyal MM user for many years.
