Composers

Post by sebastiaankop » Wed Sep 04, 2019 1:35 pm

Hi all,

I have an album called 'Beatus' from this composer: Pärt, Arvo (1935).

When I sync to my One Plus 6 (Android) phone I can find the album under 'Beatus'.
When I browse for composer 'Pärt, Arvo (1935)' in Media Monkey Android I can find it and I can enter his folder. That works... I can see his albums too. But all the albums are empty. When I check composer "Einaudi" the same happens.

What can be the problem?

Thanks
Sebastiaan

Could it be ä? I believe it should not be, but some programs don't like diacritic characters. Just as a test, you might rename Pärt to Part and see what happens.

Hi yarguy,

I deleted all music from phone and synced again. That did not solve it.

Then I checked other composers. Einaudi for example. Just like Pärt he has an entry in Media Monkey Android. When I enter it I see all albums from him. But all albums remain empty. It is the same with composer Einaudi. So it cannot be the ä character.

How did you sync (if with MMW, which version) and is the problem in MMA (if so which version)?

Hi Lowlander,

I use MMW 4.1.21.1875 and MMA 1.3.4.0854.

The files sync ok. But MMA does not display correctly.

Thanks

Sebastiaan.

Start with updating MMW, the current release is 4.1.24: https://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewt ... =8811&sd=d

For me this is working, I can see Tracks under Composers > Albums.

Hi lowlander,

I have changed the composer from Pärt, Arvo (1935) to Part, Arvo (1935). Then I synced with my mobile.

On MM Android the composer still has albums but the albums remain empty.

What should I do next?

Hi lowlander,

I have seen that every composer has empty albums in MM android. Not only Arvo Part.

I am sure that I have included files from arvo part and other composers in the sync list. And if I browse MM android for albums I can find the albums and they all have songs in them. Just not when I browse the composers. Then the albums are all empty.

What can be the problem?

Thank you,

Sebastiaan.
