You have 1 internal and 3 external hard drives.
The 3 external drives have two partitions E: & F:
All partitions are mirrored/identical on all three drives.
You plug in a single external drive and build your MM.DB from it.
You then shut down Media Monkey.
You then copy the MM.DB file from \application data\MediaMonkey
to the root of E: on all three external hard drives
You then add the following entry to the mediamonkey.ini file.
Now the easy part.
Open a command prompt and type E:\ and hit enter.
Then type dir and hit enter.
Listed will be something similar to this...
"Volume Serial Number is 58CA-F9CF"
Write down that alpha-numeric string.
Repeat for F:\ and write down that string also.
Download the following program....

Change the Volume Serial Number on the other two drive's partitions [E:& F:]
to match the Volume Serial Number on your "original database building" hard drive.
All your drives partitions now have identical Volume Serial Numbers.
You have now successfully 'fixed' the issue of Media Monkey deciding to
tie the database to a drive instead of a drive letter.
Now when you are in the middle of a wedding, and your primary hard drive crashes,
you can 'hot swap' your drives without having to rebuild your database or
Locate Moved/Missing tracks to get rid of the 'gray', while your guest wait and wait and wait.
ps...you may have to assign the drive letters E: & F: to the other two external drives.
I did not have to, but I have had to with other systems.
Add an option when saving playlist???
"Save as" [name.m3u] outside of the mm.db
and prompt which folder it will go into.
