I purchased Mediamonkey Gold yesterday with the intention of using it as a portable music organizer, loaded onto the same LaCie 1TB USB harddrive as my music. I am using the latest version available for download (4.02).
I ensured to check the portable installation, and encountered no problems in setting-up and sorting my music, skins and a few plugins/scripts. I made sure that Mediamonkey was terminated before I removed the USB drive.
Auto-organize is off.
The problem is, when I now move my USB drive to another PC, the work done earlier had disappeared and I was back to square-one. Even my registration details needed to be re-entered.
I've tested on 3 machines - 2 are win7 and one running XP.
I understand that the portable version stores the database and .ini files in the portable folder, so in principle the data should still be there, but it is not restoring.
I would like to:
-Possibly restore my earlier database - I am not sure how this can be done.
-Ensure future integrity of my portable installation.
It must be something I am doing wrong or not doing correctly, though I have followed the instructions. I would be very grateful for any advice offered.
Kind thanks in advance
EDIT: I tried changing the drive letters so that they are all the same but still no joy.
