need help rebuilding playlist from MP3 Player

Post by BradBain01 »

I messed up and deleted my playlist pointing to my hard drive. I have a copy on my mp3 player and I copied it to the harddrive, but now it is looking at my mp3 player as the source of the music. I read something about an add-on, but don't know what to do or how to get this addon that might first this problem and let it resynch with my harddrive. Please HELP!!!!!!!!!

I have a playlist from my sandisk sport and when I put that m3u on my hard drive and I even changed the path to point to the correct path, it still shows the sport clip as the path and is still grayed out. All the music resides on my hard drive and it was used to create the original playlist, so it should match exactly except the path. (which I changed to match)

Your assistance would be appreciated.

interesting. I had to go in and modify the m3u file and remove the full path. Then it works. (for the test records) I would imagine this could possibly hit duplicates if a song was name the same but in two different album directories. i.e. i see a few that just say TRACK 08

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

if I uncheck the ignore punctuation in filename, it recognizes about 350 out of 700 songs.

I just created a excel spreadsheet and will re-add them to the play list manually. My guess is that it is probably getting messed up with the names of the files.

M:\Music_Etc\Music\Music\Metallica - Metallica\06 Metallica - Don't Tread on Me.mp3 - found this

M:\Music_Etc\Music\Music\Iced Earth - Dark Saga\04 Iced Earth - The Hunter.mp3 - didn't find this

The format of the directory looks the same.

Anyway, thanks for trying.

Thanks for this script. I've sent a donation.

A feature suggestion: accept a folder tree and for each folder therein, create a containing playlist.

Thank you for this script.
Not only does it help me with importing a playlist, but it also introduces me to the MM scripting.

Hi, there! I came across your script and I think it's in the direction of that I'm currently trying to do:

http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... =4&t=76356

Would this script be able to handle such a thing? If not, how difficult would it be to implement a feature where I could right-click an M3U URL from within MM (or perhaps even via a Chrome extension) and have it download all of the files into folder: <Album Name> and auto-organized as <Track#> - <TItle>?

Right now, I'm going through a fairly tedious process in order to accomplish this within MM, but it IS being accomplished.

I would appreciate any advice or ideas!
