In the future, the device will be recognized by this plug-in.

Firmware supported

All firmware versions should be supported.

Specific Device Settings

  1. Set up a device sync profile as described here. Alternatively you can sync a selected group of tracks only, but this may cause playlist as well as duplicate track issues.
  2. In the device options, under the "Auto-sync Options" tab, ensure that *.mp4 is in the "Exclude folders" field to ensure that your videos are not removed from the device by MediaMonkey (if your device supports videos).
  3. In the "Device configuration tab, check "Use only the first Genre when multiple Genres exist" and "Use only the first value when multiple Artists / Composers exist" for maximum device compatibility.

Lyra 2780

  2. Click on the plugin that applies to your device
  3. Click 'Configure'
  4. Go to the 'Device configuration' tab.
  5. Change "Sync tracks to:" to \Audio\<Artist> - <Title>

Sony Ericsson

  • Connect the phone to the PC in "Mass storage mode".
  • If you connect it in "Phone mode" or "Media transfer mode", you can only synchronize to the built-in phone memory, which is only about 200 MB. But if you connect the phone in "Mass storage mode", you can synchronize to the removable memory card, which can be much larger. And the phone has no problem finding the music and playlists, that you place on the removable memory card.
  • When you plug the phone into the PC (USB port), the phone will ask you which mode you want to connect with.

Archos 604/504

  • On the Archos, enable the USB in "PC Hard Drive" mode.
  • On the PC, remove any drive entries where the Archos has been detected as a WMD.
  • Sync to "\Music\..." and copy playlists to "\Playlists" (I think you need to use Prefix rather than Sub-folder if organizing by type.)
