I have tried auto syncing playlists from MM to my Samsung Galaxy S2 but this does not work, the songs all appear on my device but only some of the playlists do. When I try “send to device” the playlists all appear but some of them are broken and incomplete.
A week ago I got a Samsung Galaxy S2. As detailed in this thread (http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... 12&t=58815
) I had difficulty in syncing my playlists from MM to my phone. However, I managed to partially solve this problem and now the playlists sync. But, the syncing is haphazard and not complete (as I will explain).
Let's assume I have playlists 1 through 10 (playlist1, playslist2, playlist3, etc.) on MM. I have set-up MM to auto sync playlist1 to playlist5 to my device. When I connect my device I select “auto sync” from the context menu. I can see all the songs in the playlist syncing and everything appears to be working correctly.
I then disconnect the device and my device starts scanning for media files. Now, when I open the default Music app on my device I only see playlist1 and playlist2. Playlist3 to playlist5 are not visible on my device, but the songs in these playlists have synced. I reconnect my device and I can see that within the “playlist folder” (on my device) only playlist1 and playlist2 are visible as “.pla” files. I have tried “auto syncing” numerous times but nothing happens, only playlist1 and playlist2 remain.
I then tried using the context menu option to “send” all the playlists to my device. This works fairly well, all the playlists appear on my device with all their songs. However, this has two issues. Firstly, I cannot always use this option as it appears to copy each song over every time it is connected. This process is slow and since I change songs in playlist almost daily it would take far too long. Basically, I must use the auto-sync option to ensure that my songs are all synced up nicely and quickly. Secondly, this method of syncing is leaving one of my playlists (let’s say playlist5) with broken songs in the playlist on my device. Basically, it says that the “audio file is not recognized”. This is strange because that same song is playable when I am out of that particular, i.e. I browse to that song through the standard song browser on my device. In any case all my songs are mp3 files and most are at 320kbps.
I would appreciate any help/suggestions.
