This is proabably because that song is "DRM" protected and MediaMonkey cannot process it. This is not a fault of MM but the control placed on these songs by, in particular WMP and iTunes.

It has been raised as a Wishlist Item already, that it would be great if MM just skipped over these songs and reported them after scanning but not halting the scan each time it comes across a "DRM" protected track.

MM works great EXCEPT for one problem;

after a certain amount of songs added (47 to be exact) a window pops up that says an erroe has occured while trying to add a song. why does this keep happening? I've tried restoring my ipod and uninstalling and re-installing MM, but nothing changes. HELP PLEASE! nothing else will let me add songs to my ipod. Itunes won't install either.

WMP changed all my files to hidden and system files. Do you know that command I can use to change them from not being system files?
Damn M$!!! DAMN YOU!!!
Never mind. This is what I used:
attrib -H -S "D:\My Documents\My Music\*.*" /S /D

PLEASE! STOP SAYING WMP IS GOOD! ARRRGGG. I used to use it but now i think it is a load of (I wont say it). Anyway. there is nothing much else to say...

I assume that those who use Windows Explorer to navigate their music and like to see album art, miss the album art browser in MediaMonkey. Otherwise you have both the Location and My Computer node to simulate Windows Explorer browsing.

Yepp, I like that function as well.....EXCEPT there are some bugs. Right now, everytime I create a new folder, it gets stuck with one of my album art images. AND it sometimes changes the image at will..... HOPEFULLY I'll stop using win explorer to find music and become a MM Master.... 8)

I leave them because when I want to view my music folder in windows explorer, I can choose the thumbnail view (the art has to be labled folder.jpg) and you can look at the albums by their cd covers.

I don't think that you need to leave the originals as you can export the album art from the tags. I don't think that this would lead to quality loss of the album art.
But leaving them shouldn't hurt either.

by Sebastian78 » Tue Sep 26, 2006 1:18 pm

Think I somehow didn't make myself clear there, sorry...

But I use the image file in each album folder to embed it in each songs ID3. I then leave the copy in the folder for later use.


Oh, one more thing, the more I use MM the more I like it......(EXCEPT the way it looks, which some user doesn't care about, but we are all different. I wish it could get more, eh "fancy"....because it has everythings else goind for it....)

I myself prefer to embed album art in the tags. This so far works with all applications I use and doesn't generate any of the headaches others seem to have with external album art. It also prevents problems when moving files around. The big drawback is that each song will increase in size by the size of the album art.

Others choose external art. The common practice is to have a folder per album and store the album art in this folder. It seems that the standard Windows practice would be to call the album art folder.jpg, but any naming convention should work with MediaMonkey. If you name album art folder.jpg you run the risk that Windows Media Player sets the properties to hidden (if you use WMP), I think that MediaMonkey should fix this issue by allowing album art set to be hidden. The question is what other applications do for naming convention of external album art.

I don't know which way would be best, it might depend on your personal needs and preferences.

WMP saves images as folder.jpg with the property set to hidden. MediaMonkey can't read these files so they're not recognized. You will need to unhide these folder.jpg files before MediaMonkey sees them.
Lowlander : I have all album art saved in 500x500 as albumname.jpg which I then use to add to the ID3 tag in every song.

Is this not a good way to do it?

What is the "standard" way of using album art with mp3 files?

by Hooah » Tue Sep 26, 2006 8:07 am

But say in a folder I have the cover image saved as "folder.jpg" and maybe the insert image saved as "cd-insert.jpg" it will sometimes display this image instead. It is just frustrating...

by fncll » Mon Sep 25, 2006 11:17 pm

And you can do this from the command line with something like this:
attrib -H c:\mysongs\ /S

where c:\mysongs\ is the path to your library (no reason to have hidden files right?)
