MMA sync issues / no-connection / art work missing

I added a few songs to MMW. Next I added the album art in MMW. I tried to sync from MMA via WiFi to get the new music added to my mobile. It failed. I tried a few times until it suddenly worked fine. The files were copied to my android phone. I then noticed the album I just added before to MMW are n...

iTunes like import?

I've just migrated from iTunes to MMV. And I am stuggeling with some concepts of MMV. Such organisation of music. iTunes uses a dedicated folder under which all MP3 files are stored. When you import a song or directory into iTunes, it copies the songs from the source location into the iTunes target ...

Importing Music

It looks like MMW is good in dealing with Music stored anywhere in the filesystem. However, I am missing a feature to store all MMW music under one directory dedicted to MMV. And when I import music, I don't want the new file locations added to the library, I would in fact prefer to have the music c...

Re: It is so frustrating...

FLAC is a waste of disc space. This might be fine on a desktop, but not on a mobile. Aside of this, it is rather impossible for a human to identify what's FLAC and what's MP3. (Testet on my ~$5k hifi equipment). For sure true for music played via a mobile device with these common earspeakers. Accord...

Re: It is so frustrating...

Huh? To what else aside from MP3 should one want to rip? Isn't Lame a free encoder?

Thx for the hint on syncing Playlists. Once I selected Playlists as well, it worked fine.

Playlists did not sync...

Ok, it took about 8h to complete the WiFi sync. While the new songs were copied to my mobile, the playlists were not. I started sync again. By surprise, another 66 songs were copied to my mobile (I did not change anything in MMW, of course). Once this completed as well, I checked again. No playlists...

It is so frustrating...

I was looking for a replacement of iTunes/DoubleTwist and was trying to move to MMW/MMA instead. I bought MMA full version. I may have considered to buy MMW gold next. But right now, I wonder if it's worth the money. It just doesn't work smoothly. I may have spend over 20 hrs, but still running into...

Re: importing playlist without importing mp3 files

I copied the iTunes files into a separate folder for a clean start. It's probably not a good idea to have two programs, iTunes and MMW operating on the same set of files?! Also, I might continue to use iTunes to serve my wifes iPhone, while I am going to start using MMW. I could imagine a playlist t...

importing playlist without importing mp3 files

Hi! I just migrated from iTunes to MMW. For a clean start, I copied all songs from the iTunes directory into a directory "Mediamonkey". Next, imported my M3U playlists from iTunes. However, MMW did not only create the imported playlists, but also imported the referenced MP3 files, again. I found the...

Re: MMA lib does not sync

"You need to set MMW to delete all media files in the Device Profile...." How? Which device profile? MMW or MMA? "... if you want it it to delete files no longer in the MediaMonkey Library on sync" Hm. My issue is that I have double entries in the MMA library. Along with double copies of the related...

MMA lib does not sync

Hi! It took me a while to migrate from iTunes/DoubleTwist to Mediamonkey, but I finally got it done. Well, atmost. Because I noticed that I got a number of double entries in the Mediamonkey Library. To avoid any interference between iTunes and MMW, I actually compied the iTunes Musik folder into a M...

Re: Missing album art / playlists empty

Right. Some bad feeling remains that MMA did not show the album art, although it was there. Album art was stored in the ID3 tag of each individual song of an album and displayed when the song was played. But the album art was not shown in MMA when browsing albums. And although that issue did not exi...

Re: Display music by album artist and album?

Ok, I just upgraded to MMA pro, found the customization options of the main display via menu/Personalize which offers a view "Album Artists". Exactly what I was looking for.

Re: Display music by album artist and album?

What I want is basically the view offered by MMW tree via Music/Album_Artist, which shows all the Albums ordered by album artist. But there is no such tree in MMA?!? I basically just want to browse albums like browsing albums in real live, i.e. browsing my physical LPs/CDs, which are ordered by arti...

Re: Missing album art / playlists empty

Ok, I deinstalled MMA from my phone and deleted all related folders. Then I re-installed MMA and sync'ed via WLAN (instead of USB, which I used before). Now, it's all fine.
