Re: Moving files between iTunes DB and MM5 DB artist name is lost

Hey guys, getting pretty frustrated with getting MM up and running. Not sure what is going on with my setup, but I have been posting a lot trying to get this working as expected. There should be a import function without having to go through and change paths on each song, even if there is a bulk too...

Re: Moving files between iTunes DB and MM5 DB artist name is lost

Thanks Drakinite

Ludek, I am just having time to work on this again. I have the DeBug and have the report. Did you want me to email it to you or?

Re: Moving files between iTunes DB and MM5 DB artist name is lost

Yes the import/share box was checked in iTunes. In my version of iTunes, it was selected by default.

I am not sure what you are referencing in your link as "4b". I looked in the help files and did a search for "DeBug mode" and did not get a return. How do I run a debug log?

Re: Moving files between iTunes DB and MM5 DB artist name is lost

Yes. I used that feature and I am still not getting the artist feature in the migration. The artist field is still blank even though it shows correctly in iTunes. As I have done two reinstalls, I want to resolve the artist issue before fixing the file paths from iTunes to MM and the playlists as well.

Re: Moving files between iTunes DB and MM5 DB artist name is lost

I was able to dig in and finish the last issue we had. I did a fresh install and ran into this when changing the song path from iTunes to MM5. All the information in iTunes is 100%. MM is just not importing it. I reviewed the links you posted and tried dry-runs of them before actually starting the p...

Moving files between iTunes DB and MM5 DB artist name is lost

Just when I have this thing up and running... Now that I have been able to change the target location of the songs and the corresponding playlist, this. When I go to change the file path associated with the respective song I go to Song name > File Properties > Basic > Auto-organize Once there I try ...

Re: Backing up MM5 database similar to iTunes

Ugh. Now I need to figure this one out too. None of the songs have any artist information with them. They show in the respective playlist .m3u, but not in MM itself. Going to see what I missed in the link you just sent.

Re: Backing up MM5 database similar to iTunes

PS - Do I dare ask if there is a way to edit the Played # field?

Re: Backing up MM5 database similar to iTunes

1. I got it running as it should. The only thing that is zero'd out is Played #. I don't want to sneeze around this thing, so I am happy to achieve a 1 on the Played #. 2. Thank you for all your responses. I had to take your responses and combine them at some points, as when one thing would start wo...

Re: Backing up MM5 database similar to iTunes

Wow. Okay, trying a sample one. --------- Just copied a sample one. Move it to another HDD and used Notepad to edit it. Used the Replace feature to change the path in the .m3u file. Saved and replaced the old one in the MM5 playlist folder. No change. It just doesn't make any sense a small part of t...

Re: Backing up MM5 database similar to iTunes

Now get this... The path for the files is now showing up correctly when it comes to the actual Music folder (Collection?) The files ARE there. Played around with the with getting the playlists to talk to the rest of the MM5. Not sure what I did, but I am one step closer. Now I have *partial* playlis...

Re: Backing up MM5 database similar to iTunes

Making progress. When I open MM5 to the dashboard, if I got to Music > All tracks, all the songs are there and the path is correct. They play! Now the music is being pulled from the correct directory, the last part is having the playlists update the path for the individual tracks. Why is the path co...
