Re: Android Auto Defaults to MMA

It took me a while to get a good test because my husband drives most of the time, but the suggestion about the remote button seems to be working. Thanks!

Re: Undesired Files Sync

IanRTaylor--I saw your post after giving up and manually copying all my music. It's a good idea but would involve creating playlists for my entire collection, which is a bit much. Still, I might have tried it if I'd seen it sooner. Hopefully it will help others who visit this board.

Re: Undesired Files Sync

I've given up. I've checked every setting I know to check, and my structure is very simple: I want to sync everything in D:\Music to Internal Storage\Music on my mobile device. On my last effort, I synced three separate times, and a lot of albums simply won't sync. I'm not syncing playlists, genres,...

Re: Undesired Files Sync

I haven't used the MediaMonkey manage collections feature. I just have all my music in two Music folders that are selected for Add/Rescan files to the library. When I select File/Manage Collections, the only things checked in the Media Tree are Now Playing (grayed out), Music, Playlists (grayed out)...

Re: Undesired Files Sync

The plot thickens. I can see the Soft Classical genre in MM for Android Auto (and in MM for Windows when the device is connected)--just not in the MMA app on the device itself. Using same device (Galaxy Note20) for all three things). This definitely seems to be a bug in MMA. So SOME albums with Soft...

Re: Undesired Files Sync

Thanks, Lowlander, but I've repeatedly reviewed everything I know to review. Here's what is selected in the sync device profile: Location: D:\Music. That is where all the music I want to sync resides. Autosync is turned off in the sync device profile--I start sync manually. The paths under Options/F...

Re: Android Auto Defaults to MMA

No, I hadn't tried that - and it was selected. I'll try it. Will have to reload MM for Android Auto in my car.

Re: Undesired Files Sync

Yes, nothing had changed on that setting (I just double checked to be sure), and most music from that location is syncing. Some is not, particularly (maybe only? I didn't check) the music with the new genre (Soft Classical). And the new genre doesn't even appear in the genre list in Android. But it ...

Re: Undesired Files Sync

Correction--changing the path in "Classical" under File Locations for my sync did not completely solve my problem. Sync was still creating a "Classical" subfolder in my Music folder on my mobile device, even though I set the destination paths exactly the same.: Music: Music\<Album Artist>\<Album>\<T...

Re: Android Auto Defaults to MMA

For the record, I never could resolve this problem so I uninstalled the MediaMonkey app from Android Auto. I hope this can be corrected in the future.

Re: Undesired Files Sync

Thanks, Lowlander. Yes, I'm sure sync was causing the unwanted files and folders to be created. I deleted the entire Music folder on the mobile, and that's where the undesired files/folders would reappear at sync. However, I've apparently solved my sync problem by changing the path for Classical mus...

Re: What Is "Other Media Files" in Sync?

Update: I solved my sync problem by changing the path for Classical music to be the same as for all other music. Not sure why that was causing music to download that I didn't want (not all of which was Classical genre), but at least it's working correctly. I'd still like to know the purpose of those...

What Is "Other Media Files" in Sync?

Can anyone tell me the purpose of Tools/Options/Portable Device Sync/Configure [my desired device]/Options/File Locations/Other Media Files? A pop-up tag says they are "other directories that should be scanned for media." I want to sync only files from a single desired location that I have selected ...

Re: Undesired Files Sync

Well, I've checked and checked. Would send you a screen capture of my sync settings but I can't figure out how. The undesired folders that are syncing do not exist in the one single location I've selected to sync. BUT I've found another clue--they're syncing as completely empty file folders. To summ...

Re: Undesired Files Sync

Lowlander (and anyone else), we're closer. And I REALLY appreciate your help. I did review the Sync instructions, but they don't help me identify my problem(s). As you suggested, removing playlists from my sync did prevent some of the undesired music from syncing. But there still seems to be a probl...
