Re: Album art does not always sync.

If you can reproduce with Sync (either USB or wifi) from MediaMonkey 5 please report it then. There is also a new MMA release being published to the Play Store very soon. Also make sure that all files on the Album (as MMW sees it) have the updated Artwork as MediaMonkey only syncs 1 Artwork per Alb...

Re: Album art does not always sync.

I have observed something probably related although I do WIFI-Sync. The reason in my case was that there were some album art jpgs in my music directory in MMW originally which also were copied to MMA (as expected). I finally moved all album art to the music files (FLAC and mp3) and deleted all jpgs...

Re: Album art does not always sync.

If you update files outside of MediaMonkey you need to rescan the files in MediaMonkey (MMW) for MMW to see the changes. So first check that MMW has the new Artworks, then check in MMW that the Timestamps of the files in have been changed. I do? I have MMW set to scan my library folders at startup ...

Album art does not always sync.

I keep a large collection of mp3 files on my Windows 7 computer, and sync it with my phone via USB. I keep album art embedded in each file. The "master collection" of the files is on the computer. I sync only from computer to phone, never from phone to computer. I often find better-quality album art...

Re: MMA crashing after Android update

After updating Google and rebooting my phone, MMA seems to be working now. I've listened to music for a few hours and experienced no crashes. Thanks for your help! Me, too. I guess it was toxic interaction between Google and MMA. Between my re-installing the previous Google update, a newer Google u...

Re: MMA crashing after Android update

I've been having the same problem for several days. At first MMA would crash in a minor way with an error message something about 'searching for updated artwork'. After the crash it would continue to work, but would usually crash again within a few minutes, and often multiple times. Then it might ap...

How does album art work?

More specifically, when I sync MMA with MMW via USB, and the album art is embedded in the file on the Windows machine AND there is also a JPG in the same folder as the MP3, what is transferred to the Android device, and what does MMA choose to display? I've long assumed that MMA always displayed emb...

Re: How to disable "frozen" message?

Well, I enabled the Internal Storage device in MMW (in Tools |Options | Portable Device Sync | Available Devices) but there's no change in behavior - I still get that "Internal shared storage appears to be frozen" error message as I described in my first message. I'm not going to install that "Motor...

Re: How to disable "frozen" message?

Hi, Internal Storage needs to be accessible as MMA reads Settings and paths from it. I think I downloaded drivers from https://support.motorola.com/us/en/solution/MS88481 But is MMA relevant in this scenario? It's MMW that's throwing up the error message. I assumed that MMA was not a part of the eq...

OK, I can live with that, now that I know it's not just me and that it's a known issue. Looking forward to the next version. Thank you!

Re: How to disable "frozen" message?

I have one playlist of 4606 song files that I sync. What "updated Moto Drivers" are you referring to? One thing I just noticed... I sync all files to a 64 GB microSD card, nothing to the phone's internal storage. Yet the error message refers to "Internal shared storage appears to be frozen". In MMW ...

MMA not auto-detecting changes after sync

After I sync MM4W 4.1.22.1880 on my Windows 7 computer with MMA 1.3.2.0824 on my Motorola X4 phone (Android 8.1) via USB, MMA no longer automatically senses that files have been added or removed. I must force a re-scan via MMA Options | Check for new/changed media for the new files/deletions to show...

When syncing my mp3 collection from MM4W with my Motorola X4 phone (Android 8.1) via USB, I almost always get the "error" message, "The media transfer process on moto x4 - Internal shared storage appears to be frozen.

Re: Sync w/ phone suddenly stopped

Are you sure you verify what will be synced in the correct Device Profile (sometimes multiple exist or internal/external memory get swapped). Are you running MMA on the device? Sorry to have not gotten back sooner. I've been traveling wasn't able to check your suggestion. MMW did seem to be using t...

Sync w/ phone suddenly stopped

As of a few days ago, I'm no longer able to sync MMW with MMA via USB. When I connect the device (a Tracfone LG L33L phone) it shows up in the tree, and MMW scans the device. But when I press the Sync button, the status area shows "Syncing LGE Android Phone - Preparing list of files") for a few seco...
