Re: How do I import .m3u playlists from my phone?

I do not know why this is not made a FAQ and put in the knowledge base. There is a large group of people who use Media Monkey who have a record collection from perhaps many years and they are not like those who are purchasing new music and syncing new boxes all the time. No need to "sync" and try to...

Option for database update to "turn loose" Playlist building

I spent I think 4 months trying to build some playlists and the reason it took so long is that MM keeps dragging down the system with apparently hooking up, opening and maybe even scanning each song in the list as the name in the index is simply drug to a playlist. There needs to be a "rapid edit" f...

Re: How do I manage a playlist on Android with no files on P

I will have to check the version number. I updated them to the most current ones available online but not the beta versions. MMA uses MMA playlists find. MMA also appears to import M3U playlists in the /playlist directory on the andorid into the MMA data base. The problem is that the MMW software do...

Re: How do I manage a playlist on Android with no files on P

It's interesting also that creating a new playlist on Windows results as a new entry under the Playlists file tree title to the left but it remains empty. This title will be created along with the other headings of "Accessible tracks, Favorites (4) categories, the playlist I created, followed byt La...

Re: How do I manage a playlist on Android with no files on P

I may have just found a loophole! Apparently if you create a raw file using Windows in the specific format required my MMA (see above), then Media Monkey Android will accept the file as a valid play list on first discovery . I haven't tested it yet, but I believe that the file is likely read into th...

Re: How do I manage a playlist on Android with no files on P

Apparently the directory Computer\STUDIO6.0HD\SD card\playlists\hidden on the android is a left over playlist from another application. I discovered that even though the file in this directory is initial read by MMA, changing the files in this directory are not read by the MMA on the Android even af...

Re: How do I manage a playlist on Android with no files on P

I just tried duplicating the existing playlist "NewPlaylist1.fuaml" to "test.fuaml", rebooted the phone and sure enough to my disappointment this method does not work. Apparently MMA will not recognize any foreign file introduced to the /SDcard/playlists/hidden directory on the phone.

Re: How do I manage a playlist on Android with no files on P

Possibly I could create playlists via MM on the windows machine, edit the files, do a global change the link syntax from Windows to Linux format and save the multiple playlists to the Android. Then I would have to hope the MMA app did not use some database algorithm matching its database to the file...

Re: How do I manage a playlist on Android with no files on P

I see this question goes unanswered in several other posts as well. Some investigation found the following. I have a Blu Studio (cheap generic) Android. I was able to find the location of the playlists for MMA (MediaMonkeyAndroid) on my phone: Computer\STUDIO6.0HD\SD card\playlists\hidden The new te...

How do I manage a playlist on Android with no files on PC

Here is the situation. I have been without playlists for some time now since I switched to Android from Creative media player. I loaded all my music on the SD card in the Android phone. I tried a dozen Android players and was finally delighted to discover MMA as the only sensible player out there th...

Re: Virtual CD

Let me help those who have an issue get past some of the wise crackers here. My experience level is about 4 hours using MM but I was simply trying to extract a copy of a small genre to a folder to upload to a device when I accidentally clicked "Save to Virtual CD" because either I could not not find...
