Re: Lost the ability for background play

Re: sync wants to sync numerous files from the device to the library

You have two options: 1) delete the files from the device and sync them again using the new MM instance 2) Import the database and settings from the MM4 instance that you used previously for syncing the device. This way MM will know that the files were already synced and will know its paths on the ...

Re: sync wants to sync numerous files from the device to the library

I would suggest you to retain your MM4 database and settings: https://www.mediamonkey.com/support/knowledge-base/purchasing-licensing-mediamonkey-for-windows/upgrade-mediamonkey-for-windows/ This way MM5 will act as MM4 and won't consider the files already on the device as foreign (the MM4 sync set...

Re: sync wants to sync numerous files from the device to the library

Re: sync wants to sync numerous files from the device to the library

1) Did you take your MediaMonkey 4 Library to your MediaMonkey 5 install: https://www.mediamonkey.com/support/knowledge-base/purchasing-licensing-mediamonkey-for-windows/upgrade-mediamonkey-for-windows/ This would be needed to keep Sync continuity. This is likely why there isn't enough space on the...
