Re: What happens if there is a filename collision on the device during sync?

Ah, ok, thanks. I forgot about that, and about the fact that you mentioned that before. Only one brain cell left to remember things any more.

Re: What happens if there is a filename collision on the device during sync?

I think I have figured out at least how to create and sync a playlist which I have created in mmw. Just one question first: I assume that I need to uncheck "delete other files and playlists from device" in the autosync --> device config, or else everything but what is in that playlist (the 5 offendi...

Re: What happens if there is a filename collision on the device during sync?

Ok, thanks. I thought I looked at that and couldn't figure out how to do it. (i.e., in the device profile on mmw relative to syncing a playlist.) I'm running out of time to deal with it right now, so I'll work on it later and hopefully figure out how to do it all. Meantime, thanks for helping. Sorry...

Re: What happens if there is a filename collision on the device during sync?

Ok, thanks, still confused, though. Since I am using wifi sync, it appears I will have to select the playlist from mma? Not sure how to do that. I'm also not sure how this relates to configuration of my device in mmw in the playlist section? Unfortunately, there are a lot of moving parts to this, no...

Re: What happens if there is a filename collision on the device during sync?

Thanks. Ok, I'm getting less confused. But I don't know how to make the sync selection just the offending files? Also, I need to know how to set that so nothing would be deleted in device. In the past, I have been surprised with what it either did or did not want to delete. Sorry, but I'm naive here...

Re: What happens if there is a filename collision on the device during sync?

Yes, doing a wifi sync. But, I'm not sure what you mean by "Setup a sync with just those five files"? Tell me if the following fulfills that: 1. Sync everything via wifi. That includes thousands of files on server and device, but they are currently 99.9% synced already. 2. Manually delete the offend...

Re: Simplify multiple field sorting using stable sort

No, I am not proposing that. Rather, suppose that I want to sort by Artist, but I also want the files sorted by Title within that (and each) artist. Then currently as I understand it, if I first sort by Title, and then ctrl-sort by Artist, I will achieve the desired result. That's what you are telli...

Re: What happens if there is a filename collision on the device during sync?

There seems to be a bug in this process. I definitely have the device directory correctly set in mmw. But, there are always 5 tracks that it insists on writing to the parent directory of that directory on the device. The same 5 tracks. Always. These tracks do have name collisions when named accordin...

Simplify multiple field sorting using stable sort

For MMW 4. I just discovered that to sort the item listing by artist and then by title, one first searches by title, then ctrl-search by artist. If the sort algorithm were a stable sort, the ctrl would not be needed to do something special. In fact, there is no reason I can think of where you want t...

MMA sync device deletion ultra slow

Syncing from mmw, deleting files on device that are no longer on the server. It is taking at least 6-10 seconds per file to delete files. These are files that about 3 MB each. If I use a random file manager, deletion is almost instant. These are files stored on an SD card, a high quality Sandisk SD ...

Re: WiFi Sync stuck "Connecting to Wi-Fi network

The other thing I'm noticing is that the "doing something" whirly thing in mma keeps going 'round. I'm wondering if this entire problem is occurring simply because mma is trying to read all the music files on my sd card (of which there are over 20,000), and until it's finished it just isn't ready to...

Re: WiFi Sync stuck "Connecting to Wi-Fi network

I also frequently have this same problem (including right now). Namely, when I click 'sync now' it perpetually says "connecting to wifi network. please wait." I have the latest versions of MMA and MMW. I have the correct sync server selected in MMA. I have sometimes been able to get out of this by s...

What happens if there is a filename collision on the device during sync?

The directory structure on my server is different than that on my device. Consequently, it can happen that when syncing, there is a filename collision, i.e., MMA wants to write a file when a file of that name already exists in the target directory (and, in addition, the files are actually different)...
