Dropbox support (note: not like clouddrive!)

I, and others, would very much like to put our music and MM.DB on dropbox, because unlike clouddrive and unlike what I know of MM4's streaming service, it synchronizes the files between machines so that I have all my music even if I'm completely offline, far away from civilization, with my laptop. T...

Re: A new twist on the drive letter issue.

This doesn't mean that the current implementation doesn't have its share of problems, but suggested solutions to this problem have been discussed at length on the forum and so far the developers haven't shown interest in addressing this. Heh. I was starting to think you were one of the devs; I gues...

Re: A new twist on the drive letter issue.

You would need to change the dropbox drive serial Oh, sorry, I didn't explain dropbox. That's not how dropbox works at all. It synchronizes automatically with a directory on your normal OS drive. (I then use "mklink /j" to make it appear as though various directories around the system are in the dr...

Re: A new twist on the drive letter issue.

Portable drives is the reason. They can change drive letters depending on order connected and using driveID avoids this problem. You seem to be confusing "labels" and "serial numbers" when you say "driveID". The label is the string that shows up next to the drive letter in Explorer. The serial numb...

Re: A new twist on the drive letter issue.

A friend suggests that respecting drive *labels* instead of either serial numbers or drive letters would solve this problem. Is there a reason mediamonkey doesn't do that?

A new twist on the drive letter issue.

I'm moving to mediamonkey f'reals; purchased and everything (this may be obvious from my many posts :D). I have two computers I use regularily, and I didn't want to deal with manually updating, so I stuck all my music in DropBox. (I bet you can see where this is going) I also stuck the *database* in...

Re: More Advanced Search/Autoplaylist Criteria

Also create one Playlist with: ((Rating = Unknown) or (Rating >= 1.5 Stars)) and Second Playlist: "Playlist one" and Length (seconds) > 45s Yeah, that's actually the method I'm going with now; took me a while to find a post that suggested it. :) "Playlist is not" is *especially* helpful for what I'...

Re: Search troubles with Occasion and NOT

I think you're entering it wrong, it should be: rating:3.. Occasion:-Special http://www.mediamonkey.com/sw/webhelp/frame/index.html?search.htm Nope; that gives me an SQL error that includes "WHERE SongsText MATCH 'occasion: -special*'", which is very much the wrong thing. And yes, that's the help f...

Re: Search troubles with Occasion and NOT

I still say that's a bug, but in case other people end up searching for this, here's the solutions I've found: - Make a playlist with "Occasion:Special". Make another playlist with "rating >= 3" and "playlist is not [the other playlist]". This solves pretty much anything for me. - MegaDJ: http://www...

Re: Magic Nodes 4.1.2 w/ 370 masks & real GUI (2011-03-07)[M

How do I sync MN nodes to a device as playlists, without going to each one and exporting it or "Send to... / Playlist"? You could sync MN node as playlist if you place that node in the Playlists branch using Position dropdown lists: Child of - Playlists or specifying Child of:Playlists|Position:Chi...

Re: Magic Nodes 4.1.2 w/ 370 masks & real GUI (2011-03-07)[M

My apologies if I've failed to find something already described; I did search, but there was a lot to go through.

How do I sync MN nodes to a device as playlists, without going to each one and exporting it or "Send to... / Playlist"?

Thanks.

The new Magic Nodes, http://solair.eunet.rs/~zvezdand/MagicNodes.htm, also works well for me for this.
