How do you connect to the NAS? Do you connect via wireless or wired? Do you access the device through it's IP or did you map the network drive? Wired ethernet connection. The machines are about 2ft apart, connected via a Gbit Ethernet switch. The NAS and switch support Gb Ethernet, but the desktop ...

Error when auto-organising files on a Network Drive

Platform: Windows XP Home SP1 MediaMonkey: 2.5.5.998 File Server: Synology Cubestation CS-406 I have now moved all my media files onto a Synology NAS (Network Attached Storage) device.

Wrong VAT rate when Buying MM Gold in UK

I want to purchase a MediaMonkey Gold perpetual license. The purchasing system says the appropriate level of VAT (Value Added Tax) will be applied during checkout. I'm in the UK, so the correct level of VAT is 17.5% I only noticed just before I hit the "complete order" step that the wrong rate of VA...

More Info

I tried this again with 3 tracks by the same artist, and changed both the Album Artist and Album tags on all 3 tracks, this time the chanegs "stuck", and i didn't even need to use the "Synchronise Tags" feature.

It seems that it's changing the Album Artist tag on it's own that causes problems, weird.

Still the same in 2.5.5.980

I have tested 2.5.5.980 RC1 and the behaviour is the same. I wondered about permissions however- 1) I have the file share set up so all family members have read/write access. 2) I'm running as the same user who wrote all the mp3 files to the NAS in the first place, so they must be writeable by me. T...

Cracked it! (nasty little "feature")

I found the answer in this post- http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=11212&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=15 1) If the folder you are scanning is a subdirectory of the folder configured in MediaMonkey for Virtual CDs or Previews, MM will silently refuse to add tracks to the Library. 2) ...

Install 2.5.4 (or the Release canidate from the beta forum) and try it. Tried 2.5.5.980 RC-1. This now fails to add any MP3 files from the server, even though it can see (and play) the files. See my other bug report here- http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=14130 for the more general b...

It's weirder than that Jim...

OS: Win XP sp1 MM: 2.5.5.980 RC-1 NAS: Synology Cubestation 406 Ok, this is weirder than I thought. I have just retested this by installing 2.5.5.980 RC-1 over the top of 2.5.1, clearing the library, and rescanning the Music share on my NAS box. Reminder- the file structure on the NAs is: Music ...M...

Second attempt to scan network folders fails

OS: Win XP sp1 MM: 2.5.1.934 (Free) NAS: Synology Cubestation 406 I think I might have found a general case of my earlier bug report. My media files are all stored on a network share on my NAS box, with this structure- Music ...MP3 ...OGG ...Unreal (then Artist/Album/Track under each file type) The ...
