You would probably really have to check into the laws... It might be illegal, but generally if you burn and re-rip a file that you own and you only use, I don't think you'd have too much to worry about. The big target when it comes to legal action is transferring files to others who haven't paid for...

Look into the Magic Nodes script. I believe there are example nodes that are used to find albums with more than a few tracks (i.e. full albums as opposed to EP's or Singles). You could modify that example to fit your needs (i.e. a less than instead of greater than).

Thank you again, ZvezdanD. Now the zeros are gone! I like that the year is visible in the node. But I would prefer it to use Album Artist instead of Artist. Now the compilation albums (Various Artists) are listed several times each. Are they listing as various artists? or are they listing as the tr...

That's why I asked the question if you reconfigured your mp3 player after the reinstall.

Huhh... like the original poster, everytime I create a playlist and hit save, I end up with a pla file (or maybe a pls file).. Regardless, they definitely are not m3u files. I do not get m3u files unless I explicitly export to m3u. This has been my observation since I started at MM 2.0 to now at 2.5...

The library is just that, a library. However, if you really want to just play through your whole library, you can queue all of your library into your now playlist list.

Hmmm , I use MM3, and your suggestion gives artist - album (year0000) I do not know why the 4 zeros are added after each year. I guess I shall have to read this whole monster thread to try to figure out what is happening with these Magic Nodes. MAGIC! Thank you for the suggestion! Well, it looks li...

If dragging a m3u file into MM as I explained earlier created a pla file then you didn't start out with a m3u. An m3u file looks like this inside, it's more than just changing the file extension to m3u. How are you creating an m3u file intially outside of MM? #EXTM3U #EXTINF:222380,Cat Scratch Feve...

1. When you scan your folders, make sure you have m3u as one of the formats to be scanned in. 2. After a scan, all m3u files show up under the node playlists in a subnode called "imported m3u" (or something similar... I don't have MM available at this moment). 3. To save a m3u file you have to choos...

I should also mention that the different speed settings have quite an effect. Too fast seems to make things a little hectic, and not very smooth.

In MM, select on a file, right click it, and select properties. That brings up the tags for a particular file. Edit them as needed.

Yes, I don't think setting it up for USB mode is an issue if you are seeing it as a drive letter. So you are seeing it in the left pane in MM? If that is the case, it seems like you should be able to sync to it. Have you tried dragging and dropping a file onto it in the left pane? That will sync a f...

This is a feature that will be made available in MM3 but does not exist in MM2. In the MM3 alphas, you can create this effect by setting the artist tag to something like this: Lynyrd Skynyrd; Montgomery Gentry The ; separates different artists (and can be used for genres too) and should show them as...
