What would you like to do exactly? What do you not want to happen? I am guessing you might be getting some type of problem because you don't have both discs in one folder or if they are the track numbers are confusing Amazon? I used to store all my music by CD, so a 2 CD set or a box set would have ...

I looked at your original message, and I see the problem. If the tags have different names, then it may not be found in that duplicates node. I've not investigated very closely, but I usually notice that files found have the same title, artist, track number, duration, etc. (or close to it) or enough...

Well, as someone said before me, who needs other's support if it is working with MediaMonkey. Anyway, I am not lazy, so I tried two ASX playlists, one with contained MP3 file and other with OGG file. Winamp 5.35, The KMPlayer 2.9.3.1309 Beta and GOM Player 2.0.9.3360 play both playlists, but Window...

You can number the tracks however you want without changing the file name. The track information is all in tags in the file and not in the filename itself. Of course, you can also use the auto-organize feature to just rename the files automatically with little effort. Search the forums too, there ar...

The idea is great, and I have thought of it in the past too... In terms of music, I thought this might be nice to tie together FLAC files and MP3 files that might be derived for conversion / syncing. I use something similar for my digital photographs, XMP format, which is just an XML file defined fo...

Re: matching iPod sorting and Magic Nodes...?

This is a repost from the "Wish List" forum, based on a suggestion that the problem could be solved by Magic Nodes. I have tried, but I can't get exactly what I want, which is why I originally posted this as a wish list item: . This is essentially a double post of http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/v...

Well, you are correct - that seems to get the album node listing as I would like to see it. But it shouldn't fix it. I can see no reason why a listing of albums should be divided by by album artist. There must be some way to turn this off... The real reason that I want to do this is to see exactly ...

If you go into your Library and look at the files to edit node, you can see the duplicate tracks node as a subnode. You don't need the gold version to see this.

One thing you Music Match users might want to look into is the Magic Nodes script. I use it a lot as it has allowed me to sort my music using Album Artists with nodes for the first letter, then artist name, and the album alphabetically... e.g. "Album Artist" | |-A |-B |-C | |-Cake | |-Cream |-D etc....

I think the network drive is actually the better solution - it's real easy to change the network drive mapping if the music source moves (as it will when you upgrade the PC it was on, or if you have to move it for space reasons, or whatever). Fixing the location for all files is pretty easy if you ...

What you need is for the "Album Artist" tag for each album to be consistent. For instance on a compilation with multiple artists, you might have your "Album Artist" = "Various Artists". This will group each album into one Node. The album artist can be anything you want as one user uses a format I li...

Well, I am not terribly knowledgeable on these things myself, so that is where my solution using an M: drive came in. Outside of Media Monkey I made the folder a share on the network and mapped it as the M: drive on ALL computers, even the computer the music is stored on. So, on the server I have a ...

I can't explain why it is loading files that are shorter than the lower limit you put on length, but you could specifically select folders where your music is stored rather than your whole hard-drive... In other words, avoid having the folders where all your game Mp3's are at to be scanned in the fi...
