[Solved]On inserting a CD/DVD mediamonkey 3.2 freezes.

Post by doublejointedboy » Mon Dec 21, 2009 4:21 am

On inserting a CD/DVD mediamonkey 3.2 freezes.

I've no idea what to do next. I want to use mediamonkey because iTunes installs hundreds of other apps.

I probably wont use mediamonkey to rip CDs but I do need it to keep running if I go to watch a DVD or rip a CD in EAC for example. I don't want to have to close mediamonkey every time I use my optical drive.

You can disable MM from interacting with any drive letter by editing the MediaMonkey.ini file.

Find

IgnoreDriveLetter=AB
and change to IgnoreDriveLetter=ABX
where X is your CD/DVD drive letter.

Perfect fix for my requirements! Thanks so much nohitter151!

I had a quick search of the forums but I guess I wasn't looking closely enough.

You've made using mediamonkey a true itunes alternative for me.

I experineced a simialr problem. I upgarded to new Win 7 (64 bit), library loaded fine from My Music on Drive c. When I try to put a blank CD for burning, load a CD to rip or even hit the Burn button, MM freezes and greys out and I have to do a forced shutdonw via Cnt/Alt/Del. Is this the same thing you had issue with? Is this a solution for me?

It's only a solution for you if you don't plan on using the ripping or burning features of MM.

Hello! I have the same Problem on a windows 7 64 bit PC. Plattform Windows 7 pro on a Intel Xeon. If I try to rip a CD Windows is freezing and I must do a Hardreset with Power Button.

Is there any 64 bit Version?

Dear Ludek,

From your entries, it appears as though you are working on a fix for this, had a potential fix, but in the notes I noticed you are still working with PrimoEngine via amail (?), so maybe noe fix yet. I assume this means it is being worked on and I will wait for the official fix to come out and you will provide us instruction or an offical update will come out. Please confirm.

In the meantime I performed a system restore to avert any Win 7 issues from hard shut-down and will suffer with Windows Media or even worse Itunes (I mean this as a compliment to MM of course). Thanks

GD

I, too, have this issue on my new Sony Vaio laptop running Win7 64. I just haven't had the time to deal with it or post regarding it. Thought I would at least speak up now to show that it is not an isolated issue.

Yes, keep an eye out for the next beta version of MM.

I suppose it's a lot of work to fix something like this. I sure need it so thanks developers for laboring on this one.

I too am having this problem with Windows 7 64 bit. Any touch of the CD drive freezes MM (and sometimes the explorer that spawned it) and forces a hard reboot. Thought this might be a Win 7 64 issue but sounds like a MM fix is coming out in a future version. Please hurry
