Scanning usb drive forever

Post by raharris » Mon Feb 02, 2015 8:36 pm

I got my brother to use mediamonkey. He is a gold user but not very computer savvy. I used to use mediamonkey but not so much anymore. I am trying to help him by remote control without success

New asus pc with windows 8.
Mediamonkey recent download
Music on 2 usb drives , one drive is a mybook recently purchased drive

Old computer(now defunct) had windows vista and mediamonkey and used the same 2 drives. All was well and worked fine. New pc bought because old one was dying.

First drive music placed in database and works fine
Second drive, the mybook, cannot be incorporated and one sees the drive with (scanning....) displayed. Cannot add songs from this drive

Any help would be appreciated as to how to access drive and incorporate music into library ( which worked on older pc with mediamonkey)

Disable it under Tools > Options > Portable Device Sync in MediaMonkey.
