USB sync via sdcard adapter

Post by MasterofPuberty »

Hi there, two questions:

I have too much music to do a wifi sync for initial. Plus a ton has to be auto-converted from m4a.

Questions: can you sync to the sdcard via my adapter directly into pc?
If so, will tags edited in MMA of the converted files be updated to reflect same tag edits in the original pc files?

I personally don't like that method, it relies on MediaMonkey matching files.

But you should be able to run a Sync directly to the card, and then do a Sync to the card in your phone. Any Syncs after tag changes will require a Sync to the card in the phone, not the card directly.

Oh that's fine. I just can't leave the phone plugged in for 2 days. And apparently wifi is the slower method.

But the converted file tag edits will carry over back to pc, then? And is there a good tutorial for how to accomplish this pc-adapter-phone initial syncing process?

Wifi Sync is slower than USB, but only works while on the same network (so you can't leave with the phone).

Sync setup is explained here: https://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/WebHel ... Tracks/5.0
