Is there a step by step install manual?

Post by Pretzel lover »

Hi. Been reading the forum for a while but haven't gone for the gold yet. Program appears very powerful but don't want to get in over my head with complexity. Is there a step by step install and use manual so I don't destroy my existing iTunes library and playlists?

What I have is a laptop that syncs an older iPod with 1000+ Roadtrip playlist on iTunes. I also have a desktop that I sync an older iPad. Both laptop and desktop have the 10,000+ mp3's on their hard drives but probably in different file structures....getting complicated already!

What I'd like to do:

Use MM on the desktop with Windows 7 to simplify all this and be able to copy the Roadtrip playlist from the iPod to the iPad and maybe to a USB drive and iPhone.

Does that seem do-able without being an expert on all the knowledge base?

Not really, but start here: http://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index.p ... tarted/4.0

and read: http://www.mediamonkey.com/support/inde ... ediamonkey and http://www.mediamonkey.com/support/inde ... other-apps

Don't enable before you know what it does. You may prefer Infer File Properties disabled (Tools > Options > Library).

Thanks for the reply @Lowlander the Help section should get me started.

What is it I shouldn’t enable until I know what it does? What are Infer File Properties?

Bottom line... MM should be able to accomplish what I described in my post above?

The main one is Auto-Organize. Infer File Properties will get tags from the folder/filenames and doesn't always get the expected results, it can be accomplished manually using Tools > Auto-Tag from Web (which will show changes prior to applying them).

MediaMonkey can sync with Apple devices: http://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index.p ... zation/4.0

Merging Libraries will be tedious, but there are tools to help: http://www.mediamonkey.com/support/inde ... ate-tracks

Once you're setup MediaMonkey can organize the files physically on your hard drive (last step): http://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index.p ... enames/4.0
