Let me know if you need anything else. I responded at the helpdesk. I looked at the link above. Is this something I can interpret? Or, just for staff/mods?

Preparing for Sync from PC to Phone

Post by TheEmpathicEar » Fri May 29, 2020 9:54 am

Preparing for sync from MM5 to SD Card in Android. This, https://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewt ... 26&t=89765, was my first trip down the rabbit hole. And, this ticket https://www.mediamonkey.com/support/ind ... View/39267 has a lot more info. From this @Pavle,
To start over you would need to kill MMA process on the phone, even better Uninstall. Delete MediaMonkey folders from Internal and SDCard, Delete/Remove all the profiles related to the A51 in MM5. If there is no duplicated in A51 File explorer than it is very likely that you will not have duplicates at app, as on first Wifi Sync it will pair and find all files in MM5, so you should not resync all of them, but MM5 should ask you fro Access permission on first sync try.
I need to know if he was talking about deleting all the music from the SD Card too. I have been reading https://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index. ... oid_device Now, I realize that WiFi sync from MMA is faster with 1-2 GB of music. In MMA, Options>Sync Settings> SM-A515F Internal Storage and SM-A515F SD Card. In MM5, Is it that Galaxy A51 - Phone profile, disabled, allows the Sync from the phone to only affect the SD Card? I need to understand better how to configure the Sync Settings in MMA. I want a one way sync. Changes made in MM5 are mirrored on Android and not the other way around.

Yes with phone disabled it only syncs card. In the Device Profile in MMW check the settings on the device to PC tab and make sure sync back of new files and playlists is disabled.

I still need to understand the Sync Settings in MMA better. There are two: Internal Storage [which I do not want to touch] and SD Card

They are the same settings as in MMW (ie. any changes made in MMA will update the Device Profile in MMW). Just setup sync in MMW (I find it easier) after which you can use Sync in MMA to wifi Sync.

So, if the Galaxy A51 - Phone profile in MMW is disabled then the corresponding setting in Sync Settings in MMA will also be disabled? So, when you click on Sync Now in MMA only the SD Card sync setting will be enabled?

Let's say you remove some files in MMW. If you want Sync Now in MMA to remove those corresponding files in Android, what needs to be checked off in the Device Profile in MMW? Is it "delete other files and playlist from [whatever device] with 'unselected library files'? Or, is it something else?

That option will need to be set to All other media files. Otherwise MediaMonkey can only delete files that are in it's Library, but not on the sync list.

Example: I delete "Rubber Soul" by The Beatles in MM5. I want this to removed by Sync Now in MMA. In MM5, device profile, "delete other files and playlist from [whatever device] with 'All other media files' needs to be checked off? And, this reflects the fact that I only add content in MM5. I am going back and forth between 'unselected library files' and 'All other media files' and the definitions seem almost the same to me? Is this explained somewhere?

I did the "Start Over". I disabled the Galaxy A51 - Phone profile in MM5.I just finished a successful sync from MM5 to Android. I just installed MMA Pro [once again] and am letting it scan. I removed any internal folders from Options>General>Choose Library Folders - only the SD Card folders remain. Once the scan is done in MMA, I want to add an artist in MM5 and delete another artist. What is the proper way to add artists/albums in MM5? I have been using Windows Explorer and drag/dropping file/folders into my music folder on my PC. Now, I want to do this using MM5? And, I want to make sure that in MMA a WiFi sync will add the artist I added in MM5 and delete the artist I deleted in MM5. And, if I use Sync Now in MMA this will happen?

Pretty much the same applies in MM5 regarding adding files: https://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index.php/WebHelp:

If you want to move files: https://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index. ... enames/4.0

If you want to sync files, make sure they're included on the sync selection in the Device Profile: https://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index. ... oid_device

Ok, The scan by MMA took a long time. Two things: I have a lot of missing artwork across different albums/artists. I cross checked in MM5 and the artwork is there. Before "Start Over", this was not the case. [Other issues, yes]. What's the best way to approach this? Sync Now again on MM5? WiFi sync from MMA? Or, something else? Also, some tracks from 2 of Ke$ha albums ended up in "Unknown Artist". If you check those tracks in MMA you can see that tags are missing. I checked in MM5 and those tags are there.

You should've had MMA installed before you started a Sync. A resync may do the trick.

I did not realize the MMA had to be installed to do a sync from MM5? Resync? Are you talking about doing another sync from MM5 w/o doing anything first in MMA? This is why I ask so many questions. At this point, would a WiFi sync from MMA work? Or, is it better to do another Sync Now from MM5?
