Playlist Import from MM4 -> MM5 Not Working

Post by TroyNye71 »

Getting Wife's PC set up with new MM5 install and trying to bring in her playlists (.M3Us). I get it to see the playlists in imported playlists, but they are all empty.

I look at the .M3U files and the path looks right, its showing for example:
#EXTINF: 221, Bell Biv Devoe - Dope!
..\Nye Music Library\Bell Biv Devoe\Poison\01 - Bell Biv Devoe - Dope.mp3
(And etcetera)

She can see the drive which is M:\Nye Music\Nye Music Library and the folder exists.

What can I do to get her up and running? Any advice would be appreciated. (Happy Wife and all that ya know...)

Paths on the Playlists are relative, thus where the Playlists are stored matters. Based on the information the Playlists should be in the root M drive for scanning.

Good advice.. Closer.. Moved the .M3U's to the root of M:\ and now some show up, and some don't.. Weird right?? Playlists are there but some songs show, some don't. Some playlists have music, some dont..

Any thoughts?

Have you tried removing the Playlists (the once not working) from MediaMonkey and then rescan them again?

If that fails, then presumably there are still Path issues on the Playlists.
