Re: MMW4 whacked after trying to switch to track leveling

Every track shows a Track Level and an Album Level. I weeded out the exclamation points based on what I read on the forum. I individually processed the tracks with levels that were greater than +20 dB to remove any that were corrupted or problematic. Volume Leveling option settings: "Level Playback/...

Re: MMW4 whacked after trying to switch to track leveling

The one thing that did not get corrected changing Player to "Play selected files only" is the behavior if I activate "Automatically analyze the volume of unanalyzed files." With that on, MMW crawls excruciatingly through startup and exhibits quirky behavior randomly when attempting to switch tracks....

Re: MMW4 whacked after trying to switch to track leveling

Lowlander: Thanks! You nailed it. I have had it set to "Clear list & play selected + subsequent" since I installed MMW. What I don't understand is why just adding Track Leveling so radically changed the behavior of MMW. Why I am now required to run MMW only with Player set to "Play selected files on...

MMW4 whacked after trying to switch to track leveling

Track leveling looked irresistible so I took the plunge, despite the fact that I can't interrupt functionality for long because I do a weekly radio show. I have 208,000+ tracks and it took close to 2 days for MMW to calculate all the levels. Now MMW has bizarre quirks particularly on the collection ...

Re: MMW 4 meltdown

Thanks for the help. I have everything settled back down except: While trying to figure out how to restore the stock 'Recently Added' auto playlist, I created a 'Recently Added Content' auto playlist, which I can't figure out how to delete. I can delete individual occurrences as they pop up but I ca...

Re: MMW 4 meltdown

Lowlander - "...a hardware issue with either the CD drive as you were ripping or the external drive." Wha? It's hard to believe one of these devices could trick MMW into changing it's interface. Is an MMW installation really that unstable? I've been using the same laptops with the same internal CD a...

MMW 4 meltdown

I've been doing a live radio show using MMW for many years and never had a problem. What happened today still baffles me. I have two identical HP EliteBook 8570p laptops with Windows 7 Pro. Neither laptop has ever connected to the internet. All music files and upgrades come from the 2 GB external HD...

Re: Rip CD on Win 10 hangs MMW indefinitely

Rusty, I finally cracked this one after over a year of doing a work around on the rip -> locate destination folder function in MMW. My Win 10 installation had corrupt files in BITS and SidebySide. I noticed that the file transfer speed graph would drop to zero while trying to use the destination fol...

Duh.

Don't know how I missed that. Underestimating the thoughtfulness of the programmers again...

Customize the names of Custom 1, 2, 3... tags

It would be awesome if I could customize the File Properties dialogue box and column names for the ID3 tags "Custom 1", "Custom 2", "Custom 3"... I use these heavily to augment the kind of database searches I do every day as part of producing a weekly radio show. I am extremely grateful you included...

Date added linked to track # when using Rip Audio CD

MediaMonkey could make my life so much easier if Rip Audio CD created "Added" tags so the last track is added first and so forth. I often sort my playlists by date Added and it is really annoying to have the album tracks cue up in reverse order. IN MMW, I can obviously get around that, but when the ...

Re: Tool for display setup - also recovery after db corrupti

This morning when I started MMW it inexplicably opened the DB and started up. Took over two minutes of thrashing my SSD C: drive at 100% before anything appeared on the screen. Then it was "reading files" slowly in tiny blocks of 100-200. Took 12 minutes for MMW to become fully usable. C: drive acti...

Re: Tool for display setup - also recovery after db corrupti

I was doing a wi-fi sync and I inadvertently closed MMW. No warning message appeared as I did. A bit later I noticed MMA said incomplete or failed sync. When I tried to reopen MMW, I got the message the DB was unopenable. This kind of human activity should be adequately protected by code. It's not l...

Re: Tool for display setup - also recovery after db corrupti

My database file is 514 MB for ~160,000 songs.

When I opened the folder with MM.DB, today it contains a file called MM.DB-journal. This file has never been there before. It is 0 KB.

Re: Tool for display setup - also recovery after db corrupti

I am using the full current version. And today I just received the message that the database could not be opened. So I'm faced with a rebuild again. This time I have a month old backup of the database and current backups of my playlists, so it will be less painful. I haven't started the restoration ...
