Re: constant crashes

How can i reinstall without having to rescan all my files? It may not be the issue, but you should start by updating MM. Just back up media files and MM files: .DB (most important), .ini (highly recommended), (optionally, .registry). Normally, you can just do a reinstall over the old one, but you s...

Re: track properties different outside MM

Also, it's good to do regular "unsync'd" checks just to make sure there isn't anything slipping through the cracks. I try to do it, at least, once a month. I'll do thisfrom now on, but i still can't understand the process, i made this 'Sir Arthur Conan Doyle ' artist name change in MM, it was clear...

Re: track properties different outside MM

here is how it went: I selected about 5000 files at a time, there was no problem at all. Before I did this I checked my backups ( several off-line hard disks) , it turned out the latest backup dated 10 days ago was also affected. An older backup, about one month, was clean. So the lesson learned is ...

Re: track properties different outside MM

Ok, but did you try what I mentioned above? I just now did try it out with one book. As you predicted the import to the player is ok now ,no more Arthur Conan Doyle! What do you think about these 40.000 tracks? should i divide them manually by selecting a number of tracks or could i just do them all?

Re: track properties different outside MM

If you make changes inside MM they should be sync'd with the files. I'm not sure if I understand,if i , for example, alter the genre of a number of tracks, this is then written into the tracks. Why would I need to synchronise these tracks? or is a properties change something special, which I need t...

Re: data lost

Database is updated as changes are made. However the size may not changes as empty space in the database will be filled before its size grows. You'll need to figure out which database is actually being used by MediaMonkey and Date Modified would be a good indicator for this. It is the "roaming' one...

Re: data lost

I restored a backup and added the files again. 1. Can you give a step by step of how you did that/what that means. i closed MM and manually replaced the old db with the backed up db. 2. How are you creating your backups? i made backups with a script http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=...
