Artist Name reverse/'generate' script?

As a long-time user of Music/MP3 Collector , I enjoyed the 'Generate' function that swapped first & last name and/or dropped prefix 'The' to suffix. For me, this makes file organization much easier. I've Searched around and can't find any threads on this function in MM. Any chance there is something...

MM thinks usb external is Removable Device...

OK, I have an Archos FM 20GB Recorder that is essentially an external usb drive, and MediaMonkey sees it and synchronizes just fine. The Safely Remove feature works with no problem. However, MM also thinks one of my three other usb drive-only drives, F: is a removable device, as well as recognized a...

That clears the read only theory...

So, if that tally is in the database, what would make it selective? I notice that the tracks that don't update are from specific albums, which I think were ripped with MusicMatch and are VBR. Some might have been ripped by iTunes, but not many. Most are from CDs I don't have access to anymore. At wh...

#Played not updating, Read Only suspected

So my AutoPlaylists are all set to include only tracks with "#Played=0" Groovy. Except that some tracks don't update to '1' when they play. I've figured out that the whole track needs to play (or at least if you skip ahead 3 seconds in it won't update), so I'll let the whole track play and check the...

Virtual CD Cleanup / AutoVCD

Like many users, I keep my mp3 files on an external HDD and use the VirtualCD for listening away from my desk (on my laptop). I mentioned in another forum that I would find a definable 'Cleanup' option useful for my Virtual CD. After some thinking out loud, I envision an option under VirtualCD that ...

One more tweak to Scripts page

Thanks back at ya, Rusty, for udating the page. I suggest one more edit, however, at the end of "... should appear" Add: in the Tools menu under Scripts. As smart (& good looking) as Monkey users are, remember that prospective users or demo downloaders are using this information, too. They won't hav...

Where the direction will help most

At the bottom of this page:

http://www.mediamonkey.com/scripts.htm

Would be the place to add that last bit, since it omits this important step
while inferring that nothing more be done.

I only have few Tips For You: 1. <snip> Status -> Is Accessable. Thanks! Good thought. Will do. If I understand you correctly you need feature that will for example remove track from Virtual CD if Played# >=1 or something similar? The Feature would be nice, maybe as 'Clean Up' option for VCD, where...

Managing Virtual CD size

I knew this day would come... As I've ripped tracks on my laptop, I've moved them to an external HDD, then added them to the Virtual CD (VCD) so I can listen away from my desk. But now, I have more files in VCD than my local HDD can hold. How to manage the VCD size and scope? I've created an AutoPla...

MP3 Collector

I've used products from Collectorz.com for years to keep up with my CDs, books, and DVDs as well as MP3s. Their MP3 Collector is actually not as powerful as the Monkey for track and tag updating, but the reporting is very flexible, including HTML and XML generation, which I haven't seen elsewhere. S...

If it's in the Recycle Bin, don't find it!

OK, So I cleaned up the few actual duplicates on the list, and shut down the Monkey, restarted it to rescan the external HDD where I keep my mp3s. The external is configured so there is NO recycle bin- when I say go, the file goes. Except in Media Monkey. When the drive was rescanned, the Duplicate ...

Me too

I'm having similar issues-

364 of 12,111 files showing as duplicates, and maybe a dozen or so are truly duplicate in title/artist/album.

All are in my Virtual CD (I'm at work and the external HDD o' tunes is at home).

0 Dead Links, 8 Duplicate Content files.

*skrtch skrtch skrtch* Huh?

I'm with Shrimp- "will appear" is kinda like "can't miss it". Lil' help...? And maybe it's a Wishlist item already, but could "Get Album infor from Freedb" be set so if there's data already found it pops the window as if multiples were found, thus presenting the "Swap Artist and Title" function alre...

Auto Playlist for tracks not heard yet

How can I set the criteria so only tracks with nothing (blank) in the Last Played field are selected? <Edit> aHA! It's the "# Played" field! When = 0, track not heard yet! I feel smart and dumb at the same time. <edit> And as a corollary, is there any way to update the Last Played field when it was ...

I know this is an international forum, and I'm not sure if it's available outside the U.S., but if you're a CD collector, Goo Gone is your friend. http://googone.com/products_gg.shtml I'm ripping my collection, and while the songs rip I apply drops of Goo Gone to the price tags, jewel case seals, an...
