left click move and song gone?

Post by DickDiver » Mon Aug 20, 2012 5:34 am

Problem!

Got my music on a flash usb drive connected to my WDTVLIVE. So, technically I organize with MM a NAS.
The db has been read in by IP (so, look foir new files on \\192.162.178.4\wdtvlive\mymusic).

Then I went in MM into my genre knot and moved (I hoped I did so) a file by left clicking it and dragging it into another genre cause that fitted better.

However, the song does not appear in this new knot and has disappeared in the old!
Even refreshing by F5 does not help?


So, damn, what is going on, or where the heck am I doing something wrong? Should be so hard to organize files in MM by dragging them....

Can you help me please?

Check the Location node to see if the files are still in the Library and if so (they should) what Genre they have been assigned.

Do you have Tools > Options > Auto-Organize enabled? It triggers on tag changes.

Oh, yes you are right!

I had that on. Moreover, I have my library on my WDTVLIVE under 192.168.178.4 but the auto organize was set to the mapped windows letter (I hope you know what I mean).

thanks alot!

Avoid the mapped drive as it may cause problems in MediaMonkey as Windows sometimes changes driveID when it shouldn't.
