iPhone and iPad sync is very slow

Post by montu » Sat Jun 08, 2013 3:26 pm

MM syncs very slow with my iPhone 3Gs and my iPad 3.

I try many different versions of MM also betas and installed and deinstalled MM many times also as portable with no luck.

Sync time for an 11 track album is araund 1:45 min.
With iTunes I can sync the same album in just 10 seconds without any problem.

Sometimes I have the feeling, that MM is working on something in the background but I don't have a clue what MM does.

I tried different USB-Ports with no better sync speed.

The files to sync are all MP3, most with 320 kbit/s.

At the moment I use beta 4.1.0.1641 but as I say before, it's the same with other version also the latest stable too.

Can anybody help?

That's nothing. I just waited over four hours, trying to synch ~2700 mp3s to my iPod. Worst of all, after 4 hours, it was only up to 1028, and MM suddenly exited. I couldn't believe it! I'm trying to decide now whether I give it another try, or go back to iTunes. I HATE iTunes, but I am quickly becoming just as frustrated with MM.

Sync time can be influenced by Auto-Conversion rules (set in Device Profile for the device).

Thanks for the tip Lowlander. For best results, how should auto-conversion rules be set? I currently have mine set to installation defaults.

If you're syncing MP3 to an Apple device it doesn't need to be converted as Apple devices support MP3.

Uninstall Media Monkey completly with all registry entries.

Reinstall the latest beta build and the problem still exists.

Not that a convert would be necessary but there are all switch off.

Doesn't help anyway.

Then create a debug log (step 4b) and send it to support: http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... f=12&t=341

Go to your IPOD/IPHONE and delete all music from the device, and then re-sync with MediaMonkey.

Settings, General, Usage, Music, Edit, Red Minus, and then Delete

Hello slvbeard,

thanks for your tip.

I give it a try but it doesn't wind up the sync speed.

I'm still waiting for a solution.

I've noticed that the sync seems slower when the IPOD gets close to full, maybe 1GB-2GB of free space left on it.

That's not the problem.
My iPhone has 14 of 32 GB free and still syncs slow, very slow.

A playlist with 10 songs and aprox. 5 MB each, needs 5 min to sync.

Syncing with iTunes is as fast as ever and don't need 30s.

Comes to a screeching half about 1500 tracks in. I've had probably one of the longest open tickets, send in a ton of debugs. It just doesn't work. I got the 4s 64GB on release, it's never worked fluidly with MediaMonkey. I've tossed it up as, maybe next phone.
