How does syncing to android work?

Post by snowleopard » Sat Dec 03, 2016 11:45 pm

I usually remove my memory card from the phone or tablet and put it in the computer through a card reader, so there is a "music" directory on the card, when using the sync menu in MM4.x on the computer to sync the memory card, sometimes it copies the sub folders to the memory card for the albums and sometimes it deletes the sub folders on the memory cards and only copies over the mp3 or flac files so the files are all right in the music directory.

I would expect it to copy the directory structure over also so the files are in the appropriate album folder or am I missing something?

In device profile you can use same approach with sync as with Auto-Organize or any file/path manipulation with files

For folder structure you will need <folder> and <filename> masks more info at http://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index.p ... ormats/4.0

If you have MMA installed on device it is better to Connect device directly and or if you have MMA Pro use incremental sync over WiFi

How files are stored on the device is set in the Device Profile. Note that you do need to use Sync for this to be respected.
