Not off hand, but I'll investigate! :)

What version of MM are you using? How many files do you have selected/visible?

I have tested this script with 5106 files (some which needed fixing) in MM 2.5 Beta 1 and it works. I did have to wait about 15 secs between clicking the confirmation message box and the confirmation table form being fully painted. Try downloading the script from my website as this is exactly as it should be, it's possible some formatting (such as notepad word-wrap) has affected the code in the post.

The problem has been found, and is talked about here: http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=6554.

Here is the new version of this script, fixed for MM2.5 (whilst still working on MM2.4):

Code: Select all

This script seems like a great idea... how do I run it? I've saved it to the Scripts\Auto folder as a *.vbs file. Closed and restarted MM. Now what?

(Sorry, I'm sure this is obvious, but hopefully if it's obvious someone won't mind pointing it out to me!) :oops:

This script does not go into the Scripts/Auto folder. Move it into the Scripts folder. You also need to add this to the scripts.ini file in the same folder.

Code: Select all

 [FindMissingThe]
 FileName=FindMissingThe.vbs
 ProcName=FindMissingThe
 Order=8
 DisplayName=Find Missing The
 Description=Match "Beatles" and "The Beatles"
 Language=VBScript
 ScriptType=0 

But it's much more simplier to click Trixi's signatur and DL the script from his website, since he has been such a nice guy and created an installer, for each and everyone of his scripts, that does all this for you.

While you are there I'm sure you'll find other cool scripts. (Dont forget to click the Support forum link of the script and thank him for his nice work when you find one you like.)

Bex,
As always, thank you for your help. You are always ready to lend assistance, and I greatly appreciate it. Originally I didn't understand the part about the addition to the scripts.ini file, so the installer was helpful and time-saving.

Triximoto,
I visited your website, and I'm so impressed with the amount of work you have put into it! Your collection of scripts is amazing, and having an installer for all of them is GENIUS. Well, genius for all of us lazy and not-so-computer-inclined. Keep up the awesome work!

This script doesn't work with Album Artist

Post by harpagornis » Tue Mar 27, 2007 6:56 am

I tried this script with Album Artist (ie. The Beatles in Beatles, The). Though it didn't work because the tag's won't save.

I know this because I could actually see that it worked!(ie. The Beatles in Beatles, The) But afterwards I noticed the files changed back in The Beatles.

Yes, there's a bit of a bug with album artist in MM through scripting which I think there's a workaround for but I never applied it to this script. I'll see if I can find what it was and amend it.

New version (3.2) is now available from my website. I've replaced the SQL calls with method calls so this script should now be MM3 compatible. I've also tried to ensure that the album artist field is properly updated. :)

Trixmoto, great script!

I "expanded" the list for also correcting the DJ prefix. Now it adds DJ in front of the artist name if there is one present. This works fine.
Tiësto -> DJ Tiësto
Perhaps not everybody thought about that.

I have one question though:
Why does the script also checks the fields Albumname and Title?
Was this a little bit too much copy-paste from another script, or was this for a reason. I disabled it for me so it doesn't correct these fields and the script runs faster.
