Re: My FLAC files are being changed to MP3 when syncing

Have a look at Tools > Options > Portable/Audio Devices. Look for your Archos 5 in the list of devices, and click on "Configure". Then click the "options" tab on the device profile window that comes up. Under "options" look at the "auto-conversion" settings. Here you can tell MM to copy across FLAC ...

Re: Unwanted keyboard hot key

When you say "disabled", what do you mean? How did you disable the hotkeys?

Re: Location of MM.DB

Note that I, and others, have experienced problems with trying to run mm.db off a NAS. So if by "server" you mean a NAS, be warned!

(I now maintain local mm.dbs. I work mainly on one PC and backup mm.db to other locations, which process can be automated and works well).

Re: Random playlist rules for genres

Oh, I'm sorry. Your other idea seem unapplicable too, because I constantly add new album to my collection... and I hate to spent too much time to classify it properly, so I just auto-tag them and everything it's done in 2 clicks. :) Last.fm just analyze the singer and the songs you're listening to,...

Re: How to target only certain directories

Another way might be to install MM portably and check for duplicates using that.

Re: How do I get songs in Disc#, Track# sequence?

There is a disk number field, isn't there? If that's set correctly, that might help.

I always set "album artist" as "Various Artists" when editing compilations.

Re: MM SQL Server

It would be great to be able to run off a NAS stored mm.db. I gave up trying.

Re: Getting confused on this !

Your symptoms, to make this as clear as possible, point to you having installed MM twice on two different computers. This probably means you have two mm.db files, which you will probably find in the default location on each machine. You have your music on an external hard-drive, and you have told MM...

Re: advanced search issue

... and have you double checked your tags etc for the Dr Dre album to make sure it's properly set up as an album? If it's got different contributors then I'm thinking there's a possibility some of the tracks have become mislabelled or misfiled or something..? I had a go at this search in my own libr...

Re: BlackArmour NAS - Detect under iTunes and DNLA

The user manual is here: http://www.seagate.com/docs/pdf/en-US/b ... ide-us.pdf

I think you will probably have to set up the NAS so that the folders you want to be visible to the network are shared. The manual tells you how to do that (eg p17 from my quick look).

Re: Random playlist rules for genres

Yeah, I said that extra tags would mean more work.

What about my other idea?

I've Soundhound and Shazam. They do more than rely on bpm I think, but now we know what you mean. I don't use last fm, so I don't know how it works.
