Re: Any Way to Avoid Wireless and USB Sync SOLVED

LOL ..... it is all crystal clear now including all my previous posts. The root cause is MMA and Android cannot handle even a single special character or non-English character in the filename of any file that gets pushed to an android device. Even one file getting pushed with these characters destab...

Re: Any Way to Avoid Wireless and USB Sync

OK .... now that I have a working phone here are some more observations. Most of what I wrote before was related to my phones memory failing. Any Chinese or other language character that gets put into an actual file or directory name during sync results in an unrecoverable mess. This has been a issu...

Re: Any Way to Avoid Wireless and USB Sync

All I can say is that on win10 I couldn't get a clean sync until all special characters were removed and I tried everything. A perfect sync is defined by syncing an entire library of 10,000 tracks and having Android catalog it in one pass without stalling even once AND having all the album art show ...

Re: Any Way to Avoid Wireless and USB Sync

You on win10? UPDATE: There can be no special charcters of any kind in any field for sync to work reliably FYI I've got a lot of artists with characters in their name fields and am not seeing the same types of sync problems. Example... http://i.imgs.fyi/img/hni.png Album names, too, come to think of...

Re: Potential Bug: A colon or period in an key field is bad

Got rid of all of the special characters from every field and finally got a perfect sync .... No stalling and aborting when Android is cataloguing and no missing album art in the Album Artist view tab. Used only SD card reader sync on PC and no wireless .... I will never touch that again Finally....

Re: Potential Bug: A colon or period in an key field is bad

Nevermind .... after about 5 stable proper syncs MMA just decided to sync another 1022 tracks for no reason .... they are already there. Did an advanced search for track titles that contain a period, colon or / = 1072 tracks = there must be a few other characters MMA doesn't like There can be NO spe...

Potential Bug: A colon or period in an key field is bad

Win 10 latest everything Having a colon or a period in the any database key field name in MMW messes up syncing to an SD card in the PC resulting an a partial sync that is messed up. Syncing after with wireless will eventually get all the tracks there but MMA will be a mess permanently as album cove...

Re: Any Way to Avoid Wireless and USB Sync

Hi Peke I am on win10, and I figured out the commonality in all the tracks that have been giving me issues not only now but for quite a while. They all have either a colon or a period in the Album Title I am guessing MMA or MMW is parsing these symbols as operators instead of characters and this is ...

Re: Any Way to Avoid Wireless and USB Sync

In the end I just couldn't tolerate all the missing metadata and lyrics ....... so I decided to try the wireless sync after the direct SD card reader sync in PC. After getting rid of my M4As (13 of them) the tracks that wanted to transfer due to missing metadata dropped from 6000 to 1000. Synced onc...

Re: Any Way to Avoid Wireless and USB Sync

I figured out why MMA wireless sync wants to sync 6000 tracks after a perfect sync on the PC using the SD card reader. In MMA even after all the cataloging is done there are 6000 tracks without rating metadata even though on the PC that are all corrected rated. The metatdata is all messed up WRT rat...

Re: Any Way to Avoid Wireless and USB Sync

As a final note: Using the latest 16.1833 MMW build on Windows 10 ..... Wireless sync is not reliable using this technique or any technique I know of. Wireless is also 10x slower than ejecting my microSD card and syncing directly using my built in SD card reader on my laptop. However .... using the ...
