Not prompting to import iTunes db

Post by bdb484 » Tue Aug 27, 2013 12:11 am

MM isn't prompting me to add data from my iTunes database when I add files to the library.

It had previously given me the prompt, but it didn't work. The files never came through, and MM just said it was importing from iTunes for more than 48 hours. I've since gotten the files added to MM, but now I can't get it to bring in the ratings, etc.

I found this thread from several years back (viewtopic.php?f=1&t=15745), but I can't find the file it says to edit. The path it gives doesn't exist, and Windows can't find a file called "MediaMonkey.ini" anywhere else in the system.

Any ideas how I can get that prompt back?

ini is here: http://www.mediamonkey.com/support/inde ... ticleid=17

For iTunes import see Notes: http://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index.p ... /4.0#Notes

Note that iTunes import doesn't add files to MediaMonkey, it just looks up some metadata in the iTunes on files imported (from Locations you selected in the Add/Rescan Files dialog).
