storageinfo.xml.mmw? [#10468]

Post by Demonfang Arun »

i think it's part of the new sync functions, but every usb device i have,mediamonkey makes a folder on it with that file in it. needless to say, this is unwanted. hoping there is a way to disable it.

example: H:\MediaMonkey\files\StorageInfo.xml.MMW

currently on mediamonkey 4.1.0.1617

I agree. Annoyed when I found this had been placed on my external hard drives.

It is written just on Android devices / cards, so you most probably have 'Android' folder presented on the device, right?

I have the same problem. I only noticed it recently and I'm pretty sure I wasn't affected by this 2 years ago when it was reported here. MediaMonkey creates this file on all USB devices I connect to my PC (USB flash drives, camera with SD card etc.). There is no folder called "Android" on any of these. What can I do?

Noticing this folder on my usb device for the first time since upgrading to 1736. Slightly irritating; is there a work-around for this until it's fixed?

It's not generated for me if the device is set not to show (in the tree) in Options>Portable Device Sync, and auto scan disabled for good measure. The previously created MediaMonkey folder on the device can be deleted. The folder will be re-created when the device is set to show again (when plugged in).

MediaMonkey infecting Camera data card

Post by jar5 »

While MM was playing a tune, I took the memory card out of my Sony camera and put it into my card reader.

The normal DCIM and MISC file folders come up. Inside DCIM should be all the photos I took today.

Guess what's different! There are some new and uninvited files:
- A MediaMonkey file folder containing a folder called files, containing the file StorageInfo.xml (1Kb)
- Two IND files: memstick.ind and MSTK_PRO.IND (both 0 bytes)

Clicking on the DCIM folder to get my pics, the computer brings up a folder 101MSDCRF, and inside that folder are the pictures. Initially it would not allow me access to the pictures, but a restart AND NOT STARTING UP MEDIAMONKEY allowed me to get to the picture I needed.

What is going on? Why is MediaMonkey accessing my Camera data card and putting files on it? What is MediaMonkey trying to do?

Finally, what should I do to restore the card and keep MM's paws off the card (and other locations it may have invaded) in the future? ..

Storageinfo.xml is generated on any portable device that MM can interact with that also has an "Android" folder somewhere on the device. This file is required for communication between MediaMonkey and MediaMonkey for Android.

"MEMSTICK.IND" is a file placed on a Memory Stick or media card when formatted with a Sony device such as Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP), Sony digital cameras, and other Sony devices. This file was not generated by MediaMonkey. Some Sony devices, such as digital camcorders, may create an additional file named "MSTK_PRO.IND" for Memory Stick Pro media cards. In other words, MM did not create these .IND files.


You can keep MM from interacting with your card by unchecking it in the portable device options (see Options > Portable device sync)

The USB in my case is empty and has not been anywhere near any android stuff. But it still had that XML file written to it.
