Adding music from CDs

Post by Daesy »

Morning!

I spent yesterday ripping a load of CDs to MM (latest version) and then realised I had duplicates in my library.

I read online I should use the virtual CD, but I can't locate that anywhere in tools.

So I deleted the CD file from the library and kept the MP3 version- but is this the best way? I have 100s more CDs to copy over :lol:

VirtualCD has been removed from MediaMonkey 5, so Ripping is the method to add CD's to your MediaMonkey Library: https://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/WebHel ... om_CDs/5.0

You can catalogue, but then you won't be able to play the CD without it being inserted in the PC: https://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/WebHel ... ibrary/5.0

Thanks

In terms of not having duplicates synced to my device/ in my library, I just need to delete anything that isn't MP3? Or will that also stop me from being able to play the track without the CD inserted?

To manage duplicates: https://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/WebHel ... icates/5.0

I don't know what you've done, so I can't comment on what you should do. However you do need a physical copy on your PC of files on a CD to be able to play the CD without it being inserted in the PC.
