4 days with MediaMonkey

Post by lacaca » Mon Apr 01, 2019 9:07 pm

Please understand that this is a long post but If anyone can please help me to sync my formatted Ipod Classic 160 with MediaMonkey, I really would appreciate it so much.

I have a fully good working Ipod Classic 160GB and I have used Mediamonkey in the distant past to sync/load music album files to it (appx 70GB of mp3 files) in album folders and individual mp3 files all in one session

- have windows 7Pro and a MM Gold lifetime license MediaMonkey

- wanted to reload all my original file folders and add many additional album folders (total 18118 files 105.5GB) no playlists, no podcasts, no video…etc just albums (mp3s) and folders with mp3s in to this ipod like the last time I did it (but I don’t remember how and the MM features have changed) so I decided to begin from a formatted ipod

- have formatted the ipod using the windows format regular format (not quick format) like its just another drive.

-I have read through the many ipod related threads in this forum. I read this http://www.mediamonkey.com/sw/webhelp/f ... ibrary.htm

http://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index.p ... Tracks/4.0

-have tried many times to load/sync this ipod using Mediamonkey and tried to “save”? my music folders from my ext HD to the MM library (wherever that is?) and then tried to synchronize the ipod. Nothing happened

Not sure which instructions you linked, but these are the instructions on how to sync with Apple devices: https://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index. ... zation/4.0

Note that the current release is MediaMonkey 4.1.24: https://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewt ... f=3&t=8811 and when it comes to syncing it's best to stay up-to-date.

The basics are:
1) Make sure the files you want to sync are in the MediaMonkey Library: https://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index. ... ibrary/4.0
2) Select what should be synced, Tools > Options > Portable Device Sync, Configure the device and in The Device Profile window's Auto-Sync (--> Device) tab select what from the Library should be synced.
3) Start sync when the device is connected to your PC.
