Questions / Transfer MB From Portable USB Drive to C Drive
« on: March 06, 2022, 12:22:50 PM »
David here,  Windows 10 desktop, I've been using MB 3.4 Update 1 for about a year on a USB drive inserted into my W10 DT!  I have it set up perfectly and really put the time and effort into making it look great!  I want to download Update 2 and install on my C Drive, I then want to transfer all the files needed from my USB to the C drive to run the program from the C drive from now on.  I very worried I might mess up a setting and lose my layouts etc.  I won't be using the USB installation any more.  Can someone help me with this?  Much appreciated if possible! David N.

Mayibongwe, You have saved my Christmas Holiday!  I do appreciate your efforts and will get on the moving files this evening!  Happy Holidays, David N.

Mayibongwe - I'm glad I asked about this topic, I didn't know about MB File Organizer.  My music files are on my "H" External HD, My MB program is on a USB drive and my MB database backup files are on my "C" Drive!!  Can't remember why I put MB program on a flash drive!!  Hope this helps

I have not used this forum in 6 months but emergency has happened! My external HD (Where I keep all my music files) is going bad and I need to move my music files to a new internal SSD drive I just bought (Windows 10 DT),  Moving the files is easy but will anything happen to all my keywords, genres and comments I've added to the MB database?  I currently have the MB backup file on my "C" drive!  Thanks for any response!

Again I want to thank you for a explanation that makes complete sense!  I have used 2 Custom Tag Fields and yes they are Enumerated!  I'm starting to be able to move
around MB alot better then 2 weeks ago, getting easier to understand and really like how you can display your collection!! Tks again - DN

Questions / Using Keywords
« on: June 09, 2021, 06:59:37 PM »
Having trouble figuring out how to use  Keywords!   I have a couple of Keywords I want to start applying such as "Album Pick" "Grammy" "Record of Year" etc.
When I import an album and go to Edit keywords I enter a keyword and no problem, I can filter on it & search on that word.  However when I import another album and go to enter a keyword, the previous keyword does not appear until you enter the 1st letter of a keyword already used.  I thought a drop down list would appear with all keywords I've used so far so I can pick the one I want to use.  Should I keep a piece of paper with all keywords I've used near me for reference?
Any help is appreciated! Tks, David N.

Thanks for the input, I agree vocals does sound better.  I did forget "Duets".  Ann-Margret would kill me for leaving that out (Her Duet w Elvis in Viva Las Vegas)! DN

Newbie David here!  Been checking all my tags for a "Testing" group of about 200 albums I'm using to learn MB!  Decided to add my 1st custom tag called "Type of Artist"! I used the Enumerated Option for Defining New Tags.  Type of Artists would include Female Solo, Male Solo, Female Group, Male Group, Mixed Group.
When I click on that tag to input the data all 4 of these appear with check boxes to click.  Very nice indeed.  Did a "Filter" on that tag and worked great.
Did I use the right name for the description of the new tag?  Throw in some suggestions if you have any!  Tks for reading - DN

Questions / Genres Used for Each Album
« on: May 24, 2021, 08:59:28 PM »
What are the average as to how many genres you assign to each album  I'm trying to keep it at 1 per album but sometimes 2?  Just trying to see how others tag their metadata!! Tks, Newbie David

Senior newbie David here.  Downloaded MB yesterday, pulled my hair out for the 1st 2 hours but really starting to settle into the program.  I don't use the player at all and all my files already have tags (Use Tagscan Tagging Software). I wanted this program for the ability of different views, lay outs & such of all my album covers and MB seems too do it all (See Attachment)!!https://imgur.com/syQcpWPhttps://i.imgur.com/syQcpWP.jpg I'm going to Paypal now to make a small donation.  Thanks to all for their efforts, David

Thank you so much!  I hate to download software, work on it for a while and find out it's not what I need.  I just moved a folder of 200 albums to an external drive and will now download MB and try it!  Thanks again!!! David
