sync is returning an error: "File not matched in MusicBee. Playcount not chan..."

Not having gotten a response from Steven yet, I decided to play around with my sync app and GoneMad. Previously, upon suggestions from those in this thread, I cleared caches and then subsequently data from both apps, neither of which fixed the issue. Today, I tried two new actions. I completely uninstalled then reinstalled the wifi sync app. And in GoneMad, I deleted then rebuilt the program's database from within the app (without clearing app data). My wifi sync app now works perfectly once again. I unfortunately did not separate those two steps before trying the sync app again between the two actions, so I can't say which of the two actions corrected the error. Anyway, I just thought I should post that the issue is fixed so that a potential remedy for anyone who may come across the issue down the road is available on record (and so that when Steven comes across this thread, he doesn't need to worry about responding).

Then you'll just have to wait for Steven to take a look at the error dump .

Ok. Thanks!

Each time you plug in the portable, does the same drive letter get applied?

Yes. Same drive letter every time.

Are you keeping MB's library file  (*.mbl) on your portable drive, or are you keeping your music collection (files) on the portable?

I suspect this has something to do with MB not finding the path...
Each time you plug in the portable, does the same drive letter get applied? And if so, then you need to make sure it's plugged in BEFORE you start MB otherwise it's not going to see it.

Both the music files and the program's library files are kept on the portable. I usually remember, but every once in a blue moon I'll forget to plug it in before loading up MusicBee. But on the rare occasion that happens, it just gives me an error message saying it can't open the library, so I close it out, plug the drive in, reopen, and everything's fine. But if that's all this error code refers to, then it shouldn't have anything to do with the wifi app not reverse syncing, because it's not the first time that has happened and I've never had problems until a couple days ago with the sync app.

If so, COPY AND PASTE it here.

Thanks for pointing that out. These were the previous two entries. I hadn't thought to go further back than the past few days, so I didn't notice these since they were a few weeks prior, but now that you point it out, I do believe these did indeed happen after my last successful sync, so they would apply after all. (These are from the desktop program, not the device's wifi app, in case that's not obvious.)

I'm not sure what all the code means, but the two files that it says it cannot find are indeed right where they should be. I keep my music library on a portable hard drive, which I occasionally forget to plug in before attempting to load MusicBee. So perhaps that's all the issue was with these errors. Or perhaps the files are corrupted?

Is there anything in MB's Error Log from the time of the error? (Help > Support > Show Error Log.) If so, please copy/paste it here. DO NOT provide a screenshot.

What about the Error Log from the WiFi app?

error log from desktop program:
1st error just says: "Copy [hard drive file path] to [device file path]"
2nd error - "The system cannot find the file specified. [file path of a temp file on my hard drive's temp folder]"
3rd error - (same as 1st, with different file paths corresponding to the respective songs)
4th error (when trying to copy a playlist) - "The requested value cannot be determined. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x802A0006)"

error log from wifi sync app:
2022-07-04: FiiO M1 Pro; 7.0; 2.0.0
07:43:05: locate: search=10.0.0., exclude==158

Is that the exact message?

What version of android are you using?

Check what permissions MusicBee has.

I would clear the app data on the Musicbee app first, do a full sync then try a reverse sync. If that fails then reset GoneMad as well.

That's the exact message as far as what I can see of it (as stated, the display reaches the edge of the screen half-way through what I obviously assume is the word "changed," so if there's more to the error message, I can't see it). I  did a Google search for the first part of the phrase and there were only 2 results, both of which led to prior messages within this board's thread.

Android is v.7.0. I don't think permissions would have been reset, I have used all of the involved devices and applications quite recently with no issues up until now. Regardless, I tried clearing the MusicBee sync app data, no luck. I then Cleaned out GoneMad as well (unfortunately, I didn't think to write down or backup all my settings, so that was fun reconfiguring it.  :-\  ). After redoing everything, I tried the forward sync through the MusicBee wifi app and it worked great. However, the reverse sync is once again giving that same error message.

In addition to forward syncing through the wifi app (again, worked perfect), I've also tried syncing some new songs via my MusicBee program (desktop version, not the app). Twice out of 3 attempts, it stalled and gave an error saying that it failed to sync one of the songs. I also tried syncing just a couple playlists and a window popped up saying "aborted" with an error message stating "Shutdown was already called on this object that owns it. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x802A0002)".

So perhaps the issue is with the main desktop program and not anything on my device? As stated in my prior message, there was a blackout in my building a couple days ago while running the program that crashed my computer (and thus the program as well), so perhaps, that corrupted something? Everything was working fine before that crash and all these problems have arisen immediately following it.

I suppose my next step is to reinstall (unless there's a repair function) the program on my desktop. Can someone please lead me through how to backup both my library (including playcounts, etc.) and the UI interface that I've customized (as well as any sync settings, etc.), assuming all that can be backed up. I think I probably could try and figure it out, but I really don't want to make any mistakes and do anything that accidentally obliterates any data or settings in my library that I've put together over the last couple years of using the program.

My reverse sync has worked perfectly since install. But suddenly, something's wrong. I randomly thought to "preview" in the Wifi Sync app prior to syncing (which I normally don't do) and everything I've listened to on my device (via GoneMad) since the last time I performed a sync is returning an error: "File not matched in MusicBee. Playcount not chan..." (the screen cuts off at that point, so I'm not sure what the error message says in its entirety). I haven't changed any files on my hard drive, I've not changed anything within MusicBee (aside from adding some new additional music to the library), and nothing on my device has been touched aside from listening to the 60+ tunes that are now giving the error.

The only thing I can think of is that there was a power blackout in my building while MusicBee was open yesterday, so the program (as well as my computer itself) got shut off without properly exiting. Maybe that glitched something? But as far as I can tell, nothing seems different in my sync settings within MusicBee. Does anyone have an idea what the problem could be and how to fix it?

I went ahead with the reverse sync and, as it had foretold, all the songs were unsuccessful with "File Not Matched" error messages. I went into the GoneMad stats file and checked the time codes against all the songs that failed to sync. Oddly, several of them had already been updated last time I did the reverse sync. The time codes were in the same order as listed in the "last updated" column in MusicBee, so I know it was trying to re-sync something it had already done and not something I've listened to a 2nd time since. And of the songs it was trying to re-sync a second time, 2 or 3 of them were out of order. There was also one song the Wifi Sync app tried to sync that I've never listed to on my device at all (I confirmed and went into GoneMad and checked and there was indeed no playcount listed). So I have no idea how that even got on the reverse sync list.

Since the failed sync attempt, I've tried syncing from MusicBee to my device (which works fine) and also have played a couple more songs on my device and tried reverse syncing again and it still glitches with new songs. I don't know what the issue is. I'd try clearing the cache if the Wifi Sync app and/or the GoneMad app, but I'm afraid what that might do. My only other thoughts is to wipe the device clean, reinstall the apps and reload my entire music library. Hopefully someone has an easier fix?

Awesome! I'll play around with it and see if I can set something up. Thanks very much!

Questions / split library to sync to 2 separate destinations
« on: August 06, 2021, 04:10:33 PM »
My device has 2 SD cards. To keep the library organized on my device, I would like to sync half of my library (alphabetically) to one card and the other half to the 2nd card. So A-M on one and N-Z on the other, rather than fill one card up with random A-Z and then all the spill-off to the 2nd card, creating a chaotic haphazard file structure on my device. The best way I have been able to figure to do this on my own is to create two separate libraries in MusicBee (one for each half of the alphabet) and sync one library to one card and the other to the 2nd. The problem is that if I want to view my entire collection on MusicBee, I have to switch back and forth between libraries and can't see everything together in one collection. Is there an easier way to specify certain syncing rules so that I can have my PC's library all together in one library on MB but have it sync to my device separately as desired?

I'll give it a try. Thanks to both of you.

MP3 uses the ID3 for tagging.
There are various versions of it and V2.3 is a popular one with wide support.
It is thinkable that GoneMad player doesn't support non-standard tags and/or non V2.3 tags.
Maybe some file contain a mixture of 2.1 and 2.3 or even 2.4 etc.

Just take 2 files, 1 you know to transfer correct and one who don't.
Sync using the force option.

You might also try the tag inspector of MB and check what is inside, probably tells you about the YD3 versions as well

I took a look at one of the "bad" files and it had tags for the same categories (genre, artist, etc) listed under both ID3v1 and ID3v2. The ID3v2 tags were what correctly shows in MB before I sync it to my device. But the ID3v1 tags, which were incomplete and/or undefined, are what are actually getting synced. Experimenting, I used MB to convert the old file to a new copy (albeit, from mp3 to a duplicate mp3 of the same bitrate) and synced the new copy. The new copy did indeed transfer the ID3v2 tags this time instead, as I had hoped for. So that seems to have solved the problem. However, re-ripping or converting half of my entire library will be quite the undertaking. I tried checkmarking the "force the use of ID3 v2.3 tags for saving MP3 files" in the MB settings, hoping that would force the sync to use the ID3v2 tags, but no luck. Is there any other workaround I can use other than re-ripping my entire library?

No that's not it (unless the storage's name changed in the process). You were in the device settings in Musicbee adjusting things (per your other thread) and changed something there. Naming template, artwork storage, lyric storage, volume leveling or the like.

There are only two reasons that an already-synched file would resync. One is that the resulting file will need to be changed on the device to match your settings in Musicbee for the device .  The other is that the file changed more recently on your computer than the last time you synched it.  Since you're saying it's not the second, it has to be the first.

Thanks. Though the info discussed in my other thread was prior to the two back-to-back syncs in question here. And to my knowledge, I don't think I've done anything with my settings between that time, but it's entirely possible I could have done something to the settings without realizing it.

Long story short when you connect your device make sure you can see the music files in windows explorer as if your computer can't see them musicbee can't either and will assume the folder is empty.

I've only been using the WiFi sync and even when I do connect my device to my PC to recharge, the computer recognizes everything in windows explorer (except for when the SD card slot had dismounted itself). Maybe having that dismount occur while the device was connected to the PC tweaked something? Who knows.

Whatever the case, my syncing issue is on hold until I get this hardware issue with the SD card dismounting itself resolved. No point in transferring a library to a card that can't be read. Really a bummer to have a defective sd card drive fresh out of the box. Hopefully once everything is working smooth and I have finalized all my tweaking of the settings things will work as expected. If not, I guess I'll be back here asking for help again!  ;)

No obviously that is not supposed to happen.

If it's literally every single file, then you changed something in the device settings (naming template, artwork storage option, lyric storage option, etc.) that would affect every file.

I edited tag info on my device for just a couple of the tracks, but that's it. Certainly not the whole library.

One thing that did affect my entire library was that the SD Card that the files are stored on has randomly unmounted itself a couple times (seems to be a device glitch, which I'm waiting for a reply about from FiiO tech support). Once I remounted it, all the files were back in their original locations and otherwise unaltered. Could that be what's responsible?

Portable Devices / entire library is copied every time I sync
« on: July 19, 2021, 11:54:53 PM »
I'm new to MB. It was my understanding that only files with changed file size or time codes would re-sync. I just changed the tag info in one file. I have not touched anything else in my library aside from that one file since my last time syncing (which was my first time to sync to my device -- it's a new device). However, the sync process is re-copying over my entire music library. Is this normal? I can't go through several hours of syncing (it's a large library) every time I want to add or change just a couple files. Is there a setting I need to adjust to only transfer altered files? I'm using the MB WiFi Sync app if that matters.
