Hi all - looking for some help.
I have set up syncing to my SD card and all is well, but when I try and import the playlists into BlackEx player on my Samsung phone, it says "Failed to import cannot read the file" followed by "try a different file import manager" - have followed the advice from Blackplayer but to no avail.
Does anyone else have this issue?


Figure out how to auto export playlists with Unix paths.
Now I just point to the folder they are copied to on the NAS and play my playlists from there.
MB is amazing!

I have my library on a PC and the files on a Synology NAS.
I have a Chromescast with Google TV in another room.
I would like to cast and play music from the MB library on the PC to my Chromecast with Google TV via Kodi (or another app if recommended).

Not real sure what I am doing, but I have the DLNA plugin installed in MB on the PC and I tried to add MB via a UPnP share in Kodi. Also tried NFS and SMB, none of these can see the MB library.
Does anyone know how to do this?


Seems a File rescan did the trick.
would be nice to know what the cause is and fix it though.

I am using version 3.4.7805
Only installed it late last week.

I think you missed the part when I said it was random.
If i remove the library and re-add it a few others will have the same problem but the original ones won't.
As Steven requested I have provided sample files. Hopefully he'll take a look as this is very random.

I would but it's a big job to remove 20,000 comment tags and then be sure I can restore them successfully.

All my files have \\ in the comments. It from when I stored the library in iTunes to give me a quick reference to the path.
I would expect them all to not work if that was the issue.

Been looking at this for a few days now.
I have forced a full rescan of all files beofre and after editing the tags in both MP3Tag and windows Explorer;
Uninstalled and reinstalled MB a couple of times;
Removed and re-added the library, the forced another rescan;
Edited the tags in MP3Tag, closed MP3Tag then removed and re-added the library in MB.

I still get the same result and it's not always the same files.
The one common thing is when I look at the file properties in windows the tags are there and in the MP3Tag they are there, but not seen in MB.

Here's a link to the file....

Hi Steven
Doesn't say corrupt, just says no tags. See comparing screenshots of MP3Tag, Windows File Explorer and MB for the example.
I have a tonne of these showing OK in MP3Tag and Windows 10 but not MB.
Out of interest, does the MB database need to sync with meta data on the files or is it a live call that should show any tags that are added in MP3Tag immediately?

I have quite a few tracks where the Artist and Album Artist tags can be seen in Mp3Tag, iTunes and also the Details property in Windows Explorer, however, the are not showing in MB.

Interestingly, when I try and manually edit the tag detail and click Save in MB, the detail is not saved.

I have compared permissions for the files with others that work fine and also the parent folders. The permissions are exactly the same and I have also reapplied in re-inherited the same permissions a few times to try fix it. I have also checked they are not read-only.

Any ideas?
