Questions / list on left (music, playlists, etc, under MUSIC tab) disappear
« on: December 21, 2016, 10:35:46 PM »
help, newbie, trying to figure out how to keep the normal left sided list.

had a MUSIC title at top, and in that left column, had MUSIC, PLAYLISTS, all the playlists, etd.
ALSO had the virtual devices at bottm
I was working with my phone, and upon restarting musicbee, the MUSIC title now has just ARTISTS in the left column.
I cannot seem to get back the list that was there
any help appreciated


QUESTION on EXACT DUPLICATE ENTRIES, how to find, and remove,
VERSUS duplicate songs that may exist as same name, BUT different file paths, different music albumns

playlist has

Track-01   from John Smith    c:\music\JohnSmith\Track01.mp3
entered twice

Track-01  from JOhn Smith      c:\music\JohnSmith\Track01.mp3
Track-01  from  Joe Schmoe   c:\Music\JoeSchmoe\Track01.mp3

HOw to find the FIRST example, the exact matches, so I can remove them?

when I do the DUPLICATE finder, it finds all occurrences, of Track-01, and they may not be duplicates;  I know I have to go through these one by one

BUT, i want to clean up the stuff that fits the FIRST example, in some easy way, out of all my playlists


Questions / detect songs that are in multiple playlists?
« on: December 05, 2016, 02:02:35 PM »
is there any way to select a song, an MP3 file, and determine which playlists it resides in

I have some .WMA files, I am converting them to .MP3.
I know these files may exist in multiple playlists, and I want to make sure that I update those playlists to reflect the .MP3 files instead of the .WMA files.

but I can't figure out which playlists the  File-music.WMA may exist in, so I can then edit those playlists once I add the .MP3 files to MusicBee


Portable Devices / ipod classic (ver 1.x software), do I NEED iTunes?
« on: December 03, 2016, 07:08:26 PM »
i read the thread on musicbee and older ipod classic;
since I have an older version of the ipod software on the ipod, do I  NEED to use iTunes to re-format it?
I haven't used i'tunes for many years, just kept same music on machine, and it's one less piece of software i'd need to install

Questions / Synchronization fail, repeatedly, cannot see error message
« on: December 02, 2016, 02:27:34 PM »

See attached
SAmsung galaxy S7, 60 g of music to sync.  I've been working on this for 5 hours plus.  PART of issue is USB connection, and MusicBee not seeing device.  That is a separate topic

CURRENT issue is Sync Failing.
I HAVE gotten 95+ % of music sync'ed.  But, here are 28 songs that WILL NOT sync, and theere is a message about Year, Month...., and I CNNOT read the rest of the error, AND in the sync failed window, it has frozen, and cannot highlight over individual failed song to see what the problem is.

AND, also, the SYNC (first image) has frozen at copying the Playlist, will not progress to copy the playlist over

Any help with this is appreciated

Questions / export subset of my music files
« on: November 22, 2016, 04:26:37 PM »
I have several playlists.
I have my music in d:\NickMusic\etc-etc

I want to export the music that is in three of the 10 playlists.
I see that I can export it and define the folders as AUTHOR-ALBUM-SONG-etc

BUT, I would like to export the music, in the SAME folder/subfolder structure as the original music.

How to select my music, using the playlist as the selection, but keep my original folder structure?
