Questions / Re: Zune user switching to MB with questions

You do realize, do you not, that MB is developed by one person, who does this in his spare time and asks for nothing in return? And that the Wiki and forum is maintained by users who have taken the time to learn MB and offer suggestions to new users.

If you feel the documentation could use updating, feel free to add to the Wiki.

I do and I think it has great potential.  and when I get my head around it I will definitely be adding to it.

perhaps I came on too strong, but you have the wrong attitude about me.  but in my defense, forums are for people to share and just pointing to links and basically saying good luck youre on your own, isn't really helping with very specific questions, now is it?

I'm not going to do your homework for you, but since you have thrown down a challenge try this on for size, from the Wiki:
The two basic ways of adding tracks to a playlist are:

    Drag & drop tracks onto a playlist in the Navigator, Playlist Manager, or another tab.
    Use the Add to Playlist context menu.

So once again, I suggest you follow the links frankz posted. And this time try reading -all- the words.

nice try but I don't want to create a playlist.  so I supposed what you might be telling me is that you want me to create an album/playlist and add the songs to it.  would that be correct?

I know how forums work and forum etiquette quite well.  I have used the search function and read all of the FAQ's and visited the wiki pages.  I could spend hours and hours phrasing and rephrasing my search questions and never find an answer.  my specific questions are not answered there.  if they are I challenge you to show me.  

For example MB has taken a number of albums that it cant tag and broken all the songs out individually.  How do I combine them back into one album if it cant tag it?  if it was in Zune I would just highlight drag and drop into one album and correct the tagging.  not here.

been working at this thing all day and cant figure that one out.  I have a list going of issue that are NOT covered in the documentation.  not trying to be a problem, just trying to solve problems that I have and I suspect others as well.

I love people who respond with links that do not answer the questions I asked.  perhaps they are lazy or perhaps they don't understand the questions, who knows? 

I'll just hack my way through it.  if I decide to keep MB perhaps ill create a FAQ that actually answers questions instead of providing links that are a general overview at best.


Questions / Zune user switching to MB with questions

Zune user looking for something better and so far I like what I see.  I have been working through MuscBee for a few days and have the following questions even after reviewing the FAQs

Art Work
Sometimes album art wont be added when tagged or the art work is wrong.  How do you add art work or change it?

In my collection I already have most of the album art so I could easily add my own art.  In Zune there is an EDIT command that lets you edit tracks, art, ect.  How can these things be accomplished in MB?

Combining Music
Sometimes I have found a single track or more that show up separate from the album they are a part of.  In Zune you can just highlight drag and drop to add them to the album you want.  How do you handle this in MB?

I prefer to combine double or more CD’s into one.  For example, double album shows up as two and I prefer to just combine them.  Again, in Zune its just highlight drag and drop.  Who to do this in MB?

How to handle duplicates songs, albums

What to do when the album is tagged wrong and you know it is not correct?  It seems that MB does a pretty good job of tagging however sometimes it does get it wrong.  This probably ties into the art work above.  I know that my original tagging is correct and want to keep it, but I would like to add the album art.

I have tagged an album closed music bee then when open music bee the album isn’t tagged, lost tagging.  Is this a common problem?

Are you able to create playlist by drag and droping?  In Zune I could highlight an artist and by dragging and dropping I could add the entire artist catalog to a playlist.  Is this possible in MB or do I have to add album by album?

do you know how to import play list from Zine?

found the files and made the change and it works.  will go and try some new skins again.  thanks

thank you for the tip, however, I looked everywhere for the folder and file you suggest and cant be found.  looked under c:/program files, c/program files (64), looked under c/users ….  and could not find them.  did a search no luck.  unless you have another idea I guess I will have to remove and reinstall.
