Question

Windows XP and Musicmatch

I have been using Windows XP and Musicmatch for many years and it has been a pleasure to work with. I only wish I had left a working system alone instead of messing with changes in computer hardware. Now I've got Windows XP up and running again albeit with a couple of dimples on its face. But Musicmatch refuses to behave. I have downloaded as many versions as I could find before, and the latest version 10xxxx I found has been working flawlessly. But that was 'yesterday', I've spent the whole day today with little success. i can start the program, but am unable to install my music files. Anyone here with experience that might want to offer some help? I hope and pray for help!

Re: music match

Can you tell what you mean with "install music files". I just put them in a folder and use a media player (that's Windows Media Player in my case) to play it.

Installing files to MusicMatch

With MusicMatch, we have the "Check Watch Folders", where you type the name of folders where you want MMJB to fetch new files to add to the library. You can add the entire library to the playlist that shows in the playlist window. That's a small window that shows four or five titles at a time. You can have as many playlists as you want, shuffle them, save them, view and manipulate them in a window for that purpose. Back in the days when MMJB was marketed, you could use it to shop for music to add to the library. I see it as the best of its kind, but I don't think it was very profitable. I'm only using it for music from the late 1920's to 1950's. IMHO, with respect to user-friendliness and ease of use it is superior to MediaMonkey, but not as handy for ripping CD's.
