Can't Delete Selections from Music Match Library

Q: Can't Delete Selections from Music Match Library

A friend asked me to help out what I thought was a bit of a "silly" request when I came across an error I've never seen and can't seem to get around. In MM, I try to delete certain selections from his library (and I've tried several different selections) and I get the error:

"ERROR: Database fetch (mim:database:Track: <a very long bunch of letters and #'s>) = FAILED"

I haven't tried to delete the entire library b/c he wants to keep at least half of what he's got.

Anyone? Help!

Thanks much,

Preferred Solution: Can't Delete Selections from Music Match Library

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Can't Delete Selections from Music Match Library

What version of MM and does he have MM Plus? The first thing I would try is to rebuild the database. The only things that he'll lose are:

Play Count
Date Last Played
Date Last Modified
Date Added to Library
Date Last Burned
Last Burned To

Custom 1
Custom 2
Custom 3

Everything else will be rebuilt from the tags.

My bother had deleted my laptop partition files and folders when attempting to extend my C partition. All my stored partition movies were lost and could not be found in Recycle Bin. Do you know where these partition videos are? I really want to view these videos again. What can I do to rescue them? Thank you for any advice!

Hey, Luminaton03!

Sorry to hear you are experiencing such an issue.
Your data is stilll there somewhere as long as you don't overwrite it. If you save new data, it would rewrite your previous files.
I did some research for you and I found a threat that you might find helpful:

Hey guys, I am going on holiday in early June and am looking for a way to listen to music while I'm in the pool as I plan to spend a lot of time doing so.
The way I can see it is that I have two options:

Buy a waterproof case and waterproof headphones
buy a waterproof MP3 player all-in-one.
Obviously each option has it's flaws - otherwise I wouldn't be there.
Even if I buy a waterproof case how can I be sure that even though there is a waterproof case, where it contacts with waterproof earphones will be waterproof as 'waterproof' to some sellers just means rain-proof.
The problem with the all in ones like the Sony Waterproof Walkman is that they are very expensive for very little space, the 4GB alone being 50 and 8GB is 80.

Does anyone have experience in the matter, anything they can recommend, preferably I'd like to use my phone in a case for my 32GB MicroSD card, but whatever works I guess.

Cheers guys.

Hey guys, I've recently ordered a new PC and it should be here in a week. I'm a gamer and I like to write music and will finally be able to record with my new system. I'm just lacking a sound card. So basically I'm looking for a card that will be awesome for gaming and music. Any suggestions out there? I know I will need a PCI-E card. I'm looking to spend $150-200. Any help would be much appreciated

Hi I am using a transcend pen drive to transfer files between my netbook and desktop, both with XP when I delete folder from the pen drive while connected to the desktop, it shows the pen drive as empty and thereafter I "safely remove" the pendrive. however, when I insert it into the netbook, it shows the data still present. if I now re-insert it into the desktop, it shows the data again. ?? btw if I delete it when connected to the netbook, it stays deleted and does not show up again! what gives? I have emptied the recycle bin too. am wondering if there are some settings I need to change. I just got a new desktop and am transferring my data onto it from the netbook! thanks, appreciate any answers in advance!

Use any Administrator Login, insert the Pen Drive, right click the pen-drive-letter -> Properties->Security

Having dredged the internet, I came across this forum amongst the many with questions relating to cd drives working but dvd not etc, but my issue is slightly different, i think.

CDs seem to play ok, and so do DVDs, but I seem to have a problem with my laptop reading a disc with DS games on it that it used to read no problem. The discs can be used in my other half's laptop, so it is clearly a problem with my laptop.

I'd appreciate if anyone could advise where I can start to solve this problem

As a part time DJ i spend a lot of time playing the same laptop a Recording music from music in the same order so i was thinking what if i Recording music from a laptop could just sit down and record the tracks that i play Recording music from a laptop directly into one Recording music from a laptop big MP and then it would save me having to load and cue each track I use a program called ClubDJ Pro its a twin deck system with a predefined playlist i can usually just load a playlist and tell it to cross fade during the last quot X quot seconds of the song X being a set time between and seconds However i find some songs have an extended silence at the end that can when i first played them mess up the auto cross fade facility and as anyone will tell you silence is deadly when your doing DJ ing So is there a program i can use to either record directly from my program or use another PC or laptop to record onto i assume i would use the earphone out on one to the Line In socket on the other PC Laptop and then record onto that It would be good as it then means i can use different mixes of my own nbsp

Have you tried to format the drive through Disk Management? Formatting will erase everything on it. This assumes you don't still have anything on the external drive you want to save.

This opens a list of extensions.

Someone recently visited undesirable sites on our home computer and downloaded files. Today, my computer ran a chkdsk operation, where I realized it was fixing this unwanted files. I know which directory these files are under, however, being fairly new to computers, I am not sure exactly how to access these files and delete them. Are they under the Indexing Service, and if so, how do I delete them from there?

Thank you very much for any help!
 

A:How to delete orphan files?

Chkdsk usually usually fixes the errors and place damaged files in a hidden folder, in root of bootable partition.

You can open Command Prompt (right click to open as administrator) by going to Start, Programs, Accessories; then type dir /ah , it will give you list of hidden files / folders. There should be a folder named Found.000 or something similar (created by chkdsk), if so you can erase its contents by:

1. type CD foldername.here and press Enter
2. type type del *.* and press enter
3. type cd.. and press enter
4. type rd foldername.here and press enter

Once done, type exit and press enter, I hope that solves your issue.

I'm thinking that without gaming ambitions, the new Intel core i3 CPUs might meet your needs with their integrated graphics. These give pretty decent scores in
the Windows Experience Index, something like 4.9 for Areo, and 5.3 for business and gaming graphics. To the best of my knowledge, the matching H55/ H57 Intel chipset motherboards provide Fire Wire input.

You should first subscribe to Newegg's Email list, so you can grab your parts as they become available on sale.

Here is Intel's list of socket LGA1156 CPUs available at Newegg; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...=2010340343 50001157 1051749233&name=LGA 1156


And the matching integrated graphics H55/ H57 boards in the Gigabyte brand; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...01314 1070549182 107173338&name=Intel H55/H57 Be sure to pick one with 4 memory sockets. (4 out or 5 do). I have this one; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128421

Please pay no attention to the bad reviews for this product, they were all written by imbeciles claiming, "high technical ability". I don't know squat about computers, and I had one of these systems up and running perfectly, with Windows 7 installed, in about 3 hours.

In fact, I'm hoping Newegg will offer "don't know squat" as a technical ability claim option. That way, I'll be able to check, "don't know squat", and report, "it works perfectly for me, 5 stars"!

Here is a test report done on a few of these boards at Techspot; http://www.techspot.com/review/259-intel-h55-motherboard-shootout/

I have a strange experience with sounds lately I have no come background games of music sound How some different? idea why this happening or what is causing it but here it is How come some background music of games sound different? One day I was doing some light gaming on both my tower and laptop since both my computers meets the minimum requirements and while playing this game I heard some unusual sounds on both How come some background music of games sound different? my laptop and tower my laptop while playing the background music of the game seemed to be missing a couple or not few sound types in the game On my tower it sounded like it had an extra beat as if I could here that extra sound s with the background music playing I can t explain real good but to simplify this my laptop seemed to be lacking of some melody beats while my tower has it all and slightly deeper bass I turned my laptop speakers high yet no extra melody beat appeared I How come some background music of games sound different? did the same with the tower sounded the same as before but just louder I am sure I installed this game on both my computer successfully with no errors I reinstalled it again and same problem occurred I don t understand is the speakers more sensitive on the tower and giving it more variety of sounds or is the laptop speakers not so sensitive in outputting more variety of sounds Or both are wrong and it is just the matter of XP and VISTA or is it the software or drivers installed for the sounds Is something wrong with the speakers Do I need buy better ones Ones that s suppose to act normal nbsp

A:How come some background music of games sound different?

try updating your sound drivers first, then you might want to look into past problems others might have had with this games sound. Since this happened to both your computers at the same time it sounds like the problem is the game.

A simple test to see if your speakers are broke is just...play music on them. Does it sound fine? yes? then it's not your speakers

unfortunatly without knowing what game it is that you are talking about I can't really look into any problems others have had with it.

I have a Dell Latitude D630. It has an admin password for the bios. Nothing is locked except for the settings. I can't change any of the settings in the bios. It lets me boot to windows just fine though. My question is, since I don't know that admin password for the bios, if I upgrade the bios firmware, will the admin password be deleted? Since I'm flashing the bios, I would think that all the settings will be lost. Is that the case?

I am running XP/Win7 on my AMD 64 Athlon 3400+ powered Pavillion. I have an integrated Realtek AC'97 audio card and lately I've noticed that all music playback is choppy - whether it's iTunes, Windows Media Player, or Youtube. I've tried different speakers, headphones, etc., but reagrdless of the hardware I use, I still get the same problem. It sounds as if the music is being paused and then played very quickly throughout the song. I don't really notice it in Windows sound effects, but that may be because they are short in length. I notice this happening on both XP and Windows 7 and don't know why.

Please help!!!
 

A:Music Playback is Choppy

Try updating your audio and chipset driver. There could also be a program running in the background taking up to much memory or CPU cycles. If you listen to music alot you should get a dedicated sound card. You can get a really good Audigy on Ebay for under $15. Onboard audio is notoriously troublesome. Too many other things in the system can interfere with it.

Hey! My comp can play music but when I play DVDs or run .avis I only get background music and the vocal audio is so low it's almost muted. I can't figure it out. I have DivX installed and AC3Filter as well but I use WMP and Cyberlink PowerDVD, no vocals from either. Do I need codecs? How do I find out which I need?
 

A:Music Plays / No Vocals in Movies / Background Music Plays

I've been able to boost sound with the AC3Filter and get DVD vocals now through WMP but I still am not getting any vocals from my DVDs when played through my Cyberlink PowerDVD. Any suggestions? I'm sure I'm missing a codec or something but I can't figure out what. The website I used to go to to download audio codecs for WMP11 looks down for the count so I'm at a loss.

However when we try to down load to the Sylvinia it states it's a bad file type or can't download subscription. This is a plug and play device with an disc included for conversion of AVI files.

Good day forum members,

I just acquired a new BFG GTX285 OC, I am wondering if my current CPU and ram might be a bottleneck in its performance. I currently have a Q6600 and 4gb (4-4-4-12) ram, do I need to improve this in order to get the full GPU potential?

I was planning on getting a i7 920 CPU, mobo and 6gb triple channel ram by the end of the year to match the GTX285 performance. Will this be necessary at all? If so, I might need to rush this purchase to mid year.

Thanks in advance for all your suggestions and best regards.
 

A:Right CPU to match a GTX 285

The i7 is a great choice gaming-wise, and you will probably have a larger range of motherboards to choose from owing to the release of the P55 (Ibex Peak) chipset in Q3. Also, the i7 920 should have dropped in price, and you will also have other i7 CPUs to choose from.

All around, I think it is a great decision to move to an i7-based system at the end of the year.

Whenever I have inserted a cd in a drive and selected explore, I have been able to see the file type. I bought a cd, karaoke style -- for all practical purposes here -- and when I inserted the CD I only found pdf files which hold the sheet music. I always make a copy of these cds in case one becomes damaged. On two computers I was completely surprised that I could see nothing except the PDF files. Is there a way to see the music files?
 

A:Music files

Purhaps you did not buy a CD with music on it. It may be a karaoke cd that gives you sheet music to some popular songs to let them play and sing it yourself (thus the karaoke).

I cant think of anything else because if thats ALL thats on the disk then the obove situation is accurate in my opinion

Have tried other speeds without any success also tried downloading latest version of window media and closed all other applications that may have caused even a remote problem. Can anyone help or have any suggestions how to fix this problem?
 

A:Can't Burn music to cd

Is this a laptop or a desktop computer.
It seems as if your CD drive is worn out of alignment. Either the read laser or the write laser is out of whack or it is just worn out. How old is the drive?
Burners last about a year, on average... less, if used a lot. It is easier and cheaper to replace them, than to fix them.
If you are in a dusty climate, you can remove the bottom from the burner, and use Dust Off or other canned air with difluoroethane gas to clean the unit. Do not touch the laser... just blow dust out of the drive.
There are some utilities that will reset the burner on some models. Do a Gurgle search for your brand and model.

Here is the properties of one of the files.

I have sent them to my Recycle Bin by dragging them and then I would empty it seconds after, where they seem to delete successfully. They will remain gone until I restart my computer.

Is there anything I can do to get them out of there?

You might have Temporary "files waiting to be written to the disk" in explorer.

put an empty disk in the drive open my computer and double click on the CD/DVD-RW drive, if any files appear in explorer greyed out then delete them by clicking "Delete these temporary files".

if you have any open windows that are showing the contents of the drive then you should close them too. other than that then there's probably another program monitoring the drive, could be a media player that you set to monitor your Drive for playable media.

hi.. i'm a music producer... and my main tool is Reason 4 software from PropellerHeads... and i want to buy a new PC... and my dilema is the CPU..
which one do you think i should buy.. the new 45nm E8400 or the old Q6600??
the problem with Reason is that it's not biult for multi core CPUs so i guess the E8400 should do the job better... but recently i saw some tests with Reason running on a Q6600 and i was amazed...
really dunno what to do here. and my mainboard of choice is the Gigabyte G33-DS3R... hope someone could help me on this one!

thanks in advanced!!
 

A:Intel E8400 or Q6600 for music production?

To Err Is Human....To Forgive Is Not in the Nature of Computers...

Either the 8400 or the 6600 should give more than adequate performance with music files. (By "more than adequate", I mean spectacular). I don't want to overstep my knowledge here, but I'm guessing that music files don't present the same degree of difficulty as 1920 X 1200 High Def Video encoding. Which I'm sure software engineers are currently rushing to adapt applications for quad (or more), core use. Point being you couldn't go wrong with either CPU.
BIOS updating can be a tricky and risky affair. That being said, I would check which BIOS version is present in the Motherboard before making a decision on which CPU to buy. The E8400 would absolutely require a BIOS update, whereas the Q6600 might not. IMHO, the plug and play part always wins.
Then there's always plan "C": wait for a 45nm quad CPU.

I found this to be quite interesting, I have Nero 6 which is not at least 3 years old. When I use the"advanced analysis" function in "Recode" (essentially "DVDshrink") on my machine with a Pentium Dual Core E2200, task manager is telling me that BOTH cores are operating at 100%. I didn't think that this version of Nero was even written for dual core CPUs, but there you have it, clipping along at up to 1000 FPS, firing on both barrels!

Hi there, aI am new person on this forum, got a question about a external hard drive I just installed. I have a small c drive, and bought a nice 250gig external, want to tansfer most of my files on the c drive to the e drive(new external), what I need to know before I do anything, after I transfer can I go ahead and delete the files from the c drive.

Usually I do not have a dumb question, but I am doing a blank on this one. Any help would be welcome. Never used a external hard before.

Thanks Bob
 

A:Can I delete after tranfer

Once you have copied all your files over to the external drive
Go to My Computer and open the external Hard Drive and confirm all files are actually OK.

Depending on how critical your files are (for backing up) you may wish to have two backup sources ( one on external drive, one on C drive)
But normally, once confirmed OK, just delete all the non-needed files on your C drive

Hi all,

Winamp's being... temperamental, to say the least.
I have a music library of ~2000 songs which I want to get it to sync to my MP3 player. It recognizes that my player is connected to my PC just fine, but when I tell it to sync all 2000 songs in one shot the program freezes and crashes.
I really do NOT want to have to sit at my PC for hours and sync my music library 50 songs at a time. Is there a workaround for this problem or am I just going to have to bite the bullet?

Thanks,

I'm trying to build a hardcore gaming computer with my graduation money that will play all my MMO's and RPGs all through my 4 year college and hopefully a good deal afterwards. Basically, if I am going to be spending 2 grand on a rig I expect it to last twice as long as my 1000 dollar rigs which is what I usually get into.

Anyway, I picked the Q6600 over the e6850 because I was told it would be hella faster and keep me up to the latest technology and speed for quite a while.

Whats a good motherboard to match? My last motherboard I had picked out was 210 dollars so I would like the new price to be close to that, or lower. SLi compatable and it needs built in audio haha
 

A:Good match for a Q6600

I believe that EVGA is the best producer of Nvidia stuff. I would go for the top of the line SLI 680i chipset board that they put out. If you register your EVGA product it will have a lifetime warranty. Good Luck.

A:How do I run CHKDSK at startup / Delete partitions! (no OS installed!)

Remember that CHKDSK requires exclusive access to the hard drive when it runs, or it will quit, and tell you it will run when all files and folders are closed.
Remember that it can sometimes take a very long time to run, depending on the size of the hard drive, and the number of folders and files.
Note that it will not always accuratedly give information if you run CHKDSK in read only mode.

Click Start->Run->Open-> Type CMD <enter>
At the resulting Command Prompt, type chkdsk <enter> to enter read only mode.
Otherwise, type chkdsk /F <enter> to repair errors without scanning the drive.

To run CheckDisk from Windows Explorer, or from My Computer, you must MyComputer <doubleclick>
C:\ <right click>
Properties->Tools->Error Checking->Check now-> then chose from the Check Disk Options.
Select Automatically Fix the File System Errors Box, or just click <Start> to run in read only.

If /F is not selected, it will not scan for errors, nor clean up errors.

On some installs you have three days to remove or pay... or the machine will freeze. If you are using a disc which has already had multiple installs, the computer will freeze without allowing you to run. Most other installs will give you 30 days to register the product ID.

Running ChkDsk for errors will not harm anything, and may help give you usefull information about your drive.

I have had my normal Audigy2 card for years now, and it is starting to play up, like cutting out in games, and often when i'm facing someone who is talking to me I can't hear them and will have to turn to the side to hear them, things like that lol.
I was planning to upgrade the card anyway, but i'm not sure whether I should get the X-Fi Gamer or Music. I hear they are essentially the same thing, although the Gamer is the newer edition. More people swear by the Music though.

I would love some advice, as they are both available, and both basically the same price.

Sorry, i am new to some of this. Everyone i have talked to so far shuts me down because i dont know everything about it. That is why i am asking questions, so please bear with me.
I have a celeron d 352, 3.2ghz, 533mhz processor. I was looking into getting an upgrade pentium 4. I have found one that is a 3.6ghz, but has a bus speed of 800 and hyper threading. My mother board says it supports 400/533/800. Does this mean it will support this cpu, or do i have to match it with the old cpu 533?? Do i have to just interchange my memory to match the 800? Please help, i have researched and read, but everybody that asks questions seems to be ahead of this point, or already knows about it. Thanks,
 

A:Does buss speed of cpu have to match the old cpu??

It must be equal to or faster... but will run at the maximum speed of the front side bus, regardless of what speed it is otherwise capable. There are all sorts of problems that come up when you change the cpu only on a standard computer brand and model... and changing from a Celeron to a Pentium is a key one in certain brands and models. HP's, for instance, are particularly difficult. You might need to do a series of Gurgle searches to track it down.

I have tested old speakers with the OLD audio card, which is still installed above my new Audiphile one. Old speakers work PERFECTLY, so it is NOT the CPU or PC. It is either the SPEAKERS or the AUDIOPHILE sound card. How do I find out? I have no other speakers that connect to the Audiophile card, and I have no other PC with a card that can test the speakers.

Anyone have an educated decision? A popping noise every 10 seconds or so, on and off, sometimes never happens...audiocard most likely, right? The speakers were bought brand new, M-Audio Studio Pro 3's. They seem just fine.

Any ideas?

I recently installed a new hard drive in my computer. It seemed as if I was doing everything well. I followed all of the Steps on the installation CD. Now after the Installation of the hard drive I am unable to enter into the Windows XP OS. It says to press ctrl, alt, Delete to restart. When I restart my computer I can either press Delete to go to the the Bios, CMOS settings or go back to the screen where it says press ctrl, alt delete to restart.

What should I do?

Does anybody know an application that exists that will alow me to load a music file into it and in return it will display detailed information about the file.

Any help would be great,

Thanks!
 

A:need help finding info on my music

In Windows XP, you can right click on the file and select properties. Click the summary tab, then click advanced.

In Windows Vista, the info will appear at the bottom of the explorer window.
