Thread: Questions of moving data files

    Default Questions of moving data files

    Hi,
    Just moved from Mac to Windows and am on the trial version, will be purchasing it during next week as it does everything I want

    I do have a couple of queries, hope someone can help

    1)
    As I have just moved from a Mac my external drive is not compatible with Windows, so I am copying some of the files over to the new PC (unfortunately I don't have the space to copy everything)
    When I get a new external drive, how do I copy my files so that I keep the ratings/play counts for the movies, if I just move them in explorer will Mezzmo think they are new files and re add them or recognise they have moved location? (saw a help document on moving database but don't think this is the same)

    2)
    I have lots of daily TV shows on my Mac, so was trying to just use shared folders to access this data (until I get the new drive above)
    I have shared the folder on the Mac and added the folder in Mezzmo, all the files appear and look perfect (all avi files) in the desktop app.
    However when I try to play them on my Samsung BD-E6100 I get a message that the file format is not supported on my TV
    The files are fine, if I copy them locally they work fine, if I transcode them they work fine
    Am I expected to much here, with data moving between 2 computers and then to the TV?
    This is only a minor inconvenience as I can easily force transcode everything new, but wondering if the above should work

    Hi,
    for issue 1) please http://www.mezzmo.com/wiki/doku.php?id=maintenance_tools&s[]=maintenance&s[]=tools for the maintenance tools to change the path in the database.

    For issue 2) please see http://www.mezzmo.com/wiki/doku.php?...ss_permissions as it will likely be an issue with permissions when reading the files from the mac.
