Rating Settings Change Automatically

Post by hyfanious »

I have an odd problem with rating section in guayadege
As I concern sometimes its settings changes automatically
I set 90s music files rating settings, buft after a rescanning of whole library most of them are gone, such as I have only 31 music files with rating settings remained, and other files that mentioned above have no ratting.

If the rating settings was set before the change in guayadeque it was not saved into the file. It will be saved in the next rating or playcount update.
If you rescan the library it will not read the *unsaved* ratings. I guess this is what is happening. Let me know if its not the case.

Thanks for your help

I think what anonbeat means is that not long ago there was an update to guayadeque that let you save ratings and playcounts to the files. You have to set this in preferences. I don't think you need to play the file for the rating to be saved, but I might be wrong.

What I mean is that the files that had the ratings already set when this change was introduced dont have the ratings saved. It will be saved in the next update. When its played or when you set the ratings again.

If you want to be sure you will need to set the ratings again.

let me be more clear
I set my ratings and then transfer musics that have 5 and 4 stars to my portable music player
after some times I reduce some stars of some of these files, increase some others, delete low scored files and transfer new ones that have high scores.
so I need my rating be precise and saved precisely.

- if you give a rating to a song this is saved to the file (if this is set in Preferences). If you change the rating the change is saved too.

-All standard metadata (genre, artist, etc.) is always saved to the file. You edit this information with the Song/tag editor.

-Guayadeque does NOT synchronize between portable device and your main library. If you change ratings in one place it doesn't change in the other.

Does this information help?
