How does one transfer music from a MTP device to the Music folder? Or upload music from the MTP device to programs such as RhythmBox, Banshee, etc.? I have tried using Gnomad2 to no avail and I have exhausted my self searching the online Ubuntu community forums and doing searches on search engines regarding this subject reading through countless article of users trying to get Linux system to recognize or mount their MTP devices.
My system does recognize and mount my MTP device (Creative Zen Micro) and the Music Players (RhythmBox, Banshee, Amarok, VLC, XBMC) all access and play the music without any problems. I just want to transfer or copy the music from my MTP device to my system.
OS: ubuntu10.04 LTS running on latest oracle virtualbox. This works: I have opened a ubuntu one account. And I can log into that account. But I have to do so by: clicking 'ubuntu one' in top bar, and click 'account' in prompt that appears. Shouldn't log in take place automatically? Being logged in I'm able to make new folders. And appearently able to enter them (they are empty I quess) If I try to upload a file clicking 'upload file' in ubuntu one. A prompt appears and I choose the file to upload and click 'continue'. The prompt says "uploading" but nothing happens. If I choose a document folder and click 'mouse click right'. And then click 'sync with ubuntu one'. It prompts that it syncs the folders. But nothing happens.
I pushed the browse button and selected the first picture, but I was unable to select all of the pictures. This happened again on an email attempt to do the same thing.
In the gnome environment, I am able to select the first then hold down shift, and select the last pic and all the ones in between will be selected. I expected this behavior when selecting for upload, but it didn't happen. I had to select each one, one at a time and upload each one.
I tried making a folder to upload the whole folder and that would not select at all.
I have set up a very basic apache server to host my own website (have not set up sql or database or php yet) and I am trying to find out how to fpt or copy my website. I am creating the site in windows and need to know how to transfer it to the server, preferably into the /var/www folder directly.
I've been building my digital music collection for some time and used to house it on a local drive with no quality issues. A while back I built myself a file server using ubuntu and mdadm in a raid1 configuration to protect against potential drive failure. I link my iTunes library to the music files via a samba share and everything works great on the surface. I've started to notice that random songs are becoming corrupted with pops clicks and silent pauses. I'll even re-download an album and notice that it's corrupted a few weeks later. Now I'm at a loss to what is causing this issue; I ignored it at first but it seems to be getting worse and more widespread as time goes on.
Do you think this could be caused by mdadm? It reports that all is fine via 'cat /process/mdstat' but I wouldn't know where to look or what to look for if there were syncing issues. The other possibility is that I have iTunes set to keep my music folder organized for me, but I've never heard of it actually corrupting the files it shuffles around. The bottom line is that my library is getting crappier as time goes on and I cannot stand for that!
Whenever I used to start up a window would open asking me for my password. No problem. One day I clicked cancel and it has never come up again, when i start up the ubuntu one logo switches to updating folders for a bit and then it switches to the default but with a little red x on it. I haven't been able to get it to connect. I can place files into the folder on my computer but they don't show in my ubuntu one account folder also. Also I heard, that soon we'd be able to upload folders instead of file by file is this true?
Firefox grays out and doesn't unfreeze until the entire upload is complete.I can't do anything else on the internet while this is happening.This didn't bother me until now, because I need to upload some pretty high quality pictures to Flickr, and it takes about fifteen or twenty minutes to do so.I'd like if the pictures could simply upload in the background while I do other stuff, instead of completely freezing my internet usage in the process.I don't have a problem downloading files quietly in the background not even large files so why can't I upload files without freezing everything up? Is this normal, or is there a fix for this?
I've got several large files sitting in my linux hosted account that I need to upload to my S3 account. I dont want to download them first and then upload it into S3. Is there any way I can "upload" it via the linux command line environment? Or access it via a website working with lynx?
I am looking for a file sharing program to install on my dedicated server that will allow me to upload large MP3 files and allow my clients to download them. these files are recordings of counseling sessions for families who are seeking help for their children.
What I am looking for is similar to the system this company uses [URL].
On 9.04 using rythymbox i had no dramas upgraded to 9.10 and started trying different music players, songbird being the latest i copied my family's entire cd collection - about 250 cd's i have added another 150 album's by download, so about 400 albums but Rbox tells me i have 600 albums and 16000 tracks!!!!!!! Some of my music file have multiplied so much so that some albums have 8 copies of each track mp3 and .ogg in equal numbers i have searched preference setttings in all music players but find nothing what i want to know is, Is there a program that gets rid of the duplicates i tried songbird to get rid of ghost tracks and duplicates but it just freezes, i even left it "running" or frozen or whatever for 3 days
I have a music archive on several computers, from time to time do I add, remove or change the archive on one computer. To keep this changes will I have to copy the new version of the music archive to all the other computers.
is there a program that can sync the music files. Let say that I update the info in one music file, then will the sync program notice the newer version and replace the old file with the new files on all the other computers.
I guess I would need a dedicated server for this where all changes are stored with some kind of version number of the music archive. Since not having a server would make everything (I guess) much more complicated. All computers would have to communicate with each other to check for a new version instead of only communicate with one computer (the server).
I can now get Ripit to run, but right after its got the artist and track data and displayed it, it then says it can't write to the error log on my output path.However ripping and encoding of the music seems to happen as it goes through all the tracks, but at the end the same error message appears and I get a message saying the time to rip = 0 and the time to encode = 0. When I look at the output directory there's nothing there.For the output directory I initially had the file output as /home/westers/music - that's my username and I have the directory music created, but I still got the error message.
I then thought the problem was because /home/westers/music is setup to use a USB attached hard drive as it's disk drive and so I should actually be pointing the output to this drive because the drive is mounted to /home/westers/music. When I change the output to /dev/sdb (the hard drive name) I still get the same error message.I know the drive has mounted properly because I can see it has on the desktop.fpermission is set as the default, although I can't find any info about what the default options actually mean (google, the man page and the readme don't say what the options mean).So how can I get my music to be saved to the usb hard drive such that /home/westers/music can see it?I'm ripping the music to a flac file if that makes any difference.
I have 64-bit ubuntu 9.10 server edition running in a media server for my house. But over the last few months I've discovered that its loosing files! Its not all files, Just music. It will lose anywhere from about half an album the every song in the folder, leaving the artwork if it was in there. At first i thought It was iTunes reorganizing my files, but thats not the case, as i've looked around for them, and told iTunes pretty much to stop messing with my file locations. My boss who's pretty Linux savvy says that 9.10 is really buggy. I've tried doing updates (sudo apt-get update/upgrade) but its still losing music.
how I can shuffle my MP3 files before I drag them on to my player? My little D-Wave MP3/4 player does not shuffle songs. This can be a little boring. I use Banshee to drag and drop songs to it without any problems and Banshee will play the tracks randomly.
I did see a thread on the Forum recently which looked like it would shuffle the files in a directory but I have not been able to find it again.
I'm having problems with my creative zen & linux. The problem is, I can't find the music files I have transfered to the mp3-player. But when I connect the mp3 to my laptop the files is there! When I'll try to find the music files in the mp3-player (disconnected from the laptop), I can't find them.
Does anyone know where the files downloaded from the Ubuntu One Music Store are stored?They are not in the Music folder or anywhere else in my home folder that I can determine, yet Rhythmbox sees them. I noticed that in the Rhythmbox preferences I can no longer specify one specific folder as a watch folder (it defaults back to "Multiple Locations Set"). I'd like to transfer the files I bought to a flash drive, but cannot find them.
IS there a program in ubuntu that extracts individual songs from album and label and tags them. i have just got 200 GB of music from a friend, but the albums are 1 full Mp3 file so it just runs right thru each song non stop. no individual song files what program can i use to convert album into individual song files and keep them together in a album. i found one that runs on windoze, but was wantiing to know if ubuntu has one. the windoze one is called Alba Extractor
I managed to very stupidly (and avoidably) overwrite the hard drive that contained all my stuff--music, photos, home videos from the 80's that were painstakingly converted to digital movies, etc.After running Photorec and recovering much of the data to another disk, I'd like to be able to rename the music files using whatever exif data/tags are available.
I got around 6,000 songs that I copied from my ipod to my external hard drive through rhythmbox, but for some reason it didn't copy over any extensions (all of my music files are mp3's) so I was wondering what would be a really simple way to add the extension to all the files in the music folder. My folders are setup like /Music/Artist/Album/song.mp3 (well right now there is no .mp3 but ya get the point
I am running FC13 (Goddard) on my netbook, and it's impossible to play my mp3 files on all of the sound audio applications like totem and rhythm box because the system keeps complaining about plugins that I can't find on any repository.
