    Hello,
    I am working on the next version of my car software. Now I am begining to right the configuration utility for it. Anyways all this does right now is Synchronizes a database file, from a location that you give it. It also parses the id3 tags for this info, and extracts the album art from the id3 tag(if you have this embedded... MusicMatch does this.). Throw a few directories at it, and let me know if it works or not...

    Thanks,
    Quincy

            it seems to work, but I don't really know what to do with it,, I viewed the "MusicDB.mdb" file using wordpad.exe, and found lots of music, of which I assume is what came with the file I downloaded, but I found nothing that showed my music

              Yeah, don't know why Access allocates this much space. It compresses to pretty much nothing. I guess I could compress/decompress this as I use it, but I figure what is 14 MBs..

              If you point it to your music collection by hitting the browse button... then hit "Sync. Now" it should add your music to the MusicDB.mdb file. This is the file that I use in my program for DB access for playlist, etc. Also if you have album art in your tags, it will extract this to the folder where the .mp3 that contained it was...

                Worked fine for me.. Threw about 800 files at it, with a bunch of sub dirs. Looked in the access database as well. It correctly sorted out all the albums, artists, and tracks. Looks good. Fairly quick as well.

                Any software to play the music now

                Good job

                    Few words: "MusicMatch SuperTagging". This will straigten up your tags in no time, and add the album art to your files. Also, MercuryX should be able to use this file all the same, but I will have a totally new version coming out pretty soon... TONS better than that preview.

                    Yes... very soon. Got a few bugs to work out, and finish up this configuration utility. I also need to make the Skin Designer.... I will release some pics soon.

                        Yeah, that preview release was kind of thrown together... Will have a much better one out pretty soon. Out of curiosity, what did not work on the MercuryX preview?

                          Is this program still alive?

                          Looks nice, would love to try it out.

                            You can compact the database in about 6 lines of code, I'll post it up here later.

                              ... or compact it from Access

                              Tools --> Database Utilities -> Compact and Repair database.

                              The problem is that when you delete rows/tables, the space is not reclaimed by Access until you do Compact and Repair either by menu or programatically.
