    Medialaunch won't load USB

    Hey guys,
    I'm having some issues getting medialaunch to work properly. I've essentially copied the code from the example skin, but used my own graphics to make a custom sourceselect.skin. I have a button on my audio_player skin that loads this skin and creates a list for the drives.

    This part is working okay. However, if I try to load anything from the list it does nothing and just exits back to the audio_player skin as though I had never opened sourceselect.skin in the first place. I'm using the most recent version of RR (aug 2011), and am running windows 7 32-bit. The interesting part is that I did have this working several months back with a different version of RR and using the default ml.skin that's included with the app. I don't know if somethings been messed up since. Im also using the elite lite skin. Any help would be appreciated. Here's my code in case you can spot a problem:

    Yeah. I've tried using the ml.skin and even looked into a couple other skin files that have been created over the years for medialaunch. They all use the exact same button code that I have in my sourceselect, and all give me the same problem when used with my current skin, elite lite. I get the list showing fine, click the button to load the selected source, but it doesn't do anything but revert me to the audio_player skin (as coded in medialaunch ini) without changing the playlist or anything.

    Is there any newer methods out there to acheive what I'm after that don't use medialaunch? I'm looking to have a button on my audio_player skin that would list avialable USB drives from which I could select one and have the files broswable within the library. I'd then have a separate button on the audio_player skin that would allow me to set/reset the library back to my normal music folder on the c: drive.

    there is a PI, called USBMon, this PI can list all youre usb drives, and also gives you some events, on arrival and removal, you can safely remove youre usb drives from the PI. give it a try. and to browse those usb drives, you can use a simple combination of a DL and SD, really simple, im sure carputer1( ) can help you out. if im not around.

    Thanks El Camino! I've read about that utility in a couple threads as I was searching for answers to my current issue with medialaunch. The only thing is as you mentioned, it doesn't change the audio library or save the old playlist or even change the current playlist as medialaunch does. If there's a way to obtain a similar effect using DL and SD as you describe, I'd definitely need some help with that as I'm not familiar with the way the lists and stuff work within RR.

    NP, heres a quick guide.

    Add this line to youre ExecTBL ,

    Code:
    "*USBMON_ONARRIVAL","Load;audio_browser.skin||SetPath;$USBMONLETTER$"
    what this will do is, switch to audio browser screen, when a usb drive is inserted, and will force RR to show youre drives content. as easy as that.
    music can be loaded normally,

    if you want to save youre last playlist before loading youre music from the usb drive, is another set of cmd, but all is very possible,

    a couple of ideas are.
    save playlist using ONARRIVAL event, and load music rigth away, and use ONREMOVAL event to load youre saved playlist, but that depends on how you want to handle all this. i'll say try this first and see if you get some good results.

    Awesome. I'll give that a shot, but what if I don't want to load the USB right away. I'm assuming what you're suggesting will just automatically set the browser to the USB as soon as a USB drive is detected. Is there a way of doing things such that I can switch to USB when pushing a button in my audio_browser skin? Here's a pic of my audio_player screen so you have a better idea of what I'mtrying to do:

    yes, thats easy, instead of using the event, add the code to a button.


    Code:
    "SetPath;$USBMONLETTER$"

    or if you want to add some error trapping, use ByInd.

    Code:
    "ByInd;usbmon_connected;;SetPath;$USBMONLETTER$"
    for more info about the commands im using here, have a look to both SkinCommands.txt files, from RR and from USBMon PI.

    Hey El Camino!
    Perhaps I'm just missing something, but for some reason I can't get USBmon to work. I've downloaded and installed the plugin, and added the line you posted above to my EXEC tbl just to see if it would work, and nothing. I also noticed that usbmon doesn't show up in my list of plugins. I've added X,USBmon to my menu.skin and also ensured that .Net 3.5 is installed. Any ideas as to what's going on?
