How to transfer media disk to new installation ?
« on: March 13, 2008, 08:27:32 am »
Hi,

I have a disk full of media files that I used under 704 (it was autodetected and I let it create directories...). Now I'd like to plug this disk to new, fresh 710B4 installation.

Is it safe to let 710 to detect it and let it create directories or will it detect that media is already there ?

What is correct procedure in this case ?

Thanks in advance,

regards,

Bulek.

Yes it is in our experience safe to let 0710 autodetect the drive and then use the LinuxMCE files structure. If the media was previously scanned by an 0704 system you may find that some id3 data has got duplicated though.

I agree with Andrew. I had exactly as he described when I did the beta4 install.
