Changing the path of a collection

Postby Angus » 11 Dec 2010, 14:01


I have reordered the structure of my music files/directories. Consequently, the paths of my collections are not correct, anymore. Is there a solution to change the path of a collection within the collection manager? Or do I have to remove the "old" collections and add the "new" ones again?

Unless you know as good SQL as playing guitar there is no other way.
All info are stored in "music.mdb"
You can open it with ms access. Password is "DontMessWithIt"

A rescan will remove the tracks and read them with a new path. The lyrics is stored within the mp3 and shouldn't be affected by this. As for the storgae-files (ie artist/album-pictures) these shouldn't be removed, I don't think I lost anything of mine when Jaangle accidentally re-setted my DB after I started it with my music-drive disconnected.

If you are brave but haven't access to Ms Access (sorry couldn't help myself) you can use freeware-app MDB Viewer Plus ( and simply edit the file-paths directly in the db. (Just remember to make backups).
