Hello all ...
Sorry for the long post, but I need to explain ...
Been using BRU for quite some time on my computer. Love it for my music and books.
I recently put my files on an external drive on my home network for access by my wife on her computer.
I am now having trouble using BRU to rename the .mp3 files on that drive.
I've been looking in the forum and I am not finding a definitive answer. I thought I saw somewhere that I couldn't access network drives.
Then I think I saw something about adding a network location pointing to the networked external drive in Windows Explorer and then it will show up when you open BRU.
I did that, and I could swear that I did some renaming on the network drive, as I remember whooping, yes, it works!
But that was last week, and I sometimes can't remember past a few days ago. Getting old is the pits!
Last week I had to rebuild my computer due to a browser hijacker.
Now, after rebuilding, I can't get BRU to work on my network drive.
The file tree shows all the folders on the network drive (based on the Network Connection done in WinExplorer), but I cannot get the .mp3 files to show up.
I have the same set of files on my C:Drive and BRU works just fine there.
It's like there is a filter that is set or needs to be set or taken off? I currently have an '*' in the Selection box (12). I have tried *.mp3, *.flac, etc.
I know there is a lot of stuff that can be entered on the main BRU window, but as I understand it, you only need to enter what you want to change. So, based on previous experience, I have not entered anything, and my files show up. Then I can rename, counter, etc.
So, any thoughts? Can renaming on a network drive be done or not? I don't want to spend any more time on it if it can't be done.
If there is a post(s) in the forum that discusses this, could someone please point me to it.
Thanks in advance ...
