| This faq is updated frequently. It is based on questions
we receive, and on issues we excpect people have questions about.
Q: Some files shows very little information. E.g. how can
I fill in the title and artist fields?
A: MP3 files stores this kind of data on a "tag"
attached to the MP3 file. This tag can be edited by right-clicking
a title on either the "browse" or the "search"
screen, selecting "properties".
Q: Some files shows up with a green background, even if
these files are deleted from the harddisk. The green color is to
indicate that the file is accessible, right?
A: Checking the accessibility for each file every time the
use makes a request for data, would be very time-consuming, and
slow down My MP3 Organizer considerably. Instead of checking each
individual file, My MP3 Organizer looks for the the media hosting
the file. If the media is accessible, then the file is considered
available. As a solution to this, run Maintenance | validate archive
from the menu. This will clean up the archive by checking individual
Q: When I choose the "enque" command, nothing
A: The "enque" function will add files to your
mp3 player's current playlist. However, not all mp3 players (e.g
Media player) support this function. So, if you want the "enque"
function to work, you need to install a player which supports this
feature (e.g. WinAmp).
Q: When adding files to the archive I receive an error:
"Error 7022: Maximum index levels exceeded".
A: This problem was fixed in version 126.96.36.199. Download latest
version and you should be fine. Alternatively you can download
this utility and increase the "Index Page Size".
Q: After I changed the language in Windows My MP3 Organizer
won't work. I receive an error 5159 or 5092. Whats wrong?
A: My MP3 Organizer uses by default the language currently
active in Windows. Changing the language will cause the index files
to be invalid. There are two possible solutions.
Delete the current index files (that is the files ending with
.ai and .adi). These files will be automatically recreated using
the currently active language in Windows, the next time you
start My MP3 Organizer.
- Force My MP3 Organizer to use a specific (that is, the old language)
language. Open the file adslocal.cfg in Notepad and enter a value
for ANSI_CHAR_SET (e.g. ANSI_CHAR_SET=Norwegian) which corresponds
with the previous language settings in Windows.
Q: I installed My MP3 Organizer to a computer and then copied
the datafiles from a different computer, but now I get an error.
The computers have identical language settings in Windows. What's
A: In addition to language conflicts, there may also be
conflicts if the computers have different versions of Windows. Microsoft
made some changes after Windows 95/ NT 4 which will lead to incompatibility.
Basicly select one of the solutions stated in the previous question,
to take care of the problem.
Q: Winamp 3.0 refuses to play my Ogg Vorbis files. What's
A: It may be that your Ogg files contains id3 tags. While
Winamp 2.8 worked fine with id3 tags, 3.0 doesn't. Under Preferences|
Ogg Vorbis - you can set whether My MP3 Organizer should store tags
as id3 or true Ogg tags. If you want to remove id3 tags from your
files, check the download page for a
