Audio Tab Empty In Media Browser


Stingworm

Question

My media browser does not show any audio files, the list is empty. Any clues how to fix this?

My iTunes data is stored on an external disk. But this is the same case for iPhoto, and the media browser does list my photos fine.

All other tabs in the media browser work as expected.

 

Latest Toast 11, Mac OS 10.6.8.

 

Thanks for help.

The only thing that appears in the Audio tab of the Media Browser is the iTunes Library. Unfortunately it needs to be located in its default place for Toast to see it. I don't know a workaround.

 

However, you can drag playlists directly from the iTunes playlist bar to Toast and it will take the tracks in the order they are in the playlist. That's better than the media browser because with it Toast resorts the tracks in alphanumeric order. If you are copying over only one track I believe it still needs to be in a playlist before it can be copied directly from iTunes to Toast.

 

You also can access the tracks where they are located in the Finder by using the Data tab in the Toast media browser. There also is a search box there which is handy when you know the track name.

Thanks for the tip!

This helped me to create a workaround for the iTunes dilemma: Just put an alias to the actual "iTunes" folder in ~/Music/. Toast is able to resolve the alias, and lists all the playlists (as you said).

 

Still, the audio media browser is rather rudimentary, if it doesn't even show other files from the "Music" folder at least. Practically though, I'd think most people have their music in iTunes.
