This would be good to fix for 4.1.6

e.g. WMP handle this correctly (different SD cards in single card slot are recognized as different profile)

The easiest solution should be to store an info file to the SD cards (something like StorageInfo.xml that we use in case of Android's SD cards).

The same way uses WMP (it stores WMPInfo.xml file with the key to the root of the SD Card)

This longstanding issue is fixed in build and merged into 5.0

I wonder why don't we just add partition Serial Number to MMW like for Scanned media? and not save anything on card itself?

My SD card reader has only one SN despite the inserted SD card. Therefore we need to use the info file with generated key. The same approach uses Windows Media Player ( WMPInfo.xml file )

That is strange as it is very very rare to have Partittion SN same on all cards no matter which one you insert Are you sure that CMD "DIR" show same serial for all cards you have?

If that is the case maybe we should consider something to change in MM5 and use different criterias for locking locations in Library?

The main advantage of using the info StorageInfo.xml file approach is that it doesn't matter in which device the SD card resides. e.g. I can switch SD card synced via a card holder (with assigned drive letter) and then put the same SD card to a MTP device. Thanks to the info file it will match the profile despite the device used. I believe that this is one of the main reasons why WMP uses the same approach.

You are right I didn't consider that inserting card to device will use/pull info from file. Closing

Re-opened, as found by user here:
The storageInfo.xml is written just upon the first sync, but just setting up the profile MM5 (including name, file locations, auto-sync) doesn't create the file and thus the profile mismatch can appear.
i.e. it should be created immediately once user changes the sync settings.
