|0016336||MediaMonkey 5||Sync||public||2020-02-04 04:23||2020-10-25 14:05|
|Target Version||5.0||Fixed in Version||5.0|
|Summary||0016336: USB drive appears with incorrect drive letter name|
|Description||Some drives display with the wrong drive letter in MediaMonkey. e.g. |
1 Plug in drive
--> appears as drive F: in Windows
--> appears as drive G: in MediaMonkey > Devices and Services
I expect that this is because the drive was previously been plugged in while MediaMonkey was running, and was identified under a different drive letter at that time. Assuming that's the issue, would it make sense to display such drives in Devices and Services using their Labels instead?

OK, the problem seems to be that this kind of USB drives has no media label so MM4/MM5 uses "G:\" as the label.
I tried to test with the same kind of USB stick and when I renamed "E:\" to "G:\" manually then I see "G:\ (E:)" in MM4 and "G:\" in MM5.
Both MM4/MM5 looks strange after the renaming.
I guess that solution could be that whenever the name of the profile is just X:\ (where X is a capital letter) then we should always auto-rename it to the current drive letter after connecting.

This is really more pleasing now.
