Summary0005962: Failure of auto-sync to copy updated file
DescriptionOn a d_USBMass1.dll device mapping to a HD folder via a SUBST drive:

1 In an external program, update an auto-sync listed WMA track by editing it
2 In MM, Add/Rescan it
3 Auto-sync

Expected: updated track copied to device
Observed: updated track not copied to device - old version left on device.

Note: The Last Modified of the updated track is changed even though the content is not, and mysteriously also the Last Modified of all unupdated tracks is changed:

This in Win XP SP2 + WMF 11

Workaround: first delete the track from the device.

I have reproduced this each of three times here, but I'd be grateful for confirmation.

Fixed in MM5 as you can set Local folder as Sync device.

"set Local folder as Sync device" is a workaround, not a fix.

PS Thanks for that workaround.

I see d_USBMass1.dll is now gone from the default install. So this issue should probably be set Resolution (sic) == won't fix.

Tomato tomahto ;-) The _usecase_ was fixed by supporting it in MM5 in an alternative fashion.

> The _usecase_

This _issue_ is not a use case. It is a bug.

> was fixed

If the issue is fixed, then Resolution should say fixed, not "no change required" as currently.

> by supporting it in MM5 in an alternative fashion.

Thanks for the workaround, but note it is inapplicable here given this issue is on Windows XP, and MM5 (IFAICT) does not work on that OS.
