Ovi Suite 3 - Music library refresh problem

Hi, i am using Windows 7 x64 and newest Ovi Suite 3.0.0.284.

 

I've been searching to find a thread with a similar problem and find none. So the problem is that i can't refresh my music library in Ovi Suite. There is just no such option. I am not gonna complain about his program showing pieces of music that i have deleted months ago, because that is something i can live with. This is just ridicolous.

 

I have an album that i have moved from a disk to disk and i can't copy it to a device because there is a yellow triangle with a (!) near songs and ovi claiming those files dont exist. They exist but this program just cannot update the directiories. How of an advanced option is that? Who are the people this program is designed for? This software is a joke. How can i refresh the library without changing my system files, formating the discs, buying a new phone and a new PC?

I have the same problem. ovi suite freezes & crashes when trying to play any song and the librariy cannot be refreshed.

 

needless to say that transferring stuff to the n97 mini does not work either.

 

worthless software

Re: Ovi Suite 3 - Music library refresh problem

Hi,

 

Ovi Suite is really an horrible software. I was unable to exclude files from the music library, and they was already deleted from the file system. I kept trying to delete but nothing happened!!!

 

I found where the Ovi Suite keeps the its music library database...

 

With the Ovi Suite closed, go to the folder (in Windows 7):

C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Local\Nokia\Nokia Data Store\DataBase

 

And rename the file MDataStore.db3 to MDataStore.old.

 

Open the Ovi Suite and now just adds yor music to the library. It will take some time but will be an updated library. (if you have any music you don't wanna in the library, move it to another folder before this procedure).

Thanks mate, changed the extension of the .db3 file and problem sorted. Nokia suite is now building a whole new library. Great.
