Freaking AWESOME!!! It worked like a champ... I had ALOT of old BPM files and was at a loss on how to get them over to VDJ 8! P.S. for those who have not used this yet... it takes alittle experimentation... but I did it all pretty quick! THANKS!!!

DJNice you are a legend buddy! You are a life saver.... you have just saved me weeks of hard work. I have been a BPM studio user from day one in the 90s and you can imagine all playlists created from then. I have been using VDJ as well but not properly until recently. I have been panicking how the hell to migrate all my files across then I came across your program tool... this has made my day. Thank you big time!

One question please if you could help me... I have been using multiple eternal hard drives with BPM and have now decided to use just the one new hard drive for all music. This is presenting a problem as you can expect as VDJ is showing files as missing when I remove the external HDs. Is there a way of renaming internally or bringing the sources to one directory when syncing with VDJ please?

Also when searching for missing files will it be possible to mass run the search within the VDJ rather than having to go out into folders wwhen prompted please?

Again massive thank you and I look forward to you reply buddy!

Cheers

not shure, if i understand your problem right.

In my tool is a (upper) dropbox. You can choose a new (and only) driveletter there. All migrated playlists, that contains files with pathes to external drives, will have this drive letter.

Be shure, that you 100% get same folderstructure in your "all-in-one" Drive as in your external.

eg:

E:\music\sampler\Bavo_32\Cd1.... must be same in drive c:\ --> C:\music\sampler\Bavo_32\Cd1
otherwise no software in the world will find your tracks ;-)

Hi

Thank you for your reply. I will try what you have suggested and see if it works.

So does that mean that if I move the files onto an external drive and rename the drive it should work? Did i understand that right? Also if my music are on different/multiple drives is there a possibility that I can have all folders onto one hard drive? Thank you for the pateience and time to help.

Cheers

Reading and thinking through mesage again... does that mean I can still have all folders from multiple drive "all in one new drive" as long as I rename the path with the "new drive letter" in the drop down from you page?

Did I get it right?

Thank you

Currently, there isn't.

In general: If you want to move or copy files, do this from within VDJ with the VDJ browser. That way you don't have to edit filepaths manually. VDJ will take care and correct them while copying/ moving the files.

Hi Thank you for your quick reply. i will give it a try again. The files are loading as "files missing so have to relocate" individually. Not sure if I am doing it wrong. The Lst have been transfered from a different (old laptop). Would it be better to load them as GRP or Lst in this case? Thank you for all your help guys

Lst vs. Grp...... As you like....
Grp = Database - rootcrate, contains splitable subcrates (like lst files)
BPM Studio Playlists are stored as lst files
