I've got an Android, it's got a 32gb slow Micro SD card. After syncing with Salling over USB, the OS takes forever to do what I'm guessing is a check disk on that volume. There are a number of ways to share the SD card over a network that are fairly speedy, and after throwing some new music on doesn't force the OS to check the disk again. Sadly Salling Media Sync doesn't seem to notice a network mount.

Is there anyway I can specify to Salling that a particular network mounted volume is infact a generic Android device?

Thanks!

Wouldn't it need to re-index the storage in order to find new music?

Either way, you should be able to get this to work by sticking the attached file onto your network mount (in the top folder).

Best.

Depends on the application you use to listen to music. WinAMP seems to notice the changes and only reindex what's new. This would all happen after the check disk.

"Either way, you should be able to get this to work by sticking the attached file onto your network mount (in the top folder)."

Thanks, I'll give it a try!

I've thrown the file into the root of my SD card, sadly Salling still doesn't see it. Anything else I can try?

20110302-110402 rubin110@corrode:~$ ls -la /Volumes/10.110.0.125/*.transportConfig
-rwx------@ 1 rubin110 staff 7696 Mar 2 12:09 /Volumes/10.110.0.125/Android MSC.transportConfig

Hm. Did you try re-mounting the disk after putting the file there? Or, alternatively, relaunching Media Sync? Media Sync will only detect the volume if it's mounted at launch, or mounted later.

I've tested this with MobileMe's iDisk, and it works fine.

After mounting I can see the menu bar icon go green, but I don't have the option to sync. Checking out the log I see this...

Wha! That's crazy. Could you please open Console (/Applications/Utilities). I'm hoping something's logged there
