Rekordbox.xml not exporting

Zeno shared this question 39 days ago
Solved

Imported my Virtual DJ database.xml file successfully. Tried exporting to a rekordbox.xml file, shows "Exporting" to the chosen location but nothing is created. It worked with a local folders test initially (see attached).

Hey

With the export that isn't working are you trying to export to an external hard drive? You mentioned that the one that was working was to a local folder.


Does the "Exporting" text when you are dong this ever change to say completed? Looking at the export logs you attached, it's taking a few minutes to complete the export, so this might take a little longer if you are exporting to an external drive.

Exporting to local drive. “Exporting” is displayed for a couple of seconds then the progress circle stops turning it never shows “Completed”. How long should this take based on my dB size? Is it working in the background with no sign of progress?

It should only take a couple of minutes to export your database.


I can see that there are no playlists which could be the cause of this, can you create a playlist in MIXO and add some tracks and then try exporting again.

Hi Olivia,

OK thanks. I did a test playlist with two tracks and that worked. Now, in order to export my entire VDJ XML file to a rekordbox.xml file (using v5.8.5 r18487-16892-16721)

1. Do I have to create a playlist in MIXO that has all my tracks?

2. Do I then place this rekordbox.xml file into the Rekordbox path in order for it to point to the correct track location? If so, I should then see folders appear in the Explorer sub menu in the Rekorbox software. Am I correct?

Thanks for testing that.


Your library not exporting if there is no playlist is a bug we've found during testing the latest version. This will be fixed in the next release which we are aiming to have out soon.


To get your exported file into Rekordbox you need to update the Rekordbox settings to point to the file:

/51271576b2a5b0d29d181db299292f22

Your file will then be visible under the Rekordbox.xml section of the explorer and you can import tracks from there.

Also experiencing long Export times. I noticed a couple of things:

Running Export from Settings doesn't work. Right clicking on a crate and exporting from there seems to work however:


It's hard to know where Mixo is at in the export process. I've been running the export for about 8mins now and I can see MXO utilizing the CPU. But There's no way for me to know how long is still left. As a user it would be helpful to see a export progress e.g. Export-complete/Total-to-be-exported.

Hi David,

Thanks for this feedback!


We have a big update coming soon which fixes the issues with exporting so it'll be much easier and clearer.


You'll be notified as soon as it's released in-app.
