MY SHARED FOLDER is not defaulting to actually being my shared folder. instead the "sharing" is in the main Morpheus folder. i want to fix this in the registry without reinstalling. when i look in HKEY_USERS\DEFAULT\SOFTWARE\MORPHEUS\LOCAL CONTENT i see one of my shared folders listed as DIR 0 - "012345:e:\Music"(this is ok), underneath that is a key or value to disable sharing "0x00000000(0)" and underneath that DownloadDir - "". i'm guessing this last one is the one i need to alter and i want to make sure i'm putting in the right thing. what makes me pause is the 012345 in front of e:\Music.

why mess in your HKEYS when you can fix it on Morpheus. Open Morpheus & go to tools/options/traffic & the 2nd # can be changed to 0 if you like. Or, work on whats shared in My Media on morpheus...
Better yet... set your folders so that it does not find them to share.

FROM MORPHEUS
Q: How to do I share files?


A: You can scan your entire hard drive for folders containing 'media' files - audio files, video files and images - and then select which of these folders you want to share. To do so, choose Find Media to Share... from the Tools menu, alternatively you can, in My Media click on the Import Folder(s) button. Then click Import Wizard and follow the step-by-step instructions.

You can also select entire folders that you want to share. For instance, you may have a folder with your vacation pictures or a folder with your video files that you would like to share. To do this, choose Find Media to Share from the Tools menu, then click Folders. You will see a list of the folder on your computer. You can expand a drive or folder by clicking the + sign. When you have found the folder you want to share, check the box to the left of the folder. Note that all folders beneath a shared folder will also be shared.

Whenever you have a file you want to share, you can also just drop it in the My Shared Files folder. This folder is automatically created when you install Morpheus Media Desktop. You can find this folder in the My Documents folder and on the Desktop.

All files in a shared folders is accessible by any other MusicCity users, so be sure you are not sharing files you want to keep private or files that are copyrighted. back to the top

Q: How do I stop sharing files?


A: You can stop sharing files in three ways dependent on your need:
Stop sharing a specific file: In My Media right-click on the file you want to stop sharing and select Stop Sharing. You can also select the file or multiple files and click on the Share button or select Stop Sharing from the Action menu.

Stop sharing all files: If you for any reason want to temporarily stop sharing all your files, select Options... from the Tools menu and click on the Download and Upload tab. There you can click the check box next to Disable sharing of files with other Morpheus members. To start sharing all files again, just click on the same checkbox.

Removing a folder from My Media: If you want to remove a complete folder from My Media and thus also stop sharing it, click on the Import folders to My Media button or choose Find Media to Share from the Tools menu. Then click Folders and you can de-select the check box on the right of the folder you no longer want to share. back to the top

Q: How do I know if a file is shared or not?
A: If a file is shared, it will have a little hand under the file icon . If it is not shared it does not have the little hand. back to the top

Q: How do I delete files from My Media?


A: If you want to delete files from your My Media and your hard disk, first make sure you are in the My Media view. Select the file or files you want to delete and use a delete key on your keyboard, click on the Delete button or select Delete from the Action menu. You can also right-click on the file and select Delete. back to the top

Q: How do I locate a file on my hard drive?
A: If you want to locate a file that is visible in My Media, on your hard drive, first make sure you are in the My Media view. Right-click on the file you want to locate and select Locate File or select the file and select Locate File from the Actions menu. The folder where the file is located opens in Windows Explorer. Here you can for instance copy, rename, play or edit the file. back to the top

Q: How do I save a file in a different location or change a file name?
A: If you want to save a file to a different location (copy) a file that is visible in My Media, first make sure you are in the My Media view. Right-click on the file you want to save and select Save As or select the file and select Save As... from the Actions menu. A standard Save File dialog opens here you can select a new folder where to save the file or save it with a different name. Not that the original file is still kept where it was and will still be available in My Media. back to the top

savvylady - the conventional way to resolve this issue is not working. whenever i want to download music, it is directed to the main MORPHEUS folder instead of the MY SHARED FOLDER.

:p

Hi all,

Tried Morpheus/Kazaa for a while and apart from constantly sapping my system resources and being VERY buggy, the fact that it is so user-UNfriendly (like the kind of problem discussed here) made me switch to WinMX.

It is so simple to use, you can unshare/share whatever you like with a couple of clicks, change directories, stream different incoming file types into different directories. Then use whatever Media Player you like to play back the files (unlike Morpeus/Kazaa which I believe locks you into WMP - another system resouces hog).

Search results come back in a few seconds and you can sort them by size, bitrate, user, ping, Connection speed (love T3+!), how many download slots the user has free, etc, etc.

The downloads are resumable (great for large files) and they are stored with their original filenames - not the 'T1-56437... or whatever that Morpheus/Kazaa tags onto them.

Plus you can import OpenNap server lists into the program and get the best of both worlds - WinMX's P2P network AND the OpenNap network (which Music City used to be part of until they realised they could sell advertising by setting up their own proprietry P2P network).

And all with no ads or spyware (as far as I can tell).

I know it might sound like I should be working for WinMX's PR department here, but I just can't understand why people put up with the limitations of Morpheus when there are better products out there.

Best Regards
Kit

kit - i also have winmx, and while it is a great program, i don't very often find the songs i'm looking for. whereas with morpheus i usually find them. can you clarify "import open nap servers"?

meanwhile there's still my original problem.......

kazaa is full of spyware * spyware will eat up your resources ... however Morpheus will not.

Indigo... I don't know how to do that. I think you'd have to just reinstall the program...maybe delete it...then reinstall but move the MP3's to another file. make a file on the desktop or somewhere.TUNES or something... move them to it til you resolve the problem

i typed in the directory path without any fancy numbers in place of " " and then moved a couple of data files into the db folder and it seems to be doing the trick.....so far.....
