Dear Sir

If you still "NOT" start "Library Sync", please see the below procedure to restart converting from v5 to v6.

1. you start rekordbox v5 and please backup your all own. then close rekordbox.

2. If there is, please stop "rekordbox Agent" process from
- Win:TaskManager
- Mac:Activity Monitor

3. remove the below files. Please be careful.
- Win:
In case of Internal HDD : go to C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Roaming\Pioneer\rekordbox
In case of External HDD : go to {root}/PIONEER/Master
remove share FOLDER
remove automixPlaylist6.xml
remove master.db
remove master.db-shm
remove master.db-wal
remove master.backup.db
remove masterPlaylists6.xml
remove networkAnalyze6.db

remove C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Roaming\Pioneer\rekordbox6 FOLDER
remove C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Roaming\Pioneer\rekordboxAgent FOLDER


- Mac:
In case of Internal HDD : go to /Users/{username}/Library/Pioneer/rekordbox
In case of External HDD : go to {root}/PIONEER/Master
remove share FOLDER
remove automixPlaylist6.xml
remove master.db
remove master.db-shm
remove master.db-wal
remove master.backup.db
remove masterPlaylists6.xml
remove networkAnalyze6.db

remove /Users/{username}/Library/Application Support/Pioneer/rekordbox6 FOLDER
remove /Users/{username}/Library/Application Support/Pioneer/rekordboxAgent FOLDER
remove /Users/{username}/Library/Logs/Pioneer/rekordbox6 FOLDER

4. reboot Win/Mac, and re-start rekordbox.

Dear Sir,

If you already have a v5 back up, please try to do the above.

Thanks,

Dear Donnie,

If you have Win, please open "Task Manager" on Windows and stop process all rekordbox agent. Or if you have Mac, please open "Activity Monitor" and try to do as same.

Thanks.

@Donnie > If you want to use that external drive with another computer, if you are using the creative account, you can move the drive to the other computer and it will have the database synchronized. The other option is to move the database to the external drive.

The reason you're having a problem with the relocation is Windows has been assigning the drive letter as used instead of having a fixed drive letter every time you connect that drive.

You'll need to do a mass-relocation; follow the instructions here.
