new laptop issues... Usb syncing / other functions now limitated...

Hi im still having problems with my new laptop and partially old USB database!
So i was thinking and thinking of a solution

something in a way where all my exact same tracks i have on my usb  stored in a shadow copy on my hdd are reimported in a new database..
That would make the datafile.edb think these tracks stored on my usb are the same as my usb tracks.. and thus i could use syncmanager and finally also use "My tag"
Because now i just can't use alot of rekordbox functions properly

If u could just Reverse sync Playlists/tracks WITH hotcues back to ur collection

or a option where i could be able to use "My Tag" Directly on ur USB (this is needed to be implemented anyway really badly ...)
only it just isnt a fix for my sync problems but still it s really handy..

i have thought of multiple solutions and really complicated ways to workaround and this is my best solution that isnt even that hard for u guys to make..
and its really usefull for everyone coping with broken laptops/crashed laptops
thus having problems to recreate and sync USBs with new laptop playlists ....
Im sure there are similar more easy ways for u guys but this is what i can come of

my solution contains 2 files

An USB Hotcue backup Xml file that ONLY stores "locations'' and could be made and opened by rekordbox now
An zipped/Copied USBANLZ folder/zip from ur USB

the Xml file is supposed "when opted" to make rekordbox rewrite all hotcue info stored on the usb ( a clean usb containing all the tracks i have "imported from the backup content with a fresh rekordbox datafile " without hotcues, beatgrid etc)

the USB Hotcue backup xml u would made / summoned in rekordbox from ur "old USB with hotcues etc" would Look something like this:

it stores the location of ur Usb tracks, for example track X =

F:\Contents\Kurtis Blow\The Breaks.mp3 *

under that it stores the USBANLZ LOCATION of track =




  1. So i now have the USB hotcues backup xml from old USB
    And i have a USBANLZ folder copy zip from my old USB

  2. import all the same tracks into a clean empty rekordbox collection from my backup partition

  3. import all those tracks to my clean empty USB.
    Now i just delete the USB s new USBANLZ Folder and repaste the zipped USBANLZ Copy from my Old USBANLZ containing my hotcue info etc

  4. now i want Rekordbox to use my Hotcue backup XML that will rewrite every listed tracklocation with its given USBANLZ folder location,

  5. when it spots a exact same tracklocation on the USB it rewrites the export.pdb from the USB and tells Export.pdb the new USBANLZ location of that track

    So u can replace "hotcue/file info locations" and have a "fresh new collection but with its old hotcues
    where i  am finally able to SYNC my tracks or use MY TAG
    I really want to use my tag and if it's possible to use it directly

i have made alot of effort and im trying to solve this for weeks so i really would like a adepted committed response to this..
