Hello, I am new here just trying to help someone who is having issues with her Karaoke software. I don't know much about karaoke myself but since I am a pc tech and a music guy I figure I can try to help her solve this issue.

So Doris has a software named "Karma" which she has been using for a while but now ran into a problem where the software is not reading the tunes from her external hard drive. She did a virus scan and her drive and music is good. Also she can play music on her pc just fine from the external drive.

So she is looking around for another software[s] which she try a demo to see if it will work with her external drive. Can anyone recommend any other softwares for this please? She has tried one but it only allows her to try songs located in the demo and not from her drive. Thanks guys, blessings.

Sounds like a drive letter problem to me but I could be wrong because the only time I have run into that problem was when windows reassigned the drive letter of my external. I personally assign the letter to my external drive to D and import my songs from that drive.

Thank you. I figure I might as well try to myself to see how karaoke works to help her. She told me she is interested in purchasing 2 softwares Karma or Compuhost.

Main issue is let's say for example she has 3 sub folders of music titled "Rock, Pop, Dance" in a Master folder titled My Music. Can she point the software to the Master folder titled "My Music" or does the way the softwares work is only having to choose one sub folder at a time please? I tried with the Master folder but it's not working on her end this way.

With my DJ and MP3 players I can select only the master folders and all subfolders will display in the playlist/library.

In the morning I am going to both softwares with mp3's on my pc to see if I might have better results.

As long as she clicks on the check box for adding subfolders then it should grab all three.

I had tried myself but it would allow the check mark in any of the boxes. If it's the same deal on my end tomorrow then I will try their support, she said they do not respond though.

Tried out Karma this morning, same deal. My library on my hard drive is setup with a Master Folder titled "Music" and in this Master folder I have many subfolders titled like Dance, Pop, Reggae e.t.c. I am trying to ADD/import the subfolders but in the Media Folders window under Path [please see attached screenshot], I cannot put a check mark into any of the two subfolders check box. When I highlight any of the 2 subfolders path the entire line turns gold color to highlight it but no check mark.

I am confused about one main thing with a karaoke interface's view. Is the music folders structure the same an in explorer where one can choose whichever folder of music one wants to listen to or are all imported tracks placed into one main view where it will list all tracks from every folder of music please?
