DC Not Recognizing Existing Episodes After Reloading on New Phone with Transferred SD Card

Hello,

I recently switched phones and had to reload DC onto a new phone. I hadn’t performed backups, but transferred the SD card with all existing episodes into the new phone.

I reloaded DC and the feeds, and moved all existing episodes to the new “episodeenclosures” folders specified in feed options/feed storage directory for each feed. It still won’t recognize the existing episodes. I tried to follow the steps outlined herehttp://www.doggcatcher.com/node/2529, but I apparently missed something.

Thoughts?

What probably happened is

What probably happened is that the numbered folders from your old phone don't line up with the numbered folders for your new device. Those numbers are created sequentially when a feed is added, so they will be different on different devices. The only way to resolve that is to manually verify that the folder you are copying the media files to is for the correct feed. You can see which folder a feed expects its media in in the feed options...storage directory.
