I created a Japanese deck back in 2014/15 and spent a lot of time importing audio/images. I have the old backup and when I import it into Anki, the text shows up but the audio and images do not. I can see the collection.media folder right next to the backups folder and sounds and images files are working.
I tried the Check Media button and it says there are a lot of missing and unused files. When I go in to edit a card that the sound isn’t working for, I can search for that sound file and I see it in the collection.media file.
Is there a way to point Anki to that folder so it knows where to get the audio & images?
I’ve made progress. The PC I uploaded the deck from still cannot play audio (but yes the audio files play outside of Anki) but I’ve been able to download the deck to another PC and Android and it works on both of those devices.
As far as I’m concerned, that’s a success, but still not sure why it’s not working on the original PC.
