      Poweramp v3 Project Update   04/24/2017

      As you may be aware, the Poweramp developer has been working hard on an updated material design user interface for Poweramp v3 which required a full ground-up rebuild of the code and is taking some time to get to a beta-test stage. See the forum thread for more details and to discuss.

Grant Access

73 posts in this topic

Hello,

 

My device: Samsung Galaxy S5, Android 5.0

Poweramp: build-573

 

Fix: tag edit/track deletion on SD cards @ Lollipop (Poweramp will ask for write permission on SD card. Due to the bug in Android, this will fail for SD cards without label)

 

 

My problem: I want to edit my tag, I click on "Get Support" --> "Grant Access", but nothing open to choose my SD Card. Please help me.

When I use Root Explorer (I have no root) or QuickPic, it ask me at start for access and then it works fine.

I just did the same, music to SD Card transfer on my Samsung Galaxy S5, with lollipop OS. The 571 build Poweramp does play the music but will not display the Artist Name, Track Title or Cover Art. So I can't even make a Playlist.

Unfortunately, this part of Android is new and somewhat unpolished. To enable SD card you need to use menu in that dialog (three dots) then hit Enable SD card - this will show it in the left sidebar.

There is absolutely no way we can simplify this dialog from app side, unfortunately, and there is also a bug when unlabelled SD card just fails that dialog completely.

Thanks!

Thanks, but I don't understand how I get step 1.
I need screenshots from the start of Poweramp.

I've not got a Lollipop device to check this with, but I'm sure Max will be along in a bit to confirm which it is anyway. Looks like it should be found by pressing the Grant Access button.

I am also having this issue. I imagine this dialogue is meant to appear after hitting 'grant access', however nothing is happens when I press it. Here are some screw shots of what I see:

Pressing 'grant access' does nothing and takes me back to the player.

Cheers

Yeah, the exact same thing happens to me. Really need to know how to fix this, or will a future update be fixing this?

I've resolved the issue (for my phone at least).

 

I managed to get the 'Grant Access' dialogue to appear by deleting a file. Editing the Info/Tags of a file would not bring up this dialogue.

 

I'm using Poweramp 573 on a HTC One M8 with Android 5.0.1.

Do you not see the Grant Access button at all on your Lollipop device, or do you see the button but pressing it does not take you to the selector screen?

same as egx11. Even if I get the dialogue and select the folder it is impossible to delete any track.

And this is on Lollipop devices, yes?

OMG Thank you so much. I'm been trying to figure this out for a few hours and this worked. Thanks a lot.
