  1. Hello all! Thank you to everyone that took the time to respond. I did a full rescan of my library, and it solved by problem - my playlists work again!
  2. I just opened one of the m3u8 files I exported, and it shows a more "traditional" path to the file, like this: #EXTM3U #EXT-X-RATING:0 /storage/6435-3438/Music/Kid Rock/Rock N' Roll Jesus/kid rock - all summer long.mp3 #EXT-X-RATING:0 /storage/6435-3438/Music/Fall Out Boy/Promo Only Modern Rock Radio December/04-fall_out_boy-alpha_dog.mp3 #EXT-X-RATING:0 /storage/6435-3438/Music/Sir Mix a Lot/Mack Daddy/sir mix-a-lot - baby got back.mp3 I'm guessing the number after storage is the old sd card name? If I can change that, will these files work?
  3. I'm not sure how to tell if my playlists are file based, but I've done the "Library > Playlists > (menu) > Rescan/Resolve Playlists" thing and the files didn't update in my playlists. I have now exported my playlists so I do have a backup. Playlists are m3u files. If I open one in notepad, I see the paths to the files and they still look valid, so I guess it just needs to know the "source" path? I'm able to play the "new" linked files, so PA does have access to the sd card, and it knows where the files are.
  4. Hello! New here, apologies if I've put this topic in the wrong place. I recently bought a new SD card for my phone (went from 32gb to 256), and essentially copied/pasted the entire file structure from the old card to the new in the hopes that it would cause as few issues as possible for the various apps/files I had on there. Unfortunately Poweramp still sees this new SD card as a different path to the files, which is causing me two issues: 1. I used the rescan feature, so now I have two links for each file (1 dead and 1 active) - I could fix this by using the "full rescan" feature, but... 2. All of my playlists are using the old dead links. If I do a full rescan, it think it deletes any dead links, which means all my playlists would be blank? Is there any way for me to update the link path to the new file location en masse so I don't have to rebuild my playlists from scratch?
