  1. Well, I finally solved my problem! After 8 months kindly resenting the folder list of Poweramp, a bright idea finally popped into my head. A music player which I tried earlier, downloaded album art in the respective music album folders. Nothing special; just some .jpg's. But Poweramp apparently could not deal with that, so it decided to stutter and freeze while scrolling through the album list in 'grid view'. So, when I deleted all of the album art in my music folder, *poof*: gone my problem it was. No more stutter, no more dark coloured folder icons! So as I sit here - actively suppressing my itty witty sarcastic pedanticness, I do would like to state my love for your fine little app. Much of it! (And thanks for the help of course.)
  2. Hi, As my last post is almost a week old and has reached the amount of 0 answers since then, I come here curious of what's causing the silence. As stated; I don't experience the problem as long as I use the library, but as also stated; the library doesn't work so welll (i.e. with soundtrack tags and it screws up the order of multiple cd albums). Concluding; still loving the app; I just like some clues as to what else I can do to make my Poweramp experience a little bit less of a hassle. Thanks in advance.
  3. Hi again. So I did as you suggested; costed me quite a bit of time. But I didn't find any errors whatsoever. But here's the strange thing. I was accustomed to using the 'folder mode'. In this folder mode I kept running into this annoying bug (list and grid view). But! When I use the library in album view, artist view or any other of the options in there, the freezing does not occur! Only problem here is that the folder mode is easier to use for me for a number of reasons, so I'd rather scroll through the folders. Anyhow, I sincerely do hope you guys got an explanation for this.
  4. Yesyes, I am truly sorry for any pedanticness on my side. No need to be so triggerhappy. Anyhow; I am still thankful for the help and I'm going to see what's what. By the way: I am not the topic starter, I own a Sony Xperia Z1 Compact. (Android 4.4.2, build 14.3.A.0.757, with a Samsung 32GB class 6 SD card on a Xperia Z1 Compact)
  5. I am sorry that you misunderstood, or that I explained myself wrong. But who in their right minds has 30GB of music unorganized in 1 folder?? On my SD card there is 1 folder called music; this folder is selected for the library to search in. In this folder I created a structure as follows: about 100 folders of artist names and below each artist folder ar the album folders. So yes; in the end I have only one folder selected, and below that is a neatly organized set of artist and album folders. And Max' 'solution' (excuse the sarcasm); testing each folder and wait if Poweramp stalls is going to take me several evenings - if not more - something I'm not willing to do (excuse the laziness) anytime soon. But I'll sleep on it, the problem is annoying enough to put some time in it. I was just hoping there would be an easy solution. But thanks for the advice and support; I'm going to see what I can find. And good luck with Uruguay!
  6. I already have only one folder selected for my music. And unfortunately, my phone is not rooted. NB. I noticed the freezing also occurs when scrolling through my library even when I'm not playing any music . So there's that. 240 folders (root/music/artist/album) with accompanying folder art seems to be a bit much for Poweramp (or my phone). But as stated earlier; other music players don't seem to have this problem. (Android 4.4.2, build 14.3.A.0.757, with a Samsung 32GB class 6 SD card on a Xperia Z1 Compact)
  7. So, I tried the second option (as stated, my internal memory doesn't have enough space to copy 30GB of files). My PC didn't find any errors on the SD card. So I formatted the thing, copied everything back like it was. Aaaaand; the problem is not gone. Any more solutions or workarounds are more than welcome.
  8. It's strange how this bad block doesn't affect other music players, e.g. GMMP. But I really like Poweramp so I'll put in some more effort to fix this. Any suggestions as to how I can fix this bad block problem?
  9. So, no further solutions? I really love Poweramp but this bug is making it kind of unworkable when I'm driving my car. I'm trying another music player now which hasn't got this specific issue, but I really do hope this gets fixed.
  10. I copied about 4GB of music to my internal memory - didn't have more space left, and the problem didn't occur. So it could be the amount of music or the albumart, or the read difference between in- and external memory. Still hope it can be fixed in an update :-)
  11. So, done some testing on my MicroSD card - it's a Samsung 32GB class 6 card by the way. No errors where found. And like I said before; only one folder for Poweramp to search through. Any other suggestions?
  12. Well, I'm going to check my sd card for errors then; option #2 isn't it; I already had only one folder selected for the library to search in. Thanks for the suggestion, I'll let you know if it works!
  13. Android 4.4.2 here, build 14.3.A.0.757 on a Xperia Z1 Compact, none rooted and the latest version of Poweramp. Same problem - since my new Android version I guess. Keeps stuttering in the album list, grid view, during scrolling. Quite annoying. Hope there's a fix for this, love the app. NB. Maybe it's related to the not so long ago introduced high res album art?
