    Yes. The controls work.

    A mickey mouse temporary solution, but if I select whatever folder I want PA to play with something like File Commander, since I have PA set to always play MP3s and FLAC files, that directory will get played by PA. I can still set shuffle options - I just can't set the library with PA.

    Funny. I still have no sub-directories able to be seen or chose for the library, but if I use a program like Total Commander to find a file, click that file and have PA play it, if I click on the grid symbol (the one that shows All songs, Artists, Playlists, etc.) all the songs in subdirectories are visible. I can click on an album with Total Commander and the entire album gets played. I still can't select anything specific for the library though. Steve

    No problem. Every time I've reinstalled it's just been from the Google Play Store.

    Just FWIW, I thought that the problem might be the SD card, so I tried another one and got the exact same result. The inability of PA to "see" below the top levels of even internal storage made that a long shot anyway. Just FWIW.

    OK. Thanks.

    OK. I just uninstalled - deleted that folder - shut down - restarted and reinstalled from the play store. Same exact thing. Just the two top choices for the library. It doesn't seem like the problem could be pie though, since the Galaxy S8 plus that I had was running Pie too.. Strange. With only those two top choices available (and neither of them ticked), it's still reporting that I have 1 folder and 361 tracks available. Which is about right for the last directory I was using as a library. Steve

    Will do. I'll give that a try right now. Just in case it makes any difference, I'm not installing from the apk on my phone (I don't have it.) I'm installing from the Play Store. Thanks Steve

    Good suggestion, but I've done that twice. With a complete power off between uninstall and reinstall. :)

    OK. I just went through that again. The exact steps were: 1. I selected a song in Total Commander and clicked play with PA. I got the message "too many retries". Probably because I tried that last night and then kept trying next track and previous track - to no avail. So, 2. I went back to PA settings and made sure both top level choices ("Intern´╗┐al Storage" and "SD Card") were ticked. 3. Then I did a full rescan. (That IS what I'd done before but this one took a lot longer). When it was done I had a bunch of folders and thousands of files selected. That makes sense since the card DOES have thousands of songs on it. However, nothing more than the two top level choices ("Intern´╗┐al Storage" and "SD Card") was still available. 4. I played songs through Total Commander again and was able to go to next track and previous track, but it WAS everything. Including ringtones and other stuff I just didn't want to hear. PA still showed nothing below those two top levels for library choices. 5. I shut down PA on my phone and went into another room to answer this on a computer. I just checked PA again. It still shows only those two choices top level choices ticked, but it's back to showing 0 folders and 0 tracks selected. I figured it was probably a security/permissions thing last night and looked for anything I thought might have anything to do with PA or default apps, but couldn't find a thing.
