  1. I love Poweramp, and it's currently my only way of reading music directly from a USB-OTG, but Poweramp can't read the iTunes data (stars, number of plays, etc) that iSyncr creates. The only player that I know of that can do that is Rocket Player. I would love it if Poweramp could read iTunes data created by iSyncr just like Rocket Player. Thank you!
  2. For example, one of the tracks is "chip dip..." from Adventure time. The full path when the USB is connected to the PC is this: D:\syncr\Cartoon Network, Frederator Studios\Adventure Time\Adventure Time - Chip Dip Triple Flips Are Hip.mp3 In the .m3u file it looks like this: /Cartoon Network, Frederator Studios/Adventure Time/Adventure Time - Chip Dip Triple Flips Are Hip.mp3 iSyncr places everything inside the "syncr" folder. Playlists are stored inside the "syncr" folder as .m3u files, and all music files are stored in that folder as well - in more folders sorted by album name, like shown in the above path. On PC, Winamp reads it and plays the files according to the playlist - from the USB. Poweramp also reads it fine if iSyncr syncs the "syncr" folder onto the internal hard drive of the Nexus 5, but for some reason not while's it's on the USB. If on the internal hard drive, the path would be this: /storage/emulated/0/syncr/Cartoon Network, Frederator Studios/Adventure Time/Adventure Time - Chip Dip Triple Flips Are Hip.mp3 The .m3u file is the same, but this time Poweramp would find the music files from the playlist. For some reason Poweramp can't find the music files according to the playlist only while it takes the playlists from the USB. If the playlist and the files are on the internal hard drive, it works fine. I'm not sure what you meant by relative and absolute path, but I think this is already using relative path. EDIT: OK! I did the following and found a temporary solution: I left all the synced files on the USB, but transferred the .m3u files only onto the internal hard drive of the Nexus 5, to another folder named syncr. I told Poweramp to grab files from both syncr folders, in the USB and on the Nexus 5, and for some reason now it works! It uses the the .m3u files on the internal hard drive to find the music files on the USB, which shouldn't work at all, but for some reason it does. So basically I now do the following everytime I want to sync my iTunes: 1. Sync the USB with iSyncr. 2. Copy the .m3u files from the USB syncr folder onto a hard drive syncr folder on my mobile. 3. Tell Poweramp to scan music in both folders. Now everytime I basically plug in the OTG, wait a little bit for the Nexus 5 to load it, plug in the earphones and it just starts playing.
  3. Hello everyone. Today I bought a SanDisk Ultra Dual USB-OTG Drive 3.0 64GB (exFAT), and used iSyncr to sync my iTunes 30GB (more than 6,300 tracks) music library onto it. Next, I plugged it inside my unrooted Nexus 5 with the latest Android updates, and started searching for a music player that could read the playlists from there. The first choice was Rocket Player - which is iSyncr's suggested player. It can read the music ranking (stars) and all other details that I created using iTunes if the files are synced onto the internal hard drive, but of course it can't read from a USB-OTG. I started trying random music players, and they all failed. Even the latest version of Poweramp couldn't do it. After searching the web for people with a similar problem, I found out that the latest alpha build of Poweramp should be able to do it! I installed Poweramp-alpha-build-703-uni.apk 703/704 build, and when I looked into which folders to tell it to read, an option popped up to "grant permission" for Poweramp to read my USB! After a full scan, the music files play perfectly (although I need to rescan the drive everytime I remove and reinsert it)! But for some reason it can't read the playlists. It SEES the playlists, but all of them have tags underneath that says: "not loaded yet". When I open one of them, it's empty - with 0 tracks in it. So I went on and tried to sync a playlist onto my Nexus 5 internal hard drive - and this time Poweramp could read and play the playlists just fine! At first I thought it was related to the .plb file extension that iSyncr uses to update its playlists, but the problem occurs only when Poweramp tries to read the playlists from an OTG-USB. I looked through the .m3u files on my PC using Notepad, and everything looks fine. Winamp plays them from the USB while it's connected to my PC with no problem. tl;dr Poweramp sees playlists created by iSyncr as empty - but only on the USB-OTG. If the playlists are on the Nexus 5 internal hard drive it reads them fine. In the meantime, I play my music based on Genres using that Poweramp alpha version, but of course I want to play my playlists (and hopefully see all other iTunes information that iSyncr creates, like track rankings). Did someone run into such a problem? Do you have any solution or something that I could try and didn't? Thank you. EDIT: OK!

Tell Poweramp to scan music in both folders. I still need to rescan the folders every time I insert the USB though. I hope this procedure will get easier in the future.
  4. Thanks for the quick answer! I can see the playlists in Poweramp, but they are empty and under each it says "not loaded yet". When I press on it it shows an empty playlist, and it's still not loaded even after I rescanned everything. When I look at them in my PC Notepad everything looks fine. They lead into folders on the same drive. Winamp, for example, can read from them just fine. It loads all of the songs and plays them well.
  5. Hello, I just bought a SanDisk Ultra Dual USB-OTG Drive 3.0 64GB (exFAT), and used iSyncr to sync my iTunes music library (30GB) on it. I attached it to my UNrooted Nexus 5 with the latest Android version, and started searching for a music player that would be able to read my playlists and play my music from there. Nothing worked, and it seems like the latest version of Poweramp couldn't read it as well. I read in one of the forums that the latest Alpha build could do it - so I tried the Poweramp-alpha-build-703-uni.apk 703/704 build, and lo and behold, I can see my OTG-USB! I used the "grant permission" option to allow Poweramp to read it, and it can play my music files! The problem is that it can still not play my playlists. I understand I can use this alpha version for only two weeks. What do I do until the final version is released? Will the final version allow me to play my playlists from the OTG-USB? Thank you!
