Poweramp not detecting all music

Recommended Posts

Hi, this new version as well as several of the other releases no longer detect all my music files. They're all in 1 folder. It's only showing 1552 of 2100 on the SD card. Have tried different cards also. This has been an issue on phone and tablet with the last 6 or so alpha/beta releases. Any ideas why? All are mp3 and correctly tagged. edit......when reinstalling older version it finds all music, then when updating to newest release all the music will show but then go back to the 1552 after a short while.

ok, thank you. i will try that. i may have found a fix though. seems to be reading all files. i set it to not skip any files under X ammt of seconds. i have no tracks under 6-0 seconds, but maybe its something in the embed of track itself idk, but seems to be working atm.

Thanks for the tip, I was missing honey pie from the Beatles white album disc 2,that setting has returned it to the library.

I have this issue where it won't for some reason find all the tracks under one folder. I've divided and sorted all my music very thoroughly. Other music  apps on my phone find it just fine. It seems to be just a couple of artists.

i think it has something to do with the embed info on the tracks. i have nothing separated. just one music folder and what i did with selecting hide no tracks less than X sec seems to have worked

Awesome, that worked! thanks!

I think you're right about the embedded info, when I check the song listing the song tracks are way off, some are listed as 1 second long for some reason even though they are regular 4-5 min tracks. Not sure why the track times are all over the place.

I figured out the perfect solution to this problem.

  1. Delete all *.cue files from your Music folders
  2. Change Ignore Short track with duration less than (seconds) to 0
  3. Reselect the music folder(s) in Poweramp
  4. Perform a Full Rescan
  5. Rescan (cos, why not?)
  6. Chill

You can also just enable Show Cue Images option. This way both cues virtual folders and the original track will be always visible in library.

I have problem.When I download some songs I turn on the Poweramp, give the library, albums and It show me nothing.There is written" It looks like anything to me". Then in the mobile I have to put - apps and stop the app. Only then will the downloaded songs show up in the library. Do you know what it is? Do I need to set up something in the library for Poweramp?

Deleting the .cue file and then rescanning did the trick for me.

I have had the problem with the mp3s in a specific folder for a long time. Only two out of 20 songs were found by Poweramp, and I tried everything renaming directory, rescanning, checking mp3 properties. But it was all in the .cue file apparently.

If you are not using CUE files specifically to separate large whole-disc rips into tracks, then (as long as your music files are correctly tagged) then you should delete any CUE files from your file system as they serve no purpose and can actually cause further issues.
