Can't choose folder to read; can't find files; can't anything

Recommended Posts

Can't choose any subfolder on the library. If I choose the whole root, the app finds nothing

Two "paths" to the same physical SD card are shown, somewhy

Even if I move all the songs to the internal SD, the app can't find none

If I navigate to ANY song using a file explorer, I can play the song as normal on Poweramp

The SD has been formatted recently as FAT32

Tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app

 

 

Sony Xperia Z3

Official ROM, Android 6.0.1, rooted and xposed

What do you mean by "Internal SD" ? The smartphone memory ?

Remove the SD thoroughly, so that android doesn't show any SD, internal or not. Then retry.

If you remove SD make sure to tell Android to separate the card before you physically remove it.

If nothing helps, try another SD.

When you remove the SD Card, try reformatting it on a PC (or in the device if you prefer) and then copy all of your files back to it. Android will generate a new random numbered foldername for the card. You definitely should only the ticking one of any two instances of the same SD Card though.

Are you sure you installed it from official sources like from here in the download section or from Google Play?

Because I've seen similar posts(multiple times) like this & they were using hacked version of the app.

That was it !
Fixed

I downloaded from play store, then made a backup of the APK (I always do: ES file explorer has such feature)

Probably got corrupted in the processs (and I did install again from my backup)

 

Downloaded from play store again, and it worked. Glitch gone.

 

 

Now obsolete, but I'll post anyway:

(A non answer is also an useful answer, as it tells us where NOT to look)

Correct

For some reason, Android labels the internal memory as "SD Card"

Done that once or maybe twice.

(I frequently make backups of the SD content, and format afterwards to "clanup")

Indeed, a new identifier is assigned everytime. No fix.


And finally, there's that:

And I did that again. All songs

And removed the externarl SD card afterwards (safely ejected)

Poweramp still can't find anything

And you chose the directories in Settings > Library > Music Folders ?

What happens if you put ( some ) Music files to the internal memory ? Meaning NOT the SD-card, internal SD-Card, wahtever, but the Android memory ( if you are not sure, remove SD-card competely before you try ).

Now with Prosenjit's fix I am allowed to do that

Before his fix, I couldn't. As shown in the illustration I uploaded.

Before Prosenjit's fix, I did exactly that. Moved the songs to the internal and then removed the external SD

By then, it did Nor work.

Now with his fix, it's unnecessary

Wasn't so much a 'fix', as advising you to use a legitimate installer file.

After all this, there is totally no point backing up apps you download from play store. (unless you want a specific release).

That, and my constant reinstallation of apps.

I have internet on very few places that I visit
