jimo Posted June 4, 2019 Share Posted June 4, 2019 Just bought a new Galaxy S10 before my old, pathetic, S6 dies completely, and used Samsung's so-called "Smart switch" to transfer what it could from the old to the new. While the music files seem to have transferred, the playlists did not. I have scrupulously exported my playlists any time I make a change to any of them, after learning the hard way that playlists are not permanent until exported. The old phone had a Playlists folder with lots of m3u8 files in it, so I naively assumed I could copy that folder to the new phone and that would be that. And, indeed, there are now playlists showing when I select Playlists from the Library main menu, but only if I check the Playlists folder in the Settings->Library->Music Folders->Folders Selection->Internal storage sub-menu; otherwise I get the "Does not look like anything to me" message. The playlists seem to function as expected when asked to play their songs. The problem I experience is that I'm shown ALL the m3u8 files, as "xxx.m3u8", instead of just the name of the playlist itself in a single instance without the suffix. On the old phone, the trick was to NOT check the Settings->...Playlists folder, just the folders, like Music, where songs could be found. Otherwise I would be shown all those m3u8 files. On the new phone, not checking the Playlists folder means no playlists at all. I've tried a variety of import strategies to no avail. What's the trick in the new environment?
