Poweramp no longer shows my music files after latest android update


Recommended Posts

Probably an Android 10/11 file access issue. Check Settings > Library > Music Folders and ensure that you have granted access to the specific location where your music is stored (recent versions of Android won't allow you to just select the root of an SD Card for example) and that you have then ticked the relevant folders in the selection list for PA to scan.

If that still doesn't it work, look at Settings > Misc > File Access Legacy Mode. If it's on, turn it off, and vice versa.

Andrewwiley, thanks for the info but it does not solve the issue with my Galaxy S20 5G.   My settings tab does not even display Settings > Library > Music Folders.   When I attempt to play a song through Poweramp, PA displays a message "Failed to play. Storage unmounted."  The files are on the SD card, as they will play through Samsung Music and Rec Forge.  Using Android 11.  Are there any other suggestions?   Thanks!
