How to transfer the music library ( incl downloaded pictures) to a new device?


Recommended Posts

PA Settings > Export Settings

Optional: if you have created any ratings (e.g. 1-5 stars), these can be exported via a Playlist. Go to the 'All Songs' Category, long-press on any song, tap 'All', and then '+Playlist' to create a new playlist containing all of your library's entries.

PA Settings > Library > Playlists > Export 

Install PA on new device and import the Settings file that you exported above.

Copy your music folders and files to your new device. Copy the exported playlists over too, into somewhere within your music folders hierarchy. Run PA and assign new folder permissions in PA Settings > Library > Music Folders, and everything should be scanned back into your Library. Make sure PA Settings > Library > Playlists > Import Ratings is enabled if you do want to restore any ratings.

Downloaded artwork is cached in subfolders of Android/data/_com.maxmpz.audioplayer/ (or for Android 10/11+ it uses Android/data/com.maxmpz.audioplayer/files/ , without an underscore). All of the subfolders can simply be copied over to the new device's relevant folder once PA has been run for the first time.
