Yukusoona Posted November 16, 2021 Share Posted November 16, 2021 Dear Forum, I am not sure what I am doing wrong to get the following problem. Every now and then Poweramp loses its connection from listed songs to actual mp3 files. I have all mp3 files on my external memory card in my smartphone. Whenever the problem appears, Poweramp would act as if all songs listed in Poweramp had been deleted. If I try to play "all songs" in random order e.g., Poweramp would skip all songs from my music folder and rather play some voice recordings (which are in internal memory). I then have to rescan my library and afterwards everything works fine again. I know there is an option "auto-scan" but in my case it does not work very well because I tend to get automated rescans whenever I want to listen to some music (and rescans take some time...). Anyway, if I do not change anything in my music folder, why rescans? There is another issue, probably related to the above-mentioned one: I have created a playlist and planted a shortcut to it on my home screen (via widget => playlist 1 x 1). After a few days this shortcut loses its functionality. All my songs in Poweramp work fine but when I tap on the playlist widget, nothing would happen. Just as if this playlist was empty (which is not the case). I assume, all this has something to do with the fact that my songs are stored on external storage. But what causes this problem? And how could I fix this issue? Thank you very much for you advice!
