Poweramp and Amazon Music Issues

Recommended Posts

I am new to this forum and am looking for some help. I have been using Poweramp for about 2 years on my android phone and really love this app. It does everything I want and need and then some. I have been purchasing and downloading music from Amazon Music for many years now. I am "old school" and believe in owning my songs. About last January 2022, Amazon threw me a curve ball and changed the folder to which it was downloading the music files. I was able to locate the new folder and copy the files to the folder that Poweramp could see. Now recently, Amazon changed its downloads again and I cannot find the folder too which the downloads are going and I believe they may be encrypting the files. 

How can I get Poweramp to see the new downloads from Amazon Music ?? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is there a place in the Amazon app that lets you define this storage location? I would start there.

If this is the case, Poweramp will not be able to play these files. But DRM has been removed from most download vendors. I would be surprised if Amazon put it back.

Android apps are meant to use their own assigned folder in Android/data/ and store any content within subfolders of that location. As a starting point, try android/data/com.amazon.mp3/files/music on internal memory (or SD Card if you have one).

Andrewilley - I have done that and previously the files were in a subfolder of com.amazon.mp3 called "purchased". Now (as of two weeks ago) the purchased folder does not exist. Under the com.amaazon.mp3 folder are hundreds of subfolders like "01" or "10" , "11", "a1", etc.  in these folders are files like "B09WTJJCNL.High.0" ..

On Windows Amazon Music downloads to my PC just fine for purchased music and files are not encrypted. Also, amazon music on the PC allows you to specify where you want your music downloads to be saved. The only time I've seen the folders like @Rebart69 mentions (01, 10, 11, a1, etc) is if you attempt to download something you are allowed to play in Amazon Music but have not purchased.
