kevint1972 Posted December 3, 2022 Share Posted December 3, 2022 I'm a big fan of Poweramp in general & have been using it for years on various Samsung phones. However I keep running into a small but frustrating recurring bug. I currently use a Samsung Galaxy Fold 4 although this was also a problem on the Samsung Galaxy S21 I had previously. I always update to the latest software versions. As a big music fan, I am always adding new songs to my phone's music library, which I do on my PC, in Windows Explorer, via a physical link to my phone. Usually when I add a song, I will be creating a new directory since I organise my music files by having a directory for every album I fully or partially own. Occasionally I move or delete a directory. When I have made these changes and the changes take effect in Poweramp, I often find that existing songs whose files are located in the same part of the directory tree will lose their album art in the playlists they appear in. This only affects playlists. The songs still have their album art if I search for them individually and look them up within their albums. However the art is gone from the playlists they are in. Instead you see the Poweramp logo for that song. The song is still there in the playlist and does play, just without any art. In the latest example where this happened (today), I added 1 new folder containing 1 MP4 and 1 JPG under my /Music/Singles folder. That new song is now appearing in my playlists with its correct art but all the other songs that are located in subdirectories under the Singles directory have lost their album art in every playlist they appear in. Usually when this happens I can restore the art by using the Rescan / Resolve Playlists function. Sometimes that doesn't work however. When it doesn't, I have tried rebooting the phone and also using the Recan and Full Rescan functions under Settings. Again, sometimes these things work and sometimes not. Today none of these worked. When rescanning doesn't work, the only way I know to get the art back in the playlists is to remove each song from all its playlists and add it again. This can be time consuming depending on how many songs are affected. Any advice on how I might avoid or fix this in future would be gratefully received, Thank you.
