hexagram1993 Posted February 10, 2015 Share Posted February 10, 2015 Hi,I have noticed that this seems to be a pretty common issue on the forums but have yet to actually find a thread where the advice helped me. My problem, for those yet unfamiliar with this issue, is that my playlists aren't being properly imported into Poweramp when I sync my phone music with windows media player. The playlist shows up, but the player says that there are 0 songs in it. Here is a list of all the things I have tried to remedy this situation so far, along with descriptions of how I tried to implement them: 1. Saving the playlist in different places-In wmp (or rather, in my computer), I have all my song files in a folder called 'Music', with no separation by sub-folders. The only subfolder in 'Music' is a folder called 'Playlists' where wmp saves my playlist file in .wpl format.-I created a folder called Playlists inside the music folder on my android where wmp is sending all the synced songs, and put my playlist directly into there. Still no luck, Poweramp is entirely clueless that this playlist even exists. Possible problems with this fix:-When I sync songs to my android, windows media player puts them in the android's music folder, however it separates them into subfolder within the music folder by artists. For example \MyAndroid\Music\blink-182\FirstDate.mp3 as opposed to \MyComputer\Music\FirstDate.mp3 so it could be that the playlist file expects the song files to be one folder above it, only to discover that they aren't there since wmp saves them into subfolders within the android music folder. 2. Convering the playlist to .m3u format-I'm not entirely sure how to go about doing this, I assumed that simply changing the extension on the file from .wpl to .m3u would do the trick but it doesn't seem to have, Poweramp remains cluesless as to what's going on. Is there anything I can do about this short of paying more money for a different app? Additional info:-I religiously made sure that all the relevant folders were checked via settings in Poweramp, so the problem isn't that Poweramp isn't looking where I want it to look. Neither a rescan not a restart seems to give it a hint.-The song files in the playlist still show up in my library. Poweramp has no problem recognizing the mp3 and wma files that I am importing, only playlists. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
