Playlists lost

Recommended Posts

I wanted to add an old playlist in m3u8 format to Poweramp.

So I copied it to a folder, added it to music folders then tapped rescan.

 

When i went back to library, everything was gone !!!!

 

For some reason, when i selected the new folder he unselected the old folder !!

I lost all my playlist, since there was no musics in library !!!

 

I re-added the old folder but it was too late, all playlists are empty now !

 

PS: Pardon my bad english.

I don't suppose you might have exported your other playlists (the internal Poweramp ones which were cleared) at any stage might you? If so you could re-import them. Or do you have a backup of the database (e.g. using an app such as Titanium Backup)

Yea, I thought of that...but didn't !

 

It's very annoying, you lose everything, last added songs, playlists....

Poweramp should be more careful when doing that, ask if you really want to do that and lose everything.

Poweramp syncs playlists contents with the contents of the sdcard. If song file is moved, this is a new file for Poweramp, and old file looks like removed. Your system for some reason renames/moves such songs/song folders. I would recommend selecting exactly music folders in Poweramp Settings -> Folders and Library and hitting Full Rescan one in the same Settings category.

Thanks!

No, my songs/files are never moved or renamed. When I added the new folder, for some reason, he had unselected the previous one.

Maybe it's an default behavior, like I was supposed to select all the folders again.

 

Thanks for replying
