Will my music still have all the song information I added in Poweramp if I transfer it over to a new memory card?

Recommended Posts

I need to upgrade my memory card and I want the song information I added in Poweramp to be picked up when I transfer the music to a new memory card? Will this information show up or will the song information revert back to what it originally was when I downloaded the music?

As long as you copy all of the contents from the old memory card onto your new bigger one (and don't change the apps/etc on the device itself) then you should not notice any difference.

What if some of my apps are stored on my external SD card? Does Poweramp store the information within the app? Does it not somehow modify the data of the song in the song folders I have?

As far as i am aware, Poweramp holds albumart in a specific folder. You will find many posts on this. All track details etc are held within the mp3 tags of the track itself. However, Poweramp has a few additional bits such as rating and times played which you cannot export. Again many posts exist on this too. In response to these issues i have added functionality to New Playlist Manager to update the mp3 tags with rating. At least this way you can preserve the rating. It is hoped that the next version of Poweramp will use this rating tag.

So, i think that a reinstall may lose your ratings but not the other details.

As long as you copy all of the folders and files from your old card to the new bigger one (via a PC) before you install it on your phone, everything should remain exactly as it was before (just with more space). I don't think Android 'hides' anything beyond the normal file system that your PC can read.
