Poweramp displaced by Music Player

Recommended Posts

I have used the unlocked Poweramp for several years and have it in a new phone running on Lollipop which I bought this week. My music collection is on the SD. Today I downloaded Marshmallow and then found that all my mp3s were no longer visible in Poweramp. I found the files were visible to the music player that came with the phone, Music Player so I know I don't have to get them out of the computer again, but I'm annoyed that the download has tampered with my setup. 

I'd appreciate finding out how I can get the files accessible by Powerpoint again.

Update: I have worked on the Bluetooth connection to my stereo and started playing using Music Player. Immediately felt the loss of my presets. However I then opened Poweramp again and to my surprise all my files had become available. So I went from having 128 files to 1455 and my problem is solved. However I still think the incident should not have happened.

You will never be able to access them in Powerpoint ? but Poweramp wants to know where to look. Settings, Folders and Library, Music folders. Only select the ones which are relevant.

It was probably Marshmallow changing the directory name for your external card, it's a real pain when it does that during an upgrade on an existing device. Very bad design.
