MMA loses playlist after sync [#16293]

Post by toyzrme » Wed Jan 08, 2020 5:12 pm

I watch a playlist selected on MMW get synced, and the .m3u file appears in <SDCard>\Playlists, but the playlist does not appear in the MMA UI.

Syncing to the uSD card on my Galaxy S10, roughly 163GB free.

I watched the whole sync process, including syncing the playlist itself.
I can see the playlist in \Playlists, it has the same timestamp as the other playlists which DO show, and it's 193.1k, which is in line with what I would expect.
And yet despite restarting my phone, and asking MMA to scan for new media, that playlist still does not show in the MMA UI.
Phone shows MMA was updated Nov. 26, 2019

Log ID: EFLG6WDICB (not sure if useful, given no crash)

How do I get my playlist back?
MMW: ~25,000 tracks, MM.DB on 16Gbps PCIe SSD (Samsung 950 Pro) - up-to-date, not Beta
MMA: ~12,000 tracks sync'd to phone - up-to-date, not Beta
PC: Windows 10/64, Skylake quad+HT @4.2GHz, 64GB RAM, 14TB RAID6
Phone: Galaxy S10 (128GB) + 400GB mSD card (Samsung EVO+)
Sync: all tracks rated >=3 sync'd to phone
.........all playlists only use tracks rated >=3
.........thus sync'ing is 99.99% playlist update - no tracks are sync'd, other than new purchases
Playlists: ~59 synced
..........most are auto-playlists
..........use attributes Rating, Last Played, Date recorded, Genre, Genre "contains", Path "contains"
..........many are nested, i.e. "Top AutoPlaylist" includes "Level 2 AutoPL #1" + "Level 2 AutoPL #2" etc.

I have the same problem, sometimes all lists are in one folder, without structure, sometimes there are subfolders, but they are not complete. The synchronization has been going crazy for a few weeks
"translate with google"

My Galaxy S10 is also experiencing simular syncing problems. However in my case, MM does not recognize most the songs in my playlists created from the app. (all playlists are viewable and playable in full in the vanella music app).

Trying to add songs to any of my playlists causes MM to crash and the songs that it recognizes to duplicate. This behavior is also exhibited on new playlists I create.

I first noticed this problem after I updated to Android 10. I keep my music on both a SD card and internal storage.
