Thanks Peke,
On my phone, with MMA, My Sync Settings are:
SM-G930W8 Internal Storage (/storage/emulated/0)
SM-G930W8 SD Card (storage/0155-17E1)

The SD card is identified as Portable Storage within the device settings.

I did notice something potentially interesting:
On the SD card, there is a playlist called "Mobile Greg.m3u" with a create date the same as the day that I did the sync (Feb. 1). Size (19.74 kb)
On the internal storage there is a playlist called "Mobile Greg.plu" with a create date 4 days later (Feb. 5). Size (0B)

When I create a playlist manually, it is being created on the SD card. I have to create the playlist first, then add the songs to it. I cannot select songs and create a new playlist without receiving the notice of "No Valid Tracks"

Does any of this help.

Thanks for you continued support on this issue.
TIA
MPG

You only gave LOG ID in Ticket and it is not ignored Lowlander replied you here.

Is your SDCard set as Internal Or external Storage? I just tested on 3 devices and had no issues to create Playlists no matter where tracks reside.


I supplied what was asked for. What is missing?

I've tried both external and internal. Same results.

This is the exact issue.

Of course i get all indignant and then potentially solve the problem. Sorry :P

I still need to test the sync back when i get home, but i have it saving from the track to a new playlist, and that playlist is saving on the card.

Preface to this - I had 2 locations with music on my phone, 1 internal folder and 1 folder on the sd card

MPG, try this:

in MMA:
Options > General > Choose Library Folders > Delete all external storage folders. Then delete and add the folders you want to use internally (Music and playlist folder).

Options > UPnP > Download Location > Set to your internal music folder

Exit the app, reboot your phone (not sure if you need this step but i did it)

Options > General > Check for new/changed media - Let it finish, theres a spinning wheel at the top.

Exit the app, reboot your phone (not sure if you need this step but i did it)

Options > General > Choose Library Folders > Delete all internal storage folders. Then delete and add the folders you want to use under the SD card (Music and playlist folder).

Options > UPnP > Download Location > Set to your SD card music folder

Exit the app, reboot your phone (not sure if you need this step but i did it)

Options > General > Check for new/changed media (Let it finish, theres a spinning wheel at the top.)

I hope that works for you, seems to be working for me. Not sure what will happen when i sync yet. I'll update when i get home.

Sync worked!

~edit~

Sort of. Seems like when i sync it re-ads the internal library folders to the MMA library and the problem resumes.

When i remove them from Options > General > Choose Library Folders and then check for new/changed media it works again.
