Tracks downloaded from Amazon music are not picked up by MMA

Post by calonzo »

I recently moved my Music folder from Internal Storage to SD Card on my Galaxy S9.

I occasionally will download music from the Amazon Music app. When I downloaded music when I was using Internal Storage, MMA used to pickup the new tracks.

Since I moved to the SD card, I did tell Amazon Music app to download the tracks to the SD card, but it does not give you a choice of folders. It downloads them to SD Card/Android/media/com.amazon.mp3/

When I go the Library folder settings in MMA and browse SD Card, I do not see this folder. Is there a way to see it? Or is my only choice to pick the entire SD Card?

Thanks. I am using the Samsung "My Files" utility. I have the "Show hidden system files set" to ON. But I do not see that file in that folder or the parent folder.

Do I need a different utility to see it?

Hi,
On my Moto X4 it shows .nomedia
Try to Create .nomedia file in that folder and see if it works, also if you use MMA Folders browser and navigate storage to /Android/media/com.amazon.mp3/ do you see any files?

"Try to Create .nomedia file in that folder and see if it works,"

Why would I create that file, if that file does the opposite of what I want?

"also if you use MMA Folders browser and navigate storage to /Android/media/com.amazon.mp3/ do you see any files?"

That is what I am doing and I can't see that folder. In fact, I can't even see the Android folder.

What tool do you use to see the '.nomedia' file?

Which version of Android?

I don't know if this ever got resolved but Android at some point limited Apps from seeing files from other Apps.

If file exist you will get warning taht file already exist and prompt to overwrite, if not you simply delete it.

Yeah, forgot that at one point Android tried to do that, Just tested and as said MMA Folders browser easily accessed Android folder (my OS version is Pie)

I have Android version 10.

How do I create a file in a particular folder?

In MMA, if I select the entire SD card, it finds the music in the Amazon folder. It's only a browse issue

Hi,
Are you saying that you can't select Folder in MMA and Add them to library like I did in THIS VIDEO?
