Whatever I try the pathway just won't be excepted!! 

 

Tried unistalling then reinstalling Spotify each time I enter a new pathway.

Cleared  'Saved Data' first before entering pathway

Entered:  /mnt/sdcard/external_sd

 

RESULT: No such folder - The path you enter must exist

 

Perhaps I should ditch Android and Spotify altogether and just buy a bloody iPhone like everyone else, as at least both the phones and apps work properly and don't require 'human intervention' to resolve pathetic issues like this!

Is it case sensitive?

Yes it is case sensitive, as usual on linux systems. 

 

btw. i am on 30 premium test days. i love the service and the app etc. it rocks and is actually worth its money i guess. but im not sure if i want to support this attitude of spotify? Seems they wanna force people to use internal storage so they can not download as many songs? or is it just a bug? i mean, its actually a matter of some minutes to fix this AFAIK. So where is the problem then?

Spotify have stated that this will be resolved in the next release. No.idea when it will be released though - android releases are not as frequent as iOS ones

Hi there,

 

Not according to the reply I received from Spotify a few days ago?  

 

Please note the words: 'Possible'  'May' and 'If or when', all fairly negative words and not really what I would term as a positive response to the problem.

Hello there,

Thanks for getting in touch with us

It's not currently possible to store your Spotify data on an external SD card, however this is a feature that has been requested a few times in our community forums, so it's possible that it may appear in a future update of the app, although I couldn't say for certain if or when this would happen.

I'd recommend having a look at the forums, which is a great place to share and vote for ideas and features you'd like to see in Spotify.

community.spotify.com

You'll be able to vote for ideas that others have already suggested, to help show the developers how popular these ideas really are.

If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to let us know.

All the best, 

Danielle

Officially spotify staff are not allowed to comment on future features or releases dates. However one of the mods on this board stated that thus feature would be in the next release.

For those of us with next to no onboard storage and 32GB SD cards this is so frustrating.

 

The update needs to come sooner rather than later.

 

What were they thinking taking it out?

I think this is a slipup like the loosing of the Screen Rotation / Landscape feature when device is docked. I get the frustration. My old device Desire was running out of space all the time. After setting stuff going to SD card it was Ok. For now I think it might still work to install the older version - point the sd card location where to sync the files - upgrade the spotify client from google play store - and sync the data.

Sure this is no permanent solution, but a work-a-round till the new app is released. I hope this is a priority to implement, but time will tell.
