can't download own MP3

Hey,

i got a new mobile phone, a Meizu Pro 5, which uses Flyme 5.1.4.0A (which is based on Android 5.1) as OS, but now i'm encountering a problem (not only on my Meizu, as well on my Sony Xperia T):

i cant download my own mp3 files for my offline playlists which is a serious problem for me, since i use a lot of mp3s in my playlists.. how do i use mp3s from my computer on my mobile phone? i searched around a lot and tried everything i found but nothing made it work..

Please read the support topic here for assistance setting up local file sync: Listen to local files

Make sure that you are on the same WiFi network and Windows & third party firewalls are configured to allow the Spotify connection through.

Another point to note is that sometimes if a track is stored locally & is also available to stream then when you sync to your device it will automatically use the Spotify streaming version but the data from your playlist. If for some reason the metadata such as track length differs this can cause conflict and break the track. In this instance you are best off removing the local file from your playlist on the desktop and adding the track from the Spotify server then re-sync. This should fix this issue.
