As of today I'm getting this error when trying to play any song from my Windows PC (Lenovo):
"This song is not available. If you have the file on your computer you can import it"
The song will play for a brief moment, not even a second, then the sound will cut and the above pop-up will appear ~5s later.
Trying the Web Player has a separate issue, where the songs skip from one to the next, only playing ~5s worth.
Spotify had been working well on this PC and still works flawlessly on my phone and other computers, so I don't believe this is related to my account. I have also had a friend sign-in on my Lenovo and they experience the same issue. On the Lenovo, I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling, as well as deleting cache files from Local and Roaming AppData, without success. I also tried toggling 'Offline Mode' as I found this a solution for another user.
After attempting the 'Spotify fixes' I found online I re-installed audio drivers on my computer and made sure everything was fully updated directly from Lenovo.
Unfortunately nothing I have tried works and I was hoping for something else I might have overlooked before thinking about reformatting.
Thanks in advance for any responses!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Found the issue, turned out to be a 'flapping' audio device. Completely disabled everything in Playback Devices but what I wanted, and Spotify is working well again.
Posting this in case someone else has the same problem.
