Playlist are completely empty

Free version, operating on the desktop player which has been reliable for years and all of a sudden I can't play songs that arent on one of my playlists. Then I can't make a queue. So I reinstalled the desktop player for windows and not all my playlists that I spent years making are all empy. Please, Please, Please someone help me get my music back.

Hey @jbone44 @STDIEGO

 

This a known bug with the desktop app and Spotify is investigating the issue. There is a workaround which seems to be working for some users. Can you try the following steps:

 

  1. Open Notepad as an administrator (right-click - Open as Administrator)
  2. go to File - Open and navigate to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc
  3. Choose "All Files" instead of "Text Documents" next to the File Name box. You'll see a handful of files. Pick hosts and click on Open
  4. When the file is open, you will see a block of text with # in front of each line and might see entries like 0.0.0.0 website.com127.0.0.1 website2.com
  5. Check for any entries with Spotify in the address. Examples may look like: 0.0.0.0 weblb-wg.gslb.spotify.com0.0.0.0
  6. If you do find any lines with Spotify, please remove them.
  7. Save your changes and restart Spotify.

Hope that solves the issue! Let me know if you have further questions. I hope this will get fixed on Spotify's end soon.

 

Have a nice day :)

I have the same problem. Try playing in Spotify Web Player.

spotify web player wont work either. I just did a scan of my computer to see if it was a virus issue too and it was clean.
