My Question or Issue

 I keep getting the message "Spotify can't play this right now. If you have the file on your computer you can import it." on most artist. Not all but some. 

Why is this even happening, i bought the **bleep** premium for a reason. And all these songs have worked before.

Hey @PlaZooM,


I know it sounds simple, but it's often overlooked. Could you try restarting your device? If that doesn't help, try a quick clean reinstall of the app. Just follow these steps.

If you're still having trouble, could you let me know the exact version of Spotify?

I'll see what I can suggest next!

My "device" is a PC with windows 8.1. 
It has not been resolved by rebooting or reinstalling Spotify. 

And as for the version, I can't seem to find it. So the only answer I can give you is the latest version from Spotifys website.
