My Question or Issue

 I recently bought In the Court of the Crimson King by King Crimson through iTunes, which isn't available on Spotify. Through local files, I can play the songs on my computer, however I want to also be able to play it on my iPhone. I've made a playlist with all of the songs in it and attempted to download it via my computer, but next to the "download" switch, all it says is "Waiting..." and when I try to play any of the songs on my phone it says "Song Not Downloaded: If you own the song, you can sync it from your computer." Is there a way for me to be able to download the songs onto my iPhone or did I just waste $12?

Hi @rpkelley, thanks for writing!

 

If you have a PC, please check Windows firewall or if you have a anti-virus suite running that includeds a firewall, make sure to allow spotify.exe through. Under Windows Firewall there are two spotify.exe apps listed, one is checked for public networks and one for private networks. Put a check mark next to them both and click OK at the bottom.

 

Your local files should start syncing now.

 

Let me know how it goes!
