Hello,

 

I can't sync local files from my Mac to my Adroid Galaxy S3.  I've created a local playlist and tried downloading them in offline mode, but my mobile app says my local tracks are not available?  It shows the tracks but has them faded in gray.  I've also moved the local files from my Mac to my Galaxy S3's external SD card and no dice.  My Galaxy S3 does not show up in my Mac desktop app under "Devices".  My Mac and Droid are on the same wifi network.

 

Any help is much appreciated!

Having an issue syncing my local files from my Mac to my iPhone. Both are connected to the same network. My iPhone is not showing up under my 'Devices' in the Spotify app on my Mac. I've purchased music on iTunes. It shows up in my Local Files folder in Spotify (on my Mac). I drag those files to a new Playlist and make it available Offline. I go on my phone and it says the files are not synced.

Have you disabled any firewalls and made sure uPnP is enabled on your router?

So I am having trouble syncing some songs. See I have a whole bunch of songs that are not hooking up to the songs on spotify and I'm not sure how to fix that. If someone could tell me how that would be great. See the thing is, the used to be able to hook up to the song on spotify now they aren't. Some apparently don't have albums yet usually the ones without albums will automatically get one when I put them on spotify and I will be able to view the album, the artist and whatnot. What do I do because it is pretty annoying

I have the same problem every so often when I reinstall spotify or when I restore my iphone. Some of my tracks sync and some don't and I own all of them. One of the most important things to remember is to set your iphone/ipod to "never sleep" when you are syncing ( I believe someone mentioned that also) in settings, general, autolock. Another thing to remember is that if you are using the device as you are syncing to periodically go back to the Spotify app so it isnt backgrounded too long. They used to have a pop up warning that let us know spotify has paused its syncing, but I havent seen that in a while. 

Toggling  the offline/online switch on both the desktop spotify and on my phone sometimes does the trick too. Also make sure you're on the same wii network and that your device is showing up under "devices" in the upper left hand side of the desktop panel. I was toggling and clicking and just noticed that my device was not there even though both laptop and phone are on the same network. I then turned wifi off my phone for a second and then back on, and it suddenly showed up and started syncing the rest of my playlist.  If that still doesn't work, try turning wifi off the computer too and see if that helps. 

I hope this helps, I know it is very frustrating. Good luck everyone!

My problem is kind of the samy

 

I got a lot of local files, more then I have space on my ipod. So I don't want to synchronize my local files from my PC to my iPod. But everytime I uncheck the local files sound list Spotify stops working with an error and closes. Is there a possibility to uncheck this sound list in an confg file or somewhere else?

Hey @Hergi . From other posts I've seen, just let it synch until it runs out of space then synching will stop and you can select the playlists you actually want on your ipod.

No, if it finished and I uncheck the list Spotify closes immediately and after a new start it's checked again :-(

Solution!
