Google Nexus 5 :: Why Can't Sync Music To Computer
Jun 22, 2015
I have downloaded music from google play store onto my nexus 5.however when i try to sync to my computer i cant find the playlist.when i tether my phone to the computer it should sync automatically but doesn't and i cant even find where the music went or how to get it to show up.
I've been looking for help with this for weeks now and i can't find a bit of it anywhere. I wanted to put music on my phone so i went out and bought a micro sd card and tried to load music onto it using a usb to connect to my phone. I've tried literally just about everything. I switched over to USB Mass Storage mode and created a music folder and etc, etc,. But even after i put a couple of songs on the thing my phone still says there's nothing there. I also tried doing the Nokia Ovi Suite thing and apparently my phone model isn't compatible with it. I'm completely surprised by the lack of support from the manufacturing website.
I reset my phone because after 5.1.1 update my phone battery was poor so i reset my phone copied songs from my PC to nexus 5 when i open Google play music it is unable to detect those transferred songs. when i went to ES Explorer i can able to see all the songs i copied. what should i do? one more reset? is there any way to say google play music about songs presence?
P.S i already deleted cache, cleared data of that app no use
I bought a song from the play store the other day only to find that Google Play Music will no longer play any music on my Nexus 5. I do have PowerAmp set as my default player (I think) and I cleared the GPM app cache. It should work but it doesn't play anything at all, none of my other music either.
I have a serious problem involving my music files which I have transferred via USB to my Nexus 5. After a system update to Android 5.1, my local music files still exist on the device but DO NOT show up in any music player. I have tried to use Google Play Music (my default music player) as well as other music players from the Play Store. ALL indicate that I have zero song files on my device which I know is definitely NOT true. I used to be able to play them and view all albums in Google Play Music but now the music files are ONLY accessible via ES File Explorer.

I do not wish to have to play music manually through the file explorer, and I NEED at least Google Play Music working
So in the process of attempting to fix my nexus 5's issue of saying "cannot mount cache" during a factory reset in recovery mode, it completely stopped turning on. However, when I connect it to the computer, my computer still makes a sound indicating a new device has been connected.
The device will not show anything on the screen at all. I've tried holding power, power+volume down, and power+volume down+volume up multiple times and nothings worked.
So I think something on my USB port has malfunctioned... it won't show up in the device manager when I plug it in.I have tried the sticky thread on Diagnosing USB Driver and ADB issues in Windows. I have searched the forums and internet and tried lots of driver installs and restart this and that.
Recently this started when I wanted to flash Android 6.0 to my phone. During the install with NRT after each erase and flash it would say Waiting for device, and the only way I would get it to proceed was to plug the USB and plug it back in... Now running Android 6.0 it won`t even recognize my device and won`t pop up the menu to choose your usb connection setting.I have two Nexus 7, one Nexus 7 (2013), and another Nexus 5... and they all work fine and get recognized by the computer.
Apparently I lack sufficient brainpower to do something that, in my small feeble mind, I assumed would be easy: connect my Nexus 5 to a Windows 7 PC via Bluetooth so that I can access the storage files on my Nexus. Very specific, very simple, yet it does not work. I have searched everywhere, and I do not need a tutorial on how to pair them. I have them paired. That pairing does not do anything, it has no function.
On my Nexus 5, it says it is paired to my PC. On my PC, I have a fugly *** Nokia-esque icon that has "Nexus 5" under icon listed under Bluetooth Devices. I do not understand what else I need to do?
P.S. How do I find "Bluetooth drivers"? Windows update has no clue WTF to do, and like I said, I am retarded and lack basic reading comprehension since I cannot find any information that is relevant through searching online.
When I download my photos to my computer, a few of the photos are accompanied by duplicates, each about 50KB or so. Their names do not begin with IMG, like the other photos, but are just a long string of digits. It happens with both still photos and videos, but not all of them, just about one in ten. I didn't do anything different with those photos, and can see no reason for a duplicate to be made.
Very strangely, the duplicates have different dates from the originals. For example the original was taken on 15th march, but the duplicate is dated 18th march.
This only started happening recently. Probably when I upgraded to Lollipop. What might this be?
using iTunes, you can only use one computer to sync things such as music. The computer that I was previously using with syncing died on me and now that I am on a new one it says that I have to erase everything on my iPhone just to put one mixtape on it which is complete BS. So I ask you Apple, iTunes support, or whoever, why?
I have always synced my iphone to my husband's PC since that has always been our music storage machine, but would like to sync to my macbook. I've set up itunes Match on both machines and downloaded our music to my mac - mostly itunes purchased or uploaded from CD. I hit sync and agreed to have it wipe the contents from the other computer and sync with my mac. When I do, it only copies about 100 of 1000 songs, saying it couldn't copy the others. It referred me back to itunes to find out the issue, but I couldn't find any explanation in my itunes for the problem. (The missing songs show up greyed out in the playlists on my phone). When I'm trying to set up playlists for the fitness classes.
Cracked my screen on my Nexus 5 today (squeezed it in a door). The touchscreen won't work and you can't see anything except green and red stripes on the screen. Is there any possibility to reach the files from my computer even if i can't unlock the phone with my graphical password? It runs Android 5.1 and I haven't rooted it or anything. Very desperate to reach the data on my phone, have photos, videos and a diary from my year in Australia... Should think about back-up next time!
i have blackberry curve 9220 and the BB software desktop manager is downloaded on my PC and i followed all the instructions to enable the wifi music sync but on my phone the wifi music sync is failed to connect to my computer even though i enabled the wifi connection on my phone and i am connected to my wireless network.
Someone told me that I can add songs to the purchased folder in itunes on my computer, and then download them on my iphone. I tried it once before a while ago and did not think it worked. However, earlier today I noticed a song that used to not be on my iphone, and now it is. Then I remembered that it was the song I had used to attempt to put music on my iphone via the purchased folder. The thing is, I can't figure out how I did it.
The harddrive on my old computer died.Â Now when I try to sync my iPhone to the new computer, I get a message saying that my iPhone will be overwritten with the library on the computer.Â This wouldn't be a problem except my iPhone contains songs and books that are not showing up in the computer library. How do I get my iPhone registered to the new computer without losing music and books?
I accidentally synced my iphone 4s to my sisters computer and now my computer won't recognize it and allow me to download music and photos etc. Is there some simple setting In need to do to allow my computer to recognize my iphone again?
how to sync my i phone to a new computer and i tunes without loosing my apps and music etc? i have no access to my old computer i want to back up all my apps, music contacts and pictures off my phone to I tunes on my new laptop?
When i'm on the road with my scooter atm i can't listen to any music. Currently using default Play Music app but that doesn't support the bluetooth profile HFP (Hands Free Profile). So i'm looking for an mp3 music player that does (pref adfree free, paid can work too) but it MUST support the HFP profile for my helmet bluetooth scala rider. It's an older model that doesn't support A2DP.
Posting this here cause i've got no clue what to use, if such a thing exists at all.A bonus would be that navigation instructions (navigon europe over HFP) still come through. Not asking for what's best etc, just curious if such a thing exists. I'll make my own choice afterwards. Free (no ads) if possible, paid is an option too.
This morning (19 March 2015), my Nexus 5 updated its Google Play Music App to v 5.8.1836R.1787745. Now, once I start the thing, it won't stop. Yes. It stops playing music. But, the app continues to sit in the notification area when I drag down from the top, the Bluetooth "headphones" icon won't go away, and the phone starts to heat up at the top back. How to go back to the old behavior of it just going away when I'm done with it?
I activated the setting that allows syncing of photos only via charger and wifi. Due to the fact that i charge my phone at night its quite annoying that i get a notification at two in the morning. How do i cancel this specific notification?
