Downloaded Spotify playlists vanishing
English

I've noticed in the last couple of weeks two, and on all occasions only the same two playlists have become "undownloaded" onto my S2. I've downloaded the both 4 times now, and on the last three occasions it took only a couple of minutes to donwload around 20 tracks at extreme quality.

This suggests that the files are not wiped off the phone, but somehow not registered as downloaded - I notice that if you undownload a file it doesnt appear to erase it, merely mark the phone memory as "free" and available space to be written to.

I'm wondering if this is a spotify problem, since no other playlists exhibit this behaviour, in addition, I have deleted more than the equivalent number of tracks in case it was a memory issue on the phone, though according to task manager I'm using around 2/3 or all availabale phone / sd card memory.

This is pretty p*** poor I'm afraid. I've had this problem for three weeks now and the only reason I pay for premium is sync tracks to my phone to be able to play offline. To post a solution that is a customers workaround is laughable.

Maybe the Music Gods are trying to direct your interests elsewhere - what were the playlists?

NME's most uplifting 50 tracks (there were 44....)

a playlist called New Stuff to Listen To. Mostly a bunch of porcupine tree stuff, but self explanatory.

I have lost my playlists a couple of times, once my fault, once something happened during an update. A request on the Spotify website forum and they were returned Smile

I tweeted spotify support, they confirmed it's a known issue and to be patient for a fix.

 

OK, 3 weeks in......
