I just had to do a phone reset on my Galaxy S5 and am now syncing my music. What took 4hrs before to sync 12,000 songs is now at 21hrs and still going. It's about 80% done. If the Galaxy S5 is supposed to be USB 3.0, my Asus m-board has USB 3.0 and I have a 64g Class 10 microSD card, why is it taking this long?? Can I (in the future) just pull the sdcard, use my USB 3.0 reader and dump the music into any certain folder and have DoubleTwist pick them up when I put the card back in?
This is ridiculous! :-(

Can't find my music. Hello. I am running doubletwist pro on a rooted 4.4.2 galaxy s5. I have over 1000 songs downloaded from google music onto a 64 gig micro SD card. Using the root browser application, I have accessed the music, deleted the nomedia file, and moved it to several locations, including the parent folder for the SD card, doubletwists folder within the SD card and basically everything else. I have the app set to the SD card. Many posts that I have read said that music from google play needs to be pinned but in my applications I just see a download symbol, and it does not do the things that pinning supposedly would. Any suggestions on how to make my phone regognize the music would be helpful

I've got the paid version on my Note 3. Two things are frustrating me. Firstly I cannot delete any music. It just reappears. I took hours cleaning up and the deleted songs or albums reloaded into the library. Second, when opening the equaliser, the sound gets softer and I haven't even switched it on. When I do switch it on, there is no noticeable difference when moving the sliders.

I'm having a problem with double twist Pro. I have a Note 2 running android 4.4.2. and XP SP3 on the desktop. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the latest versions of AirSync, doubleTwist Pro and the doubleTwist Desktop. I have run the SD Scanner app as per the kitkat SD card instructions. 

The problem: 
Playlists created in iTunes are correctly appearing, with the songs and selected order in the doubleTwist desktop. However, when I sync the playlist to doubleTwist on my phone, some songs are removed from the play list. The songs in question are in the doubleTwist library and I can play the songs using the doubleTwist player.

Thank you Henry. I thought I had purged the desktop already, but still found more files where you suggested to look.  I'll try that and let you know how it goes.

I like doubletwist. It's the only music player that syncs my music properly. BUT it takes literally hours to sync, at least two. This is the case even if I'm only updating a single playlist. I'm using USB, not WiFi. Has anyone else had this issue and found a way to resolve it?

My playlists are only about 20 songs, 50 at most. I think I have about 15 playlists.

I own doubleTwist and AirSync.  I have an app called Vonage Extensions to route my "land-line" VoIP calls to my Samsung Galaxy S5.  When the Extensions apps is turned on by a incoming call, so does doubleTwist.  It seems that somehow Vonage Extension makes doubleTwist start, and doubleTwist will play the song that was last played before it was shut down.

I need to know if someone out there is experiencing this.  More importantly, whether doubleTwist has a setting that has it be the default mp3 player, as I think this might be the reason of the problem:  Vonage uses the default ring to signal and incoming call, as the ring is an mp3, doubleTwist opens up to play the ring.

Hello,

Thanks for the report. We haven't had any other users report this problem with the Vonage Extensions app but I will ask the QA/Dev team to investigate.

You can clear defaults by going into Android Settings and into the Application Manager. If you go into an app, there should should be a "Launch by default" section. Use "Clear defaults" to erase any defaults set.

We can also take a look at the logs to see if there is additional information.

1. Reproduce the problem.
2. Then immediately go into doubleTwist Settings.
3. Scroll down to select "Send Log Files" and tap "Continue".
4. Enter "DT Issue 20150227a" in the description text and tap "Send Logs" to email the logs to us.

Thanks,
Henry

I have a Samsung Tab 4 with 64gb of external storage that i synced my itunes library to with no problems.  I uploaded about 55gb of music to it.  However, when i open the app, it is very slow.  After a brief period of time, i will get an error message that says "Doubletwist is not responding" so i can either "wait" for it to respond or "close".  I waited to no avail.  I closed DB and now i cant even get it to open to see my music anymore.  Any idea's of what i can do?  Google play music and samsung's music player work fine.  Thanks.

Hello Ken,

I'm sorry that you're still experiencing problems.

No songs are seen even after a database reset? That's odd.

Does Google Play Music see these songs?

You can try a manual rescan of the doubleTwist folder using something like SD Scanner.

https://www.doubletwist.com/help/question/what-are-the-changes-to-sd-card-support-in-android-44-kitkat/#sd

This will add all of the music files in the doubleTwist folder into the AMS, which is what our app uses to rebuild the database after a reset.

Thanks,
Henry

Hello +David King,

An EQ is included as part of doubleTwist Pro.

You can access the EQ via a few different methods.

Ack! I have a brand new Galaxy S5. I tried double twist unsuccessfully with my S3 last year, but the sales guy at my local big box store assured me that double twist is the way to go to sync my iTunes to my new phone. I shelled out $5 for the air sync, redownloaded doubletwist on my laptop (I'd deleted it a while back) I'm getting the same problem I had before... it gets stuck loading my library. My iTunes library is medium-sized... 16 GB. I don't even want to sync all of it. Just want to be able to listen to my favorites on my phone. HELP!!!!

I never had any luck with the air sync especially when trying to sync massive amounts of songs. I always sync with USB and it works perfectly and I have a galaxy S5. In the settings on your phone turn off air sync in the app settings. Reset the database also in settings. Then connect to your PC via USB. You might have to uninstall and reinstall the app on your phone. Just make sure that you set it to not sync over air sync set it to USB.

Won't recognize my Galaxy S-5. When downloading my Mac couldn't find a web browser bundle. My screen doesn't have the tabs for selecting devices or music files.

If I want to change the song order of a playlist on my phone, the order messes up unless I'm moving songs further down in the playlist. this gets really annoying because I don't want to have to move, like, 20+ songs when I only want to move one

okay scratch that, I can't edit my playlists at all without it screwing up, and this is extremely frustrating and it's honestly making me want to look into alternatives to doubletwist.

Is it possible to sync my iTunes podcast subscriptions using the new doubleTwist Sync app for Windows? The problem is I can only sync the downloaded podcast but not the entire list of my subscribed podcast from iTunes. I hope this is possible with this app so that I can automatically view my subscriptions in my android device (Galaxy Note 2) as well without adding my favorite podcast channel again one by one.

Can't seem to figure this out.....I want to play all my iTunes library content on my android phone OVER MY WIFI (I do not want it sync'd or copied to my android phone).  Kind of like how SONOS accesses my music?  Is this possible?

Hello,

Our sync app does not currently access songs from over a network share or from the Cloud. It can only play songs that are stored locally on the device.

This "playback from remote sources" feature has been suggested by other users so we are investigating it for the future roadmap.

Feedback like yours helps us to prioritize our future development plans. I've sent your comments on to our product manager.

Thanks,
Henry

when I play a record with mixed songs (a live album for example) doubletwist insert a gap in the track change that isn't there.
I did try the standard android player and that don't happen.
help please....!

Hello Rui,

Thanks for the feedback.

Gapless support has been a popular request so it's something that we're working to add in a future update.

Hi again, any word on getting ALAC support? I was told that doubletwist was the best app for people coming over from iphone. I dont want to transcode as I want the files to remain lossless. I also dont want to convert to wav or flac as the music is fully tagged etc in itunes.
