pois é, sincroniza (pela usb) só que...

Só que toda a hora ele se embaralha com os arquivos. A cada sincronização ele não reconhece alguma porção dos arquivos que ele acabou de sincronizar.

Too bad I find this out after the fact... Oh and add another problem to the mix, if your music files are on the SD card, Winamp doesn't update the play counts.

Experiencing this on the Motorola Atrix 4G too - is there a way to fix this so it appears similarly to the Samsung Galaxy S?

Thanks

Bump for I have the same problem.
Can't be that hard to change the source code so that the user can decide which folders the wifi sync should use.

Changing source code is not that difficult. Winamp for android team just doesn't care for users... If You looked upon what they are doing, You would see they only try to make app as wide accessible as possible to the new users and pay NO ATTENTION to users they already have. 95% of changes in each version are changes towards ICS users, only absolute minority of changes are dedictated bug fixes or introducing a new function.

This topic has been here with ABSOLUTELY no responce from Winamp for almost year now. So fot those hoping something would finally change one day - stop deceiving Yourself....

I registered on this forum purely to jump on the bandwagon of much frustration at this issue.

I used to use Winamp years and years ago, and have just come back to using since getting a Galaxy SII. But this is a dealbreaker. Wifi Sync to an external SD card is pretty much the defining reason I use Winamp.

I can't believe such an obvious issue dates back over a year on these forums with no fix. What the hell Winamp!?

A Cheapo Chinese Android tablet that works well. On that Android device the External SD card is at /mnt/extern_sd

I came here for a solution to the same problem. I hopeful that a year of pondering the issue means a solution is right around the corner.

Please help!

Any way to wirelessly sync to a SD card yet? Since these cards tend to have more space than the built in storage (which is used for apps and photos etc) it seems it should definitely be an option. The now defunct musicwithme app synced to SD cards.

A possible solution to fix this issue on all Samsung Galaxy S series phones (or others who have two flash devices (internal sd and external sd) ) :

Get the external drive using the existing method which I believe is
code:
Environment.getExternalStorageState()

This should return /mnt/sdcard
Check if there exists a folder called external_sd in the returned path (/mnt/sdcard/external_sd
If such a folder exists, it means the phone mounts an external memory at /sdcard/external_sd
This folder can be used to store music (Music) folder

If such folder does not exist, then /sdcard can be used as is existing.

Best solution is to give user a choice for a default music folder for winamp and users can themselves choose /mnt/sdcard/external_sd. If user hasn't chosen a location, then winamp can continue using default.

Some info about folder structure for developers if needed (I have samsung galaxy s phone)
code:
~ # cd /
~ # ls -l | grep sd
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 23 Jul 6 10:33 sd -> /mnt/sdcard/external_sd
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 11 Jul 6 10:33 sdcard -> /mnt/sdcard
~ # ls /mnt/sdcard/external_sd | grep -i music
Music
~ #



This link would help too http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5...-card-location

Please let me know if any more information about my device is needed.

[ROOTED ONLY] Dirty dirty dirty but (almost) working workaround

Hello,

Googling and googling for help on how to get winamp to transfer to external sd card on my Lg optimus 3d (device where both sd cards are displayed separately in windows and where in android the real external to phone (swappable) device is located under /sdcard/_ExternalSD)

I finally found a solution that seems to work with ROOTED phones only. A guy that was very frustrated because all apps where writing to internal sd card and not external made a little app for rooted phones called DiretoryBind. Just from the name you can tell what it does, it binds a diretory of your internal sd card to a directory in your external sd card so that when the app thinks it's writing to the internal sd card it gets in fact redirected to the external one.

you can download it here : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1410262

Steps to take :

1. Locate the folder where winamp wireless sync saves your music usually
2. Create a folder on your EXTERNAL sd card where you REALLY want your music to be saved
3. Download and install DirectoryBind from link (version0.2.0o seems to work well for me)
4. GRANT ROOT ACCESS
5. Click at the bottom right corner on activate
6. Menu Add new entry
7. In the source path enter the place where you want your data TO BE REALLY SAVED (the external SD path for me it was /mtn/sdcard/_ExternalSD/Musique on an optimus 3d )
8. In the mount/target path enter the place where THE APPS thinks it's writing (this path will "stay empty") mine ws /mnt/sdcard/Music wich seems to be the default winamp for android path
8. Click on Transfer files from target to data (the apps warns you but target must contain files and data must be empty
9. click on add
On your main screen click on the drive icon to make it green and the redirect should be ok

It is currently transferring music via wifi and only my external sd free space seems to go down in the Sd card and memory menu of my android phone so everything looks good so far

Also, winamp is telling me that there was not enough space to copy all music and that I have to use auto fill because it's the internal memory usage that is displayed. I'm going to see if the auto fill can be run once again when winamp will detect that files are already in this folder but that it still has place to put them on the phone.

-- Known bugs --

winamp seems to detect the music it has transferred as music not in your library, so select leave them to make sure they don't get deleted. Hope it won't create any duplicates on the phone tough..

Gonna finish my transfer and see what it gives and i'll keep you up to date

note to winamp devs : seriously consider integrating a non-root fix for this or at least to integrate this fix or you'll losse many other to wired transfer or to paid apps wich aren't as good on windows then your is.

Guys, as Winamp doesn't give a shit to fix this issue, I found solution on my own. Acctualy, the solution was created by xda-dev members so all credits go there.
Here is the thread which I used: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...6#post30291586.
In shorts, by changing few lines in vold.fstab file which is placed in /system/etc folder, You swap internal and external cards. It's acctualy very simple but You have to pay attention to use appropriate file. The link provided above is for samsung s sl (i9003) at gingerbread ONLY! If You have other phone or android version, look for same thread but on Yours phone forum! Read instruction provided there through not to get Yourself in trouble.

After applying this, winamp wirelessly sync all music to your external sd card. Works as promised, just give it a try.

Best Regards,
Robert

Talking I got it to work!

Hey all.

I noticed many folks here struggling to sync winamp with an external SD memory card. I had the same problem. Winamp kept syncing to my Samsung S2's internal on board memory. Super frustrating...

The GOOD NEWS is that I found a really simple fix!!

Basically by default your phone will install any app to the internal memory. This is the problem. To fix this, simply make sure the winamp app is running from your sd card instead of your onboard memory.

For those of you who don't know how to do this:

1: Install android assistant(free):
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...3NtYW5hZ2VyIl0.

2: Go to the "tools" tab

3: Click the "app to SD" button.

4:Select winamp

5: Restart your phone (i don't know if this is needed but it's what i did )

6: try again...

Happy wireless syncing!!

You don't need that app in order to move apps to the SD card. All that app is doing is providing a link to a setting that already exists in the Android settings. It can be found by Settings --> Applications --> Manage applications --> All --> name of app --> Move to SD card.

I've tried it the way I suggested, and using the method I outlined above. And neither were successful for me. Android 2.3.6, Samsung Galaxy W.

Lets take a wild stab at a guess... masonmaverick wrote the app and is posting here promoting it? Otherwise it would be a little odd for someone to post a "solution" that doesn't actually work.

Even my cheapo Chinese Knock-off Android Tablet has that option in an easy to find location...

+1 on this problem

my "solution" so far has been so move the files from the internal to the external sd card using a file explorer tool... winamp still seems to recognize them on their new location so they don't get copied again; it's just a pain to keep having to manually move files after each wireless sync.

Yep it sucks! I see there is still no fix out for this. I would really like to see a fix as it is a great feature to sync like this but it would be even greater if it is to my SD card.

March 2013.... and still no change.

Basically, wifi transfer is useless on my Galaxy S3 since it can only access the phone storage, not the SD storage.

September 2013 and this still seems to be in the same state. Or has anyone found a solution?

It would be very convenient for me to be able to use Wi-Fi to sync with my Samsung Galaxy S4's 64GB SD card, rather that the 9GB of internal memory I also am now forced to store all of my applications (w/o rooting).

The workaround appears to be to use the USB connection, but this is problematic for me. Once I load all the songs to my device, future syncs take hours as the "Card" device doesn't appear in Winamp's devices list for a very long time. I am guessing it gets hung up because it is reading through all of the song data on the card. Oddly enough if I use the Wi-Fi feature it is instantly aware of what songs are on the device's SD card.

Correct me if I'm wrong but it seems trivial to me to enhance Winamp by allowing the user to specify what path to sync to on the device. Maybe this could be placed in an "Advanced" tab under the device's properties.

wifi will only sync to default storage on any device running android 3 or higher
as the default store is internal memory
there is no real work around with wifi
the only way to get files to store on external drive is to sync with the usb cable the phone came with
or move the files from internal to external
after you sync through wifi

thanks rob

As a follow-up I have abandoned using Winamp's Android sync altogether and have written my own PC software for syncing which utilizes the WiFi File Transfer Android application for data transmission. I was having many frustrations trying to sync via a USB cable and MTP on Windows Vista; it was a very unreliable connection.

Sometimes you just have to do things yourself :-(

Still use Winamp to play music on my PC and Galaxy S4 though! Best media player for FLAC I've found!
