Hi, I have premium account and downloaded most of my music to my SD card. I have now changed phones and moved the SD card to my new phone.

My Deezer app can't see any of the songs downloaded, but I also can't find them on the card. I want to download them again, but don't want duplicate files that are already there.

Wold the files have been deleted off the card when I removed it from my old phone? My other files are on the card as normal, I just can't find any of downloaded via Deezer App.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Hi there @Enigma80

The tracks you've downloaded are data which is part of the app on your old device - it's downloaded only to play offline, you can't 'transport' it to another device. You'll have to download them again, on your new device.

Thanks. So it won't have left any data on my SD at all? This is what I was trying to find out. I want to get rid of any unnecessary data on my SD card. I couldn't find any files relating to the app on the SD card.

Would I be correct in saying that any data relating to the Deezer app 'self deletes' once the SD is removed?

@Enigma80 I'd say so, because the storage space is only held while the app is on your device.

I see, thanks. The app is still on the old device, but I simply removed the SD card without deleting anything from the old device.

I might just copy my required files to my computer, format the card properly and then put the files back again.
