    Groove Music not syncing Pass collection

    Since updating to Windows 10 (and Groove Music from Xbox Music) my cloud collection is not syncing. I have a huge collection of songs in the cloud (not on OneDrive) thanks to my music pass, but none of them are syncing. I can access my full collection
    on the web and on my phone but not on the Groove Music app. Does anyone know any solutions for this problem, or how to force a manual sync through the Groove Music app?

    Access your music collection from OneDrive with Xbox Music app

    windows phone xbox music and onedrive

    since the integration of the xbox mobile music app and onedrive it is said to be that you can place your music in the onedrive music folder and then access that music on a mobile device using the xbox music app. I am unable to access that music on onedrive
    using the xbox mobile app, however I can play the music that's in the onedrive music folder by opening one drive taping on a song to play and this song will then play on the xbox music app. my question is am I supposed to be able to access this music on onedrive
    in the music folder through the xbox mobile music app. so in other words am I supposed to be able to open the xbox mobile music app and be able to see the songs that I have placed in the onedrive music folder, if so how because I am unable to see these songs.
    I am using the nokia lumia icon with windows 8.1

    This is good news for me, I love my music, I don't know why Microsoft couldn't have just pointed Onedrive to the Music folder but who cares this will do me.

    In some areas I'm still behind the times. All my music is still on cds or vinyl. *Smile

    One of my main obsessions with computers is to get everything digital, movies, videos and music. I couldn't wait to get off vinyl with all the hissing popping and rumbling and I had some pretty expensive gear. Even when I buy a Blu Ray movie I rip it straight onto my NAS and stream it from there.

    I'm in no hurry to digitize my music. I haven't listened to my records in years. As for my cds, I rarely listen to them in the house. I mainly listen to them when I'm driving and both of my vehicles have cd players.

    When I jump in my car, my radio senses my phone and then I play the music off that, or I burn a whole lot of mp3s onto a disc and play that.

    My radios don't have bluetooth or any other way to connect to my phone. I not sure if they will play mp3s or not I'll have to try it someday. That would be nice on long trips.

  13. Access your music collection from OneDrive with Xbox Music app

    another disappointing change for me from MS, don't know why they cant just add new features (like this one) without removing others

    I relied on the auto music matching to get my music on all devices, now to do the same I have to upload it all to onedrive, as I don't have broadband capable of this not sure whether to stick with xbox music anymore *Sad

    Yes, I have been digitizing my music collection for about 5 years (I'm almost done) and I have about 7 terabytes of high fidelity music files on my computer. Playing files straight from computer to a high fidelity USB DAC like this straight to my stereo has made my life so much easier.

    Hi there

    Although "I'm almost retired" now -- one of my biggest money makers is STILL in cutting VINYL for people --I still have to use an XP VM for this - but they love the customised records and personalised labels I can make for them. I even get demands for 78 RPM's which can still be played on "Wind up gramophones".

    It's quite fun though creating a 78 RPM for someone of a RAP record -- probably the "Rapper" wasn't even born when the 78 RPM died. (Although I prefer Classical music myself -- well give the customer what they want !!!).

    The biggest problem was actually sourcing the Blanks -- now though they are easy to get hold of. Vinyl has been a total surprise to me --there's a HUGE and growing demand for it -- even in this digital age. !!!!

    @all music lovers -- forget loss compressed mp3's -- FLAC can be handled and played by most decent music players -- even some smart phones have a decent enough quality DAC in them to handle FLAC. The cost of storage is really MINIMAL these days -- no reason to accept anything but the BEST quality for your music.

    For copying on to a small SD card for portable devices and those hideous bud earphones --you can create mp3 versions from the FLAC - but it doesn't work properly the other way around. FLAC works, is reasonably LOSSELESSLY stored on HDD's , is NOT a proprietary format and you keep the ORIGINAL music.

    I love listening to High Quality audio -- my reference speakers at home cost probably 2,000 USD a pop -- but I still get that great feeling when you hear a high quality VINYL record -- somehow there's something missing in the whole digital experience. -- I suppose it's a bit like saying how is a STRAD violin different to a top quality modern instrument -- scientific analysis of the sound waves etc can show the modern instrument faithfully creates the music better but I don't believe any violinist on this planet would refuse the chance to play a STRAD, and I'm sure concert goers would pay a premium to hear a violinist playing a STRAD.

    For those of us who have missed out on the whole classical experience -- start with this :
