Sonos was unable to add the music folder (or any other folder)
Using version S1 it will not work. Followed directions posted here and it still doesn’t work. Also, Sonos is not showing up in Airplay also. Just like white wine the product is getting worse over time not better! Owner it for more than 10 years
Sonos won't connect to TP-Link Archer AX6000
Hi Recently changed my router from a Linksys WRT1900ACS running Luci firmware to a TP link Archer AX6000 - my Sonos speakers refuse to connect to the 2.4GHz wifi on the AX6000. Sonos kit: 2x One, 1x One SL, 1 x Play:1, 1x Ikea Symfonisk bookshelf - I’ve upgraded to S2. All my non-Sonos 2.4GHz kit works fine with the new router. I’m running with duplicate SSIDs for 2.4 and 5 GHz I’ve tried with and without smartconnect. I’ve also tried setting up a totally new 2.4 GHz SSID. I’ve tried turning AP isolation on and off (usually off on my non guest networks). Speaker location isn’t an issue here - I’ve been trying the below with the speakers a short distance from the router. Tried the following via the app: Going through the ‘changed router/wifi settings’ journey Wiping the app and factory resetting the speakers. Joining the speakers using the ‘accessory configuration’ process (Apple native) Joining the speakers using the ‘select SSID and type in password’ process Connecting
Netgear GS724Tv4 - Data Storms
My home network uses a Netgear GS724Tv4 managed switch.My Sonos gear comprises:Connect: Bedroom, Series ID: C100, WM: 0. OTP: 1.1.1(1-17-5-zp90-2.1) Play:3: Kitchen, Series ID: A100, WM: 0, OTP: Beam: Sitting Room, Series ID: A100, Audio In: , WM: 0 Play:1: Sitting Room (RS), Series ID: A200, WM: 0 Play:1: Sitting Room (LS), Series ID: A101, WM: 0, OTP: Sub: Sitting Room, Series ID: A101, WM: 0, OTP: This all works beautifully. But in my garden shed (connected via a 50m ethernet cable to the managed switch) I also have 2 Sonos 5’s (wired daisy chain).I seem to be suffering data storms as the 5’s keep disappearing.

iTunes Playlists not syncing to Sonos
I have recently switched from a Mac to a PC running Windows 10.I was able to successfully transfer all of my music and playlists from my MAC Itunes to the PC Itunes.I installed Sonos and synced it to Itunes.All of my music has synced to Sonos (in Artists, Albums, Genre, etc), but the issue is not a single playlist has synced over.I live and die by these playlists. They are an artistic outlet for me and I spend a lot of time creating them. They are what I listen to 99% of the time. Can you help me get them into Sonos please? I’ve been trying for a week, googling and searching, but nothing has helped. Gene
Amazon Music, Spotify and radio will only play on Sonos One when in group

If I try to play any of these streams only on the One it errors with ‘unable to play xxxx. Unable to connect to xxxx’my system is:ZP100 (wired)ZP80 (wired)Play5 (wired)One (wireless)Any ideas why this is happening?is it something to do with the One being in a system of legacy products?
How do I make Sonos index my Podcasts under OSX Catalina?
I’ve been having a problem with Sonos not being able to index my podcasts since I upgraded my OSX to Catalina. (I’m currently running 10.15.6.) I’m getting the error message “Sonos was unable to add the music folder.” Under Catalina, Apple introduced the new Podcasts app and changed the location where podcast files are stored. On my iMac, podcasts are now stored at “/Users/me/Library/Group Containers/243LU875E5.groups.com.apple.podcasts/Library/Cache”. When I try to add that folder to the Sonos Music Library, I get the error. My music is still being indexed just fine as far as I can tell. My firewall is turned on and allows the “Sonos S1 Controller.app” incoming connections. Has anyone else had this problem? Can you tell me how to fix it?
Grouping speakers "Unable to connect to the device"
Hi, When trying to group my speakers they often give an error message saying “unable to connect to the device” (danish: “kunne ikke oprette forbindelse til enheden”). I have tried grouping them with each other seperately like 1+2, 1+3, 1+2, 2+3 etc. but it does not work. Sometimes (very few times) it works, but not for very long then one of the speakers will stop playing, skipping or stopping, then begin again and such. I do not think it is the connection or interference since it is 4 meters away from the router and the only thing between is a drywall and a small kitchen cabinet. I never had any issues with Sonos before a few weeks ago? My setup is:Sonos Beam1x Sonos x IKEA Symfonisk lamp2x Sonos x IKEA Symfonisk shelve speaker I am about to buy 2x Sonos One Gen 2. But do not want to if this problem continues. I have made a diagnostic: 344148001 Edit: To make sure I have tried everything. I have changed the channel from auto to 1, 6 or 11. Nothing helps. I have also tried rebootin
Playbar with repaired PSU still dead
Hello, I have a problem with my dead Playbar. To solve the problem I replaced the rectifier and after that the powersupply works fine (15,8V with load) but the playbar is still dead. Is there anything that I can do or check (schematic, diagram, pinouts) on my playbar that helps me to locate the error? Many thanks!

Connect:Amp Power Supply problem??
My 8 year-old connect Amp ethernet ports keep flashing and won’t connect to the network following reboot after a power outage.I suspect the power supply (or a power supply capacitor) is fried. Is there a fix other than cutting the power supply wires from the board an connecting to an external power supply?
How can I get all of my Sonos devices to show up in S2?
I have five Sonos devices on my network: Play: 5, Play: 3, Beam, and two Connect: Amps. Now that I’m using S2 (on iPhone) I never see all of them. The one I use most, a Connect: Amp, is always there. If I leave the app open for a few minutes, sometimes one of the other ones will appear but no matter how long I wait, I never get all of them. I can unplug/restart the others and eventually get them to show up but they disappear again the next time I pull up the app. What’s my next step in trying to fix this? Should I pull them off their mounts and do a factory reset?
Sonos sound cutting out
I have a playbar, 2x play:1 and sub in 5.1 configuration. Ocassionally the sound will start cutting - it only lasts for like a split second before it comes back but its annoying when suddenly all the sound is gone and then comes back - when it does this it will keep cutting out every few seconds and lasts for several minutes at a time What causes this and how do I fix it? Should I return it to the store for a refund? Thanks
intermittent connection issues (cannot connect to Spotify)
I'm experiencing a strange issue on a larger sonos s2 system (10 speakers). Every other day or so, I can no longer connect to any music services or connect to the update servers. It just says it "cannot connect". I can see all my speakers just fine.Weird thing is, whatever playlist i was playing before I can press play and it will play normally because it has some type of connection. The situation usually rights itself after a few hours, or I can usually fix it by restarting the router and at least one sonos speaker. And I've never had any audio drop outs.I have tried plugging in to the router and using SonosNet, I've tried configuring wifi, I've tried changing channels - same weird behavior. I'm using an eero pro (single, no mesh) and it is working just fine for all my other devices.I submitted a diagnostic at 1718527646 with my current wifi configuration.
One SL stuck in stereo after separating stereo
Hi,I have two One SL that used to be paired as stereo and everything was working just fine.I recently decided to separate them to have them in two rooms independently, and since then they both work as if they were on the left (or right, I don’t know) channel of stereo, instead of being mono.I tried resetting both of them but I get the same result.And they work perfectly in stereo when I recreate the stereo.Any advice ?Thanks

Sonos playing music by itself
I have a Sonos One and a Play:5 that I normally stream Apple Music to. Some mornings, but not every morning, the music is playing when we go downstairs. Our kids have previously streamed Spotify, but it is not active when this happens. I have submitted a diagnostic report (878087836). Is there a way that I can access this report? Any help appreciated.
