I have been successfully playing music on Sonos via my android phone (bought for this purpose when support for my iphone ceased).

Yesterday I added some additional CDs via itunes on my Windows 10 laptop but now can’t play any tracks as I get this message each time. Help!

 Hi @Johnny91, welcome to the Sonos community, and thank you for letting us know about your concern. Let me help you out on this.

First, I'd like to ask some questions to isolate the issue so we can determine the path towards a resolution.

1. What is the error message you received when you started to play music?
2. Any changes in the network recently?
3. Did you try removing and re-adding your music library?
4. Have you tried hardwiring one of your speakers to your router and update your music library?
5. Did you check the sharing permissions on your computer?
6. Did you check your Windows PC firewall configuration?
7. If you have an antivirus installed on your Windows PC, you may check the firewall configuration settings to ensure that it's not blocking Sonos.

Please run a diagnostic report from your Windows PC and reply back with the confirmation number for us to check and help provide a resolution. If you need help with any other information, please be sure to let us know. We'll wait for your reply.

Thanks for responding.

  1. The music tracks apparently transfer to the Nokia 7.1 and are seen in its Music file. When I open Sonos S1 on phone, Browse to ‘on this mobile device’ then ‘Albums’ I see the album. I tap on Album and see the tracks. When I press play I get message starting with name of track, E.g. “Schindler’s List is no longer available on HMD Nokia 7.1”. It then cycles through all the tracks with the corresponding message at each track.
  2.  I have moved a Play 1 to a different room.
  3. Yes, I have tried deleting all music from mobile’s Music folder and at present moved back only 1 album.
  4. Main speaker is always hard wired to router.
  5. 6. 7. Will check asap

I’ve now had success with the different Android, a Samsung J5 on Android 6.0.1. I removed the SD card from the Nokia and reformatted it in the Samsung.

I’ve now transferred a number of albums and can play them on my Sonos system.

I’ve an inkling that the problem is in my pc iTunes files as not all tracks transfer and play.
