    I love my nokia 920 but this is the only thing that annoys me.

    I go to use the synch music, highlight the playlist I want and I get this message

    Something Went wrong with synchronizing files

    underneath that it lists all the songs it couldnt transfer

    i.e

    could not access (where my music is stored) (song name and album) and then try allowing access from the menu option.




    I have not got a clue what the problem is. I am able to synch by dragging and dropping via the browse device section but would prefer to synch individual playlists.


    Please ignore i have sorted it, now love my phone even more

    I'm glad to hear you got it sorted.

    What did you do?

    I was able to resolve this issue by going to "file" in the mac app menu and clicking "allow access to folder" then selecting the folder my mp3s are kept in.

    I can't believe that trick worked! It drove me crazy not being able to sync my music from my Mac (OS X 10.8.4) to my Lumia 925. Thank you for providing the answer. I have tried searching several times, but never the error message, only the problem.

    Thanks again!

    Ugg. I have tried everything. I am running on a Mac Pro OSX 10.9.1
    I have my iTunes Music stores on a separate drive. I go under file allow access to folder. then try to sync selected music.
    Some of it makes it over to my HTC 8X, yet other don't for no apparent reason. I get the dreaded
    "Something went wrong while synchronizing folders" but only for some songs, not all.
    I can't figure this out.
    I also though the phone would show up under the finder, nope not for me, only the Windows Phone app see's it.

    Any ideas

    Try adding music with Music Drop instead. The official Mac Transfer app is complete garbage.
