Audio [Q] Google Music File Limit

Hey everyone

In order to test Google Music me and my friends put together a massive amount of music files. Some of them were already in Googles databse, so no direct upload was necessary, some of them were not so that i had to upload them.

So, now to the "funny fact". Google Music says now, there is no more space for me to upload music files. But the website and the android app shows me "only" 18077 files of 20.000 max.

So, can anyone tell me, why Gmusic stopps the upload even the limit hasn't reached yet? The trash is empty and the only thing I did was to upload 10 albums on an other gmusic account (normale ones, so 10-12 songs per cd).

hope you have an idea

best regards

Hi guys,

The Google Play Music application supports audio files in numerous formats - including .mp3, .m4a (iTunes application AAC, DRM-free), FLAC, and OGG Vorbis - so you can copy music to your device that you’ve purchased from online stores, CDs you own, and other sources.

For some reason, some users reported that they were able to upload more than 20,000 songs. The numbers varies from one to another. So you're one of those unlucky ones I guess :P

So, today i deleted some albums of my gmusic account... just to look what will happens...

I deleted about 100 Songs, moved the "new" albums from my synced folder away and then back... 2 albums were uploaded, then again, the message or warning came back, i have too many songs in my account...

ok, so i deleted 200 more. 200!! and deleted them in the junk too... account shows 200 less... i moved again just one album into the sync folder, refreshed gmusic, restartet the upload app... but again, too many songs in my library... what the hell is that?
