Windows Store Apps file not get saved in MusicLibrary for Simulator RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have downloader process which saves mp3 file into Music Library. Code below works for real device. So after download finishes, when I go to Music Library I can browse & play downloaded files, but on Simulator, even if download finishes successfully, I do not see files on Music Library. Also not getting any error. Am I missing something?

    StorageFile destinationFile = await KnownFolders.MusicLibrary.CreateFileAsync(
       fileName, CreationCollisionOption.GenerateUniqueName);
       BackgroundDownloader downloader = new BackgroundDownloader();
        XmlDocument content = new XmlDocument();
      downloader.SuccessToastNotification = new ToastNotification(content);
     DownloadOperation download = downloader.CreateDownload(source, destinationFile);

  • Hi reyou,

    Let's narrow down the question before trying to guess why.

    As I know CreateFile method will create a blank file for you even you do not have content to write in. Could you set a breakpoint here to see if the code successfully create the file?

    Besides I can use my simulator create the file successfully without any problem, let's change the second option as ReplaceExisting to see if the same thing happens.

  • It creates file on real device with no problem, I do not get any kind of error on simulator as well. Just when I go to Music application on simulator I do not see song downloaded but on real device it works!
