MTP/Clementine/KDE Connect

no matter what i do Clementine will read my device and when I double click to access the device I see how :

  1. Clementine force closes
  2. Dolphin File manager & Device Notifier inform me of how device is unmounted and mounted again…

Essentially I would like to transfer 40-60- GB of music …thxs!

Why would you be using Clementine to transfer files?
What kind of device is your music files on?

Personally, I would just use dolphin to copy or move them to my Music folder in my home directory.

that’s not resolving the issue nor is it very helpful/practical when one is short on space and has over 300GB of music on ext hard drive and playlists

its a feature in Clementine to copy music/playlist to devices…using your logic why just i dont use Gmtp then…

So your not “transfering” music you just want to access it, I apologize for the misunderstanding.
