Bug Description

I have been having problems importing playlists into Mixxx. I had mixxx installed on my C drive (OS drive) and kept getting an error that the tracks couldn't be found. I installed Mixxx on the D: partition (where my music is) and it worked. So looks like the library doesn't like to go between partitions.

When you're dealing with QFile and QDir, there's like 10 different function calls to get the path. It's really easy to use the "wrong" function and you end up with weird problems like this.

Ok thanks for the update,

It was easy for me to deal with (just install in the correct partition) but
took quite some time to figure out.

Thanks for all the work on MIXXX it is a great program,

Mike

We took out playlist importing in 1.8.0, hopefully we'll add it back in soon.
