    Some folks have trouble getting Spotify to see their mobile device in the Devices tab of the Spotify desktop app. I had this same problem and finally tracked it down to the Windows Firewall.  These instructions are for Windows 7, but should apply to XP as well:

    1. Open Windows Firewall

    Simple way: hit the windows key, then type “allow a program” and it should filter down to “Allow a program through Windows Firewall”.

    Explicity way: Start > Control Panel > System and Security > Windows Firewall > Allow a program or feature through Windows Firewall

    If you are on XP and cannot follow the steps above, try following this guide:… — you want to grant access to “c:Program FilesSpotifyspotify.exe”

    2. Allow Spotify to communicate through Windows Firewall

    Scroll down the list of programs until you find Spotify and then make sure that the proper box is checked for the network you are on.  

    This is where my problem was.  Spotify installs itself and requests a public security exception so that it can connect ot the Spotify servers, but to sync over wifi with my mobile device I also needed to have the Home/Work (Private) box checked.

    3. Click OK

    Once I did this I made sure the mobile app was running, and then I clicked on the devices tab in the Spotify desktop app and after a few moments the Spotify desktop app populated with my iPhone and a message that it was syncing and the whole page filled with all my playlists that I could select for sync.


    I verified this whole process again by disabling the Home/Work (Private) access in Windows Firewall, and restarted the Spotify app and again my access was disconncted.  Once I checked the box and hit OK I woke up my iPhone again, ran the Spotify app and all was connected again.

    For others who say that they tried a few days later and it just “worked” it may be that they connected to a Public network (like a coffee shop) and in that case Spotify would have been able to connect to your mobile device if it too was on the same Public network.
