Re: Stock music app couldn't find music file in SD card!

Where exactly did you put them? I put them directly in the "Music" folder on SD card and it works.

Also, if you have them on internal memory, you can go to the settings menu and in storage you will 

find an option to move data to SD card, which will move pictures, videos and music to the corresponding 

folders on the SD card. Maybe if you chose this option it will move the music to a folder which it is 

then able to read from.

@Mattel

 

Are you able to find them with the file commander?

Re: Stock music app couldn't find music file in SD card!

I just tried to copy some mp3's to the "Music" folder on my SD card and they show up just fine in the stock player.

 

Where on the SD card did you copy the files to?

Which format are the files you copied?

Please also check if there are maybe special characters in the filename.

I can imagine this could also cause problems.
