    Using an Z3

    When I connect my phone to my laptop I can see the songs in the folder, but they don't appear when I try and find them on my phone

    Also the songs don't play on my laptop from the sd.only when I copy them to desktop

    Any ideas?

    Welcome to Android Central! Does anything else from the SD show up in the phone? The SD card could be corrupt, defective, or counterfeit. Install SD Insight to see if the card is genuine or counterfeit. Counterfeit cards are programmed to report more storage than they actually have, and if you try saving more than the card can actually hold, then files can start getting corrupt.

    If it's a valid card, then go to Settings>Storage, Unmount the card, remove it, and insert it into your computer. Can the computer read these files? Backup as much as you can right now, then run chkdsk to look for bad sectors: [GUIDE] Using chkdsk to fix a corrupted SD card.

    Are you sure you didn't copy shortcuts to the card? Shortcuts just point to where on the hard drive the actual file is located. They mean nothing to the phone.
