    have you tried clearing the system cache? (using the following method)

    sometimes when a function is not working correctly, this can fix it.

    Hi Tried this on my Moto G but no dice thanks for the try

    Noticed that the ringtones I was trying to use were all tracks from the albums my machine will not play.

    All of these albums are ones which I own the CD, legally and have ripped them to transfer them to the phone.

    On the previous Android version they all played perfect but on 4.4.4 Kitkat DISASTER DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS UPDATE

    are you also facing any such problems?

    @Brian9999 do you know anyone else with such problems? Also you're suggested to do a factory reset...

    All the files that cannot now be played are WMA files ripped from legally owned CDs via windows media player. Looks like the latest Kitkat update stops Google play music from now playing these files. Have downloaded a 3rd party music player app. that plays mp3 AND wma files. So far so good but no shuffle feature. Nil points to Android for this.

    So the issue is with Google Play Music no longer recognizing WMA files locally after the KitKat 4.4.4 update?

    What do you see in Google Play Music? Do your tracks show up? Please clarify "refuse".

    I have the same problem. Cannot play any wma music files anymore. Have cleared cache. Have done 'factory reset'. Have insttalled other players than Google Play Music ( Rocket Play, Player Pro, AIMP). Each time same problem. Can only play MP3 files. Before update to 4.4.4 there was no problem. Any suggestions?

    I've been having this same issue as well. I have music on my phone, stuff I ripped myself from my own CD's, and now it doesn't work anymore. It was when my phone updated to 4.4.4 that it stopped reading WMA files. I've tried several different apps, and they wont play. What's funny is the music I down loaded works fine because that's all mp3's.

    Same problem! After the upgrade none of my WMA files will play.
    When I tried Rocket Play the same thing happened. My Moto G no longer plays music.
    I tried clearing the cache and the data but that did nothing.
    I also tried adding a new album, but Google Play couldn't find it and Rocket play said "sorry, the free player failed to play the song."

    The problem that I am having is that Play Music detects all the audio files in the memory card and not just one specific folder, so when I try to play music everything is mixed in the same list. In the other hand, when I try to use another music player the audios stop suddenly after I lock the phone, so I have no idea what could be doing the players from shutting down or how to configure Play Music to only play music from an specific folder.
    Any ideas, suggestions?

    That is how Play Music is designed.
