    My problem was that I had manually copied a playlist file to the Playlist and Music folders in an attempt to have custom playlists created outside of Google Play. It did nothing until about a day later and then *bam* no music anymore. I deleted the files I had created and the music came back.

    If all your music is pinned, then no you won't need/use data. You will only need data for music that is not pinned.

    Sent from my Nexus 7 using AC Forums mobile app
    I second (third? fourth?) this. I use a USB thumb drive attached to my S5 (too much music for my microSD). In Google Play, I selected the USB drive as the source, selected "wifi only" for streaming, and on the main menu, selected "Download Only" as the option. When I play songs, if I disconnect the USB stick, music stops, confirming that the music is locally sourced, not streamed.

    I used Rocket player to play my music and it sees everything perfectly.. It downloaded all my album covers and I'm having no problems whatsoever. I checked to see if the default samsung music app works... It does.
    Thank you so much for this , i was having the same problems and the rocket player helped me out and fixed it all.

    I don't know if it will help, but I have all my music in folders beneath a root folder called Albums. Never had a problem.

    this is a late reply. I KNOW
    im not sure if the problem you have is the same as mine, but I recently bought a Samsung and took the memory card I had in my bb and insert it only to have my song not playing and my pictures not showing.... after searching the web to no avail I got ingenious...
    I hooked up the phone via usb, to the computer, opened the memory card copied all the songs and playlists and save them in a folder on the computer hard drive< and delete them off the memory card. closed everything reopened it and copied them back from the computer and put them back on the memory card....PS I kept the memory card in the phone at all time and phone turned on....... got my songs playing on the Samsung music app>

    don't know why it worked. think the phones wants to format them itself or something>> i'm so not a techy obviously>> but I post this here hoping it can make some else life a bit easier

    I did the same with some my pics again it worked> but it was better to just save them on my external harddrive........

    1. Plug android into computer

    2. Go to your plugged in android (SAMSUNG-SM-G900A, or something similar).

    3. Click on Card

    4. Click on Android

    5. Create folder called Music, next to the "data" folder

    6. Put any music in here that you want to play on your default Samsung Music app



    The Logic:


    The main music app is designed to look for a folder named Music, as this is where it pulls the songs from on your phones local storage.

    If you notice where the Music folder on your phone's local storage is in relation to the file's depth, it's one level down from SAMSUNG-SM-G900A, or whatever your phone's name is.

    For the SAMSUNG-SM-G900A file tree, "Phone" is one level down but for "Card", "Android" is one level down because it has to create an image of the phone for communication purposes. "Phone" and "Android" essentially serve the same purposes in relation to their "parent" files.

    The parent file for "Phone" is SAMSUNG-SM-G900A and the parent for "Android" is "Card". Your SD card is acting independently of your phone to establish itself as part of the phone, a phone image within a phone.

    The Music app is only designed to search for this folder one level down in all phone storage locations, such as your SD card.

    So to compensate for it's "shallow" way of searching for the Music folder, you create the Music file on your "card" but also inside the Android folder, mirroring the actual phone's storage system.

    I'm also experiencing the very same problem as the user above My music files on my sd card wont be recognised by the phone's music player. I decided to take the advice and use Google Music to play all the music files present on the device. Still quite disappointing but it works none the less... Just want to know why music files wont show up on the music player.

    Thanks for this, this fixes the problem for me!
    I can't understand why they "improve" things like that; on my old Samsung Charge dragging and dropping worked no matter where you put the files. I guess the new music isn't as smart as the old one...SMH

    On your main screen, go to "Apps".
    Then go to "My Files".
    Press the menu button and go to "Settings".
    There you will see a list named "Select directories".
    Find "Set music directory".
    Set your external sd card as the default.
    Rescan your music files and the default samsung music app will be able to recognize/play the songs saved on your sd.

    Hope this is what you were looking for.

    A lot of responses but no real answers. Why does the android app not play music that is moved onto the SD card using a computer and how can it be fixed with out having to do anything unusual or technical. Android is Linux based and should be reading mp3 files without any issues so the questions is what is it about the file extension naming when moving files with your computer that causes the android music app to not play the mp3 files?
