How do I access the music on my SD card?


AC Question

I have an SD card from my old MP3 player. I put it in my phone and I cannot find a way to access the music I already have loaded on it. How do I do this?

Welcome to Android Central! Which phone do you have? What format are the music files on the SD card? What directory are they in? Does the phone recognize the card at all? If you use a file manager app, can you locate those music files on the SD card?
