Music album NEVER appears in my Music Library


AC Question

The album "...And Justice for All" by Metallica never seems to appear in my music library. I've tried on other phones I've had but it never appears. Right now I have an Xperia z3 phone. The files I am ripping from CD are being ripped as MP3s. I drag and drop the album folder into the SD card but when I check the library through the phone... it's not there at all. All other mp3s do appear but this one never does.

Welcome to Android Central! Is the directory name actually "...And Justice for All"? If so, you're inadvertently making the folder a hidden folder. Preceding a file or folder name with a period makes it hidden. Delete the preceding periods, and it should show up.
