Re: why cant i play my music from my sd card

There was a very good explanation to an almost identical question yesterday given by our site Ambassador Rukbat and I have been looking for it for ages .
I think the moderators moved it to somewhere obscure!

In essence the new music app has no link to them. I can't remember the full explanation or cure.
First reboot your device, as the media scanner in Android starts a new search on boot up.
Darn, I forget the rest. It sounded so logical.

Check back late for a better answer.
