General :: Missing Music Files After Downloading To Phone?
Nov 9, 2012
I have a samsung galaxy ii skyrocket. Sometimes I transfer mp3s directly from my computer to a new music subfolder on my phone. But when i look on my phone, some of the mp3s show up in the folder and some do not.
Since 2.2 I have been unable to download anything and only get an error message after it takes you to the download screen. This is happening on the stock browser as well as skyfire. Am I missing something? This worked fine in 2.1.
I copy all my music files into google music on my sd card! They all went away. The only thing that is left is the band title folder, they are all empty inside. Is there any recovery or did I make a huge mistake? sdcard/andriod/data/com.goole.andriod.music..I still have all my "on device music" from google.
My daughter's cell was taken away by her dad (who we don't live with), and she has all of her music and photos on it. We are trying to figure out a way to access and save/download them without having physical access to the phone. I don't know the google/gmail account associated with the phone. Is there any way to change the gmail account for that phone and then be able to access photos and music data? We just want her pictures and music, and the only thing I can figure is that without knowing the gmail account of the phone, there's no other way to get this. Also not sure if it's all saved in the google account since the music was DL'd using 3rd party music apps.
new owner of two Motorola Droids and can not figure out what system to use to download music from my PC to the phone. I had a BB Storm which used Verizon Rhapsody very easily. What does everyone use on their PC's?
got a Samsung Galaxy S4 (for several years I had iPhones) and I am enjoying it. Now that I have gotten all my music files away from iTunes' clunky clutches I have reorganized them and they are on my S4's sim card and it works great.
The issue is that I have updated a few of the files and moved a couple more around. I want to update those music files on my S4 from my PC. I could just delete the Music folder on the S4 and recopy everything over, but that seems to be a huge overkill.
What is a good way to compare files between my S4 and folders on the PC and match/update between the two? I am using Windows 7. I have tried to map the Sim Card as a drive but couldn't get that to work. I have Kies from Samsung but that is kinda clunky. I have also tried AirDroid (which I think is great) but I can't really sync files with that. Normally I would use a Windows application like Beyond Compare or WinMerge to do something like this.
I am on a standard website that has a normal upload button, I need to upload a PDF file, But when I click on the upload button on the web site a popup window from my Android phone appears and says "Choose action" and gives me access to the gallery, camcorder, voice recorder , choose music track, gallery (again), select music track and voice recorder (again).
I need to some how get access to my SD card and my download folder to be able to pick the the pdf file that I need to upload. I have tried this both on the default internet browser and Google Chrome, but both give the same options.
I have a problem with downloading files from hosting sites such as rapidgator, hellshare etc. On default browser and on Google Chrome files aren't downloading at all or there is downloaded a file which has for example 26kb or so, while I am trying to download files about 400-700mb. On Opera Mobile the files are downloading, but if I will minimize the browser and start any other app, the downloading process is stopped. I am really surprised with that because a few months ago I also had HTC Desire Z and I could've download any file with the stock browser and. while downloading, check any app I wanted.
I have Asus Transformer Pad 300 with Android ICS (newest update). When I download files about 10mb everything is ok, so I assume it's the size problem or maybe file extension, but I tried the app called All files download (or something like that) which has been recommended in a similar post (but that user had SGS3) and it didn't worked either.
I have music that is playable with Google Play Music player, but not with other players. I have chosen for the music to be "on the device", and it plays when even in Airplane Mode, so I know it is not streaming, but the music files do not show up in my "Music" directory tree, or under any other file trees that I can find. I have used ES File Explorer to do a top down search for some of the missing titles, but it doesn't find them. I'm perplexed. There must be a cache somewhere, but I can't find it.
I'm wondering how I am suppose to download music and music on my new phone. I am not very computer savvy and keep getting different info from people. I also need to know how I can get either java or mic on my phone to enable me to chat.These are the two reasons I bought the phone and I cannot do either.Any other info you can provide would be great!
My mother has an Asus Transformer, and she's had it for awhile, but she doesn't use it for much other than getting e-mails or video chats. I turned it on today and it suddenly downloaded a bunch of files. Mahjong.exe, Bubble_Hit_brch.exe, 7-superfoods-to-boost-your-immunity.pdf, etc. Small files, less than 1MB per file. There were about a dozen files in her downloads folder, a few of which had "-1" after it so it had downloaded some of them twice now.
I've Googled the filenames, Google "downloading files at random", "downloading unwanted files", etc., etc. I installed three different virus scanners and they found nothing. I believe her when she says she doesn't download anything or install anything.
i tried to flash recovery for my star lt18i for right to left mod(i'm hebrew speaker and the hebrew langugh wirten right to left) i cant flash any recovery cause i dont have the drivers, any link for those files:
I am trying to decompile contacts.apk from my micromax a52. I tried from apk manager and apk multi tools but it is giving error.

Earlier I've posted about losing my keychar and keylayout folders but however downloading some files and folders from the internet and from other (non-samsung phones) my keys started working...However my home key, back key, the power keys doesn't work!
I probably think that some files are missing from my system folder (keychar and keylayout folder). I do not want to re-install my android once again. (I do not have backups either)

I have only had my HTC Desire for a couple of days and I love it however this is my first 'android' phone so I am still finding my way around doing things. I wanted to transfer music from my PC to my phone so I linked up my phone with the PC using the USB cable and dragged the files from my desktop to the J drive which I assume is my phone but the music does not appear to be in my music folder, I assume that I have to do something else to get it from the SD card to my phone but what
Other threads say that adding mp3 files to the phone shouldn't slow it down. I have only 1gb of songs on the int memory - and the music player seems to take a good 20-30 seconds to read & list what's there every time I start it. is this normal?
So I have about 1,000 songs on my phone and earlier today I connected my phone to my computer so I can add more music. When I opened my music folder on my phone, it stopped at 349 songs and the rest of them showed up as a "hard drive" icon? What happened? When I disconnect my phone to see if my music was deleted or something, it wasn't. It's still there on my phone but just won't show up on my computer.
I've dumped my thumb drive and now use my smartphone (HTC V One) for the same purpose. One side effect is I now have a couple directories full of mp3 files that I'd like to hide from the music player (no, they aren't those kinds of files. They're work related, not music).
Is it possible to hide directories from the music player? Even better, can I tell the music player to only look under 'My Music' on the SD card?
I have a Samsung Galaxy I7500 using android 1.5. I extended my phone with a 16GB microSD. I copied a big music collection (around 800 files) into a folder on this SD. Now the problem is that the music player can't find all the files.
I know that there are several threads about android not finding music. The answers are usually that the library hasn't yet been updated or that the ID3 tags are not correct. I have checked both.
Btw. I can play the files using ASTRO.
In my opinion it seems as if android can't build up a library with too many entries. If I rename the files or put them into different folders, songs disappear and reappear quite randomly.
Do you have any solutions? Is there a music player which doesn't use the native music players index of files?
I have pined them and they are local it says, but cannot find the files, do you know where they are stored. I read on other post that it is in Internal storageAndroiddatacom.google.android.music, but when looked there it is empty
I am transferring mp3/mp4 files to Music Folder on my android phone. but I always get this message "Your file will be copied, but you might not be able to play or view it on your device". I copied it but Google Play Music/ Winamp cant detect any files I copied. It only show files I downloaded from the net. My android version is 4.2.1.
I'm trying to create custom ringtones from the music files on my Galaxy Nexus running Android 4.4.2 (CM 11 build date 09-Jan-2014). Most, if not all, of my music is in M4A format, so I made sure the ringtone makers I've tried support that format.
The apps play the music files just fine, but when I try to open any file for editing, no matter what app I use, I get "Error reading file" or a variation thereof. The files were transferred from my Windows 8.1 computer to my phone via Winamp (USB, not wifi).
how to resolve this, short of wiping all the music and transferring WAV or MP3 files?
Any tips on how to download mp3 files? When I click on links in the browser the file just starts streaming in the media player. I saw another poster mentioned an app called "download crutch" but it isn't available in Market for the Cliq.
