Default Cannot view or play mp3 files

Hi all,

I have a Galaxy Note, running Android 4.0.4 (is that ice cream? dunno). I've downloaded some podcasts from the BBC expecting to be able to play them and put them in a folder on my SD card. They are there and can see when when I inspect the SD card via my PC with the phone connected. Android cannot see them however, and indicates that the folder is empty.

Hmmm.... help! Any advice gratefully received. Thanks,

Your file structure is important. You can only go two folders deep. So you could have a folder structure like Music>Podcasts and drop the files in the podcast folder but you cannot have a folder structure like Music>Podcasts>BBC Podcasts and drop the files in BBC Podcasts.
