Default Using my SD card within the the phone itself

I have a SD memory card from my old phone and it has pictures and music on it, but I cannot figure out how to get to it all on the phone. Like I want to use my pictures on my memory card to customize my wallpaper, but my pictures don't show up in the wallpaper settings menu on my phone. Where is my memory card in the phone?

Do you have any file browser programs such as Root explorer or ES file explorer? Are you running the stock rom or custom?

I used the built in My Files app to transfer pics from my old phone's sd card to the internal memory.

Opened My Files, navigated to external_sd, then down to where pics were located. While pic thumbnails were showing, touched the menu key, then "more", then "move". Put a check next to pics I wanted to move, then "move", navigated to DCIM, then "camera", then "move here". Pics got transferred quickly. Once it's in "camera" folder, open pic, touch menu button, at bottom of screen "set as" then wallpaper.

Sounds complicated, but do it once and it's cake from then on.
