    Wow, I feel like I've got so much to learn.
    I was stoked to see that Dropbox has an android app so I d/l'ed it and pulled a couple mp3 files I have up there. I can play them right after downloading, but I can't find the files using my music player. It's the stock music player. I've not yet downloaded any music files to my phone so all that's in there for me to see and play is what was loaded stock. Any help? I think when I installed the dropbox app it told me where it was putting the files, but I can't even figure out how to navigate to the files just to poke around and search...

    Thanks for helping.

    there's a setting in the stock app to show what folders for the app to look in, i think. I don't play much music on my phone (although I do download a lot of music to it, and move it to my computer lol).

    If nothing else, just connect the phone to your computer, navigate to the folder of the app you used to download the music, and the files will be in there. Then, move them to the music folder (media > music, I think)
