    Coming from an iPhone, pardon my ignorance. I loaded my SD card with my iTunes music by copying from iTunes library on my Mac to my SD card via "Android File Transfer" on my Mac. Now, none of my music playing apps can see my music. This includes Google Play, Samsung's player, and Amazon Prime's player.

    Do I need to install a different app? Any trick I'm missing?

    Thanks
    Mark

    Here are some helpful tips about transferring iTunes to your Android device. I believe double Twist is the app that has the best potential.

    Looks like Double Twist has an issue with Samsung and Marshmallow.

    Be aware that this app, which has been AWESOME on Android 4 & 5, does not yet support storage on the SD card with Android 6 (Marshmallow) at least on a Samsung phone. Hopefully the vendor will update the APIs as other apps still support storage on the SD card with 6.0.1 Until then I don't have enough memory to hold my usual song library :-( I know they are trying to push folks to the cloud player, but that app doesn't work as well for some and I've already paid for prem on this app. Please Fix the SD card storage!!
