    I don't really know much about music on the Nexus S, but are they all in a supported format? I know for sure it supports .mp3.

    Not sure what is said in the thread, but the phone didn't support windows media formats. So make sure your files are in mp3 or something where other than .wav

    I would ask if the songs are actually .mp3 or if in fact they are iTunes .m4a.

    The default music app will not read .m4a, or copy-protected mp3s (such as how they used to be if downloaded from iTunes).

    Also, you don't need to create a Music folder and manually dump music in. You can actually connect to your PC, turn on "USB storage" when prompted, then simply pull up Windows Media Player and use the Sync option.

    It basically allows you do drag/drop into a playlist that will automatically organize your files/folders just like iTunes on an iPod.

    You may actually need to capitalize the "Music" folder, in case you haven't done that. I have heard of people having issues with that, but I doubt it makes a difference.

    Also, keep in mind that until you turn off USB Storage, your music files won't be available, so it's possible that if you're still connected to the PC, that's why you don't see them on the phone.
