    I have copied parts of my music library to the SD-card in my Android. Now I would like to play the audio files in a directory and its sub directories preferentially just by tapping on the directory in file manager.
    How do I accomplish this.
    Thanks in advance

    Move all the other files.

    Thanks, but that doesn't seem to do the trick. It won't play a directory containing only audio files.

    Use a music player app that plays the files from only the folders that you choose...
    Pulsar, Poweramp, are some that do this.
    Do a search in the play store for music players...

    I'm pretty sure the stock Samsung file manager app won't do that. Suggest you use a music player app that has a file browser in it. I use Foobar2000, and that can do that, i.e. play the audio files in a directory with one tap.
