    Hi guys,
    Having searched and read about this topic, Im still having a problem and I couldnt find the answers.
    This is my scenario..
    I have a little over 20GB of music. I installed half on the players memory itself and the other half on an external micro sd card that has been inserted into the phone. Before transferring my music onto the phone and memory card, it was all under folders on my hard drived base MP3 player.
    I really like plug-and-play type MP3 players, non-Apple, and just simply
    had all my music in folders from A-Z and then the each different Band in a different sub-folder. I am not concerned with tags or album art.
    Since the phone comes with 16GB, I have to divide all my music half and half.

    My questions are:

    1. Is it possible to have all the music lumped into one like it was on my old MP3 player?

    2. I cant seem to browse the music by folders. I want to have my music set up as 26 different folders from A-Z, then have the Bands seperated by folder WITHIN that folder

    I tried downloading MortPlayer and Astro Player, but it doesnt seem to work right. Are there any settings on the phone to manage my music this way?

    Thanks for your time!!!

    Try mortplayer, I believe it has folder play.

    Tried Mortplayer, but it freezes up and I gotta remove it for my phone to run smoothly
    Any other folder play program?

    try Meridian.
    i was also on the lookout for a similar 'folder-wise' playing app. stumbled upon meridian and am loving it.
    try it. u will definitely like it.

    nope, i have tried it but it is not what i'm looking. i like a player similar to windows media player where you have a pop.ip menu where you can open files or folders and its content.

    The stock player has a folders option. Does that not work?

    1.) Mortplayer it works well on my phone but seems it had problems on yours.

    2.) In that case try POWERAMP it uses bit more CPU and RAM but is a complete player. Option to chose both folders or tag structure. 10 band AMP. Lock screen widget. Album art grabber etc. What else would one want?

    I installed mortplayer, very promising so far. Defined 'music' folder with subfolder pop and classic. If I wanna play the pop folder, tap it, goes to album, than song. Problem: The player plays ALL songs in music, not just the pop folder. What am I missing?
    Second problem: where is the 3 different font size hiding?

    try winamp app from market. there you can sort mp3s like "albums" and it show you only mp3s and FOLDERS as you have it in default folder of music (works on samsung galaxy s 2)

    In stock music player, open menu-setting-music menu - enable folder option
    for this no need to go for extra player
    now you can select ne folder n can play

    I can't find those options anywhere. Are you talking about the app that looks like a speaker and is labeled "Music"?

    any android device phone or tablet
    it uses your folders as playlists
    just make sure you have numbered your track in the order you want them in
    before you copy the folder to your device
    it has an auto pause
    font resizing,
    its a lot like foobar i use it in the clubs for playing backing track
    and music
    oh and its free its called
    Just what you need
