Playlist music deleted after moving songs to SD card and other music errors

    Today I got a Samsung brand SD card, inserted it right and it's mounted and everything. I moved all my pictures and music to the SD card right away because I had 31.77/32 GB used. Now once I go on my music player, my playlist titles are still there but all the music is gone. In addition to this, some songs have changed titles and data (I edited them using an app to change their titles and album art work to my preference). I attached a picture for an example. Is there any way to get the data back? (Also you can see how I have no favorites and only 1 song I recently listened to and it says I just added ALL of my tracks in recently added)

    When you moved them, they probably got re-indexed, causing you to lose customization. You'll have to rebuild the playlists, if for no other reason than the song address (internal vs sd) has changed and it didn't update automatically.

    As it's a new Samsung micro-SD, where did you buy it, e.g. cheap online from Ebay? Music not playing, data changing and corrupting unexpectedly, etc. you may want to check it with SD Insight.
    If the Samsung micro-SD does turn out to be a counterfeit, hopefully you'll still got a backup copy of your music library somewhere.

    I got it on Amazon for 12$ and it's Samsung brand and everything, had REALLY good views, I mean everything is perfectly fine except for the missing playlists and some of the many I customized have changed

    OK, definitely check it then with SD Insight. If the manufacturer comes up as "unknown" or "invalid" rather than "Samsung", it's almost certainly a fake micro-SD. AFAIK third-party vendors on Amazon can be as notorious as Ebay for selling knock-offs, no matter how good their feedback appears to be.

    What you're describing is very much the symptoms of a counterfeit micro-SD, and both Samsung and Sandisk are the most often faked.

    If you get your issue solved and chose to do this again. Its safer to use a PC or Laptop to transfer files on your device from one place to another.
