    Hi all


    My music (in mainly ogg and wma format which are on the "supported files" list for the DHD) is on my SD card under sd/musicfolders but my stock music player doesn't seem to be able to find it. I play my music using PowerAmp Pro which works fine but need the stock player to use the files in other applications e.g. make ringtones etc.


    Can anyone help me with how I fix this?

    Thanks

    This may sound stupid but have you tried turning the phone off, removing the SD card, putting it back in again, then turning the phone back on... I'm not sure if that will work but it worked for me when everything in my gallery disappeared :)

    Just saw it in another post:
    The poster had a file named ".nomedia" in his music folder.
    With that file in a folder, the stock player will ignore media files.

    UPDATE:

    I'm 99% certain it was the "no media" file that was causing the problem but I couldn't find it when I searched using file explore via my laptop or directly on the phone. I know it was there as it flashed up when I was moving some music around saying the file already existed in the music folder.

    In the end I deleted all the music from my SD card (including the music folder) and reloaded it from my back up drive in a new folder; not ideal but only way around it I could find. Happily this has fixed it :)
