Probably the main question is can the phone actually play the media via the file manager?

If no, then the built in player is probably not going to be able to play it unless you have the appropriate codec installed. What type of files are you trying to play?

Hmmm, weird, I can't think of anything other than maybe the music files being in a location that the player doesn't search.

Hi
I'm new, so please bear with me:

I have exactly the same problem.
I'd heard so much great stuff about this gadget... but what a mess.

I've placed around 300 MP3 files in the Mass Memory 'Music' folder. There is 'zero' showing in the Music Player 'Music folder... I've refreshed it many times but to no avail. What am I doing wrong?

Did U guys put the maps in the folder Sounds/Digital????

And why not use Pc suite (music option?)..
There U can put maps on your PC 2 put in your device...
It also will convert it 2 smaller size songs and keeps the quality

Strider, thats really not going to endear you to these forums. Judging by your posts, you didnt try too hard to fix your problem.

Either way, if you prefer an SE phone thats well and good. But simply shouting at people to get a different phone when its an N95 forum isnt a good idea.

They are very different phones, the N95 is packed with a lot more things in.

You dont see me on iphone forums giving it stick.

i've always had SE phones but since having the N95 8gb i'd never go back,nokia are way ahead of any 1 else.
i always use WMP or music manager and never get this problem.
if you used file manager delete them and try a different option
just delete them fullstop and try again.

When you are on top of the music player (don't start to navigate into music or podcasts), you have the refresh option available. Use it, it can be very long if you copied many music files (I had over 4500 into the MUSIC folder) to build the catalog, but it worked for me.

Perhaps the music library files are corrupted. Connect the N95 to a PC via USB cable and choose the Data Transfer mode. On the PC navigate to the phone's memory card and delete all of the directories under Private. (NOTE: there are threads on this forum that say you only need to delete certain dirs, but I usually just kill them all.) Reboot your phone and try Refresh again.

Sorry to bump this but I happen to have the same problem.

Just installed the newest firmware ( 20.0.016 ) and after putting my all my mp3s to the Music folder, I can't see them on my playlist and when pressing "Refresh" nothing happens.. I even tried that "Remove files under Private folder" thingy but it didn't work, just lost most of my software (wee!..)

Has anyone found any solutions for this yet?

Not sure if this helps but I just drag and drop mp3s using the vanilla PC Suite. If I d&d the files only then they end up in the correct place (file manager/mass memory/music) but if I drag and drop the container folder then they end up in file manager/mass memory/other.

Dragging and dropping just the files is fine so long as you've got all the tags sorted. Obviously the phone will sort them into artist/album/whatever. I can recommend Mp3 Tag Tools v1.2
