So I have a very odd problem. When I mark my songs for offline use in Google Play Music, they download just fine and are available offline. However, when I go to the /sdcard/Android/data/ directory, there are no files in there.

Does anyone know how to find my files or fix what's wrong?

I'm very confused and have already tried factory restoring my phone. I am using a Samsung Galaxy S3 (Verizon) with the stock ROM which I've rooted.

On my Galaxy Nexus my cached music files are in /mnt/sdcard/Android/data/ – Al E. Aug 2 '12 at 3:48
Use something like Astro and search for "mp3". – Al E. Aug 2 '12 at 3:49

So I figured this out. Somewhere along the line, Google moved the offline music/cache to /data/data/
