Download the app called Rescan Media from the market, run it then go back to your Music player. The music that you downloaded from dropbox should now show up. There are other ways to force this media sync (unmount / remount SD should do it) but this app makes it just the press of a button.

Android uses a so-called Media Scanner to index your media files (this also applies to your images and videos). This Media Scanner ships with the system, and fires automatically on certain system events -- such as after boot, or when you insert your SD-Card. It does, however, not react on a simple "file-drop" via network. For such cases, it might need a ...

A last resort is always a factory reset, which should fix this problem. You could also have a look at the logcat output, maybe this will give you a hint about the cause of the problem.

In Dropbox, simply add MP3s to favorites and they become available in a stock Google Play Music application (Tested in Android ICS)

I have finally had a chance to look at the logcat while the problem was occuring. The error message reads: Completed command PLAYER_PREPARE status=-17 According to this forum "it’s caused by having too many MediaPlayer objects active at once." Unfortunately I have not yet found a fix. The only known workaround seems to be rebooting. I am still not sure, ...

I have the same problem here, using Galaxy S with Android 2.3.3. Looking at the log, we can see the PID (proccess ID) used by PlayerDriver. V/PlayerDriver( 84): Completed command PLAYER_PREPARE status=-17 So, I've killed the PlayerDriver process and it has fixed. In order to do that, you need to root your device and connect with adb as root. ...

Copy the files as before but use a music player from the play store. I would suggest a player that supports folder based play so it doesn't force you to sort your music by album/artist, which can be a pain if your music isn't tagged properly. I will not suggest you a particular music player because I don't want to turn this question in to a favorite music ...

Have you tried CloudAround yet? It's a music app that lets you listen to everything on your device as well as sync/stream from a few cloud storage providers. This includes offline music you saved from Amazon MP3. The app scans your device for all music files and gives you a handy list of everything available. Once you login with the various cloud ...

I think I found the problem. Like bjoernz said, some application is creating many objects from MediaPlayer class and it's not releasing that after. So, I opened an adb shell, became root (su) and I found the PID (process ID) of mediaserver, using the command: ps | grep mediaserver The mediaserver's PID, in my case, is: 84 Then, I listed all ...

I noticed this problem on my galaxy s, it took a while to piece together, but it appeared to have started when I began using third party task managers. It happened with advanced task killer and watchdog installed. I went back to using the native task manager and the problem appears to have gone away.... Hasn't occured in the past week. I'm running 2.2.1. ...

I experience the same problems, and I can't seem to get a consistent cause. After rebooting my phone, I don't see the problem again for another 12-24 hours. Because I use custom music as my alarm clock, I've adopted the habit or rebooting my phone before going to sleep. It's caused many late days to work before I figured out what was going on. I started ...

Try the latest Museek player. It has support for gapless playback. You need to enable it from within the ADVANCED settings in the app. There's also PowerAmp and Winamp which seemingly offer decent gapless playback quality.

The same problem is on my galaxy s. I've noticed that if I use Google Listen and have some queue, mp3 stops playing. After clearing queue it was getting ok! But... It seems Adobe Flash influences on media playback too. If I use it them any media playback fails, before rebooting. Maybe 2.3 will fix the problem. Almost tired to find the solution for 2.2 on ...

Have you tried testing for individual media files causing the problem? Many moons ago I had a problem where certain files would corrupt the database of music and eventually cause problems for the whole library. This is very hypothetical as my experience wasn't on an android device and my Galaxy S works just fine. Despite this I thought you could try loading ...

If you export the tunes to the SD card rather than the music app then they will show straight up in the music player. Just a little annoying that you've got to do them one at a time rather than as a group. Dropbox > More > Export > Save to SD card > select Music folder

You have multiple choices on how to accomplish this: Using a headset If you've got a 1-button-headset connected, you can facilitate that button. There are multiple apps on the playstore providing enhanced possibilities to this -- just search for "headset-control. Having a Philips headset, I use Philips Headset, which works pretty well; you might have to ...

Manually moving files as suggested by Michael above works (I use Ghost Commander on my device), but today I found the Amazon MP3 Mover app. It automatically moves the files to the folder you specify on your SD card as they download and then the Amazon MP3 player app (or Apollo or whatever else you might use) finds them in their new location. I just ...

It seems that Android built-in music player cannot export playlist. One of the solution I could think of is to use 3rd-party app to export it, such as Playlist Backup (free) Description This application allows you to export your audio playlists (both System, Poweramp and Google Play Music playlists) to sdcard or Dropbox. You can keep as many backups ...

After I posted this question, I found out that 'PlayerPro' music player allows you to choose the type of ratings it saves to. MediaMonkey is one of them, so this basically is what I needed. Unfortunately, it is not a free app, but for me although this is a tiny feature, this is something I'm willing to pay for.

My main use of Android MP3 files is to listen to podcasts. My workflow is as follows: Use Google Reader to subscribe to and browse podcast feeds. The MP3 files are linked in each feed, so the ones I decide to listen to get downloaded to my computer. I use DownThemAll for downloading, because it's good at this kind of download and because it preserves ...

Some of the more advanced music players have the ability to rescan media from the phone. In PlayerPro you can do Menu->Settings->Music Library->Refresh mediastore This should then show up any music added since the last scan.

Haven't tried it as the cloud player's not available in my country yet, but does the trick that makes the normal music player ignore folders work? Try creating a file called .nomedia in the folder that your podcasts are saved into, and see if that makes the Amazon player ignore them.
