Looks like you will need a 3.5mm connector to iPod proprietary 40-pin converter. There are some available on eBay here: http://www.ebay.com/bhp/ipod-female-connector (note -- this link is temporary once the items are sold; if someone finds a permalink to a product page please edit my answer and add it).

That sounds like a bad SD Card. Insist doing that over and over again, with sound files and movie files as well.

Seems to be a common hardware problem on Samsung devices. Easiest solution is to just install the newest Dorimanx kernel for Samsung Galaxy SII. Works for me now. Source: This thread here.

There's a Bluetooth connect & Play app that can intercept the incoming "play" command. While it was originally designed to let you start a specific music app playing when a specific Bluetooth device connects, you can instead select "STOP music from playing" to keep any app from starting when the car connects.

There are several possible approaches to this. If you're using a headset (which I assume you are), there are several apps for headset control allowing you to use your headset button for that (e.g. one click = pause/play, double-click = next, etc.). On the other hand I've seen C Locker is capable of exactly what you're asking for: using the volume rockers ...

I guess you use GEL? If so, it's because of it listening to "Ok Google". Turn off "Hotword detection" in GEL Voice settings and you'll be fine.

Are your headphones defective or have a weak spot? You can try a couple of things, such as testing this on another Android device. It could potentially be the ROM and its ability to detect headphones properly while doing different things (Multi-tasking in a sort of sense). What you can do is go into Settings and turned Motion off. Sometimes it can sense ...

You could give Dock & Share - MP3 Player a try. It's a new app, but has worked well for me.

As I've mentioned in the comments already (and which harbichidian thankfully approved), this can be done using tasker: Condition: State → Docked Task: (put something here you want to be done when placing the device in dock, or substitute some dummy like "Variable Set: %DUMMY = 1") Exit Task: Media Control → Pause There might be several other approaches ...

A good keyword combination is already given by your question: a music player which should play folder-wise should be found using the keywords "folder play", "folder player", and similar combinations. In fact, there are even some players named exactly such, e.g. Music Folder Player, Folder Player, and many more.

One of the advantages of a physical SD card: unmounting and re-mounting it triggers the media scanner. But that's unlikely to be an option for you. 1 Depending on your Android version, there are different apps available on Google Play to help you out. The "version difference": starting with Kitkat, the old mechanism of triggering the media scanner does no ...

Yes: there are essentially three possibilities. Wired headphones often have extra controls inline (on the cable). You have to be careful when buying these: the way the controls signal to the phone is not standardized, so which one you need depends on who manufactured your phone. It's really easy to find "iPhone-compatible" ones, but you may have to search ...

I don't know about this app specifically, but I can answer based on the usual behaviour of music players. If music is playing when you leave the app the usual way, the app starts a foreground service to keep playing the music. This is a special kind of service: it shows an "Ongoing" notification and Android will not kill it to free memory, unless it's really ...

I had this problem. The song worked fine in iTunes, but not in Google Music. The song has an audio glitch in it from recording it from a burned CD, and that is around the spot where the song skips. It's not the MP3 or the song; it's something about Google Music doesn't like the song. My work around: I made an AAC version in iTunes, uploaded that, and it ...

The most obvious explanation is that the file is incomplete: there's only a small fraction of the file there, or only the first section of the file is readable. Given that the symptoms you report in your other question point to SD card failure, that seems the most likely cause for this too. If this is a different SD card, it could be that the card itself ...
