    Playing music on SD Card

    Hi there everyone I am new to these forums. I have recently transfered all my music to my sd card and now google play is not reading the music on the sd card. I don't have acess to a computer to sync it. Is there a app I can get from the store that will allow me to play the music on my sd card or is there another way to do it?

    Welcome to the forum. Glad you decided to join us. Give Power Amp a try, if you like it there's a paid version with more features. Google Play Music will need a PC to sync with.

    That's weird because all of my music is on my external SD card and Google Play Music Manager plays the music no problem.

    there is a bug in ICS for music/media store where it wont play external1 sdcard music (it will just scroll through it), in settings>apps find and clear cache for google music, and then clear cache in media store, it will then find the media and create a new path to it which should allow it to play

    I had to do this twice already after ICS upgrade, if you remove/erase the sdcard, it wont clear the external music/media and still tries to read it as though it is still there. ideally, you would think once you remove the external sccard, all media is gone, and the Google Play App should say something like " mo media found", but it doesnt.
