Galaxy S5 :: Music Missing And Not Playing On Android?
Dec 8, 2015
I'm thinking of moving from apple to android to have borrowed my friends S5 to see if i like it. So far its pretty good but i'm struggling with my music. I have a 60gb iTunes library but usually i only have around 20gb (2600 songs) on my iphone. I've tried to get this on to a SD card in the S5 but i keep having problems. Here's what I've tried:
1) sync iTunes using Syncr. - This put most of the music on the phone but android wasn't showing it all. ES file explorer only showed 400 songs, CloudPlayer only showed 776 and Poweramp showed most of them but they had unknown artist and unknown album. Because of the Unknown Artist and Album issue i have gone into iTunes and converted the ID3 tags.
2) sync iTunes using Doubletwist airsync - This seems to have put all of the music on the SD Card however ES File Explorer is only showing 1506 songs, Cloudplayer showins 397 and is trying to import 1005 more, Poweramp is showing 2423 songs but still have unknown artist and unknown album, also some songs will not play, there is no error message displayed.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. The battery life is a bit of a letdown, but I've gotten the hang of USM, so there aren't any issues there while in USM, am I still able to activate the music player via my headset? I do play music quite frequently while I'm travelling, so I'd like to know if that's still possible while in USM.
The volume while playing music is always changing, like one step up or down every 5 minutes give or take.
- I disabled all the sound and equalizer options from the settings to test if that was the cause but it didn't work. - Rebooting the phone also didn't work. - I use Spotify, didn't test any other app yet but I don't have this problem on my Nexus 5 using the same Spotify version. - There is no way the volume keys were pressed accidentally because even when the phone just lies there, flat on the table, this happens. - I am on the latest OTA.
I connect my phone to my car's Bluetooth system during my drive to work in the morning in case I get a call. I usually listen to a podcast on my iPod, then switch to a CD if the podcast episode ends before I get to work. To do so, I flip past my Bluetooth audio setting on my radio. I've already disabled the Bluetooth connection for media in my phone, but all that's done is stop music from playing through the speakers of my car. My phone still begins to auto-play music, either music that's stored in my phone or launching Spotify and starting to play what I last listened to on there. I really don't like having to go onto my phone and close the app while I'm driving.
The phone vibrates when audio is playing even through bluetooth. It's moving around my desk while Pandora is playing. How do I turn this vibration off? I already took off the Haptic feedback and all the feedback for that matter.
My S5 will simply stop playing mp3's whether stored on the sd card or internally. I have tried limiting the number of background apps, tried three different player, and installed an app that is supposed to keep music playing. None of these things have worked. It will randomly shut down at any time on any track and sometimes restart minutes latter. Random stops when playing music?
My 2014 Honda CRV EX automatically starts the music app on my Samsung Galaxy s5 (Music Player) every time I start the car and every time I make or receive a phone call. Is there a way to disable this function but still have a Bluetooth connection for phone calls?
Whenever I play music through my phone, with or without headphones, there is a sporadic noise that sounds similar to a record skipping, but more distorted. It is not the two tone beep others have posted about, nor is it the usual problem with headphones. The sound occurs in multiple audio apps. The default music player worked fine up until about a week ago (maybe two?), then the noise started. At first, a secondary app worked fine, but today that started making the noise as well. Force quitting the default app worked for a while, stopping the noise when I started the app back up, but now it goes back to the noise almost immediately. What this noise is or how to stop it permanently?
I'm using the stock MUSIC App/Widget ... I have the phone connected via Bluetooth to a portable speaker. It will play for a while (like 20-30 mins) and suddenly just stop playing. I check the APP on the phone & I press the PLAY button and in continues just fine - almost like STOP was pressed. I don't have any settings for turning it off after a certain time. This seems to happen intermittently on either of the Bluetooth accessories I pair with the phone. (Headphones or Speaker).
Since the lollipop update I can't turn off the "new sms message" on my radio while playing music through bluetooth. Before the update I could just turn my phone on vibrate or mute and the alerts wouldn't interrupt my music. I'll be singing along to a song when suddenly the music stops, an alert tone comes on and the "new sms message" pops up on my radio display. It's bad enough that half of my apps stop working randomly for no reason since the update.
I have an SIII but no one seems to be viewing those forums so I thought I would ask here. I've always stored my music in folders sorted by artist and never bothered with tagging as long as the file names started with numbers. I have over 300 gigs in music so I'm not about to start tagging now. my 32 gig sd card has 4500 music files.The music player doesn't play nice with my sorting - artist view winds up showing the same artists 10 times or sorts out compiltation albums while folder view has every single album (300-400 or so) sorted alphabetically.
I would like to go into the external sd card and play directly from there. I can do that, but only a single track will play and you can't use any other apps or browse when the track plays. Am I stupid or something?This is the main reason why I've always used Cowon music players or my sansa clip, I can simply go into folders and play. I have media monkey and love it but even there I use the folder directory.
When I go to the music player and select a song to play, I get a message that tells me to plug in my headphones. The issue is that my headphones are plugged in. I didn't have this issue a week ago. I was listening to my music just fine. I have rebooted the device several times already. The weird thing is that I can hear the boot up sounds through my headphones, as well as notifications. I just can't play music. I have the same issue with the FM radio.
In recent i upgraded my Xperia Mini pro to Android 4.0. Since my mobile is not playing video files properly, videos are all playing very slowly. Is there any option to rectify this problem? or else is it possible to degrade to android 2.6 V.
I had CWM a couple of years ago but now suddenly Nokia Music says that this computer is not the registered one. It worked couple of days ago and is still the same one. I had to reinstall Win7 a month ago and had to register it as 'new' one but after that it worked flawless.
So those 90 days between changing of computer has not passed yet.
Bluetooth artist/album/track info from WIMP is not shown in the car display when playing. Sometimes the info for the first track is shown but not updated when playing next track, other times "no artist/album/track info".
I purchased a nokia N8 with a ovi music unlimited package.Initially everything was fine but some days latter suddenly whenever I download songs through Ovi player and transfer them to Nokia N8, the phone dosent play them and says 'Licence expired or missing. Get new license?' and then each song takes a minute or so to get a new licence key.
Every time i format my memory crd, music files frm the card start missing within 9 or 10 days. This problem persist since the tym i bought mine cell phone. I sub mitted mine phone many times in nokia care, but each n every time they said mine mobile hav sm virus which is 'eating' mine files. Thy hard reset n gv mine cell back, but problem not solved. They formated mine cell some 7 or 8 times. Sometime whole gallary disaapear frm the phone.
Anyone had this problem? The widget is still on my desktop, kind of... but it doesn't have a name or a picture and it doesn't work. If I open the tray with my apps, there's no sign of the Market. It's also nowhere to be found on my AppBrain backups.
I'm having a problem with my HTC One only playing music out of one headphone, there is music coming out of the other headphone however it is very quiet. I have tried cleaning the connections and I've tried different headphone. I have checked this on a Bluetooth speaker as well and I have the same problem with that. I have checked settings and there is nothing in there is fix the issue (or I have missed it).
My iPhone will not play my music through its built in speaker or headphones, but it will play music when I connect it to my ihome. Also my ringtone will play so I know the speaker is not broken. When I try to play music it does not give me an option to adjust volume and the buttons on the side will not adjust the volume either.
whenever I try to play music on my iPhone 4, the music stays at 0:00 and never plays the song. This even happens when I'm not wearing my Beats and when my phone isn't connected to an iHome.It works fine on iPad and MacBook Pro.
Atrix 2 - after downloading Android 4.0.4, green phone icon is missing. The app icon is not in any tray, any screen, or the generalized app listings. However, it is listed as running when you select "Manage Apps." Doing a force stop, then rebooting unit does not restore the icon, even though it is listed as launch by default. Technically, app is "Phone", version 4.0.4-67.21.125. How can I restore it? (Workaround - select People, then small icon phone/dialpad.)
