Appears that your battery has gone to battery heaven - replace it.

Maybe the polarity of the batteries is installed backwards. If not, the camera is in need of repair.

Your camera will use a pre defined directory to store pictures and videos, it will use this same directory to display pictures and play back videos. You cannot change this directory. What you can try and do is add the music to the same directory where your photos and videos are and hope that when you browse through your pictures and videos on the camera that it has a codec capable of decoding your audio files. For the most part at the moment you simply transferred the files onto the memory of the camera, this does not necessarily mean that the camera will be capable of playing those files back. What you can do however, is hook the camera up to another device that is capable of playing the files (like another PC) and transfer your files onto it and play them back there. There is no guarantee that your camera will be able to play back your music files that you have transferred. You will have to find out what file types the camera supports for playback and convert your music files to that if possible (which it may not be).
