Re: wont play music on sd card
Its just a simple problem! the phone player reads the music files only in the MUSIC folder so, u must have put the music directly to the card which will be there on the card but outside. move the music in the folder named MUSIC and then try refreshing your phone playlist it will find all the songs!!!

Save the music onto the computer from the SD Card. Format the SD Card, It should give you this option in the phone and on the computer in my computer. Redownload the songs to the SD Card and try to reinsert the card. See what happens...
the device has to format the card. at this time the phone will create folders for music, videos, images, and what not. now when you insert the card into your computer you will open the card and copy the files to the music folder. this will allow access to the files from the handset visual platform. Good Luck and please rate this solution!! :D
I had the same problem. so what i did is i created a back up on my computer and format it the sd card. and it had a bad file in it that was causing the problem. once i format it the card it was ready to be used again. just make sure you look for that corrupt file so you don't put it again to the already clean card. also i removed the sd card from the g1 and plugged it straigt to the computer. I hope this can help you like it helped me.
i recently got the samsung gravity as well and had a 4gb card for it and got the same problem.... from what i have found its not the size of the card its that the phone does not support the (HC - high capicity) micro sd card. I went down and bought a regular 2gb microsd card and popped it in and it works fine. also all you have to do to put music on the card is drag(from your pc) and drop into the music folder(on the sd card). hope this helps. have a great day!!
After reading through the archives of related problems, I decided to try some of the suggestions. Here is what I did for my LG Shine...I checked the sd card on the computer to make sure all the data i transferred was on the card and it was. After that, I use the music player on the cell phone to load the music into my library and was able to listen to the music stored on the sd card.The music which was downloaded to the sd card will only play through the music player on the cell phone and for the ringtones I went to the website and made my ringtones. http://makeownringtone.com/ This is the fool proof way of making your favorite songs your ringtone. Follow the instructions giving and in under 3 mins you can make your ringtone. The ringtones have to be under 300kb and in the mp3 format. Its really simple and easy to use and downloaded them to my computer. Hint of advice: email it to yourself that way you can forward it to your friends and family. Might I remind you that its FREE!!!!
When you put the SD card into your laptop, it should show-up as a hard drive (one of your drive letters on a Windows machine).
Copy or drag your music files from your computer's hard drive to the "music" folder (it might be named "audio", I can't recall) on the SD card. This folder should be there if the card was previously in your phone. Once the files are copied there, they should play on the phone.
If you still have problems, try reducing the bit rate on the music files. I'm not sure how high of a bit rate this phone can handle. So, for example, if your music is encoded at 256kbps, try reducing them down to 192kbps. I'm not 100% on this, but it's worth trying.
