    Not sure if everyone already knows this and I look like a complete idiot
    Or
    If I'm the only person with enough music to actually need it
    Anyway
    When you open the music player and go to songs you can type things in and it will search it like the search in iTunes

    I hope you're not suggesting you discovered a search function in a music program =P

    Oh sweet I didn't know that! You taught me something, thanks :)

    One thing I don't get about the music part is... my Taylor Swift CD won't show up on my Droid! I have maybe six other albums on there, all of them are CDs I had on my computer and moved over to Droid, Taytay is the only one that won't go over. When I plug it in to my computer though, it says that its in there. I dunno what's up maybe Droid is too macho to play Taylor Swift?

    To which music player are you referring. I have Music Online and iMusic. I am new to the smartphone thing and have a hard time finding songs i download. I eventualy find them but would like a music player that finds my music automaticaly.

    Loving my :motdroidvert: since 11/6/09

    you can also search for music from the search widget on the desktop (or by pressing the magnifying glass) if you go into settings, search, searchable items. Then you can search for music from whatever screen you are on.

    Yep, not enough songs. But I always put it on shuffle and let it play.

    I think you answered your own question :icon_eek:

    Just kidding of course, my guess is the culprit would be DRM.

    Off topic.. she is my celebrity crush haha [​IMG]

    I have both her CDs on mine. :)

    You have to be careful with them though because the music CDs have a data partition on them that tries to auto-launch some sort of software when you insert it. I'm not sure what it does because I don't run Windows or OSX , but it's probably some goofy digital copy scheme (remember the brouhaha with the Sony / BMG rootkit?). Anyway if you're a Windows user, you should ALWAYS keep auto-run disabled. It will save you much pain.

    You don't need to do that... the Google search box on the home screen will also search your music.

    How come when I say a song title or artist in google voice search it only brings up web pages. I have music selected in settings for search but I never get the actual song in my music player to show up. any suggestions?

    I'm with ya on that one. At the moment, it seems like there's no way to bring up music with the voice commands. I would love to see a feature like this. "Play Artist _____" would be fantastic!
