    Do you know why music that I transfered over to the Droid shows up on the SD card when looking using Estrong but in the actual stock music player the file isnt there?

    I also see that things I deleted are still showing in the stock media player list then I click on that song and it plays another song.

    The stock player stinks.... agree? or I am doing something wrong?

    thanks for the help

    There are two possible reasons for this. 1. Files are in an unsupported format (like WMA) or probably more likely... they are protected files (coming from iTunes?). I'd it is the first, just convert to a supported format(ie. Mp3), if the second you will have to burn them to CD and then rip them back into?MP3 files to strip off the DRM

    Strange I transferred the files using Estrong and the media player doesnt see the files. I now re-transfered using the usb cable and it now sees the files.
