I know this is late, but as of September 2015, this problem persists. So here is what i use as a fix. Connect the phone to the PC and browse to the folder where you have music that doesnt show up in the WP music app. Create a new folder at this location (keep it empty, you just have to create a new folder) on the PC, and then go up one folder. At this ...

WP7 Yes, there is! Make sure the Zune is closed and simply change the genre property of the podcast/audiobook file to Podcast in any ID3-tag editing software (the screenshot below is captured in the foobar2000): The main advantage of the foobar2000 is that it lets you modify a bunch of files at once. For example, if you click a right button anywhere in the ...

Cloud Music, Easy File Hub 3 and Easy File Hub 2 will allow you to download music to your phone. They are not free but have a trial version. A program such as OneDrive, SkyMusic will allow you to stream music from your OneDrive but not download.

To fast forward in the Music app, simply tap and hold down the next track button, and the song will skip forward. Release when you want to resume normal playback. To rewind, do the same with the previous track button. This also works with the playback controls in the Volume Bar that pops up when you press the phone's volume keys.

My last idea was successful, and it's actually simple: Uninstalled Nokia Music, and reinstalled it from the Nokia section in marketplace. It seems as if the application retains the phone region settings that were used when the application was first started. Looks like my phone was set to a country to which Nokia Music Mix radio was unavailable, hence ...

Great timing: you will not have to do anything, as right about now browsing and buying Windows Phone apps from the Zune software will be closed down. So you will just have to be patient and wait for this functionality to automatically disappear from Zune. Zune will then only be used for music management and updating the firmware of your phone. This change ...

Currently its not possible without going the reset way, which is why I am tolerating the black background myself. You can request for new features on here. http://windowsphone.uservoice.com/forums/101801-feature-suggestions

Album art that is correctly included in the files will be displayed on the device. If you're using MP3 files, be aware that MP3 have two different metadata formats (ID3), and Windows (and Windows Phone) only supports album art in one of them. I'll recommend you use WMA or M4A instead of MP3, as these formats offer the same sound quality (if not better), and ...

Unfortunately, your current arrangement will not suffice in achieving the end goal. This is a classic case of the fundamental differences between *nix and Windows based systems. Due to the different ways in which both these operating systems handle files and file names, it is currently not possible to use the Linux file system to drop files and have them ...

This feature is now available (as of March 2015). Any music files in supported formats (MP3, M4A and WMA) you add to your OneDrive Music folder can be streamed through Xbox Music on your phone, PC, Xbox or the web player. For more information see Blogging Windows and Windows Central.

Fortunately or unfortunately, this is not a problem that has to do specifically with your firmware update. As mentioned here is a recognized bug and Microsoft is working with Nokia to address this. Your firmware update should have enabled the "Storage Check" module- to access this you need to go into Settings and scroll to the bottom of the list. Detailed ...

Yes and no. Yes there are apps in the store (like Metro Scrobbler) that will scrobble your play history after the fact (or while it's running in the background), there is no live scrobbling solution for Windows Phone 8. Personally I think Microsoft should integrate scrobbling into the Music hub, but that's just me.

Short of using an app like Kill My Music, no, there is no way to press Stop. Of course if you went back to any of the lists (albums, songs, playlists, etc.) you can restart from there. Note apps like these also gets rid of the pop up music controls that appear when you hit the volume buttons. Related: How to get rid of the music player buttons when not ...

This is by design. It will disappear if you unlock your phone whilst no media is playing, and start another app. If the phone is at the lockscreen, and you tap the volume control, the mini-player will show again, along with the volume controls.

Not to my knowledge, but you can use the free foobar2000 audio player and this guide to convert from FLAC to WMA Lossless to play on your WP7 device. Another option is to mount a FLAC image (Surely you have matching .cue files for your .flac files) with Daemons Tools (free version perfectly suitable for the task) and ripping the virtual CD with WMP.

I haven't had this happen to me but it happened on my wife's phone. From what I understand, she downloaded it over the cellular network, and some packets were lost in transit. Best thing to do is just delete the old version and try again. If it keeps happening over the cell data plan, switch to WiFi and see if that solves the problem.

I have seen this problem happen to some other people, and it looks like the only common thing between all of them is that they were downloading the songs via their 3G connection. Just to make sure there is no data corruption wait until you are connected via WiFi to download them or sync them via Zune.

Not all artists have artist wallpaper available, so for some artists you may get album art, or a coloured background.

I had the same issue. When I transferred songs to my Lumia 520 it won't show in Music+Videos. But after restarting my phone, I was able to see all the music files that I transferred. And after that I was able to see the songs everytime.

I am confident that you have Windows Phone 8.0 in your phone. Thus, there is nothing wrong with your phone. Go to settings -> lock screen and turn off Show artists while playing music.

You cannot save songs played on radio service. It's a feature not available on WP (and probably on every mobile platform). Also, you cannot record the sound directly from the system, i.e. you are not allowed to record a song into a .mp3 file. What you can do? You can have the song recognised by an app, like SoundHound or Shazam. Personally, I'd recommend to ...

The issue has been resolved. It turns out the OneDrive and Music apps on my phone were outdated. Updating them fixed the issue and Music was able to access my library on OneDrive.

The audio will get stored only in the app's internal storage. You cannot move that to any other folders/ or phone's memory.

You need to transfer that downloaded music to "Music" folder from "Download" folder by connecting your phone with PC. After that, restart your phone(if needed).

Update: The problem was fixed in the build 10.0.10586.218 Make sure that you have not restricted the background activity of Groove Music player. your phone is not running in battery saver mode.

I noticed that meta-tags on my phone are now syncing automatically as changes are made in Zune. The determining factor seems to be if the device is syncing over WiFi or USB. When plugged in to a USB port the meta-tags will sync.

Meta-tag by itself will not be synced. You'll have to remove the files from the device, and re-sync. If updating a large number of songs, one method could be to save a playlist of all the songs to Zune. After erasing them from the device, copy them back from the playlist.
