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 ...
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.
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.

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.
There are multiple ways to sync music between your computer and your phone running Windows 8.1 or 10.
Sync with OneDrive
If you are logged in with the same MS account both into your PC and phone, you can simply drag & drop files into your OneDrive Music folder. All of your files will be available in Groove. (By default it will stream the music, but ...
I have noticed that even if you copied it to the SD card like that, you can manually move one (or more) of the songs in the phone memory with a file manager – they will show up in the XBox Music app – and using the app you will move the files back to the SD card. Not the best solution but it's A solution.
The easiest way to rid the volume controls of music playing is to play a video. It can be a video you recorded with your camera, or one you've synced to your Videos section. Start and end the video, and the music is no longer in your volume controls. It's a workaround, but it's much quicker than rebooting the phone.
Back up all the songs.
Clear the thumbnail cache of Music. (Music folder of Phone memory).
Use Windows Phone's desktop app to sync the music.
If you want to copy via Explorer you should rearrange your music
folder structure as Music Folder > Artist Folder > Album Folder >
Apparently I needed to login Xbox.com as well and manage the settings under Security Family and forums>>Privacy and Online safety. (For both Xbox One and Xbox 360).
Once this was done he could download songs. (This will probably fix the gaming filters that we originally wanted to setup too.
You should be able to delete files from SD card trough Windows installed computer. Connect the phone via USB cable to computer and Windows should install basic drivers that will let you explore the contents of your phone.
If you can't then try inserting your Mini SD card into SD card adapter and then into card reader. By doing that, you will get full ...
That option is for playing music that is not on your device (as opposed to the "On My Phone" option). Currently, such music can come from two sources:
The Xbox Music catalogue
The Music folder on your OneDrive (see also this answer)
Obviously, in both cases an internet connection (whether WiFi or cellular) is required. The first option additionally ...
There is a simple method to do so. The audio received by WhatsApp is stored in the following folder:
Files → SD card → Pictures → WhatsApp
You can just open this and copy that audio file to the music folder on your SD card, and your audio file will automatically appear in your music list.
I recommend Loco Music Player. It's really fast, fluid and it does let you pick specific folders to play the music from. It's $1.49, but it's absolutely worth it. Check out the reviews and give it a try. Link: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/apps/loco-music-player/9wzdncrfjh3b
Follow these steps:
Click on System
Select Groove Music
Click the Advanced options link
Click the Reset button
Click Reset one more time to confirm.
Using the reset feature will delete all the app data on the device, including preferences and sign-in details.
Windows Phone uses MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) for file transfer. I don't know what the state of MTP support in OS X is, but there must be some (even if it's third-party) so I'd start there. If that still only shows one file, you've got something really weird going on.
You can, of course, use other methods to transfer the files. Email them to yourself, ...

Currently the only way to get rid of the player controls is using an app like "Stop the music" (I'm not the developer and there are several other ones doing the same).

The exact behaviour can vary slightly depending on the app, but in the Music app, a single press means Play/Pause, double press (as you discovered) skips to the next track, and triple press goes back to the previous track.
In Nokia Mix Radio, the button works the same, except triple press isn't supported.
In Podcasts, single press also means Play/Pause, ...
