    I put mp3's in the root of the touchpad directory. I made a music folder and tried that. I restarted it after i did that both times and still it says there is no music....

    I threw my mp3's in my DCIM folder and they all showed up with no restart. This to me is broken. There should be an option to choose music folders to index from the music app.

    Oh well HP Play isn't available for Linux atm. HP Play was DESIGNED for those who wanted to get music on their Touchpad(and all webOS devices).

    I think the problem is with this is the Media Indexer. It LOOKS for files in DCIM because that's where the camera is, but I don't think the Music/Video folders have specified folders they're looking for. Not totally sure on that one.

    videos don't have specific folders but music must be set somewhere not accessible to the user in the device or it would have picked it up in another location in my earlier attempts.

    If you had to put your music in the DCIM folder, then you may be hit by the media indexer bug (link). I was able to put my music into a "/Music" folder and it was recognized on my TouchPad.

    ok, folks... Here is the much awaited definitive solution to Mp3 music on TouchPad.
    1. Make a FOLDER in the "root" area that is available to you whenn you first plug in the USB cable to your pc -- the folder should be named EXACTLY:
    /AmazonMP3/
    2. Copy your mp3 files EITHER into this folder as a messy mishmash, OR, copy the entire nicely organized /artist/album/song_title.mp3 structure over entirely intact from your PC.

    3. You're welcome.

    I couldn't get my TouchPad to scan the USB portion of the device when I properly ejected (stopped) the TouchPad USB device from Windows (XP and 7). Only when I improperly disconnected the TouchPad did it scan for the files. (I'm not recommending this, but that's the only way I got it to find the files. TouchPad restarts didn't help my situation for some reason.)

    The problem is with the indexer. It searches all the folders on your USB drive, and will find all the files eventually, but there is no time limit on how long until it launches.

    Also, I do want to mention that AudiophileHD uses its own indexer, so it should catch any files that are not being found by the stock app.

    dont have to do the following, any change in usb mode will cause media indexer to rescan.

    I had create a music folder and added music and no music player would see it(after multiple restarts and app installs, even try saving files from the internet hoping to kick off something, 3 days later, hooked up to usb mode and deleted files from my download folder, ejected device(ubuntu) first time when i added music was in windows and windows wouldnt eject device, first thought that was the reason till i read people who eject correctly and still had issues...but anyway after ejecting music files were now listed in the player, no change to music folder or creating another folder as below

    wish i had just connected to usb mode and disconnected w/out making any changes to see if it would've reindex and found the music files.

    I definitely don't recommend this. Could cause your TP to become unstable. This is posted elsewhere in the forums and seems like a common problem. Do not us the "Safely Remove" function under Linux or Windows to eject the TP. Use the "Eject" option to properly eject the TP and wait until the TP is back at the home screen before removing the USB cable. It should start indexing your files immediately afterwards. Good luck!

    Ok, this is good information. So after choosing to eject the TP, wait until the TP no longer shows the USB Icon? How long does this take?

    I can report that I was able to get MP3s over to the TouchPad by just copying over several artist folders and putting them in the root. The music player found them all.

    For example, I had a folder on my desktop called "Jonathan Coulton" and under it there are several folders for his albums, and in each album folder has the songs. I just dragged this folder to the root of the drive that appears when I attached the TouchPad. I didn't need to make any special /Music or /AmazonMP3 folder for webOS to find them.

    I copied music and pictures Weds night and neither app 'saw' the files. Turned off and back on, back to USB and eject, eventually gave up. Thursday morning I did a restart holding power & home buttons and voila! I finally had music and photos. Hopefully they will find and fix the indexer problem soon.

    edit: no special folder names, just whatever I called them when I copied the files

    My pity for you guys. Please try this.

    Create a FOLDER "MUSIC" on your touchpad in USB mode. (In caps)

    Just drag and drop your album folder into this.

    It should work.

    *.mp4 files can also be loaded here and they should also be detected fine, except they do not have a file name.

    Call the folder .Music/ and the album art won't be loaded into the pictures app as well I believe.

    I believe if you hide (that is what the "." is doing) the Music folder it will not be indexed and will not show in the Music Player.
