    I have a Nokia Lumia 822 Windows Phone 8. I like the phone, but not crazy about the music player app. The main problem is that some of the songs don't show up on the phone. I formatted the micro SD card in the phone, then transferred music to it. When I opened a the Nokia music player app, some of the songs don't appear in the albums or in the artists' list even though the artists are there. Some albums seem to be missing more than half the songs. Just to test it, I put the SD card in my Android phone (not using it as a phone anymore) and started the Mixzing player. Voila, all the music is there. I wish the Mixzing player was available on the Windows Phone 8 platform.
    Any idea, anyone?

    What did you use to transfer, just drag and drop?

    My money is on the codecs.

    WP8 (like WP7, iOS, and default Android) has a fairly limited set of music codecs.

    If you pick a random tune that isn't showing up, let us know what format it is in.
