I disagree to consider this question as answered. First there is no simple method to access to microSD; second running developer mode for such basic things mean I need to first learn and then start using the phone effectively. Considering this as closed is taking generic presumption that all who own Jolla are comfortable using terminal and developer mode.

same here, it's not a good awnser. There must be an easier way. Using Terminal and typing every filename, is a no usable way.

Plug your jolla to your computer using the usb cable. Copy your music files to the folder called "music" on your jolla. Once done, start the media app. Music should be there.

You just put it somewhere in your filesystem. (Per ssh or by connecting it to your PC). The tracker daemon will index your music automatically.

I have files on my system, but not in my media-player.

That's odd. If you have developer mode enabled you could open up a terminal and try to do a tracker-control -f filename I guess... That should reindex that given file.

Is it working for you yet, TomTomGalore? My Jolla also refused to index music and photos initially, but a few days later it suddenly started to work and has been working since.
