I'm completely baffled! Although I have had not much reason to transfer files. I'm trying to setup 2 new devices and have lost 2 music players to the wind along with all 2000 titles or tracks.now I found d a couple of apps that work beautifully on my Galaxy Note 10+ & was able to download to my new Tablet Galaxy Tab S10 Ultra, but when I attempted to play any of the tunes I got a message saying not formatted for this device. Strange as the are both Samsung Galaxy devices.
Little back story, as some here may know I've been very frustrated with Microsoft! I've no problem with Windows but to have that I have to use Microsoft, so I got me a Acer -317-cb317-1ht Chromebook, but ivr not finished setting it up yet still trying to learn the "roaps" the reason I lost some apps I figured was due to getting rid of all things Microsoft on my Android devices. Bit that shouldn't affect Poweramp or MediaMonkey, with PowerAmp being my favorite. Anyway, I tried to download all the music from my files, as well a usb storage unit but with no luck. Any assistance you beautiful peeps could give this old kitten would be fantastic. Cheers Oldbroad Angela

If you are using an external sd card to store the music on your Note 10+, it depends on what the sd card was formatted to, ie: exFAT NFTS, or FAT32. 

Typically FAT32 is the most compatible format across Android devices. 

My "first coffee of the day" answer, is to convert the music to a format compatible with your Tablet. 

Even though they are both Samsung devices, external sd cards can be formatted to something that can't be read by a device that used a different format for removable storage.

Thanks so very much RDR. I've mad some settling changes thans to you & others, have got MediaMonkey back but still no Poweramp. But I ve downloaded quite a few music players as suggested here & on Google all but a few uploaded music from internal storage (don't use sd card) & I've found 4 that play on both android devices but nothing yet for my Chromebook. Had a suggestion to install Lynus mint, but I'd like to stay with Google since I've been Google/Chrome user forever with never had any problems except one hacking from (I think) Facebook to the tune of a bit over $500.00 USD, but my bank caught real fast & got it sorted. Life with computers! 🤭🤣. RDR, I've yet to fine a place to conclude these posts as solved. But with what you've helped with & a couple others, this topic is solved. Cheers all.
