How do I play music that I have put on my SD card on my Samsung phone?

I have put songs onto my external SD card; however, it will not play on my Samsung phone.

Regardless of how old or new your Samsung Android phone is, it comes with a stock music player that you can use to play songs that are on your SD card from your phone. However, you will need to reformat the card on your phone in order for your phone's applications to recognize the card. This will wipe all of your card's data, so make sure you backup everything to your computer. To format your card and use it in your Samsung phone's music player application, follow the simple steps below:
