I HAVE to use that dir to store my music, beccause that's the only dir that can be written to by 3rd party apps since android 4.4 (yeah great)

Now the thing is that Music player doesn't auto pick it up, even after restart. So, how to add the music from it to the player?

Check you don't have a .nomedia in that folder or any of the parent folders

This is how I make the stock music player pick-up songs from extcard..
1. Make a folder named Media in your extcard
2. Make another folder named Music also in your extcard
3. Move all your music files in the Media folder in extcard
4. Then lastly move your music files from Media folder to Music folder in extcard..
5. Viola.. You had your music files pick up by the stock music player. .

Yeah that works of course but as it is obvious from the OP this is not a solution in this case, since other, deep folder HAS to be used.
So your post is USELESS.

Yes, cute, right?
Well, silence is better than ignorance. I mean i'm clearly stating that root dir folder won't cut it, so what's the point of posting that?
I mean I appreciate his time writing all that, but if he spend just fraction of that time actually reading my post....he won't be wasting his time.

I know I use iSyncr to sync my music files from iTunes, and the latest version syncs on my extSdCard inside /android/data/com.jrtstudio.isyncr/music and shows up in Play Music just fine.

So I guess you may want to contact the developer to see how he does it and maybe come up with an app to solve your issue?

Alternatively, use something like PowerAMP that should detect the files just fine.
