I've had my S9+ for less than two weeks; but in that time, the Samsung Music app has stopped working. A few days ago, it began rapidly cycling through tracks whenever play was selected. No music played, and after quickly cycling through about a dozen tracks, it just stopped in pause mode. This happens whether I'm on shuffle or not, and whether I'm playing songs, albums, always. I've tried problem solving with Samsung Chat, including performing a factory reset, to no avail. The support specialist said it must be a "hardware problem," and recommended I mail the phone to Samsung. I'm about to uninstall and find a different musicmusi. Any ideas?
If it can't be easily repaired, is be interested in recommendations for a different free music app.

Did you download the music from a computer to your device? What tab are you using inside of Samsung music?
The music files are on an external SD card. Almost all were filed there when the card was being used on Galaxy S5, my former phone. The card is now being used on my S9 Plus, where it worked fine with the app until a few days ago. I usually use the TRACKS tab on shuffle when I listen, but the behavior occurs on other tabs, as well, and when not on shuffle.
Have you downloaded any other third party applications since this has began? Have you tried using the SD card in another device?
Glad to hear that worked out fine for you, Are you still experiencing the symptoms?
