I have a 32GB SD card on my phone, with all music library on it (folder /Music), but I don't see an option to add music folder from external storage

Why is it so?

No one knows? Really?

What exact phone models is it?

There has to be a way to add it by 'specify path manually', you will have to use another app to figure out what the actual path of your external SD card is, typically /mnt/something.
Another workaround, add whole /mnt manually and browse it to figure out where the card is mounted.

Lenovo A606, MicroSDHC 32 Gb.

Added "/storage/sdcard1/Music" - works fine. Thanks for the reply.

Interesting, thanks for getting back to me with the results.

Newer Android versions - M and up - standardize on putting all storage devices under /storage, but with old versions it's pretty much random. We're still improving our detection schemes, hopefully the next fb2k update will do better at this.
