 I've found the solution :

It is that I use the name of my sdcard image as my drive name, not the
name of the folder that stock the image. The path look like this : "/
sdcard/dcim/Camera/Songs/track1.mp3" as my image's name is

Anyway thanks for those who have viewed my post :)

The file which present in the path /myandroid/dcim/Camera/Songs/ is in
Linux File System, the Android Music player (i.e Media player) can
only find the files inside the andorid file system (AFS). SO you have
to place that file inside the android file system, I think that;s what
you did by pushing the mp3 file to the sdcard and using that sdcard

I think now you got the clear idea about that.
