I wish this help you You can do it by below code which use MediaStore.Please add the external storage permission. android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"
The code is -
code :
public ArrayList<HashMap<String, String>> getSDCardAudioFiles() {
        // if you want  file path and additional details
        ArrayList<HashMap<String, String>> audioFilesDetailList = new ArrayList<HashMap<String, String>>();
        // if you want only file path
        ArrayList<String> audioFilePath =new ArrayList<String>();
        // if you want only file name
        ArrayList<String> audioFileName =new ArrayList<String>();
            Cursor mCursor = getContentResolver().query(
                    new String[] { MediaStore.Audio.Media.DISPLAY_NAME,
                            MediaStore.Audio.Media.DATA }, null, null, null);

            int count = mCursor.getCount();

            HashMap<String, String> audioFileMap;
            while (mCursor.moveToNext()) {
                audioFileMap = new HashMap<String, String>();
                audioFileMap.put("FilePath", mCursor.getString(mCursor

                    // if you want only file path
                     // if you want only file name 
            //return the arraylist whichever u needed
            return audioFilesDetailList;

To fix this issue OK, after many iterations of trying, I finally have an example that works and I thought I'd share it. My example queries the images MediaStore, then obtains the thumbnail for each image to display in a view. A few tweaks should provide you with the code needed to query the audio MediaStore instead. I am loading my images into a Gallery object, but that is not a requirement for this code to work:
Make sure you have a Cursor and int for the column index defined at the class level so that the Gallery's ImageAdapter has access to them:
code :
private Cursor cursor;
private int columnIndex;
Gallery g = (Gallery) findViewById(R.id.gallery);
// request only the image ID to be returned
String[] projection = {MediaStore.Images.Media._ID};
// Create the cursor pointing to the SDCard
cursor = managedQuery( MediaStore.Images.Media.EXTERNAL_CONTENT_URI,
        MediaStore.Images.Media.DATA + " like ? ",
        new String[] {"%myimagesfolder%"},  
// Get the column index of the image ID
columnIndex = cursor.getColumnIndexOrThrow(MediaStore.Images.Media._ID);
g.setAdapter(new ImageAdapter(this));
public View getView(int position, View convertView, ViewGroup parent) {
    ImageView i = new ImageView(context);
    // Move cursor to current position
    // Get the current value for the requested column
    int imageID = cursor.getInt(columnIndex);
    // obtain the image URI
    Uri uri = Uri.withAppendedPath( MediaStore.Images.Media.EXTERNAL_CONTENT_URI, Integer.toString(imageID) );
    String url = uri.toString();
    // Set the content of the image based on the image URI
    int originalImageId = Integer.parseInt(url.substring(url.lastIndexOf("/") + 1, url.length()));
    Bitmap b = MediaStore.Images.Thumbnails.getThumbnail(getContentResolver(),
                    originalImageId, MediaStore.Images.Thumbnails.MINI_KIND, null);
    i.setLayoutParams(new Gallery.LayoutParams(150, 100));
    return i;

it should still fix some issue It is "external" or "internal" although internal (system files) is probably not useful here.
code :
ContentResolver cr = context.getContentResolver();
Uri uri = MediaStore.Files.getContentUri("external");

// every column, although that is huge waste, you probably need
// BaseColumns.DATA (the path) only.
String[] projection = null;

// exclude media files, they would be here also.
String selection = MediaStore.Files.FileColumns.MEDIA_TYPE + "="
        + MediaStore.Files.FileColumns.MEDIA_TYPE_NONE;
String[] selectionArgs = null; // there is no ? in selection so null here

String sortOrder = null; // unordered
Cursor allNonMediaFiles = cr.query(uri, projection, selection, selectionArgs, sortOrder);
// only pdf
String selectionMimeType = MediaStore.Files.FileColumns.MIME_TYPE + "=?";
String mimeType = MimeTypeMap.getSingleton().getMimeTypeFromExtension("pdf");
String[] selectionArgsPdf = new String[]{ mimeType };
Cursor allPdfFiles = cr.query(uri, projection, selectionMimeType, selectionArgsPdf, sortOrder);
Is it possible to filter or remove results shown when using PICK_ACTION and MediaStore.Audio.Media.EXTERNAL_CONTENT_URI?

hop of those help? No, it does not seem possible at this time. I ended up writing my own activity for selection and it queries the media store as appropriate.
The solution can be found here:

seems to work fine Do you know this - http://developer.android.com/reference/android/media/MediaMetadataRetriever.html
code :
MediaMetadataRetriever metaRetriver;
metaRetriver = new MediaMetadataRetriever();

try {
        byte [] art = metaRetriver.getEmbeddedPicture();
        Bitmap songImage = BitmapFactory
            .decodeByteArray(art, 0, art.length);
        String artist = metaRetriver
        String genre = metaRetriver
    } catch (Exception e) {
         // TO-DO Exception
