Can't play local files on my Android phone

Can't play local files on my Android phone







Samsung Galaxy J16


My Question or Issue

I have downloaded music files on my desktop as mp3 files, and have set their source file as usable in my Settings for Local Files. I have no problem playing them on my desktop. However, they appear on my phone as greyed out, and not downloaded, unlike the rest of the songs in the playlist I have added them to. I have tried the solutions in this post: , but they did not work. Any help would be great!
