Okay, I'll admit I need a little help. I'm looking for a good cloud storage out there for all of my favorite mp3 music (about 6 gigs worth and growing).  I want to access my music on all of my devices (Android phone and tablet as well as Windows laptop and desktop), keep everything synced while on WiFi, and be able to access it on the device while not on WiFi. Accessing my music while offline is most important. I'm willing to pay a little bit for a service if I need to.

I'm currently using Google Drive but it doesn't keep things on my device unless it uses the internal storage, which I don't have a lot of. From what I understand Google Drive on Android doesn't take advantage of media cards yet. I looked into formatting my card as internal storage but that's blocked by my phone's carrier and my tablet isn't new enough :(


One tekkie nerd to another out there somewhere... little help here?

Have you looked into Amazon's cloud?  I'm not sure if it would be any better than Google Drive, though.

See if you can use Google Music - Drive is cumbersome if you https://play.google....listen?authuser- it lets you take your CD/MP3's autoupload them to Google - There is like a 50k track limit so it's not bound to gigabytes just the number of tracks.  Not sure how many tracks 6GB is but it might be a solution you could use.  


I even purchased Frozen and some other tracks through Google Play Music and was able to d/l them to my cellphone and play them w/o internet.  


There is a mac and Windows app that will literally auto upload your tracks every time you rip them, if you purchase through Google of course they'll auto be available.
