I tried everything I could think of and find online, from, converting the music files to a different format (MP3 to WMA) , shortening the file names, pasting shortcuts into the GTA user music folder, but it still won't work. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should do? What I'm doing wrong?

You need to have the game scan the music first before you can play any of your songs in the game.
While you're in the game, go into the pause menu, select the Audio tab, and then select the "Quick Scan" or "Complete Scan" options. The game will check and index what songs you have in the user music folder, and load them into the game for you to listen to.
Hope that helps!
