I have been following this tutorial on tabs and icons.

http://developer.android.com/resources/tutorials/views/hello-tabwidget.html

I created all the files without errors from copying the code, and placed the icons in the 3 directories as there isnt a simple res/ dir. Eclipse has drawables in res/hdpi  res/ldpi etc

Anyway I get a force to  close errorwhen running the program  and after simply copying all the code, where do I go from here?

Yes, it did work for me
The main isse for me was to add these three additional activty - Albums, Artists, Song to the manifest file.
Checke if you did it, if not add them and check if it works

I aslo created foilder drawable i  res and placed there three xml files and two .png files which I downloaded with icons
after that it worked - trty if it doeas not work - ill make spnapshot of my project picture

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    package="com.example7"
    android:versionCode="1"
    android:versionName="1.0" >

    <uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="10" />

    <application
        android:icon="@drawable/ic_launcher"
        android:label="@string/app_name" >
        <activity
            android:name=".HelloTabWidget2Activity"
            android:label="@string/app_name" 
            android:theme="@android:style/Theme.NoTitleBar">
            <intent-filter>
                <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />

                <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
            </intent-filter>
        </activity>
      <activity
            android:name=".AlbumsActivity"/> 
           <activity
            android:name=".ArtistsActivity"/> 
              <activity
            android:name=".SongsActivity"/>       
        
    </application>

</manifest>
