Also, I put the card into my PC (I have a vista which has a place to stick SD cards right in) and I added a song to it. Then when I put it in my phone and found the song, it tells me that the license expired and cannot open the song. So do I still need to buy the USB cord to to connect the phone to my PC?
Well if you purchased the song from some sort of service that had drm restrictions on it or something you may not be able to transfer those songs to another device/computer. That's what seems like happened. You don't need to get a usb cord since you already have a card reader. You can always get applications that will allow you to convert the songs into another format (which usually strips that sort of protection from the file). Google is your friend.
well im having problems getting my music to be recognized in my music player.. it shows up in the memory card using the reader but "no songs" shows up when i try to play it on the music player.. someone help please
when you connect the phone to your PC thru USB cable. your winxp should see the phone folders. copy all your mp3 to music folder. you need to add songs to play list or browse thru all tracks to play them.
this is a response to mickee55 and lgkevin. to get the songs from the memory card ot the music player you have to go to the settings tab in the menu, then click on "more", then "connections", then "USB connection mode", under that tab select "mass storage". now go back to music player and it will automatically update the music from your card into the music library
This message is in response to Bruce, but if anyone can weigh-in on this, please help! I tried to use the suggested connect format for mass storage since I did not use a data cable to transfer my mp3 formatted files. Even though the microSD can be played through the card reader I used to transfer the music, the phone continues to not be able to read the music regardless of connection setting or conversion process used for the music file.
Can anyone confirm that they were able to successfully play music that was transferred via a card reader versus a data cable?
