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.

I, too, have a 4GB memory card, and the camera will not save to the memory card (I also have a 1GB memory card, and the camera had no problem saving to the memory card.
 
For the music, I have had no problems with my music playing or the phone seeing any of my 300 songs.  Are you putting your songs straight into the root folder of the memory card?  In other words, when you explore your memory card on your computer, do you see your songs as soon as you open it?  My music is in a "Music" folder... this may be your problem, and my phone plays wma's along with mp3's. 
 
These are the folders on my memory card:  Music, Audio, Games & Applications, Graphics, Images, Java, MTP, Other Files, Sounds, Videos. 
 
I would leave the first letter of each word capitalized just to make sure there are no problems (the PlayStation 3 needs them in all capitals, that is why I say this).  Most of the folders are self explanitory, Graphics and Images seem to be the same as the phone sees them both, but the phone saves pictures in the Graphics folder, and ringtones are in the Sounds folder.  The Vu can only use up to 30 second songs for ringtones, so if you want a song as a ringtone, you will have to edit the song down to 30 seconds or less in order to use it, you can't use the whole song has a ringtone. 
 
Hope this helps.

I would try formatting the memory card.  You usually do not have to do this, but for some reason the Vu doesn't like anything higher than a 2GB memory card.  I had all my stuff on a 4GB memory card that I had in my Motorola, so the Vu could see everything on the card, it just wouldn't save the pictures to it, that is when I went to a 1GB memory card.  If you still can't get the phone to read the 4GB memory card after formatting it, then I would switch to a 2GB or 1GB memory card.

I am having a problem with the Vu. I bought the phone 2 days ago and saved all of my songs and pictures to my 1 KG SD card. When I put the card in the computer, all of my pictures and songs show up that way. When I put the card in the Vu, the memory card is recongnized but does not show any of my songs or pictures. I have taken a few pictures with the VU and they are saved to the memory card automatically and I am able to see them that way. Also, I had some song blue toothed and at first they showed up and I was able to play them on the music player but when someone send a song to me in a text and I saved that then the songs I blue toothed were gone and I was only able to see the song I saved from the text message. I saved that song to my ringtones. When I try to copy it or move it to my memory card, I select the music folder but it will not open. What am I donig wrong and how can I fix this problem.

I just got this phone and have a 1GB san disk micro sd card in it. the phone says "card not ready" when i try to access it and also when i try to connect the phone to my computer it says I need to insert a memory card. I have searched endless forums for a solution to this and spoken with ATT and LG and have gotten no where. I know the card works, I had it in a Pantech Duo before this. I have tried 'formatting' the card by taking my battery out while the phone was still on. Putting it back in powering it and trying to take a picture and save it to my memory card and the phone still doesn't recognize my card (All of this LG told me to do) If anyone has any help I'd appreciate it!! I am about to pull my hair out with this problem Smiley Happy thanks

Are you sure your memory card is good?  I ask this knowing it was working before you pulled it out of the previous device, but all it takes is one time to remove the card unsafely and it will destroy the card.  Same thing happens with Flash Drives, if it is not stopped before pulling it out of the computer, it can destroy the Drive.  Have you tried plugging the card straight into the computer to make sure you can add and remove files from it?  I had a Flash Drive that was working fine, then all of a sudden I could pull files off of it, but not erase or put new files onto it.  That is why I ask if the memory card is good.  I would test it on the computer (NOT IN THE PHONE, use either with a USB adapter or memory card reader if you don't have one built into your computer) to make sure it is working correctly.  If it is working correctly, then I would buy another Memory Card (I know, more money for nothing) to see if the new card works.  If you do both and neither work, then you may have a problem with the Memory Card Reader in the phone not working (my Sim card reader stopped working and I had to get a new phone under warranty). 
 
If you think the Memory Card Reader is bad, I would call AT&T to find the nearest store to you (actual store, not authorized retailer) and take it to them to have them try it for themselves, just to make sure you have someone else try it, and make sure they note it on your account.  (To keep from buying another memory card, you may want the AT&T store to try a new card straight out of the package, and tell them if it works, you will buy the new card, and if it doesn't, then there is obviously something wrong with the phone.)
 
Also, taking the battery out while the phone is on DOES NOT format the memory card (stupid LG).  I do this all the time, and if that formatted the memory card, I would always be putting all my stuff back on my card.  All that did was turn the phone off without using the power button.  Just like your computer, if you unplug it from the wall while it is on, it does not format your Hard Disk Drive.  I would try hooking the memory card up to the computer (like stated above with the card NOT in the phone) and actually format it to see if that helps (even though I doubt it will). 
 
I have talked to AT&T and LG about a couple of things, and neither are very helpful when it comes to technical questions about this phone (they both tell me to call the other and "ask them").

After calling AT&T Tech support, Then LG Tech Support, visiting a dozen bulletin boards, I finally got an answer to at least part of this problem.  LG has made this phone so it can only accept Sandisk cards.  If you bought any other brand you are out of luck, and out of money.  LG made this phone so there is no enter button, so when you are on the net, and have to enter a password, if the site doesn't have an enter button on the page, you cannot log in.  They made this phone so that it cannot sync your calendar or contacts unless you can bluetooth it to your computer, and then you can only do this one contact at a time.  Seems to me that the engineers that made this phone don't actually use cell phones, or are extremely forgetful.  Cute phone, TV is cool, internet is great, as long as you don't need an enter button.  Too many steps to get to some apps.  If this was their attempt to compete with the iPhone, they fell WAY short.

AT&T and LG may have told you only SanDisk Memory Cards will work (I doubt it), but that is not true.  ALL of my Micro SD cards are Patriot, and they ALL work.  The phone will not save photos to the memory card if it is bigger than a 2GB card, but other than that, the phone does not know what brand memory card is inserted.  It will play music from a 4GB memory card, but doesn't like 8GB cards.
 
And what sites don't have enter buttons that are needed in order to log in?  It is true the phone can not sync with your PC calendar or contacts.  It does sync with Windows Media Player (music).

Hello everyone, I was wondering if you guys could help me with a little problem.

 

I bought my vu a couple weeks ago and I’ve been taking pictures nonstop. I also bought a 2 GB Sandisk memory card for it because my memory was starting to run low. I took a few really great pictures and I wanted to be able to transfer them to my computer and whatnot but the problem is I cannot seem to transfer the already existing photos from my phone to my memory card. I know how to make sure all of the photos I take now are saved to my memory stick and I have, but I can’t get the ones already on it to transfer to my memory card. Is it even possible?

 

Thanks :-)

Yes, you can transfer the photos from your phone to your Memory Card, and vice-versa.  Depending on how you have your phone set up (Icon View or List View), when you go to your photos, you should either see nine (9) thumbnails of your photos or a list of your photos like when you go to your Phone Book.  At this point is when you transfer the photos.  Select a photo (press once), select "Options", "Move", Move to: "Memory Card".  If you are viewing the full image of the photo (photo on top, 3 thumbnails at the bottom), then you need to press back to get to the Icon View (or List View if that is how your phone is set up).  You can not move the photos when you are viewing a specific photo (nice LG), but can when looking at the list.

I'm really starting to think this phone is more trouble than it's worth. I have a 4GB Lexar micro sd card that the phone was reading perfectly, and I even got my sister to put some music on it for me a few weeks ago. I've only had this phone for about a month. My laptop doesn't recognize hc cards so my sis downloaded music to her phone and transfered it to mine via bluetooth. I got the data cable for the phone, which sadly isn't included with the phone, but the phone stopped recognizing the micro sd. So after reading a few posts, I've come to the conclusion that I need to buy a new sd, and probably sandisk, and perhaps a 2GB? This is ridiculous. Any additonal ideas or is this about right?

Hi,

 

This is with regard to the same problems that you were addressing. I tried everything that is mentioned on this thread. Including changing of ID tags, and transferring all my music onto the "Music" folder on the memory card. But the AT&T music player still does not recognize a single song from the memory card. Although the entire collection is visible on the Audio & ringtones tab, it is too painful to use, since it does not automatically jump from one song to the next, so you end up manually movng to the next song at the end of the previous one. All the songs are in MP3 format as well.

 

Please help!!! Anybody???

are your file names normal?  as a test, name some of your files test1.mp3, test2.mp3, etc.. make sure the id3 tags are correct too.  only put those mp3s in the music folder on your sd card..  just 1 file that is {word filter evasion} will prevent the music player from displaying most of the songs..  it's a pain, but start off slow and you'll start to figure it out..  file names and id3 tags are the culprits...  so, add a few at a time, see if the music player picks them up.. then add a bigger chunk and carefully scan to make sure they all show up..  eventually you'll upload a batch that doesn't all show up and that batch will have at least one problem file...  

 

it's very picky, but the music player does work.  i don't think it has anything to do with the brand/quality of sd card either.  it's just simply the design of the software.

You might be making the same mistake I did, it's an easy mistake because the card is so danged small - you have to push it in all the way, until it clicks and stays in all the way. You won't be able to pull it out again within first pushing it in and hearing the click again.

i also got a 4g memory card and kept getting the card not ready signal after istallation. I found that the card wasnt being in far enough by the battery and put a small piece of plastic that i trimmed from the cards packaging inbetween the card and battery. now my phone recognises that the card has been installed.

So, my first problem was that I didn't push the micro SD card in all the way....D'oh. But, now that i finally got my phone to recognize the fact that the card exists, I'm having the same problem as everyone else: The music player won't recognize the songs I put on it. I can locate the files through the "other" section in "my stuff," though. I thought the solution was the ID3 tags as mentioned earlier, but that won't work for me. The files are in the default "music" folder.

 

Can anyone offer a different solution, or maybe point out something I may have done wrong?

it's not just ID3 tag, it can be file name convention as well.  It's a pain but process of elimination...  Add your songs in groups of 10 until you add a group that makes it bomb.  Then once you fix that group, you'll know what to do to other songs.

 

If your first group of 10 songs doesn't show, for a test, name them 0001.mp3, 0002.mp3, 0003.mp3 etc

 

if they still don't show, convert the ID3 tags.  the fact that you see them when browsing means it not a problem with the phone or card.  it's the pickiness of the mp3 music player on the phone.

Is there any way to copy multiple photos from the phone's memory to the Micro SD Card?

 

I've taken a bunch of photos only to find they were saved on the phone's memory, not the Micro SD Card, and when trying to copy them to the Card so I can use my PC's card reader (no, I don't have the data cable to connect my Vu to my PC) while I can select Multiple Photos, I can only select them with the purpose of Deleting them. There appears to be absolutely no option to Select Multiple to Copy to Memory Card.

 

Well, I'm a stubborn SOB, so I'm going to be sitting here for most of the night, copying photos over one by one, then transferring them from the Card to my PC when (if) the Card is full, then copying more. But if anyone can save my sanity I'd really like to know if it's possible to select Multiple Photos and copy them to the Memory Card.

 

Thanks heaps,

John

going forward, make sure you change the setting for pictures and for videos to save to the sd card.

 

since you don't have the data cable, borrow a friend's laptop that has bluetooth for 5 minutes and grab/move all your photos that way

Thanks for the tip. I did change it now so the Camera automatically saves to the SD Card. I might have to pick up a Data Cable, too, as none of our PCs or Laptops have Bluetooth. Re: transferring the photos I'm done now, I fired up iTunes and started playing some songs as I made the 9 "key" presses necessary to move each photo from the memory to the SD Card, and 80+ photos & ~750 presses later...I was done Smiley Very Happy

 

Considering the Vu's camera is just a 2-megapixel camera, when taking photos at the highest resolution some of them still came up pretty good when viewed on my PC's screen. The best were those I'd taken outdoors, or indoors where there was a good amount of ambient light.

you could also find a cheap usb bluetooth adapter online.. i got one a few years back for about $7 shipped.  more universal than the proprietary data cable, but i'm sure those are cheap on ebay

 

with ample lighting the photos are good for almost any need.  the only problem is the image stabilization...   it blurs easily

How did you change it to the right ID3 tags?
