Question about LG CHOCOLATE VX8500 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

LG Chocolate 3 won't read my Micro SD card full of MP3s!

I have used the SD micro card before to transfer mp3 songs and podcasts from my Macbook to my LG Chocolate 3 phone. But now it doesn't work: I took off old podcasts I was done listening to by deleting them from the SD card when it was in the USB adapter inserted into my Macbook port, and then I added new songs and podcasts to the card. But when I put the card into the phone, suddenly the phone said I had NO songs and NO podcasts. Every category shows up as empty -- under "songs", "genres", "artists", etc., it just says "Add Songs to Play Music", as if there's nothing there at all. ARGH. My computer says that there's tons of stuff on the card, but none of it shows up on the phone now. What do I do????

Ok, I figured it out. Well, ok, maybe I didn't figure it out, but I did solve the problem -- by making sure everything on the SD card was backed up, and then reformatting it. Then I put all my MP3's back into the "my_music" folder on the card, and it all showed up on the phone -- finally!

Can i transfer songs from my pc to my cell? and what is the hole for on the top left?


It is possible another way...Best buy cells micro sd memory cards costing about $12 for a 2 MB. It comes with an apapter to put into your memory card slot into your computer. So you put little memory card into the apapter into the computer card slot. Drap and drop songs on the card and woolah. Put the little card in to the Micro SD slot in your phone....
Go to www.bestbuy.com and search micro sd cards.

I do this for music.(:

kk to add music make sure you syn the phone and the cp do the data and all then put .mp3 on all the media files and see if it works. Then if that doesnt go to computor format the card and then put it in the phone. Otherwise you need new stuff.

You must Have All Files In the my_music directory with NO sub directories. And as said before YOU HAVE 32 Characters.Most of your Mp3s will have a tag on it that will tell you (the phone) all the info you will ever need to know about a song.Some day lyrics.

My LG Chocolate VX8550 wont recognize micro sd card


Here are the steps I took:

  1. Insert the micro sd card with the metal plates facing you (that took me a second). Don't worry about the little push you have to give.
  2. Go to the Settings & Tools option in the Menu.
  3. Select *. Memory
  4. Selct 3. Card Memory
  5. Select Options while the bar is on "1. Memory Usage". The only option available to me was 1. Format and select that.
  6. It will ask for the phone lock code-if you have never set it IT IS THE LAST 4 DIGITS OF YOUR TELEPHONE NUMBER.
  7. The phone will format the card and put the file folders on it.
  8. Use the adaptor USB reader or whatever you have to connect it to the computer. Copy songs to the my_music folder.

for mp3 as ringtones:

  1. You should select the part of the song you like, and can add effects with this:http://www.mptrim.com/
  2. To set it as a ringtone, send it as an attachments to you areacodeandyourphonenumber@vzwpix.com. It must be small to go through, around 30 seconds.
  3. You will get a text message, and select options. Select Save As Ringtone.

Music player and micro sd card


I have found that mine didn't recognize songs if the name of the song was too long. Try going into Windows explorer (with the micro sd card in the computer) and rename at least one of the songs as a test. If that song is recognized by the phone, go back and shorten the names on the rest of the card. Good luck!
