Tried changing them from mp3 to wma and still cant find them-when i check the card in an adaptor the files show up but wont play in my phone. ive only had the phone for a week so what am i missing here?
There are several things you need to look at when trying to get mp3 files to playback on you phone, but the most common are file name length and bit rate. File name length should be 30 or under and bit rate should 192 or under.

do you have the music files on the SD card? is the SD card compatible (you need a usb data cable for connection between the cell & pc) is the files MP3, AAC or WMA ? you can play these types of codecs (by pressing my music)
Your Samsung Hue can only play MP3 encoded files (extension mp3). If you have taken music that has been ripped using the windows media player, the default rip settings put the tracks into windows media audio format (wma) which your phone cannot read. You'll need to find a free wma to mp3 converter and convert your files to load onto your phone. You can also set Windows Media Player to default to MP3 when ripping under the Tools|Options menu item. Look under the RIP tab and change the default format to MP3. If you are already using MP3, it is possible that you are using to high of a Kbs rate on your MP3's in which case you'll need to be sure you rip tracks in a lower Kbs rate (also under the RIP tab in Windows Media Player). Here is a link to a free WMA to MP3 converter... http://download.cnet.com/1770-20_4-0.html?query=wma+to+mp3+converter&tag=srch%3Ba&searchtype=downloads&filterName=platform%3DWindows&filter=platform%3DWindows
Double check the file format you have your music saved as. On some lg phones the media player will only read mp3 files. If they are stored as wma files they might not be readable by the phone. Also when you look at the memory card on your computer if the files are not stored under my music or music the phone wont be able to read them. Good Luck!
this is due to the format of the music files some mobiles have mp3 format as default but they can also play wma and wav formats so convert the music files into the format your mobile supports by default this will show up all the music files in the music category if this does not works tell me the model no of your mobile
you have to make sure that the music is in the right format and you have to open the music in the music player menu. i have my songs in wma format and they work fine. also if your phone is not recognizing the sd card then perhaps its an sd card that is not supported by the lg shine. read your manual there is a specific type of card you can and cant use on that phone. the card i have is a sandisk 4gb microSDHC
1. Please place the memory card into the device and select the option to format it. This way the phone will set up the needed file system. Then you will likely have 3 folders. One will be MUSIC I believe. The others probably SYSTEM, etc. Make sure that you format the SD card with the phone first though as you might be placing music on the card but the phone isn't looking in the proper location for it. Also, be sure that the file is actually in MP3 format. I believe this is the program I used to use when dealing with WMA to MP3:
The easiest way to get music on phone is to sync it with windows media player, you will need music kit from service provider, otherwise tmusic needs to be mp3, or wma format, and 128k compression it also needs to be put on card in correct folder
