Many laptops have an SD card reader. If you do have one, you will need an SD adapter to plug the card in and then to put it in the laptop's card reader. If you do not have one on your laptop you will need to buy an SD card reader and an SD adapter.
Alternatively, you can try putting the microSD card into your phone or digital camera (if it does support one) and connect your phone/camera to the computer to access the data on the card.
You have to put the music into a folder that already existed on the sd card. If you put the music into any other folder other than what was there already, then you won't see it once it's inserted back into the phone.
1 Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives. #3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive. 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'. 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place. 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

Your computers SD card reader is more than likely too old. My computer is only a year old and was told it wouldn't work. I called PNY and they told me that I needed to buy either a 1GB or 2GB card or an SDHC external adapter. Of course it doesn't tell you this on the package, good luck!
What size is the SD card in GBs? If it is larger than 2GB (4 or 8) do you have a SDHC card reader? Also try formating the card first in the phone and then using it. Using it straight out of the package, while able to be written, my have difficultly with other devices reading the data.
