Question about LG Shine KE970 Cellular Phone
Have the LG KE970 and tried to download some music on to it, but without success. I have been using Windows Media player to Sync the music to the phone... which seems succesful on the screen, however on the phone I cannot seem to find the files (on either Default Sounds or the External Memory). When I connect the phone via USB to the computer I can play the songs on the phone that I have downloaded.!!! Why is this? Am I not doing something simple!!?? Help.
The MP3 files MUST be in specific folders. (A crazy bit of design work). The easy way is to format the card in the phone (settings-memory-external-format). WARNING: all files get deleted, make sure you have copies. This adds the correct folders. Now you can copy files to the Sounds\MP3 folder. Either via usb cable or direct onto the Mini-SD from the computer. After this process the MP3s will appear in the list and play. I am disappointed though - it only gives a flat list of songs, no split by album.
I hope this helps, it took me 3 hours of pratting about to discover the trick. ... Roger.

How to transfer music, ringtones, wallpaper, pictures, etc to ShineThis is relatively straightforward. The Shine just works as a removable USB drive.
1. Switch on the Shine ,and make sure it's in USB removable disk mode - it usually is, by default (Menu, Settings, Connectivity, USB connection, select Mass storage i.e. make sure that's ticked).
(Note: don't connect it to computer then turn on the Shine, it doesn't seem to like it. Make sure it's switched on before you connect it to the computer.)
2. Connect it to your computer with the supplied USB cable. (Unlike with the Chocolate, you can then close the slider and this will still work. But best to leave the slider open as you connect it, just in case.)
3. Open your computer's file manager e.g. My Computer or Windows Explorer if you have a Windows computer.
4. The Shine will show up as an extra removable disk, in the case of my computer it's drive G, see the pic below which shows its subfolders (Documents, images, Others etc):
5. In fact, two separate removable drives will show up:
Sounds folder - the Shine manual is misleading (well OK, never mind tact, it's just plain wrong). It says you have to put MP3s in the Sounds folder only (there are wrong references to a My Media folder too, not to mention an "MP3" folder). That's the case with the Chocolate - you can't play anything that's in a subfolder - but not with the Shine. I started investigating as I noticed that despite the manual there was a menu command to create a new folder within Sounds. From trial and error I've found that:
Documents folder - for Word, text, Excel, Powerpoint and PDF documents - they'll display on the Shine if you put them in that folder. Read-only, i.e. you can only view them, you won't be able to edit them. But you can move around the document quite well and zoom in and out. Note you can only open small documents - you can try transferring big documents to the Shine if you like, but if you try to view them it may not do it, or may crash, or both.
images folder - a fun touch - if you have Flash .SWF files, you can put them in images and play them on the Shine. There are some on there already that you can play with; I do!
8. Disconnecting the phone - the Shine has big warnings on its screen about making sure you safely remove hardware. So best to do that. See "Disconnecting" on my Chocolate connectivity post on how (for Windows PCs anyway).

Why do you even use windows media player to sync it . just rip your cd in windows media player . go to my documents/my music folder and you will find the tracks you ripped there . Connect your phone o n the pc via the usb cable for your phone . go to my computer and you should find the icon there that shows your phone like a disc or flash drive . open the drive and find the folder like music , melodies or whatever is called a folder on your phone created for putting music files in it . then just copy/paste your ripped tracks from my documents to the folder on your phone and that's it.

Solution 3 problem is that the files are unable to be recognized by the phones software generally u should put .mp3 files on the fone...
... if you download a converter from www.download.com
once there search music converter and download ... convert ur music ... whack it on the fone WITHOUT USING WMP and just use explorer.
