Re: phone wont read card

Try checking to make sure you have the music in the right directory on the card AND that it's in the correct format. Your phone only reads mp3 and wma. If you have music in a AAC or OOG or some other format, it wont show up. If most of your music is in iTunes, it might be in the AAC format. You can check this by right clicking on the Column name (Name, Artist...etc) and selecting Kind. Look at the kind column to see what format it's in.

If you see one of the songs, I'm guessing this is the problem. Either convert them to the right format or just load songs that are already in the right format. Even if it's in an MP3 format, it might not be the right bitrate or quality setting for the phone to recognize.

Accessing my music on my external sd on the lg prada

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!

I am not getting the music for the sd card to play on the mp3

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

Phone not recognizing mp3 files on memory card

I had the same problem on a Verizon LG-NV or is it envy? Anyway, it was exactly as you said, here's what to do. The Mem. Card Needs To Be Formatted BY THE PHONE, then it will be set up in such a manner to read your MP3's. On your phone: GO TO Settings 6 3 6 and your done. Now you can take the MEM. card out of the Phone and put it in you computer.(to load mp3's) When you do, open up the card and you'll see a music folder, put MP3's there!! Then put MEM card back into phone and ENJOY!!!

LG KC550 PC Suite Problem

I speant Hours swearing at my phone because it would not read my music files, Tried the card on many different phones which would take Micro SD and all other phones read the music Just not the LG KC550.

I found that getting a Micro SD dongle reader, Insterting your 2GB Micro sd card in that and then putting your music files into the "sounds" folder works.


1. Insert Micro SD card into Card reader.
2. Insert card Reader to Computer Via USB.
3. Go to my computer and Open the USB Card reader.
4. Select the Music files from your pc Via Copy files
5. Go to open Tab (Where you can see your Micro Sd card) Open the sounds folder and Paste.

If you are finding it hard to get the 5 folders of images, Documents, Sounds, others and Videos on your Micro SD card. Format the card by going My computer, Right click the Card reader (with you Micro sd card inserted) and click format. Takes a few seconds. Insert the card into the phone, the phone will auto put the folders on the card. Then go to step 1 (above) and start again.

Hope this Helps guys.

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.

My cell phone is not reading the memory card

After reading through the archives of related problems, I decided to try some of the suggestions. Here is what I did for my LG Shine...I checked the sd card on the computer to make sure all the data i transferred was on the card and it was. After that, I use the music player on the cell phone to load the music into my library and was able to listen to the music stored on the sd card.The music which was downloaded to the sd card will only play through the music player on the cell phone and for the ringtones I went to the website and made my ringtones. This is the fool proof way of making your favorite songs your ringtone. Follow the instructions giving and in under 3 mins you can make your ringtone. The ringtones have to be under 300kb and in the mp3 format. Its really simple and easy to use and downloaded them to my computer. Hint of advice: email it to yourself that way you can forward it to your friends and family. Might I remind you that its FREE!!!!

Pny micro sd memory card

Most PCs are like that. I don't know what it is but the computer won't do it for mine neither. To put music and such on you sd card for your phone you must format the card while it's in your phone. Goto setting, Memory, Card memory, then click on opions. From there it will say "Format Card". Do it and the lock code is the last four digits or your phone number. After that's done to load music and such you put the sd chip onto you computer and transfer music to the folder on the sd card called "My_music", pix to "My_pix", and so on....
