Cannot Sync music files

Isn't the MP3 player supposed to work just like a regular one? I plug my phone into the USB and nothing happens. I tried to sync and it does not read the phone. Other people say I need a CD-ROM still others are saying Bluetooth and still others are saying memory card etc..can you please help me? Thank you.

Re: Cannot Sync music files

You've got several options, you can save mp3s to the phone memory itself if you use the motorola phone tools cd and a usb or bluetooth connection to the phone.  

if you've got a memory card, you can also save data to the card.

if you've got a memory card, and you plug the phone in via usb, then the phone should show up as a usb disk, you can also use a usb card reader to put data on the card, and then drop the card into the phone.

to be clear, if you have the cd with motorola phone tools, you can save files to the phone, or the card... if you don't have the MPT, then you need a memory card, and either use usb, or a usb card reader to put music on it.

Re: Cannot Sync music files

Have you set your memory card as the default connection? If not then go to your phones settings menu and select the connectivity option. Then select USB settings. Next select memory card as your default connection. Ok now your default connection is set so plug the USB adaptor into your computer then into the phone. If the computer does not automatically detect the phone  open the computers control panel and select add hardware. Follow the promps in the wizard. It should come up as USB mass storage device. Once your device is recognized there are a couple of different ways to get music stored on your memory card. First is to have whatever media player is on your computer to detect your device. Then put the songs you want to tranfer into the sync list. Once you have done that click start sync and it will copy them to your phone. If the first option is not an option then onto the next. Second is to click on my computer and select the drive letter that represents your phone(mass storage device). Once that is open select the file where your music is stored and highlite the files to transfer. Once you have the files highlited drag and drop them into the window for your phone. The files should start to transfer at that point. Wait for the tranfer to complete then disconnect the USB from your phone. Open the digital audio player on your phone. It should say "updating music directory" then main menu once it is finished updating. Scroll down and select songs you should now see a list of songs. Select what you want to hear and enjoy. The first is the easiest and best way to go. The second is not hard but is more bothersome. Hope this helps.

How to load music to my samsung galaxy?

I have a Motorola Droid, but the same approach is likely to work, since they're both Android 2.0+.

Here's what I do:

1) I rip/store my music using Windows Media Player on my PC.

2) When I'm ready to transfer, I make sure Windows Media Player is open and then I connect my Droid to my PC using the provided USB cable, which happens to be the same cable that connects the phone to the charger. Plugging the phone in like this makes the phone storage visible much like a flash drive.

3a) At this point, Windows Media Player will recognize the storage and you will be able to sync your music library to it.

3b) Alternatively, the phone storage will be accessible via a drive letter. You can put your music files under the Music folder at the top of the "drive." (I prefer 3a, because it organizes the music better.)

I'm not familiar with Macs, so I can only speculate that the same idea should apply. The heart of it is that music goes under the Music directory at the top of the add-on SD memory card. The phone's music player is supposed to find and use all music files anywhere underneath that directory.

Having problems playing music frommy sandisk 4gb micro memory card on my motorola ve240 cell phone

I have a similar problem, the issue for me was windows media player was creating a folder called music on my sd card and uploading the music there during sync function. However, the phone only looks in the \my_music folder on the SD card. Sync your phone, then rename the newly created music folder to my_music and the player will work. Still looking for a permanent solution to this problem.

How to make the mp3 player work

Plug mp3 player in to usb. Does your computer recognize mp3 player? If yes, than go to "start menu" than "my/computer", than you will see drive folder with mp3 player. Leave this window up.

Now find your music folder with songs. Click song file, drag file to mp3 player drive folder and drop it in there. It will be added on your mp3 player.

Another way mabey easier, is to open media player, click sync device, Now media player can read mp3 player. In media player, find your songs in library or the folder that has them. click on "songs" or song file and drag it to the right side of media player and add it to the list of songs that will be added to mp3 player. Once all the songs are in the list on the right side, you can click the button at the bottom and they will be added to mp3 player.

Cannot Sync music files

okay... :)

1. the PC needs a CD-ROM with the cell phone's drivers to help interface the sync process.

2. you could transfer the files via bluetooth if both cell phone and computer have bluetooth components built in them.

3. if the PC tells you the memory card is write protected, look for a tiny little lock/unlock switch in the edge of the card to undo the "protect".

Hope this helps...
