How to download songs from MAc onto DSi?Do I need the SD card? If so, how does the SD card interface with the computer? I can probably figure out how to convert iTune songs to whatever format is supported by the card- but how to actually get the songs onto the card.

You must have a card reader for your computer in order to add songs to an SD card. You will need an SD card in order to get Music onto your DSi. You can often purchase a USB card reader specifically for an SD card for cheap. Check your local electronics store. All you will need to do then is copy the .MP3 files over to the SD card. It works exactly like a Floppy Disc or a Flash Drive. The DSi should already have the software it needs to run .MP3 files.

How do you download music on a dsi


Hello sherribaxley

As far as I know, there is no direct way to download music onto your DSi. In order to listen to songs on your DSi, you will first need to copy the songs you want to listen to onto a compatible SD or SDHC card. Not all songs are compatible with the DSi. Some songs may be copy protected and will not work. The DSi is compatible with AAC audio files with a filename extension of .m4a, .mp4, or .3gp.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED

- A compatible SD or SDHC Card. The DSi is compatible with SD cards up to 2 GB and SDHC cards up to 32 GB.
- Compatible music files stored on a PC or MAC.
- An SD Card slot in the PC or MAC, or an external reader/writer

WHAT TO DO

1. Insert the card into the slot.
2. Open Windows Explorer (for PC) or Finder (for Mac) and select the drive being used by the card to open it.
3. Open another instance of Windows Explorer or Finder and navigate to where the music is stored.
4. Highlight the desired file(s) and/or folders, copy them, and then paste them into the first instance of Windows Explorer or Finder to create copies on the card.

If you need to convert the format of your music files, there are many freeware applications available to download on the web. I personally would suggest using iTunes, as it has a built in AAC converter.

Hope this helps. Please don't hesitate to contact me should you require any further assistance.

Need help puting music on ACC file


To convert music to AAC files you have to download itunes, if you dont allready have it, when you have done that play the songs you want to convert one by one in itunes, has you play them right click on the song, then right click create AAC version, when the track as been converted you will hear a bell sound, then right click again and click show in windows explorer, the songs you convert will go into a windows folder, the best way to do it is when the song goes into the folder drop and drag them onto your sd card, then as the songs go into the folder do the same, you can put them in a music file on your sd card to make it easy to open when in your dsi, when you have all the songs on your sd card, pop it into your dsi, then open the music folder and play your songs, hope this helps you cheers Roger M.

I have dsi and a ttdsi card and ther sd card.


Did it work before? Is this a new card? If it's new, and you've never used it before, you probably have to download the 'software' to make it work.

I have the R4i card, and that is the way it works. Go to whatever the manufacturers website is (usually listed on the packaging, or the card itself) and download the software to make the card work. They can't pre-install the software, otherwise it would be illegal to the sell the cards.

It's also possible that your DSi has version 1.4 firmware. If this is the case, there are only a few cards that are compatible with this firmware, and the TTDSi you have may not be. If your TTDSi card doesn't specifically indicate that it supports Firmware 1.4, and that is what you have, most likely you will never get it to work, even if you install the menu software onto the SD card.

Good luck...

How do i put music of my pc onto sd card for dsi


You have to download itunes if you have not allready go it, you have to put the music you want on your dsi into a playlist on itunes, if you play it on itunes just stop the tracks and right click and pick create aac version, they have to be aac files to play on your dsi, once you have converted the music you want, right click on the tracks you want and pick show in windows explorer, then when you have them in that file, drop and drag the tracks to your sdcard,after you put the card into the pc, you can not put them on your games card because you have to put the card in the side of your dsi to be able to play them, once you have done that, turn on your dsi and open the file for the music and play the songs, if you try and put mp3 files onto the card the dsi will not play them, only if you put them on you games card, and into a system files, then the dsi will play them.

I dont know how to put music in the sd card


To add music to your DSi, first you need a spare sd card, and a pc or laptop that can sync with the card. Remember that the DSi only plays AAC type songs, so convert the songs you want to copy-paste on the card. This can be done easily on Itunes on which I use by right-clicking on the song and it will show you there ' convernt to AAC'. After saving the songs , take out the card from the pc or laptop and you can now insert the card in your DSi and play music and enjoy.

How to download songs from computer?


The new Nintendo DSi console can now play music, however it can only play AAC file type music, so if you have MP3 type, converting it is as easy as pie in iTunes. Also, once you have converted the songs, you need an SD card to store the songs in, and once done, you can put it in the DSi SD card slot and then play your music.
Hope this helps.
