Question about Samsung SCH-u740 Cellular Phone

Samsung u740 some music not loading.

When I copy songs over to my memory card, most of them normally load in the MyMusic and play fine. I have come across about 3 or 4 songs of mine that when I copy them over the same way, will not be found when MyMusic is loaded, and cannot play them. When browsing the memory card through the phone, it lists the songs with the correct music icon. Any idea why this is happening?

Also, the songs are the same format and do not have anything awkward in ID3.

Re: Samsung u740 some music not loading.

I was having the same problem with custom ringers too... some files just would not play. They would even play in preview mode, but wouldn't ring when the phone was being called. From what I could tell, it was having problems with certain bitrates of files, or variable bitrate files.

My solution: I found that 192kbps works 100% of the time and sounds great, so I just dumped them into my copy of Nero Wave Editor and saved them as such. No more issue!

It sounds like those songs are not MP3 format. In order for your phone to play the music you have to make sure they are MP3. You could be saving WMA which will not play or show on card from phone.

Memory card. !! please help );

Don't know much about the Samsung phone; Can you put music on the 1 Gb memory card from another source (like a computer) and have it recognized by the phone?
Does the phone require music in a particular format? For example, if the phone recognizes .mp3 music files, but all your music is in Ogg Vorbis (.ogg) files, you will not be able to play them on the phone.

1) Find the Samsung phone manual (online?) and see if it requires music files to be in one format, or another.

2) Try loading music, in the proper format, from different sources onto your memory card.

Best of luck!

SCH-u740 how do i down load musib from my PC to

If the phone doesn't come with a usb cord, then the easiest way that I've found is loading all the music to a micro SD card and just inserting it back into my phone. If your phone doesn't have a micro sd slot either, and you get internet on your phone, you have to find a mobile friendly download site, which are all over the place. Hope some of this helps.

Downloading to a zte c79

i JUST bought this phone, and got very frustrated trying to download music into the music player. Drag and drop your music files from your pc into your "my music" folder. They DO NOT show up right away, this is why i got pissed. I figured I was doing something wrong. I had the card in my phone, and my phone plugged into the usb port. They finally showed up on my phone after I took the card out and put it back in. As far as saving them for ringtones, I am pretty pissed that I can't do it. I am thinking Metro wants us to pay for them. That is such b&*%$#*!
