Re: Transfering MP3's from an SD Card

Putting Music On Your PS31. Make a folder called MUSIC (capital letters), and place all of your MUSIC in there. (You are not required to make a MUSIC folder.)

2. Now connect your device(SD card,Memory Stick Duo).

3. Go to "MUSIC" find where it says "Audio CD", USB, PSP, Memory Stick etc. and press "Triangle" > "Import" or "Copy" if you don't see the files press "Triangle" > "Display all"

I loaded songs to an sd cad - my computer will play them from the sd card - but when i put the sd card into my nintendo dsi xl,press the sd icon on ds - the screen says "cannot find any music...

hello, Computers can play any audio formats (ex:- MP3) if you have right codecs installed, but the Nintendo is made to play music in AAC audio format only.
so you need find a program to convert your music.for example the music files are in MP3 format you will need to find a program that converts MP3 to AAC format.

How load music in the sd card to my nintendo dsi

If you want to play music on your dsi you have to convert it to aac files, most music is mp3 files but your dsi wont play mp3 files on your dsi unless to put them on your sd ames sd card, then if you put them in your system folder they open it they will play, but if you want to put them on a sd card they into the side sd slot you have to convert them, the way to do that is to download itunes, unless you allready have it, they play the track or tracks you want on itunes, stop the track and right click the track and click create aac version, wait for it to convert, you will hear a ring when it is done, then right click the converted file and click show in windows explorer, then put your sd card into your pc and drop and drag the songs you have in the windows file, you can put them in a music folder if you like, then when you have all the music you want on the card, put in into the side slot on your dsi then turn it on and open the sd card folder and you will see a music file, then open it a play your music, hope this helps you, cheers Roger M.

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...

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.

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.

Adding music from your ipod to your PS3

You cannot transport files from your iPod to your PS3. You can use a USB flashdrive, SD Card, or Memory stick though.

PS3 auto-detects my flash drive, go to the music section highlight your flash drive and hit Triangle. And then click on Display all. When you find the song you want, hit Triangle again and click on copy.

Playing mp3 songs on the ps3 --- 80gb

Whether you are hooking up your device through a USB cable or removable memory (SD card/Flash drive) the PS3 should recognize and play the titles. Here are a few steps to help you along.

1. Hook up device to your PS3

2. Select PS3 media icon where files files should be located

3. Press triangle button on controller

4. Sub menu will show up on side of screen

5. Select the 'display all' option

6. Files should now be accessable/loadable/playable

Playing files directly from the Mp3 player or loading them on the hard drive are both do-able and both methods should work.
