Got a new SD Card + Card Reader but when I download my music on it...
When I download my music onto the card it says the songs are there but the ilo MP3 player only has 13 songs out of the 145 songs I put on the card--help--I really want to listen to my music. Any advice?
Re: Got a new SD Card + Card Reader but when I download...
You cannot just move WMA songs onto the card and play in the MP3 player. MP3 format may work this way, but for sure the player only seems to be able to recongize WMA files when syncd through Windows Media with the USB cord attached. Be sure the DESELECT 'copy folder hierecy' under the sync options/properties of the MP3 player drive or SD card drive.
When using XP Pro and Windows Media Player you can transfer WMA but you have to go into the PROPERTIES of the drive (mine was mp-556/G: drive) and DESELECT the option to transfer folder hierecy. The MP3 player is not able to reconginize the folder structure it usually creates.
This player only seems to be able to transfer MP3 format with Vista, using windows media player sync. I can syne MP3s formats, but not WMAs at all. Unless someone found otherwise

Buy an SD card reader. Insert the SD card into the reader and plug the reader into a USB port on your computer. Plug the iPod into another USB port on your computer. Use iTunes or Windows Explorer to transfer the songs you want from the iPod to the SD card. When done, disconnect/eject the card reader from the computer, take the SD card out of the reader and take it to your car.
That "5 in 1 card reader" is exactly what it says it is: a UNIVERSAL CARD READER. All you have to do is to insert the card into the slot and the machine will detect it automatically and will read it. The microSD cards should be inserted first into a microSD card adapter and after that the both should be inserted into the slot. As for downloading music right on the microSD card do like this: # insert the microSD card into its adapter [together should look like a regular SD card] # insert the adapter into the slot # the machine will detect the SD card [just wait until it is detected] # choose your song [mp3, wma etc.] # right-click on the song and where it asks whre to be downloaded you will choose MY COMPUTER > double-click > the letter corresponding to your SD card. You're done! Do the same with all songs.
GOOD LUCK! ... and don't forget to RATE, please...
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.
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.
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.
You could use either micro sd card to add music to your lg vantage or usb cable. Add music to the micro sd card using the card reader(present in laptops or can be bought seprately) or use usb cable to connect your phone, open it, you would see a folder named music or songs, Now drag or copy your favourite songs into your phone.
Note if a folder named music doesn't exist then don't worry just copy the music and paste it.
you may want to try downloading only those that didn't download the first time. Sometimes when you try to download a large file (all the songs) it causes the "error message" you talk about. You may want to delete files already downloaded, or save the files downloaded to a different file folder, and try the download again.
What, you actually hotwired a flash card into the Ilo? Impressive. Or are you trying to get the Ilo to play music from an SD card, when you have both plugged into the computer?
If you're talking about the first, then I'd say you did a good job at NOT destroying your Ilo. If its the second, then unplug your Ilo, put your headphones into the headphones jack in the computer, and play the music from your computer.
