Re: down loading songs from my music on my computer using...

Using Bluetooth with your PC is not the most reliable way. Use the USB cable provided with the phone. Even with the cable, Disc2phone doesn't seem to always work. I found it to take a long time to work and sometimes it didn't work at all.
Make sure you have the latest version of Disc2phone, download from:

If you used the CD supplied with your phone to install Disc2phone it's probably out of date.

How to download music on a iphone 3g?

there are several ways you can download and put music on your iPhone 3G

1.-Purchase songs in iTunes directly on your iPhone (this will cost you money and require you to create an iTunes account,if you download apps, you already have one).

2.-Insert a CD into the computer you plug your iPhone to, open the CD with iTunes, and rip the contents of the disc into iTunes (iTunes has a tutorial for this if you need further information), sync your phone with your iTunes on the computer and the songs will be added to your song library in your phone.

3.-You can use a P2P (peer to peer) sharing program ex. Frostwire, Winamp, eMule, to download the songs onto your computer. Take note of what folder these downloaded songs are being sent to. In iTunes, select File>add folder to library, a window will open, select the file where the downloaded music is located, and iTunes will add it into the music library in iTunes. Sync your phone with iTunes and the downloaded songs will be added to the music library on your phone

The Sony Ericsson w580i is one of Sony Ericsson's lines of Walkman-branded handsets. These music focused phones are popular globally, but few of them have made it to the United States. The W580i is one of the few that has, carried by AT&T. And it's a good pick for the carrier.
The sound quality through the included stereo earbud headphones is superb and if you turn on the MegaBass boost feature in the Walkman player, the phone outputs full and powerful sound that booms. The W580i also has support for A2DP which allows the phone to play music via Bluetooth to stereo headphones. Like other Walkman phones, the W580i supports music files in the MP3/AAC/AAC+/e-AAC+) formats and you can rip music CDs using the included Disc2Phone software for Windows or using Sony Ericsson DVD Ripper for Mac.

Alternative to disc2phone

I have a feeling the phone won't recognise M4a format, if it does though, you'll probably have to create a playlist and arrange the play order in iTunes. WMP info is recognised by most MP3 devices - it is a small file containing the details of the tracks' play order and such.

Can't transfer music

I bought a W300i also, a barebones dealers unit. I am building it custom to my specs. The Disc2Phone software is available as a free download from Sony at the following link: It has a variety of tools you may find useful. FYI: The Sony support documents and website indicate the phone will only support MicroSD cards up to 512MB. However, users report using up to 2GB cards with no problem. (If you want to store lots of music & photos.) Cheers. BJ
