Saving songs on sd memory card

I bought a 1GB memory card to put already downloaded music on to use in my phone (lg chocolate)... i've tried 4 different programs, yahoo music jukebox, itunes, windows media player, & real player to save the songs on my card, it's not working... the man @ verizon recommended windows media player, but the only music it brings up is music that was downloaded along time ago. i've tried all the options to find my libary of music, but nothing current comes up. when i try yahoo jukebox (which is what i use to put music on my mp3 player) i keep getting a "Device Tracking Failed" error... when i searched the error it states "A problem has occurred in retrieving the Digital Rights Management machine identification. Contact Microsoft product support."
any suggestions are appriciated!!!

    I was using the card reader, not a usb cord.

    I was able to create my playlist, but when i tried to save it on the "portable device; F drive" is when i would get the error.

    So you are wanting to put music you have downloaded on your computer onto the phone, correct? How are you connecting the phone to the computer. Are you connecting the phone itself with usb, or are you using a card reader and trying to drag and drop songs directly to the memory card?

1. Put a micro SD card into your phone. (Make sure it's blank)
2. Format the card from your phone. To do this go into "Menu//Settings & Tools//Memory//Card Memory" then click on "Options" that should open the format screen. Enter your security code (usually the last four digits of your cell #) and format the card.
3. Exit all menu screens by pressing the "End" button and remove your card.
4. Insert your card back into your PC. It should recognize the card and open a "Removable Disk" window. (if not, manually open this window by clicking on "Start//My Computer//drive E: or F:" , they might vary depending on your computer set-up.
5. You should see a folder named "my_music". That's where you are going to drag your music files into.
6. DO NOT open any media player. Just find the location of your music FILES. Usually if you click on "Start//My Music" your music FILES will be stored there.
7. Simply drag and drop music FILES into the folder that I listed on #5. DO NOT drag an albulm. It won't work. Just the music file.

Did the memory card come with a USB adapter? I have one and easily transfered files that I play on Media Player to the card. With the card it has folders so I had to figure out that I had to move them into the files in order for it to work. Hope that helps.

Posted on Feb 06, 2008

Put the memory card into your phone, then formate it...then put they card into your computer open anything that will sync to the card. Then i took the card out of the computer and put it back in and went to my computer and the drive, and there were folders there for my music and videos and such....i hope this helped somewhat i had the same problem

I can't get songs on my micro SD card for my cell phone

No, Im Sorry But Adaptors Are Incapable Of Holding Memory, And You Shouldn't Take Out The Micro SD Before You Remove The SD Card, You Should Also Try Putting In The Micro SD Card And Going To Tools And Enter Into The Memory Option And Selecting Card, Then Using The Options Button Format It, Then Put It Back Into You Computer And Save All Your Songs To The Folder Named my_music This Should Work, And Just So You Know The Phone Will Not Play All Of The Songs That You Put On It For Some Reason, Its Some Formatting Conflict The Songs Can Be In .wma Format Or .mp3 not .mp4 or any other types.

I think you can either format the sd card using the phone, or simply put four folders on your sd card with your computer. The folders are named


you just put the mp3s in the my_music folder. You will have problems with some files if they are right protected.

My LG Chocolate VX8550 wont recognize micro sd card

Here are the steps I took:

  1. Insert the micro sd card with the metal plates facing you (that took me a second). Don't worry about the little push you have to give.
  2. Go to the Settings & Tools option in the Menu.
  3. Select *. Memory
  4. Selct 3. Card Memory
  5. Select Options while the bar is on "1. Memory Usage". The only option available to me was 1. Format and select that.
  6. It will ask for the phone lock code-if you have never set it IT IS THE LAST 4 DIGITS OF YOUR TELEPHONE NUMBER.
  7. The phone will format the card and put the file folders on it.
  8. Use the adaptor USB reader or whatever you have to connect it to the computer. Copy songs to the my_music folder.

for mp3 as ringtones:

  1. You should select the part of the song you like, and can add effects with this:
  2. To set it as a ringtone, send it as an attachments to you It must be small to go through, around 30 seconds.
  3. You will get a text message, and select options. Select Save As Ringtone.
