I have the micro SD card and adapter to a 'regular' size SD card. My laptop has a memory card reader. How do I get my mp3's from my computer to play on the phone? I get an error related to an 'unrecognized format'

Re: Transfer music from computer to phone
When you put the SD card into your laptop, it should show-up as a hard drive (one of your drive letters on a Windows machine).
Copy or drag your music files from your computer's hard drive to the "music" folder (it might be named "audio", I can't recall) on the SD card. This folder should be there if the card was previously in your phone. Once the files are copied there, they should play on the phone.
If you still have problems, try reducing the bit rate on the music files. I'm not sure how high of a bit rate this phone can handle. So, for example, if your music is encoded at 256kbps, try reducing them down to 192kbps. I'm not 100% on this, but it's worth trying.

1. Purchase a micro-SD card with an adapter for a normal-sized SD card.2. Plug in the micro-SD card to the back of the phone. Make sure the power is off when you do this, of you could unintentionally harm your phone.3. Power back on, and transfer the pictures to the micro-SD card.4. Shut the phone back off and remove the card again. Place it into the adapter. If your Gateway laptop has a SD card reader: 5. Put the adapter into there.6. Transfer the pictures to you computer. Done! If your laptop doesn't have a SD card reader: 5. You'll need to purchase a second adapter that adapts the regular-sized SD card to a USB port.6. Following the manufacturer's instructions, put the SD card into the second adapter.7. Transfer the pictures to your computer. Done!
Many laptops have an SD card reader. If you do have one, you will need an SD adapter to plug the card in and then to put it in the laptop's card reader. If you do not have one on your laptop you will need to buy an SD card reader and an SD adapter.
Alternatively, you can try putting the microSD card into your phone or digital camera (if it does support one) and connect your phone/camera to the computer to access the data on the card.
hi what you will need to do is either use a USB cable from your pc to your cell phone, the memory stick (micro sd) will show as a removable device then just copy and past the mp3 files that you want to copy, the other way is to buy a sandisc micro card adapter, this looks just like a normal SD card, but at the top of it there is a slot that you put the micro SD card in then put it in a card reader as normal, then transfer the music over to that disc, when done just pull your micro sd card from the adapter and insert it into your cell phone as normal and away you go...hope this helps
-this phone seems to have a micro sd card slot - you can insert a micro-sd card and transfer the photos to the card, then read the card on the laptop with a reader that supports micro sd. so, you should check into the laptop and see if it has any card readers built in since you may need an additional adapter or device in order to connect the micro sd card to the laptop. some micro sd cards will come with adapters to the larger sizes of mini and standars sd card, which may help. you might also have luck putting the card from the phone into some other connectible device (ie a camera) and move the files in that manner - but depending on your hardware and software this may not be a viable option (inexpensive to try, though, if you already own some compatible device)
most mini sd cards come with a full-sized sd card adapter that the mini slips into. You can then slip that in your computer if you have an sd slot or sd reader. You can also buy very inexpensively, a usb port mini sd reader that you can plug directly into your usb port on your computer. Then after you'v dragged and dropped the files, you can put the mini sd back in your phone.
if you are holding the phone with the camera lens toward you, the micro sd slot is on the right side ...owners manual pgs 11,12
the adapter does not go into the phone
the adapter you got should be the size and shape of a regular sd card...this is for insertion into memory card reader/writers...the micro sd card fits into the top of the adapter....it just makes it easier for you to transfer images to and from your computer or separate digital camera that holds a full size sd card
I'm having the same problem with a Transcend 4GB microSDHC card / microSD adapter. I have also found it probably has something to do with the card reader...either the card reader is an SD card reader trying to read an SDHC card OR the card reader is not able to read high-gigabyte SD cards (over 1 GB in some cases).
Yes, it is called a card reader, it cost about $15-20. They come with slots for most of the memory cards available. Find them at Office Depot,OfficeMax or BestBuy. If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
