What type of file is it?

You may not have a player that accepts that file extension.

Most players will play mp3, wma, wav, etc. If you don't have that file extension listed under your player it won't recognize what program can run it. Go to your player and look under the options and settings and find where the accepted file extension list is located. From there check mark the box that is required for your file type and then try to play it.

If it still doesn't play make sure the file type is something the player can read. Make sure it's not a compressed file such as a .zip or .rar. In that case you will have to extract the music file from the archive with an extracting program. You can download WINRAR to do this which is free just google it and download. After that is installed right click on the file and click EXTRACT HERE.

However if the file is a genuine music file that is not in an archive you may be missing the proper codec to play the file. Then in that case you will need to download the proper codec. I would suggest download XP Codec Pack from www.freecodecs.com

How do you download music into the pantech c740 music player?


Before answering this, keep the following in mind about uploading files to your phone:
MP3 would be my personal choice for the phone you have. Since you are using Windows Media Player (WMP) on your PC, I assume that any music you have ripped with it would be in WMA format, or maybe WAV. WAV is compatible with your phone, but I haven't tried WMA.
Get into the folder the files for the player are stored in (usually My Music), and look at the format by right clicking and selecting properties. If the file format is not compatible with your phone, you can try changing the file extension by opening any folder, selecting tools>folder options>view, and then unclick "hide known file extensions." Then go back to the file and rename it, but only change the file extension. Example: if the file is named "music.wma", the you would change it to "music.mp3." This usually works with common audio files.
To answer your main question, the easiest way is to bypass all the media player ****, and go straight to the file folder where you music is stored in your "My Music" folder.
The following will work with a mini SD card too.
First connect your phone to your computer via a USB cable. A folder options box should come up. Choose to open the folder and explore files. It may not say exactly that, but you'll sort it out I'm sure. Find the "audio" folder inside the phone, and open it.
Then in your computer's music files, find the folder containing the music you want to put on your phone (usually "My Music"), right click the music file you want and select "copy". Go back to the folder for your phone or card, and copy the file into it. That's it.
There are many ways to copy the files with this method, but this one is the easiest to explain. You can copy entire folders to your phone, if you have enough memory. Also, ripped CD folders often contain album art, so I recommend selecting the files you want to copy, rather than the whole folder. Holding Ctrl while highlighting the files you want to copy will enable you to select multiple files and copy them all at once.

Moving the iTunes Music Files to a Different Hard Disk/Folder If you are low on...


Moving the iTunes Music Files to a Different Hard Disk/Folder

If you are low on disk space in your iTunes folder then you can move these music files to another hard drive and keep your music library in tact without the need to create your music library again.

If you want to transfer your iTunes to an external USB hard drive, make sure that it is powered up and connected to your computer before opening iTunes.
Opened iTunes, click Edit and then Preferences. Click the Advanced tab.
Make sure the Keep iTunes Media folder organized checkbox is checked, and click Change.

Then select the location where you would like to move your files to. Click Select the Hard Drive and Folder or OK once you’re done.

The files will not move into their new positions by themselves –To do this – click File, Library and Organize Library. Check Consolidate Files.

When this process has been completed, go to the new location of your iTunes media and check the music files to see if they have migrated across correctly. Also play one or more tunes to test the music files.

The redundant iTunes music files can now be deleted from the original iTune location (C:\Documents and Settings\…..…\My Documents\My Music\iTunes). Delete everything from iTunes there except files titled iTunes Library.itl and iTunes Music Library.xml. These are still needed.

Samsung Tocco Lite - Unable to create default folder


Instead of using 'PC studio' option while connecting, use 'media player' option for transferring the files. Check this option. If this does not work, try creating the default directory yourself manually using the phone and then try transferring the files.

10 to 20 percent music files-(message)"unable to copy file or directory"


go to your folder with the files you want to share, open the folder select all of the music files copy them. Open up your brothers flash drive then paste them onto it.

If you have made a shortcut to these files on your desktop then copying them it maybe trying to copy the shortcuts and it won't work.

Another thing to check is that the music files are in the right format for the flash drive.

Weird files showing up in the music folder / music not uploading


I am having the same problem. I have tried everything short of a BIG HAMMER. It seems like there should be a way to reformat the thing back to the original out of the box state. I've removed the battery, tried locked file delete utilities, dos commands, you name it, and no change. Next step will be to call Sandisk I guess. What a pain in the keister! Any help appreciated here too!
