Question about LG CHOCOLATE VX8500 Cellular Phone

Music for my LG Chocolate

I have a chip for my cell phone. I formated the chip using the phone. I put music on it using Windows Media player, then I put the chip in the phone. The phone doesn't see what's on the chip! It seems to know the chip is there, because I can check the memory available on it, but the music menu doesn't show what's on the chip. Help!

    Okay, here's what worked for me. (Don't you love spending hours in trial and error mode?) The music was getting from Media Player onto the chip in the adapter, but I couldn't get it to land in the my_music file on the chip. So I used Explorer (yeah, the file manager) to look at the chip. It had the files the phone formatted PLUS a file called "music," with artist folders in it. What worked was taking all the songs out of the those artists folders inside the new music folder and, via drag-n-drop, I put them in the my_music folder. Lost the album cover graphic, but the title, etc. is still there in the phone. Some of these files are mp3 format, some wma.



    If you know how to do this better, please advise!

    Guess I was trying to avoid giving Verizon another 20 bucks for a cable! - Oh well. It's certainly worth the money to save the hassel! Thanks.

Check how much memory is on the chip, if the memory chip is showing used memory then somethings wrong cuz it aint showing the songs. also when you were on media player did you drag the songs you wanted into the right coluumn and then sync. if you did then call for help or go to place of purchase

Windows media player should work as long as your computer can reconize the device(Phone) just use the sync function on the wmp and locate your phone on the list of devices. Also make sure you have a media card in your phone.

LG Chocolate micro SD card


You need to format inside the phone. Go to Settings-Memory-Card Memory-Options-Format card. Do that, put it back in your computer, and put music (MP3's) into the My_Music folder.

Saving songs on sd 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.

Music to Phone


I've never used WMP to directly sync to my Chocolate. I have success with the VW Vcast software which uses WMP through it. Maybe check Windows's website for troubleshooting on recognizing devices.
