Cant put music on my phone ugh


Try the following:

1. Attach your USB cable to the Phone and Computer.
2. Navigate your computer, to find the phone. It generally appears as a USB stick or Ext HD would.
3. Within your Phone there will be several folders. One will say music.
4. You can copy music (MP3 format) to and from your phone this way.

I hope this helps. Regards,

I cant get my LG VX9200 to accept my WMP files


How are you loading them?

I have successfully used the Micro-SD card by removing it from the phone (Power the phone off first, please!), and inserting the micro-SD card into my PC card reader using an SD-Card adapater, which makes it appear as a Drive to my (WIndows) PC.

I then just copy music files into the "My Music" folder, and they show up when I put the card back into my phone.

I have also been successful using a USB cable, and then settting the phone to "Main Menu | Settings & Tools | Tools | USB Mass Storage" Then the phone looks like a disk on my computer, and again, I copy the files into the "My Music" folder on the micro-SD card while it's in the phone. Don't know if you can copy to internal phone memory in this method; I've never needed to try it.

A couple of things: I'm using ".m4a" files out of iTunes; I have also used ".mp3" files I've edited as ringtones, but I haven't tried ".wmp" files, so I don't know if it's a file format issue.

So are you successfully copying files to your phone and just not able to play them, or are you not able to even get them copied onto the phone?

How do you play itunes on the hero htc?


there is not itunes for the hero, itunes is an apple product. If you are wanting to play songs you downloaded from itunes on the hero, all you have to do is drag the songs onto the SD memory card under a folder called music.

Playing music on htc hero from itunes library of macbook


One issue should go first ahead of your question --- is the music you want to transfer from iTunes DRM-protected?

1. If they are non-DRM .mp3 or .m4a, you can either use one-stand free iTunes transfer like DoubleTwist or iTunes Agent which dose good job of transferring iTunes music to HTC Hero; or you can manually frag and drop by following those steps:

Step 1. Plug in your phone via-usb to Windows Computer

Step 2. From the "HTC HERO Phone" pull down drop-menu from the top and select with your finger the menu that says "USB Connected Select to copy files to/from your computer.

Step 3. Select Mount ("on the phone")

Step 4. The Default Windows Removable Disk shows up (on the computer), select open folder to view files. Here you will see the phones & applications file structure.

Step 5. Select the file that says DCIM then 100MEDIA this is location for your music, pictures, and videos.

Step 6. Open up My Computer or Windows Explorer in a seprate window on the computer and copy and paste your files into the 100MEDIA location.

Step 7. Final step, from the phone pull down the drop down menu from the top and select Turn off USB Storage - Turn off - you will see SD Sync.


2. If they are DRM-protectd .m4p music .m4v video files or other protected .wma wmv files, a 3rd party DRM Removal Software is a must-have tool to strip DRM license and convert format to HTC supported .mp3 audio and .3gp video.

Transferring is as easy as what was stated above.

your phone only supports mp3s and wma files. Itunes is not supported. you can convert the files to a comaptible format.
You can convvert them from AAC to mp3 with the itunes software
iT
unes AAC files to MP3 files that are compatible with Windows Media Player 11.
Note: The iTunes desktop application can only convert AAC files ripped from a music CD. It can’t convert music files purchased from the iTunes store.
  1. Open the iTunes desktop application on your computer.
  2. Select Edit > Preferences, then click the 'Advanced tab' and click Importing.
  3. Open the 'Import Using' pop-up menu, then select the MP3 Encoder option. Click OK to save your settings.
  4. Select one or more songs in your iTunes music library, then choose Advanced > Convert Selection to MP3.
  5. The converted MP3 file copies appear in your computer’s music library alongside the original AAC files.

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.
