Put mp3 music on an at&t tilt

I got my daughter a tilt phone and we can't figure out how to get her mp3 music on the mini disk card. AT&T told us the only way you can get mp3 files on the mini disk is to purchase the songs from them. That is ludicrus I wouldn't have bought that phone if I had known that. I have blackberry and my son has a sony ericson and we can put mp3 files on our mini disk no problem. there has got to be away for her to do this. If I was to get a mini disk reader that connects to my PC via USB and use that to copy the mp3 files that way. Will the phone recognize them then?

So on your Mini SD you need to make a folder named MUSIC. Then you just put ur music into it. After that place the card back into the phone. Next on the phone go into the start menu and into the Tools menu. On there press file explorer. From here you can view all files on the phone. From there go onto storage card and in there select music. That will show all the music files. To import the music into the WMP library go into Windows Media Player from your programs list. Once in WMP press men and then press update library. This process could take any where from 30 mins. to an hour. once that is done you got it working

1) this phone comes with a USB cable, so you can connect it to you computer. But your need Microsoft ActiveSync 4.5 to be installed on your computer before you can connect. You can download it from here:
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/en-us/downloads/eulas/eula_activesync45_1033.mspx?ProductID=76

after download install it. after it is installed,, connect your phone with the USB cable provided with the phone. MS ActvieSync will deduct your phone and opens a window immediately to confugure...

check this link on how to setup your phone with Active Sync
http://www.zolved.com/synapse/view_content/31239/Configuring_ATT_8525_with_ActiveSync

Skip the steps and dont select anything in steps 3, 4, 5 and 6... finish the wizard, your will see the Active Sync Windows as shown in Step 8. click on Explore...
you will see a window with the folders in your mobile device, click on "My Windows Mobile-Based Device" and then click on "Storage Card", create a folder with any name here and copy all your music to this folder. Copying music to Storage Card is preferred, so it wont eat up your device memory. Now disconnect your device from USB cable open windows media player in your phone and search for all music files...

So from next time whenever you want to copy music to your phone, connect to USB cable and copy it to ur storage card. thats all


2) you can also use the USB card reader, if you have.. that will save your head-ache with installing and dealing with MS Activesync. This solution also works.. and your will be able to Play your music..

Dont listen to AT&T guys.. they want you to pull money as much from your pocket.

feel free to post if you still face problem with ur phone

I put music on my tilt in the same way I put music on my mp3 player. Personally, all of my music is on windows media player on my laptop. It was only a matter of using active sync to connect my tilt to the computer. From there, I opened up windows media player which had detected my tilt like any other device. From there, it was a simple matter of syncing music over as if it were an mp3 player. This may not be so simple for other people, depending on how you store your music. I'm assuming I had no compatibility problems seeing as both my computer and the tilt use windows media player to access the music.

Hi,
The LG Cyon can only support music within the MUSIC folder on the Mini SD card, put all the MP3's in the Music folder.

Also, it only supports wmv's and MP3's if my memory serves correctly.

My phone won't display contacts or calendar, and shows no service. I can't dial out or receive calls. Internet works, music player works.


It seems that the SIM card is damaged or not inserted properly. You need to contact your mobile service provider.

Memory card


Have you formatted memory card in phone before you started storing data on it? By formatting the memory card it will set up folders which the phone will look at to determine different types of data, i.e. photo folder holds photos, video folder holds mp4 &3gp, and music folder holds mp3 etc.
Then when your memory card is connected to your pc drag and drop data into correct folders and then phone should be able to recognise the different types of data. Hope that helps?
Only other thing I can think is that your memory card is too large to be recognised by your phone? It will only support upto and including 2gb Micro SD cards.

LG Viewty mp3 file problems


I had the same problem but fixed it by transferring the desired mp3 file to the phone memory instead of the memory card. Apparently some mp3 files saved on my 4G memory card, although they worked with the music player, could not be used as ringtones (Invalid file error). This may be one problem with using a 4G card on the Viewty.

Saving music on my micro sd..


The only way the music can be played on a cell phone is if it is in mp3 format. you also have to list the songs individually (they cannot be separated into folders). to listen to the music you should have some sort of music player on the phone that will play the songs.
