Hello sherribaxley

As far as I know, there is no direct way to download music onto your DSi. In order to listen to songs on your DSi, you will first need to copy the songs you want to listen to onto a compatible SD or SDHC card. Not all songs are compatible with the DSi. Some songs may be copy protected and will not work. The DSi is compatible with AAC audio files with a filename extension of .m4a, .mp4, or .3gp.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED

- A compatible SD or SDHC Card. The DSi is compatible with SD cards up to 2 GB and SDHC cards up to 32 GB.
- Compatible music files stored on a PC or MAC.
- An SD Card slot in the PC or MAC, or an external reader/writer

WHAT TO DO

1. Insert the card into the slot.
2. Open Windows Explorer (for PC) or Finder (for Mac) and select the drive being used by the card to open it.
3. Open another instance of Windows Explorer or Finder and navigate to where the music is stored.
4. Highlight the desired file(s) and/or folders, copy them, and then paste them into the first instance of Windows Explorer or Finder to create copies on the card.

If you need to convert the format of your music files, there are many freeware applications available to download on the web. I personally would suggest using iTunes, as it has a built in AAC converter.

Hope this helps. Please don't hesitate to contact me should you require any further assistance.

Why cant i download music?


hi there,
unfortunately you cannot download music directly onto the dsi from a webpage as the opera browser does not allow it or does'nt support it if you prefer. You can however put music on an SD card and listen to music that way. The music tracks need to be AAC format and the easiest way to get this format is through itunes or else if you have music in mp3 formay you will need to get an audio converter software to convert them to AAC. Hope this helps

If you want to play music on your dsi you have to convert it to aac files, most music is mp3 files but your dsi wont play mp3 files on your dsi unless to put them on your sd ames sd card, then if you put them in your system folder they open it they will play, but if you want to put them on a sd card they into the side sd slot you have to convert them, the way to do that is to download itunes, unless you allready have it, they play the track or tracks you want on itunes, stop the track and right click the track and click create aac version, wait for it to convert, you will hear a ring when it is done, then right click the converted file and click show in windows explorer, then put your sd card into your pc and drop and drag the songs you have in the windows file, you can put them in a music folder if you like, then when you have all the music you want on the card, put in into the side slot on your dsi then turn it on and open the sd card folder and you will see a music file, then open it a play your music, hope this helps you, cheers Roger M.

I dont know how to put music in my r4i


Your friend is right in part, if you want to put music on your r4i you can, if you drop and drap the music you want onto your sdcard like you would games, you can keep them in mp3 form, i did this for my grandaughter, when i put them on the card i dropped them onto the moonshl folder, then when you turn the dsi on you go to the moonshl folder and you can find the music their and play it, when your friend said you have to convert to aac files thats if you put them on a sdcard on the side of the dsi insert them, if you do that you have to convert to aac, the dsi will not play mp3 files, but it will if you put them on the games card and drop them onto the moonshl folder, if you want to convert your files for the sdcard on the side of the dsi, what you have to do is download itunes if you have not allready, put the music you want to play on your nsi into a playlist on itunes, click on the song then click on where it says create aac version, then when you do that you will see itunes converting it, when you have done that with all the songs you want, right click on each track that itunes has converted and click on where it says show in windows explorer, then when you have all the songs in windows explorer folder drop and drag them all to your sdcard, then put the card into the side slot of your dsi, turn on your dsi, and find the sd menu and their you will find your music, hope this helps you.

How do i put music of my pc onto sd card for dsi


You have to download itunes if you have not allready go it, you have to put the music you want on your dsi into a playlist on itunes, if you play it on itunes just stop the tracks and right click and pick create aac version, they have to be aac files to play on your dsi, once you have converted the music you want, right click on the tracks you want and pick show in windows explorer, then when you have them in that file, drop and drag the tracks to your sdcard,after you put the card into the pc, you can not put them on your games card because you have to put the card in the side of your dsi to be able to play them, once you have done that, turn on your dsi and open the file for the music and play the songs, if you try and put mp3 files onto the card the dsi will not play them, only if you put them on you games card, and into a system files, then the dsi will play them.

How to download songs from computer?


The new Nintendo DSi console can now play music, however it can only play AAC file type music, so if you have MP3 type, converting it is as easy as pie in iTunes. Also, once you have converted the songs, you need an SD card to store the songs in, and once done, you can put it in the DSi SD card slot and then play your music.
Hope this helps.
