Ok... have been trying to figure out why my iPhone 3.3 upgrade to iOS 4 broke sync, and found a post that really helped me. Here is what I did, tried, and what worked:

Plugged in phone after upgrade, sync said "New phone detected" and said autoplay disabled (So far so good)... the track numbers came up like it was about to play something... but then it said "USB Disconnected". I tried 3 times, all did the same thing. Finally, after the forth try, it no longer even RECOGNIZED the phone was plugged in! It wouldn't even charge it.

So.... I restarted truck (2010 F-150) - didn't help, reset sync back to factory defaults (Man I hate doing that) - didn't help, restarted truck again, didn't help, reset phone, didn't help.

Then, I ran across a old post that mentioned rebooting the sync system. Microsoft?? Reboot? Nah... couldn't be that easy! The poster mentioned that the only way to reboot the system was to pull the fuse (On my 2010 F-150, it's labeled "SYNC", Fuse #13, passenger's feet compartment). I pulled it (Had the car on the time), SYNC disappeared from my screen and it brought me back to "FM". Waited 15 seconds, put fuse back in... took about 5 minutes to "reboot", and viola!! EVERYTHING was there! Indexing took about 3.5 minutes with 8GB music, and I have tried it twice... VERY VERY fast. Nothing else has been enhanced (boooo), but it works! Hope this helps someone like it helped me!

    Will you marry me? Seriously, I thought I was going to need to drop several hundred to get my problem fixed. It stopped recognizing my phone, wouldn't SYNC, and my USB wouldn't even charge! I believe this all happened after I played a DVD in the car for the first time. Thanks for blogging this. It was more helpful than you know. 3/9/2012 ~ 2010 Ford Taurus

Is there any way to transfer my iTunes music to my iPhone or do I have to pay just to have music on my phone


Use the power cord for the iPhone. It should be the USB connector on one end and the small plug on the other end. Plug the USB into the computer and open up iTunes. Under the FILE menu at the top, there should be a pull down sub menu that say "devices" SYNC.
Your iPhone will appear on the side bar once you switch to the "Playlist" page. You can drag a whole playlist into your phone icon or do individual tracks. At least, that's what I do.
Let me know if this works for you.

How do i download music to my mp3


MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files onto your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player.
For CD disks you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.

How do i put music on my digital touch mp3/mp4


There are a few different ways to do this. One is to connect it to USB, then go to my computer, find the drive with your player on it. Leave this window open, and then go and open up your music folder, click and hold on the song you want, and drag the folder over to the file folder with you player on it, and let go of button and it will be added. To add all your songs from music folder, click left top song so it is highlighted, then press and HOLD the shift key, the scroll to bottom right last song, click on it. Now all songs should be highlighted, then drag and drop all these files to your mp3/mp4 file folder and they will be added.
The other way is to get windows media player 11. Sync your device with sync button, create a playlist with all your songs, then add them to sync list and hit sync and they will be added to your player

Cannot copy music from my media player on my sandisk memory card


I have not posted a help request, so I do not know how the picture is tied to this question ? If your cell phone has a standard SD memory card, there are a couple of ways to "transfer" pictures and music.

1. Your SD chip MAY have come with a larger carrier to fit into some of the computer SD slots that have been provided over the past few years for cameras, etc ? Once plugged in, your computer should recognize it like a small USB flash drive, then it's a matter of cut-n-paste.

2. Alternative is to go to Fry's Electronics and pick up a USB-to-Your Cell Phone adapter cable.. mine, for my Samsung Gravity was $15.00. Then, at least on my phone, I have the option to switch the USB connector from Modem to Storage drive, pick the latter. Your cell phone manufacturer, like my Samsung, may have a utility program that allows you to "manage" your phone.. contacts, pictures, ringtones, music, etc.. cut-n-paste again.. mine allows me to sync the phone to my Outlook for constant updating, etc..

3. Go to Fry's or ? and pick-up an inexpensive "USB Bluetooth Adapter". Plug it into a USB port on your PC, install the software, have it detect your phone, authorize it, now you're wireless vs corded.. follow the remaining steps in #2 above.

As an added note.. if you have a laptop, and your cell service has an Internet package for your phone, for around $20 month, I have a Highspeed ( 460 kbps ) wireless ( via bluetooth ) or the cord, modem.. AND you can still receive calls ( at least on mine ). AND it doesn't require a Hot Spot, only cell reception.

the only way to get the songs of to save then is to use a program to rip the songs from you ipod to your computer such as CopyTransSuite
as for adding and deleting songs, whe the ipod mounts on itunes uncheck the automatically sync music button and you can ckick the music folder and delete by right clicking and delete
if the songs are in someone elses library, if you sync your ipod to your computer the songs will be deleted.
use caution...
hope this helps

You need to subscribe to an online music service or use Windows Media Player to download songs:

Windows Media Player is made by Microsoft. The general help page for Windows Media Player is:

Through this link, you can enter a variety of search terms that will help you find what you are looking for (exs.: “add files to my mp3 player”; “delete files from my mp3 player,” etc.)

Important Vocabulary:

The code word for “mp3 player” in Windows Media Player is “DEVICE” or “portable device”

The code word for adding files is “SYNC,” “syncing,” or “synchronizing”

The code word for copying files from CD is “RIP,” or “ripping”

The code word for files stored on both My Computer and my Mp3 player (when it is connected to the computer) is “LIBRARY”

Got a new SD Card + Card Reader but when I download my music on it...


You cannot just move WMA songs onto the card and play in the MP3 player. MP3 format may work this way, but for sure the player only seems to be able to recongize WMA files when syncd through Windows Media with the USB cord attached. Be sure the DESELECT 'copy folder hierecy' under the sync options/properties of the MP3 player drive or SD card drive.

When using XP Pro and Windows Media Player you can transfer WMA but you have to go into the PROPERTIES of the drive (mine was mp-556/G: drive) and DESELECT the option to transfer folder hierecy. The MP3 player is not able to reconginize the folder structure it usually creates.

This player only seems to be able to transfer MP3 format with Vista, using windows media player sync. I can syne MP3s formats, but not WMAs at all. Unless someone found otherwise
