Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players

2 Answers

I have the Samsung SCH-R500 cellphone. Using Windows Media Player on my laptop, I downloaded in MP3 format from a music CD onto an SD microchip portable device (yes, I did format the chip beforehand). But when I transfer the microchip to my cellphone, the music folders show empty and the message "No MP3" appears. I did the same exact thing with my wife's LG cellphone with its respective SD microchip and everything worked fine. What's with the Samsung?

    Can't believe the quote marks on my message above were spelled out!! It should read "No MP3". Geeesh!!

    I also have a Samsung SCH-R500 cell phone and I purchased 2 different micro sd cards. Formatted them both first, and took it back to the store. No one can figure out why it won't play. I placed the cards in other phones and they worked fine. Mp3 feature was one of the main reasons for choosing phone.

The instructions which came with my phone state that the card must be formatted using the phone... done under Tools > Mass Storage. My instructions also state that music transfer is only possible using bluetooth or the USB cable. However, I found this to be untrue. After formatting the card using the phone, I placed the card in my computer and created a folder on the card called my_music. Placing mp3s in this folder seems to add them to my phone's playlist.

This is what you do you insert your sd card go to menu then settings then memory info then card memory then format card after that you conect your card to your computer and instead of using windows media player go to your compputer folder and choose your sd card folder then choose the my music folder and drag all the mp3 files you want it should work it worked with me

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player using the USB cable. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable to the MP3 player and the computer.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track. Click on this link for instruction on converting music files to mp3 file format :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r5798418-creating_transferring_mp3_music_files

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
