Question about Audio Players & Recorders

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

Got sd card and installed music from computer ,plugged into phone but when i go to music player it shows no songs on card, how ever when put back tocomputer songs show up and play


Your Samsung Hue can only play MP3 encoded files (extension mp3). If you have taken music that has been ripped using the windows media player, the default rip settings put the tracks into windows media audio format (wma) which your phone cannot read. You'll need to find a free wma to mp3 converter and convert your files to load onto your phone. You can also set Windows Media Player to default to MP3 when ripping under the Tools|Options menu item. Look under the RIP tab and change the default format to MP3. If you are already using MP3, it is possible that you are using to high of a Kbs rate on your MP3's in which case you'll need to be sure you rip tracks in a lower Kbs rate (also under the RIP tab in Windows Media Player). Here is a link to a free WMA to MP3 converter...
