Question about Cell Phones
Hi, Not all cell phones come with special software to transfer photos, music, video and other file formats from your computer to your phone. In fact, some cell phone providers desire that you purchase this software separately and make it difficult to transfer music any other way. However, most users can typically hook their cell phone to a computer with a USB cable and transfer music to a cell phone as if it were an external drive, such as a USB stick or an SD card. Note: This process might not work with all cell phones.
Connect your cell phone to the computer using the USB cable.
Wait for the computer to recognize your cell phone as an external drive. If a dialog box does not pop up with the name of your cell phone within a few minutes, open the Windows Explorer folder and navigate to the external drive in the left pane. Sometimes the name of the drive will show up as "Removable Disk."
Open the music folder of your cell phone. In some cases, it might be under a "My Media," "My Music" or similar folder.
Drag and drop the music files into their own folder under the cell phone's music directory. This way, it should be convenient to find the files once they're on the phone. Wait for the files to copy completely.
Disconnect the cell phone from the USB cable. If there is a Safely Remove Hardware icon in the bottom right corner of your taskbar, use this utility to safely remove the drive.
Tips & Warnings
If your cell phone supports an SD or micro SD expansion card, transfer music onto this card using the above method instead of transferring music directly to the phone. This way, you don't hog space with large music files and slow down the performance of your phone.
According to Simple help.net, sometimes a USB connection icon will appear in the window of certain cell phone types when you connect. In some cases you might need to tap this icon to confirm the USB data transfer before you can begin moving files to the phone.
