Re: Can't sync from Media player
Have you tried to download the PC Studio software for your phone? i think that you need a special program to do that. look for it @ samsung.com or here is another way: get an adapter for your microSD, and jsut hook it up to your computer via a card reader. drag your music into the MUSIC folder. tada!

If you have a type of media sync like windows media player you can start media player and select sync. This will sync your computers mp3 files with your phone. Then all you have to do is select the songs you want on your phone and copy them to the synced device.
I discovered I was sold and using a USB charging only connector. To remedy my problem I bought a memory card reader to place my phone memory card into so I could use it directly as a memory stick in my computer. It worked perfectly. Thanks
Plug your phone into your computer using the usb cable. Then go into media, and my music. Click sync and it should connect then just use the windows media player. Thats how I do it. If it doesn't connect its because you dont have the right drivers installed. I dont know if doing it the way you are is supposed to work or not. I have never tried it. Hope this helps. Good luck.
The easiest was is to use a USB card reader. The range for $20 - $50 at consumer electronics stores and are pocket-able. These have drag and drop functionality to where all you have to do is copy and paste the song you would like onto your memory card.
Another way would be to use Windows Media Player 10 or 11. Both have the "Sync" tabs at the top of the program making it easy to sync songs to your phone. You have to make sure that the phone can be plugged in USB-style to the computer.
Have you set your memory card as the default connection? If not then go to your phones settings menu and select the connectivity option. Then select USB settings. Next select memory card as your default connection. Ok now your default connection is set so plug the USB adaptor into your computer then into the phone. If the computer does not automatically detect the phone open the computers control panel and select add hardware. Follow the promps in the wizard. It should come up as USB mass storage device. Once your device is recognized there are a couple of different ways to get music stored on your memory card. First is to have whatever media player is on your computer to detect your device. Then put the songs you want to tranfer into the sync list. Once you have done that click start sync and it will copy them to your phone. If the first option is not an option then onto the next. Second is to click on my computer and select the drive letter that represents your phone(mass storage device). Once that is open select the file where your music is stored and highlite the files to transfer. Once you have the files highlited drag and drop them into the window for your phone. The files should start to transfer at that point. Wait for the tranfer to complete then disconnect the USB from your phone. Open the digital audio player on your phone. It should say "updating music directory" then main menu once it is finished updating. Scroll down and select songs you should now see a list of songs. Select what you want to hear and enjoy. The first is the easiest and best way to go. The second is not hard but is more bothersome. Hope this helps.
