    Re: HELP, how do you put music from comp to Micro sd

    i'm a noob to but I just picked up a micro SD card and reader tonight and got music on my phone but can't make them a ringer yet!grrr...anyway just go to start/my computer/ and then open whatever your memory stick is( like drive J or something but could be different) then you should c four different folders(music,video,images and something else) then copy your music file from your computer to the music folder on your memory SD disk and there you go it should be in your memory on your phone and then just copy and paste into your music folder on your phone's memory( could be different I have a A707 sync) but good luck!

    it should format the memory card as soon as you put it in...or try adding music to your phone and then turn the phone off and then back on again; I have heard it works on some other phones but other than that i'm not sure-"danphillips" should be able to answer yuor question...look him up on other posts and send him a message and he will help ya.

    I have the exact same problem with my new A920. My card reader/writer is able to extract information(photos) off the card, but every time I attempt to write to the card, I get the exact same error messages as sky9; 'The disk is write-protected Remove the write-protection or use another disk.'

    All I get at Samsung's 'wonderful' website are the instructions on how to transfer mp3's to the card from the PC, which always ends with the above-mentioned error messages. Could it be the card reader/writer? Are there card readers/writers available that accept the micro sd card directly without the adapter?

    I really could use some help, as I purchased this phone primarily for the MP3 capability and haven't been able to use it yet(I refuse to pay $3.00 plus browsing charges [$.05/kb, or $50/MB]for every mp3 download from my service provider).

    I notice none of you mentioned trying to use your bluetooth capabilities to transfer the songs to the phone then from the phone to the memory card. One more step i know but i do it when things get dicey .

    My PC has no wireless/bluetooth capabilities. My SD card reader works fine with a notrmal SD card. IS it possible the reader/writer is having problems with the micro sd in the adapter? Are reader/writers available that accept the micro sd memory cards directly? Any answers would be appreciated.

    You could get a USB bluetooth dongle very reasonably priced . yes check this site out . I know it looks like it was thrown together in an hour but it's a reputable site .

    Re: HELP, how do you put music from comp to Micro sd

    Me and my bestfriends boyfriend were haven't the same problem and we were both getting really mad at our computers... so i kept on researching it and they kept on saying just drag and drop...but that was not working... so i came across this website and all you have to do is on the side of your micro sd card there is this little switch you want to make sure that the little switch is not pushed down because that is what makes it writers protected or what ever then you put the card back in your pc and it should work the switch is on the bigger card not the smaller one... just make sure that the little switch is pushed up before you put it in your pc... i hope this helps you!!!
