    Suggestion: don't use Disc2phone.

    You can transfer music to the phone and have it work with W800 if you
    make sure there is the following directory structre:

    Artist directory (folder)
    in which is the Album directory (folder)
    in which is the actual files.

    So I have the contents of Revolver in many mp3 files, in a directory
    called Revolver, which is itself in a directory called Beatles.

    Cheers

    Doug

    You might need to try it a few times to get the key combinations
    exactly right, but the cable with the W800i is fine to do it with.
    When you get it connected, it'll take you on to the next screen,
    download and install the firmware. It takes some time, so you won't
    blink and miss it!

    Poor advice, Disc to Phone is very good.....stick with it to get it running.
