Those who have access to the Web on their MP3 player phone can easily upload or download songs from the Internet straight to their device (or email themselves the song files). For those without Internet capabilities, however, you will need to put songs on your device using a USB cable or Micro SD storage card and adapter that come standard with most cell phones. Before you begin, be sure you have enough room on your phone or storage card for all desired MP3s, and that your SD card is properly formatted for your player.
Turn off your cell phone and remove the Micro SD storage device. Plug the SD card into its adapter, and its adapter into your PC port. If you're using a USB cable, turn your phone on; connect one end to your computer and the other to your phone.
Choose to "Open Folder to View Files Using Windows Explorer," after your computer recognizes the device connection.
Navigate to your storage card's "Music" folder in Windows Explorer.
Open a new Windows Explorer window and locate the songs you want transferred to your SD card. Drag and drop the songs' icons from your PC to the SD card's "Music" folder and wait for them to copy.
Safely remove your SD card from your computer by clicking the "Eject" button in the lower right-hand corner of your PC's main screen. Wait for confirmation that it is safe to remove your device before inserting your card back into your phone.
- Failure to safely remove your storage device can result in loss of file contents.
