THE FASTEST AND EASY WAY IS TO FORMAT THE SD CARD ON UR PHONE. THEN TAKE IT OUT PUT IT ON UR PC USING A SD CARD READER(WHICH MOST COMPUTERS HAVE NOW). OPEN MY COMPUTER AND OPEN ON THE MEMORY STICK AND UNDER THE <B>MY MUSIC</B> FOLDER ADD THE SONGS DIRECTLY!!!!


FASTEST AND EASIEST WAY<BR>

<B> IT ALSO BEATS PAYING FOR A USB CABLE AND SOFTWARE!!!</B>

is there any way to get around the fact that the music player on the phone won't read into folders you place in that "my music" folder?

The main problem that I'm experiencing is that having a bunch of song title inside of 1 directory, is not what I call a good solution, especially when you're getting up near several gigs of music.

Can you somehow get the music player to scan through more than just the my music directory?

LG VX8550 - getting music onto the MicroSD

Hi. I just got a Sony Bluetooth radio so I had a reason for figuring out how to get music onto my Chocolate.

After formatting the MicroSD card in the phone, the easiest method is to put the card in the USB adapter on your computer and dump files into the my_music directory. They MUST be on one top level as folders are not recognized. But, the Artist option breaks down the music into the equivalent of folders.

BTW, the MEX-BT5100 Bluetooth receiver is really nifty. It hooks up with the phone, plays the music and handles calls automatically (then goes back to the music). It's great!

LG VX8550 - getting music onto the MicroSD
by eimmik / May 15, 2008 10:44 AM PDT

I have experienced the same problem this week when I first bought my lg chocolate on Sunday. I have been using verizon tech support, best buy help, geek squad, and in-store verizon tech support. My music files would not show up on the phone, but memory indicated the card had files on it by amount of space used. I played someone else's card(at the verizon store) in my phone and it worked, but not my card in hers or mine.
I exchanged the micro sd card and the same thing still happened. Nothing! Tonight after discussing this by phone with a tech rep, we thought it might be my phone. SO. I go again to Best buy, but as a last ditch effort before exchanging the phone, I returned the micro sd card and bought a San Disk 2 GB - same thing- but more expensive by $10. IT WORKS. The one that did not- was PNY, made in japan.

you could...
by euge963 / January 23, 2008 6:34 AM PST

you could try to make more folders within the main directory. see if it reads them / if you can put music in them. the thing i hate about chocolates are the fact that verizon put this ugly thing over them called vcast. it blocks you from being able to move around what you want where you want and how you want. thankfully i dont have verizon and i can send anyone songs through bluetooth from and to my phone
