Hi everybody. This may sound a little complicated but bear with me...
I got a new cell phone last June, a Sprint HTC EVO 4G LTE. I have a Mac, I use iTunes, and I've always used iPods to store my music but I figure since I have this phone I would start using it as my new music player instead.
Now, I've tried a few different applications and none of them work with my phone.
unfortunately does not work because it says I should have the option to "mount" my phone with the computer via USB. I have the USB cord, that's not the problem -- the problem is that there is no "mount" option for me.

Here's the options my phone offers when I plug in a USB:
As you can see, there is no "mount" option. I've searched everywhere in my settings and whatnot but there just isn't one.
So, when I plug in my USB, I try all of the options my phone offers (shown above), with hopes that my phone shows up as a device on iTunes, but it does not. I'm currently using something called Android File Transfer
, which is difficult to deal with since it takes about ten minutes to import my music... it doesn't sync new songs, so instead I need to drag my music from iTunes to the Music folder on my laptop under the AFT app. Here's what it looks like:
I figure there's got
to be an easier way to transfer my music from iTunes onto my phone without the "mount" option. I don't know why this phone doesn't have the option, and the previous model of the HTC EVO 4G did, but that's what I have to deal with. Simply plugging my phone in via USB does nothing unless I drag all my music to the "Android File Transfer" window, into the "Music" folder (which I highlighted in my screenshot).
I'm sorry this is so long and descriptive, I just haven't been able to find anybody else having the same issues as I am. I feel that it's a simple thing, owning a Mac and an Android phone, but I've come to no conclusions. Many apps I've come across are for PC users so I feel that makes it all the more complicated.
If anybody knows of a simple way to transfer my music, since I can't use DoubleTwist because it requires the "mount" option which I do not have, PLEASE help me! I just want my music on my phone.
