then not sure how to go further to get to the root folder.

Hope anybody can help.

I was informed that to be able to see the internal phone memory from the p c was to make the phone a mass storage device. Then I could put the mp3 file in the correct folder.

All I can do just now is see the memory card.

Do I need to root the phone?

when you connect the USB lead you get the USB SYMBOL APPEAR ON SCREEN OF THE PHONE.. TOP LEFT.... put you finger on it and drag down then tap USB connected; you then get option to mount the storage card for use on pc.

all is clear now!

you need a file explorer.. download one from the Market (Icon to connect to the Market is on your phone in the sliding folder on main page of your phone)... you will then be able to see SD card and phone memory...
