Copy music to Infuse 4G [basic]
This post is in response to a question asked in the introduction forum.
How to copy music to your Infuse 4G manually.
First thing you need to do is to connect to your PC/Mac as usb storage, not in Kies or Debugging mode. From your home screen go to menu>settings>wireless & networks>usb settings and select prompt on connection. Now plug your phone into your PC with the usb cable and you should be prompted how you want to connect. Select mass storage. There may be additional screens to connect, please allow the connection.
You should see your phone appear on your PC as removable storage. Open that drive in explorer (PC) or Finder (Mac).
If you do not see a folder named "music" create it. This is strictly for organizational purposes. Copy your music into this folder in formats that Android can read (.mp3, .m4a, etc.). Please be advised that any files with digital rights management (DRM) will not play.
If you have used iTunes to manage your music library, please keep the folder structure the same so that iTunes playlists can be exported directly to your phone. iTunes uses /music/Artist/Album/Tracks.mp3 convention to organize the file library.
Once the files are copied, safely unmount the phone. On a PC, double click "My Computer" and right click on the drive letter associated with the phone and select eject. On a Mac drag the drive icon on your desktop to the trash to unmount.
On your phone, unlock the screen and turn off usb storage mode. Android will scan your sd card and make the music available to your media player(s).
