Default 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).

If the information is useful, Like the post, if the person was helpful, Thank the member.

Actually, on a Mac, dragging the drives (2 of them show up - internal and external SD drives) to the trash generally will not end this sync, or even work (the drives will not eject themselves). I have read other posts on this issue, and if you just end the connection on your actual phone, and then unplug the USB cable from your phone or computer, everything will be fine. Your transfers will work as intended, and you will get an error message on the computer, which can be ignored.

EDIT: it turns out that if you select one drive, then hold shift and select the other, you can then drag both to the trash. however, you need to end the connection on the phone regardless, so this step isn't really necessary. as i said before, the error you get on your computer if you don't eject the drives first can be safely ignored.

AT&T introduced the world to a 4.5 inch near-beast. With a different processor here and more RAM there, this could have been their Galaxy S II. Instead, it's closer to a Galaxy S phone than anything. It has a beefier 1.2GHz single-core Humm... Read More
