Hudl problem

    Using conventional transfer methods, my Hudl will not accept music or video from Windows 7. I am using files that it says it WILL accept [apart from mp4 which it says it will but will but won't!]. Its acceptance of anything is limited to the folder which transfers empty.
    I have been advised to download 'Android Transfer Files' onto my computer but those that I have found will not download either!
    Any advice?

    Hello, thcampion, welcome to Android Forums! :)

    I've moved your thread to the Hudl section, in the hope that someone else with the same device may be able to offer you some help.

    I'm not actually familiar with the Hudl... when you connect it to your computer, does the computer recognise it as a USB device?

    Yes, it does recognise it along with other peripherals such as external hard-drives etc.

    You should be able to drag and drop files to the music folder on the Hudl :thinking:

    I've never even heard of the program you've been told to download... what error message are you getting? Also, have you got any file explorer app installed on the Hudl?

    Hello!

    Thanks for the reply. The app. I mentioned is the only one that I have on the Hudl.
    The error message I recieve is at the end of the synchronisation process that I carry out using Windows Media Player [cable].
    As in any normal 'sync' process in WMP, I make a song list [mp3 as recommended by Hudl] in the 'sync' field area then click 'synchronise now'. The process seems to be working : when it's finished, I am asked to look at 'sync.results' and each track appears, labelled with 'sync. stopped'!

    Rather than trying to use WMP to sync with the Hudl, you could try dragging and dropping MP3's from your computer. If you connect the Hudl to your computer and, using windows explorer, navigate to the Hudl, is there a folder called media/songs/music? If so, you should be able to find the songs you want (again using windows explorer) and then copy them to the folder on the Hudl :)

    Hello!

    Thanks for the reply--that sounds too easy but I will try it and let you know. By doing this, I am by-passing Windows Media Player.

    No probs :)

    That's how I copy MP3's to my phone... it should work fine and it would be without using WMP, which sounds to be what could be causing your issues :)

    I suggested this method, as my wife used to have issues putting MP3's on her Galaxy S when syncing with WMP... how'd you get on?

    i dont get why your using wmp to be honest just plug it into your computer and drag and drop the files to the hudl much easier. if it works which i assume it does with other people

    If that's Android File Transfer that's for Macs, so not relevant to you.

    Drag and drop is how we move files to the hudl. Never even thought of using wmp.

    Hello D-U-R-X,

    Thanks for your help. I have found a file named 'apps_getstarted_apps_content' [JSON file]. I opened it and dropprd into it and it's landed.
    The file may have come from ES Explorer but I don't know and likewise I am not complaining.

    Cheers, thc

    Sorry... I don't know what that file is.

    I was actually referring to opening windows explorer on your computer (when the Hudl is connected) and opening the "music"/"media" folder. Next, open another windows explorer window and navigate to the music that's stored on your computer. You should then be able to then click on/drag tracks to the folder on the Hudl :)

    Yes, your method does work only provided that ESExplorer is open! Thanks for your assistance.
