    Yup, 1.1 GB free here as well. There may actually be some limit near that number that determines what is allowed to be cached. I don't know, just guessing from the consistency of numbers on 3 probably very different random devices.

    Far as I know the only way is through a computer.

    If you have them already on your computer, you can do this using the google play music manager: https://play.google.com/about/music/unlock/

    If you don't, it might be easiest to copy all the CDs to your computer then do the above to get them on there. That's how I did mine at least.

    Same here, and then of all things...., I was golfing, my N4 in my pants pocket, my buddy chipping up to the green, me not paying attention, his golf ball (not going very fast - it was just a chip) hits my pocket and shatters the back of my phone. :) Crazy!!

    That was a few months ago. It's like safety glass - broken but still in place, and the phone still works fine. I was waiting for the N6 to replace it, but now waiting for N5 to come back in stock on the Play Store.

    Yup, can always happen, but I figure at this point I'm well amortized to absorb the cost when it does. ;)

    Congrats on the new N5. :D

    For all music on my laptop, I use iTunes. I actually prefer it over anything else. Then I use Google music manager to sync whatever I add to iTunes. Then a few moments later, voil

    Not a fan of iTunes, nor any other MP3 seller ecosystem. I liked Napster back in the day when it was free and I could troll around for poor quality singles and other oddities over my dial-up connection.

    These days I'll only rip my own MP3s from CDs on the highest audio settings. Of course most music producers these days seem to prefer arbitrary loudness over dynamic range and clarity, but that's neither here nor there.

    Long story short, just rip them to a folder for that band/artist and have those in an MP3 folder, or whatever, and choose to sync that folder to your Google Play Music account. If you're using WMP to rip the CDs, you can get the album art and titles locally first that way.


    As for phones, I prefer the Nexus 5 over the Nexus 6, and recently got another Nexus 5. Cost had nothing to do with it.

    Here are some threads of mine you might find useful:



    I also really like the Mathlab Graphing Calculator PRO app. It's one of those apps that's well worth the asking price, if you have a need for an advanced calculator.

    Then there's also AdAway (if you're rooted), and the Firefox mobile browser (which I've been using forever on my desktop, though relatively recently had to download the Classic Theme Restorer add-on for it when they messed up the UI to be more contemporary, but recently switched to over Chrome on Android) with Adblock Plus and Desktop by Default add-ons.
