    Forget Kies.. It's buggy cumbersome and bloatware.

    To copy files directly from your PC to your phone, connect USB cable, and you should see USB Connected Icon on the phone.

    From phone
    Menu
    Notificaitons
    USB Connected
    Mount.

    The full contents of the SD card will be visable to the PC as an external drive.
    Copy your music files to a new directory on the SD card.


    If you wish them to appear as ringtones etc, create a directory on the SD card as follows, and put your files there.

    For Ringtones

    media/audio/ringtones

    For Alarms sounds

    media/audio/alarms

    For Notification sounds

    media/audio/notifications


    And why not try out one of the many replacement Music Apps on the market. Lots of good free ones.

    try doubletwist. its a full media app for 'droid, with video, podcasts, music etc. it has a nice interface too. It also has a PC companion app, which is very iTunes-ish, easy to use, will sync all stuff, and if needed auto-convert file format for video and audio to one which will work, I use it....
