    I have a Sandisk SD card in my Motorola G 3rd generation. I store all my music that I have downloaded from cds and converted to WAV files on itunes. When I click and drag the songs or albums to the sd card, and put the sd card back into my phone, it messes up. On Itunes it will say the album and song and everything but when I transfer it, it goes all weird. For eg. A warped tour album. The songs are in order and are normal. When I move them to the sd card and into my phone, it says for the first song " 01- go go go 02- Black Box" instead of just saying " go go go and Black Box". It also forgets the album and artist information so it can only be found under the songs section on the google music app installed on my phone. PLEASE HELP!!!!

    I don't use iTunes anymore but I thought you had to use an android app like Doubletwist or iSyncr to sync to an android phone ???

    On my PC? I use my laptop to store the music and then just click and drag it into an SD card. I think its a problem when clicking and dragging it changes the information, because the only time is messes up is with CDs that I burned to the laptop.

    Could be a problem with the way iTunes has tagged the WAV files, and the phone's music player can't read it, and so is only showing the filenames, e.g. "01 - Love Me - Justin Bieber", but no info or "unknown" in the song, artist, genre, etc. fields.

    I've got some CD rips by iTunes done as M4A(which is lossy compression of course), and any Android music player has no problems with them, reading and correctly showing tag info.

    How do I download them as M4A. The only options are MP3, AIFF, AAC, Apple Lossless, and WAV.

    AAC is the one you want, the file type is M4A. MP3 should work as well.

    Not sure if many Android player can play Apple Lossless or not.
