5 April 2012 One Comment

Recent Android phone users are sometimes confused regarding how to move or transfer song/music and video from their computer or laptop to their Android phones. Due to unusual syncing, all android customers need to follow some steps in order to listening music and watching videos. In this discussion, we are presenting some easy steps in order to transfer music from your computer to Android phone. Android phones normally support music in the well-accepted MP3 format. Maximum Android phones also support M4A, WAV and MP4 files. Digital Rights Management (DRM) protected song may not support in Android phone. For this reason, before transferring these files to your Android, you need to convert them.

Step 1: In the first step, you need to mount your phone as a removable USB drive. Connect the Android phone into your laptop or computer using USB cable provided with it. A USB notification icon will arise in the “Menu” button of your Android phone. Then drag the “Menu” button down in order to show the USB connection dialog. Click the “USB connection” point then a menu option will arise and then select “Mount.”

Step 2: Go to the “Start” button then double-click in “My Computer” and open drives of your computer. In drives section of your computer, you will find one new “Removable drive” then double-click in this icon.

Step 3: Go to the music folder of your computer’s hard drive or any folder where you have stored your music or video songs. Select and copy all the song from your laptop or computer on the new “Removable drive” (Phone). Then you may need to wait few minutes while your laptop or computer copies the song over to your Android phone.

Step 4: In this step, just change your phones mount status through clicking the additional drive removing icon. Here you will find “Safely remove mass storage device or hardware” icon. Click in this icon and then select “Turn-off USB mass Storage” and then “Turn-Off.”

Step 5: Disconnect the USB mass storage cable of your Android phone.
