How do you transfer music?

Capo Jack 18 Apr 2010, 19:56 posted on

The manual i got From Verizon didn't tell me how to transfer music from my computer to my phone tho the guy who sold it to me said i could. How do i do it? Do i need special equipment?

See the "features" section of the review of the phone on this site, here's the link:http://www.phonearena.com/htmls/LG-Cosmos-VN250-Review-review-r_2421-p_2.html. There is no music player but that section will give you a work-around.

For those songs were purchased from iTunes, you can transfer them to a computer that is authorized for your Apple ID because they should be linked to your iTunes account.
For other songs were not purchase from iTunes, iTunes won’t help you. But you can still transfer them to computer with the help of 3-rd party software.

Yes yo can play the music on the Cosmos. simply download the driver for your phone on your computer and you can send music rite to the phone. Beware!!!! Make sure you have a Mem card for the phone or you will take up all the phones mem. it took me almost a week to figure this all out. when all is said and done open up the menu click on media center and then tones and tunes,then my ringtones. this is not a music player but you can still play all music from here. I hope this helps you.

I believe I Heard something about transfer from one phone to another Using a Micro SD Card from a phone with a music player to a phone without a music player so you are able to play music on it with the card attached.. NOTE: The more space a MICRO SD holds the higher the price...

The LG Cosmos will play MP3 and several other file formats for ring tones and sound (via the phone's basic no frills Media Center audio player). What you need is a microSD card and format that card in the phone for starters. To format the microSD card, on the phone, select "Menu --> Settings & Tools --> 0. Memory --> 3. Card Memory --> Options --> 1. Format" to begin the format procedure. After formatting the card there will be four folders created (and accessible by the phone) those folders are called; "contact", "my_pix", "my_ringtones", and "my_sounds". Once the card has been formatted you can transfer media one of two ways. One is to download and install the ""LG USB Modem Driver" from LG (see this link:http://www.lg.com/us/mobile-phones/mobile-support/mobile-lg-outlook-sync.jsp for a link to download the USB driver) and then connect the phone to the computer with a USB cable and enable the phone's USB Mass Storage mode. Enable this mode by selecting, on the phone, "Menu --> Settings & Tools --> 3. Tools --> *. USB Mass Storage". The other way is to remove the microSD card from the phone and insert it into an appropriate card reader for the PC/Mac. The computer will then recognise the card as a removable drive/card. Then you can transfer over the pictures, ring tones, sound (your music) and vCard contacts to their appropriate folders on the microSD card with Windows Explorer (or its counterpart on a Mac). When finished put the card back into the phone or end the USB Mass Storage mode. Files format supported by phone (may not be a complete list): My Pictures: png, jpg, bmp, gif My Sounds: mp3, mid, qcp, acc, aac+ My Ringtones: mid, midi, qcp, pmd,aac, mp3, wav Once the media has been added to the microSD card there they can be viewed or played from the microSD card by the phone's Media Center's Tunes & Tones, and Pictures menu options. There is NO NEED to copy the ringtones, sound, and pictures from the microSD card to the phone to play/view them. The sound will only play, there is no option to pause, rewind or fast forward the sound/ring tones. Only the vCard files must be copied from the card to the phone for the phone to list it as a Contact in the contact list on the phone. Also the phone will support syncing the Contact and Calender items from Microsoft Outlook on a PC. See this LG link:http://www.lg.com/us/mobile-phones/mobile-support/mobile-lg-outlook-sync.jsp for more information on the sync with Outlook option.

@ bennor- I don't care to use MS Outlook, can you explain how to copy the vCard file from the microSD to the phone. I've searched but not come up with anything. I'm finding out LG is very poor in documentation. I have seen that some LG phones use a particular vCard format, don you have know ledge of that also. TIA

I have followed the instructions to format the microSD Card, and get a message to enter the Phone Lock Code at the Format prompt. I have no idea what code has been assigned. Please enlighten.

The Phone Lock Code should be the last four digits of your phone number. I don't remember if I got that message when I formated my microSD card.

I have done everything in the order requested and I am still unable to access the actual music on the phone. The SD card's memory indicates that the music is there, I just can't figure out how to listen to it. Any ideas?

You may have to convert your music files. All my files were in .wma which wouldn't play so I converted them to .mp3. There are plenty of free converters if yuou don't already have one. Good luck (:

I just got my phone this weekend and was a little worried about transferring music since I have a Mac. I used the instructions that bennor provided to a tee and the music transferred beautifully. I can listen, go forward & reverse while listening to my music on the music player. I believe it said my music was mp4a while transferring(?) I think that Formatting the SD card was the key. It set up the folders on the card like he said it would and then I dropped and dragged my music from Itunes into the my music folder on the micro SD card. Put the card back in to my phone and went to the my music file and there it was! THANKS!!! It worked for my pictures too!

Gnach, once the vCard files are loaded to the microSD card's "contact" folder and the card has been inserted into the phone. Navigate to Settings & Tools --> 0. Memory --> 3. Card Memory --> 5. My Contacts. On the My Contacts - Card screen will be listed the vCard entries. you can then select Move, the select Mark to select each contact to transfer, then hit Done, which will transfer/move the file from the SD card to the phone. This process will delete the entry on the SD card. You can also select Options which will allow you to Copy or Erase the contact entry on the SD card. From the Phone's Contacts list you can copy contacts back over to the SD card if needed. To do a mass move of vCard files you can select 6. Move All To Phone from the Card Memory menu. This however will transfer all pictures, ringtones, sounds and contacts from the SD card to the phone.

Here's an easy way (I THINK THIS ONLY WORKS IF YOU HAVE AN SD CARD.):
If you have iTunes open it.
Right click the song you wanna put on the phone click "Show in Windows Explorer"
It'll show up highlighted. Then right click that again and click copy.
go to "my_sounds" on the sd card and click on that. Then when you're in the 'my_sounds_' section click paste. (:
Sorry If I didn't explain very well.

An easy way is to just go on itunes, right click on the song you want to put on the cosmos and click show in windows explorer. Then itll show up highlighted so click on it then right click it. THENN click copy. after that go to your phones "my_sounds" folder. When you get to the folder, click paste. It actually works:D
Sorry I didnt explain very well though.

You do need a card. Simply place the files in one of the audio folders. "my_sounds" or "my_ringtones" after installing the LG USB Modem Driver. The Cosmos is not a bad phone at all. Its a shame that someone is nice enough to post detailed instructions and links for people who wont read past a few sentences. If you don't make an effort, you don't deserve a reward. Good luck folks.

Bennor, your comments were most helpful. The key was creating the proper folders on the SDMicro card. Once that was done (I had to do it manually, the format function did not create them) it worked as you discribed! Thank you for you set by step directions.

This is the most useless phone. It does not support music playing. You can save music onto your sounds folder but it cannot play. Plus it is very limited in space without the miscro sd card.

I just bought the LG Cosmos, and I'm having a tough time understanding what type of file formats this thing will accept. I can't see anything in the manual on this subject. I want to use my jpegs on the SD card (which has been properly formatted in the phone) as wallpaper. The phone sees my images, but won't let me view them.
Maybe they're just to big, or the wrong file type for the phone.

I can't get to my pictures on the SD card using the media center either. So, what can I do to grab these images and use them in my phone.

Thanks for the advice.

Download v cast from Verizon website. It's free. Once done. Go to USB mass storage on phone under tools and plug phone to computer. V cast will recognize phone. You will have to set up v cast music. Easy don't worry.if you have music on computer already on windows media or some other folder v cast will searc computer and find it. Follow steps to transfer. I ad the lg cosmos a year and gav up on getting music til some1 told me to do those steps and now I'm enjoying music!
