Will This Work??


Sep 12, 2006, 1:47 PM
I just picked up the LG VX8100 mostly because I wanted a way to listen to music easily at work. The problem is I did not buy it from a store.

I found a usb adapter for the mini sd card and I was wondering if I could just use this to 'drag and drop' my itunes mps3's onto the mini sd. Will the phone recognize and play music this way? Or do I need the data cable and software?

as long as the mp3's go into the MY_MP3s folder on the card and the mp3's titles are not over 43 characters (47 including ".mp3") in length, and the songs are not DRM encoded (Digital Rights Management) Paranoid
If they have long file names, simply shorten them.
If your music is DRM encoded, you need to re-encode them without Digital Rights Management. some people suggest the programs "audacity" or "soundforge" to do this. I have had much luck doing this with Musicmatch jukebox (free). Cool
Good Luck Eh?

well you have to goto the secret menu. just goto the menu under CONTACTS press 0 and put in six 0's till you get there and press up to get to the bottom of the list. press ok, and press down then OK again and you can do it Smile Very Happy

Make sure you enable the mp3 player, otherwise it will only play WMA's
