Adding music to the enV "help please"

I recently purchase my 1G micro sd card and am trying to figure out how to add music. How do I add music from CD's? I have read about clicking and dragging, but I can't seem to get it to work. Any help would be appreciated

The method they suggest is to use WMP 10, which means you have to rollback if you have WMP 11. Also, be sure to install the drivers that came on the cd (or download them... don't know the link, sorry.)

I think some people just manually drag songs into their music folder, but I haven't tried that, and I think you run the risk of putting songs on there that aren't supported by the phone. WMP OTOH will automatically convert any songs that aren't supported. If you want to try that method, you need to get an sd card reader. (You can also try bitpim, but that's pretty flaky.)

I didn't buy the music essentials kit, because reading some of the posts on here made is seem so much easier to just click and drag. I wasn't aware that I needed an sd card reader. I will try that along with using wmp10. Thanks for your help. Do you have any suggestions to a good website where I can purchase music?

You will need the cable (or maybe just bluetooth) and the drivers to sync with WMP 10.

I haven't tried just dragging music to the sd card, so I can't endorse that. That would be as an alternative to using WMP 10, not in addition.

Whatever you do, make sure you format the sd card in your phone (not in your computer) before trying to do anything with it.

The first thing I did was format the sd card to my phone. It is times like this when I wish I was a little more up to date on this technical stuff. I thought it was going to be as simple as opening a cd with wmp as well as a seperate window showing the my-music folder and just dragging the songs over.

Not that simple, you can't drag CD songs (.wav files) to your phone and expect anything to happen. The phone plays .mp3's and .wma's. 😲 You need to "Rip" the songs from the CD to .wma or .mp3 format, then "Sync" them to your phone with the cable, or "drag-and-drop" them onto your card (my_music folder) using "windows file explorer". 😁

welcome to the newbie club 🙂 go to settings and tools then go to memory. from there you click on card memory and select "options" from the bottom right of the screen and select format. done! that is about as much as i'm able to help with. ha ha

I don't know, but are you reading howards forums? There seems to be some mac people there.

Actually, just searching on "mac" in this forum turns up some helpful posts as well.

Thank you.

I have been checking out howardforums.com, but I have not found the answer. I have a microSD and a card reader and I loaded mp3s and they show up on my card, but my phone is not showing the songs.

Any help would be welcomed!! Thanks.

Your music may be encoded with DRM (Digital Rights Management). DRM'd mp3's won't show, also, .mp3 file names need to be less than 47 characters in length (43+.mp3) 😲

I downloaded the "windows file explorer" to my computer and then was able to drag the songs over to my sd card. Now I can listen to my music! Thanks for your help. 😁
