    I just got the new lg8600 and have not been able to sync music to the card. I run a sync, put the card in the phone, but it always says "no songs on card". I have checked to make sure all files are mp3, but it still will not work. Altell data tech is useless and so is the guy who sold it to me. I need some help. Also, I'm not really a techie, so break it down for me guys!

    Re: LG AX8600 MP3 Player

    This has been a slow process for me. Just learning this as well. Had to make sure the files were in "other sounds" or "music" files under LG Media. Still have a problem with some downloaded music not showing up on phone after seeing it on the computer as being on the disc. Even after renaming it isn't on the phone. The tracks I created off my CD's are solid. I guess I need to find a reliable music download site.
    I'm also interested in any info you get for your problem. It may help me with mine.

    I have tried several things, but to no avail. I did make sure I formatted the card. I then made sure all of the files were mp3. I then ripped one file directly from a cd and synced it. Nothing works. The cell rep tried her card in my phone and it worked. I have been working on this for a week. Somebody Help!!!

    I finally got this figured out. The prob was with my flash reader.....when I plugged it in, the window for the reader would not open and I was trying to sync through Media Player. I opened the reader window, and used MyMusic to drop and drag and now it works great. Now I would like to use a mp3 file as a ringtone and need some really easy instructions. Anyone feel like helping out the technology impaired?????

    you cannot use an entire mp3 as a ringtone. you are going to have to get a ripper, rip the song down to like 20 seconds, keep it under 200 kb or so, and then get it to your phone (not the memory card).

    There are many many threads that explain how to do that here....use our search engine to find one of the threads.

    I'm having the same problems... and I'm not quite sure what you did to get it to work. I used WMP to sync to my microSD card (thru a portable USB SD card reader). I got a big load of music on the card... about 75% of a 2GB card filled. I take the microSD card out of the reader and put it into the phone, and all I get is the error message, "No songs found in memory card". :banghead: I guess I don't quite understand (ok... I don't understand at all) what you did to get your phone to recognize the mp3s.

    Anyone?!? :confused2

    first you have to format the card. Then when you plug the adapter in to the usb drive, a window will open with a file that says "lg media". Open it and then open the music file. With this window open, open your music files and drag and drop them into the other window. Then put it back in your phone, and it should be there.

    Thanks for the reply. I just got the mp3 player figured out last night. I didn't have a window open up when I hooked the card reader back up to my computer after being formatted in the phone. I was just dumping songs onto the root of the microSD card and not getting it into the "Music" folder created by the phone formatting. For future reference to anyone who sees this thread, when you format the microSD card from the phone, it sets up a folder system on the card. Each of the folders on the formatted card correspond to a directory on the phone.

    LG_MEDIA (Main folder on card)

    Sub-folders on card........Directory listed on phone
    CAM_IMAGE..................Image > Camera Gallery
    other_image..................Image > Downloaded
    CAM_VIDEO..................Video > Video Gallery
    other_video..................Video > Downloaded
    VOICE_MEM..................Audio > Recorded Audio
    other_sounds................Audio > Downloaded
    Music..........................Music player folder

    You can then drag and drop your MP3 files and AAC files only (Not enhanced AAC files) into the "Music" folder on the card. They can not be in a separate folder within the "Music" forlder or the phone will not see them.

    You can then go into the phone by clicking Menu > My Media(7) > Music(5) then wade thru your songs by playlists, genres, albums, etc.

    Hope this helps...
