    Hi every1, I have a LG choclate vx8500 that I'm trying to get music from my hard drive to. I bought a 1g Micro S card and reader. I copied 2 albums to the card and put the card into the phone but for some reason the phone keeps telling me (list empty) for the all songs,playlist,album etc.. I did format the card before doing anything else and I know the albums are on there because once i put it back in the card reader it comes up on the computer..:flamemad:
    I cant figure it out. Could anyone help me out?

    You have to put your music files in the "my_music" folder on the card. Also, make sure you are not putting the music in subfolders, as the phone will not read further than the first folder for your music.

    Yes I have been putting it into the (my_folder). As far as subfolders what do you mean? That sounds like the problem because the files are saving properly to the card but the phone won't read the card. If you could explain it to me I would greatly appreciate it. (Its been kicking my ass...lol) Thanks

    If you have your music filed in folders within the "my_music" folder, they are called subfolders. You phone can only read the first layer of folders, so you would need to get rid of any subfolders. Also, make sure your filenames are short (less than 20 characters) or your phone may not recognize them.

    If none of this works, make sure you actually have actually ripped your music to MP3 or WMA files as they are the only types your phone can play. AAC, MP4 or any other filetype will not be recognized.

    Good luck, keep us posted on your progress.
