Question about Cell Phones
My new Samsung won't transfer mp3 files. It keeps saying there's insufficient memory - nothing on it yet, though. What's wrong??
I had a the same problem, with my computer not reading the SD card when the phone was connected to the computer. However, after messing with my phone for a while, I believe I've found the solution. On the phone menu, go to;
then, "Set Phone"
then, "Select USB Mode"
and finally, "Mass Storage"
Your computer should now read the data off the SD card, as if it were a drive. I don't think the "PC Studio" program will recognize the phone after this, but you can always manually copy music into the folders on the card now.
Hope this has helped!

First you go to connectivity and select usb mode and instead of pc studio put media player

Hi, Using Data cable (any) in samsung eternity phone, you have to select either Moss Storage or Media player option under Menu > settings > connectivity > select USB mode.
Moss storage allows to access only memory card from phone and Media player allows to access both Memory card and phone memory.

You won't get asked if you want mass storage or pc studio unless you go to phone settings, set phone, the last one set usb and pick ask on start something like that its the easiest as you don't then have to go to settings each time just pick what you want, but i found that i can't get files to go on the phone with pc studio picked and I couldn't with mass storage. I finally went through windows explorer and dragged the files to the folders but I put five videos and only the first one will play. got a solution to this. boy these people who write this stuff are supposed to be so smart but they didn't get right and easy

Having same issues as you guys, I obtained a 2GB sd card for this phone, first had to load one MP3 at the time using the phone CD software, and it had to be smaller than 5MB or I will overflow the phone's memory.... it took me forever to select and do the songs... in addition, my cell phone was erasing my 2GB card data without warning... it got me really mad... I did call Samsung and no solution it all, just a good "have a nice day".
I Invested in a $16 bucks sd card reader in a local cell phone store,
and all of a suddent I can load my music directly into the already pre-formatted on the samsung cell phone card in 3 minutes.... all at once instead of 50 songs in 4 hours....
I hope this helps you the way it help me friends....

Ok I guess a memory card was the solution even though I had to pay a bill more.

I have this phone too
..and got the same troubles puttings mp3's on it with the PC STUDIO software...it was frustrating
I finally took my microSD card and formated it in the phone...to get the image, music, video folders...etc...those folders have to stay on the card...then I took my TransFlash adapter that came with the card and put it in another mp3 player. I plugged it on my pc and filled the ''music'' folder with songs...I put the card back in the phone and everything works.
DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THE BLUETOOTH TECHNOLOGY ON THIS PHONE IS COMPATIBLE WITH BLUETOOTH SPEAKERS LIKE THE PARROT PARTY?

Do you have a memory card yet? If the phone has expandable memory you may HAVE to get a memory card to put files on it. Alot of phones with expandable memory dont have much built in. You can try a small file to test it out like a few second audio clip or a small photo.

dear sir, the next suspect must be your memory card,which has been affected from viruses,while you ve transfered files or received files from untrusted devices,which eventually destroys ur mobile also.......
the first solution is to keep some of your phone memory clear,atleast 2 mb.........also keep some 100 mb free space in memory card also...if the card and mobile is fully loaded then the cam is almost dead..........
even ater changing memory card,you still face the same problem with a new or formatted memory card,then the problem is caused by virus and sometimes it might be software failure also, which causes some of the menu not tofunction,the only solution is to flash ur phone software from the nearest samsung sevice centre,it also updates your mobile software which increases the mobile speed....
thank you.....take care
