If you have one of the cool LG VX9800 cell phones and wonder how you get MP3 songs into the phone, mp3juice here is a short tutorial on how to do that. Easy to follow and easy to do. You’ll be jamming to new tunes on your cell phone in no time.
The first mistake many users make in trying to get MP3’s on their LG VX9800 is that they simply insert the card into the phone. This won’t work and the cell phone will tell you that it can not find any MP3’s.
What you need to do is format the card for your cell phone. You do this by inserting the SD card into the VX9800 first. Then remove the SD card and insert it into your computer. Your computer should tell you that new hardware was found.
Depending on what type of computer and software you have, you may see a directory listing with names such as: MY FLIX, My Sounds, My PIX, My MP3. Select “My MP3” and then move the songs you want into this folder. Eject and reinsert the SD card into your VX9800.
One thing you should keep in mind is that you need to keep the Name of the MP3 song to 43 characters or less or the phone will not show the MP3.
I also hear a lot of people complaining that the cell phone does not recognize their MP3 songs when in fact, they have the songs in the wrong format. Sounds funny I know, but the songs have to be in a MP3 format, not a DRM.
If you have problems with the MP3’s showing up in the VX9800, then you may have to get a WMA to MP3 converter. There are several places on the Internet where you can find these.
For Mac users, you may have to convert the .aac songs to MP3 in order to get them to work. You can do this easily in iTunes. Here’s how.
In your library, highlight the song or songs you want to convert. Go to iTunes preferences, advanced, importing. Make sure that the Import using pull down menu shows MP3 Encoder. Close preferences and in iTunes click on the Advanced pull down menu. With the song or songs you want to convert still highlighted, choose convert to mp3. After it’s finished you will have two copies of each song you converted. The original aac and the new mp3. You can delete the aac or keep both. The mp3s can be moved into the MY MP3s folder on your MiniSD (make sure you don’t put them in the MY MP3 Playlist folder) card then the card can be put into your LG VX9800 cell phone.
