Hello all- I have just got a 16gb card in my SGS and have been using Windows Media Player as well as Winamp and it never seems to come out correctly.
I always end up missing album are and the some files end up being deleted, it's just not as straight up and easy as I believe it should be.
What programs do you guys use to get music on your I9000 ?
I was wondering if Kies was any good but I found Kies to be quite slow and spotty.
Any good solid ways to make transfers easy, especially with album art ?

Cheers for any information !!

Yes, agree totally. use USB Mass storage function and copy and paste, its the least painful way

erm itunes?? isnt that fruit? hmmm lol yes if you find they work fine and are smaller without sound quality loss you should be good. It will just be encoded at a higher rate thus making the file smaller.......or you could change the encoding rate of mp3s to make the file smaller and avoid fruit lol

I use Windows media player. Just set it to never auto sync and nothing will be removed ever. Also just manually sync the songs u want. I also do this via a card reader and my micro SD card while phone is off very fast.

Use "Media Player" USB Connection mode and sync via Windows Media Player... it will work... the playlists, however, won't.

So, manually copy your playlists (after syncing) to the /sdcard/Playlists folder and use a player that can read .wpl files (PlayerPro)

All will work fine.

Cheers for the help guys. I may avoid WMP and try the card and reader and just transfer that way.
I am quite picky about album art, and it turns out the cover art app is very good !!

Cheers again, LL13-
