    Ok… this is all crap. Nothing will work on Driod 2.2 – the stock music player is useless. Alex is right, download something else.

  2. Ronnell says

    It only worked for the sounds I recorded on my phone. I couldn’t find the two other files on my phone. they are in the folder on the computer but not my phone I have an Motorola i1.

  3. Ronnell says

    I foloowed these steps and it worked for what I recorded with my sound recorder but not for two mixtapes I downloaded from Datpiff

    Thanks Alex Racano, I suggest people do what Alex Racano’s comment said. I was able to just pull up any song i wanted on my phone right there for free, and listen to it right away using the iMusic app.
