The Verizon Samsung Stratosphere is a great device for listening to music. Naturally, you’ll want access to your music library from the device. Here are two methods for how to transfer music from your PC to the Samsung Stratosphere.
Via USB connection
1. From the Home screen, select Applications and open the Settings app.
2. Select USB settings > USB mode and set it to Mass storage mode.
3. Connect the Stratosphere to your computer using a USB cable. Your computer should detect it as a removable disk. Windows users look under Computer, Mac users look on the Desktop/Finder.
4. Open the removable disk and create a folder named Music. You don’t really have to do this step, but it’s a good idea to keep your music organized within a folder on the SDcard.
5. Drag and drop any music files you want on the device to the Music folder on the removable disk. The Stratosphere supports non-DRM MP3, WMA and AAC music files.
If you use iTunes, you can drag and drop your music straight from the iTunes window.
Windows Media Player
WMP users can select the Sync tab and drag music over to the sync list. Selecting Start sync will automatically copy music in the list to the Stratosphere.
6. When you have completed transferring files, tap Disconnect storage from PC on the Stratosphere’s screen, and your music is ready to listen to from the Music Player app.
From the cloud
A mobile solution that’s becoming popular is the “cloud” music player. This method takes your music library and uploads it to a service. You can then connect to the service over the Internet and play your music right from the cloud. The two most popular services for the Android OS right now are Amazon MP3 and Google Play. These services handle everything from uploading to playing the music and are extremely easy to setup. We suggest you have a look at one or both of them.Last modified March 21, 2012
