Is this music that was purchased from the iTunes Store?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Reply to Aggie Mac Master's Post: actually both.i heard there was a converter in i-tunes.i'm new to this.are you still working on it.
Expert:  Aggie Mac Master replied 6 years ago.
Yes, the main issue with the ones purchased on iTunes, is the DRM that apple adds called FairPlay. There is a technique around it and I will get together a step by step for you.

To be clear, you are using a mac right?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Reply to Aggie Mac Master's Post: yes i am using and updated ibook G4. i don't know what DRM means but that doesn't matter at this point.a step by step would be great.when i plug in the lg vantage via USB and choose mass storage the iphoto program begins for me which is good but i do not see any indication that the phone is connected anywhere via icon.it tells me to eject the device before disconnecting but i see no indication of its connectivity so i cannot eject before i unplug it.don't understand this.hope the info helps.
Expert:  Aggie Mac Master replied 6 years ago.
Oh, ok. I thought you already knew how to load the music onto it. Do you know if your iBook has Bluetooth?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
it does not.i was hoping to utilize the USB cable for this.thats all i have.
Expert:  Aggie Mac Master replied 6 years ago.
Okay, let me look a little more into your phone before I promise I can get this done then.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
no prob.i know it connects because of the iphoto program that is displayed when i choose USB mode then hit mass storage.but the music player is difficult.it always brings me online to a music store.not i-tunes of course.i simply want to download and upload music to my computer.i-tunes is the only music program i have.just to let you know i may continue this query tomorrow , in a couple hours i will be unavailable.searching online before i found this site i found write-ups about people who were successful at this with the exact same situation.they just never explain how?i hope you continue to look into it,thank-you.

Alright I pulled up the manual on it (Click Here if you want it)

Make sure the microSD™ card has been formatted on the phone so the required folders will be created for use with your phone. To format the memory card navigate the phone to Menu > Settings > Phone Information > 6. Memory > 3. Card Memory and select the Format option. Select YES to format the microSD™ card.

They say Windows XP is required but there should be a way around that.

On the phone, go to Menu >
Settings > USB Connection >
USB Mass Storage.
A prompt will be displayed
stating “PC Connection Set”.
Press END key to return to
standby mode. After a few
seconds, a new explorer
window containing the
following folders should pop
up on the computer screen:
  • My_Audios
  • My_Images
  • My_Music
  • My_Videos

I found you a solution, albeit not the method you originally intended.

What you can do is take the microSD card out and use a device like this:

To connect it to your USB port and transfer your music.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
there is now a drive icon that appears."no name".choosing that brought me to a screen that displays:all my music, recently added,recently played respectively.choosing those does nothing.and i think the card was probably formatted.the phone did not mention some of the steps,( 6. and3.), did not even exist on the menu.needless to say.i'm further than i was.what now?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
i think i have an adapter because i upgraded to 4G and the package contained 2 adapters.can i do it that way?will i lose phone memory by doing this all the time?
Expert:  Aggie Mac Master replied 6 years ago.
I want to get you to try to find the format function, since there should be a picture folder, video folder and music folder.

If you wish to see if it will work however, you could try dragging a song from iTunes that you didn't purchase from Apple into the All My Music Folder.

See what that does.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
i was able to format.not sure what to do now.i dragged a song to "all my music but it called it an invalid file.i don't know.you gaot me on track anyway.

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
