    How do I import music to my DI? I can't sync to my computer, so do I need to remove my card and import it that way? seems a bit cumbersome if that's the only way to do it....

    If you can't sync (meaning ?) to your computer, then you can do it the old fashion way of putting your sd card in your computer.

    What problems are you having, connecting your Incredible to your computer?

    The problem i am having is I can't sync my incredible to my computer. I don't have Outlook, so I cant sync my calendar. I just want to get music on my DI. I did download the FTP app onto my phone and filezilla onto my computer... but now I have no idea what to do. I am going to bed. I hope I have more help waiting for me in the morning... thanks

    Transferring files to/from your phone and computer works a lot like using a USB flash drive. You do not need to install any special 'sync' software to do what you are wanting to do (though there are many different options for transferring files, as mentioned by the other posters in this thread). All you need is the USB cable that came with your phone. Plug the appropriate ends of the cable into your phone and pc. A window will pop up on your phone asking for you to choose a connection type. select 'disk drive' and tap 'done'. You should now be able to access your phone's memory (and sdcard too, if you installed one) like a regular disk drive, and drag and drop anything into it from your PC.

    Thanks, it was the "select 'disk drive'" part that I was missing. I kept trying to sync my phone :blink: I knew there had to be an easy way to transfer files to such an amazing device :blush:

    You should see it in the notification bar saying "charge only". Pull down the notification bar and tap "charge only" and should allow you to change it to USB disk drive or the other options I don't remember atm.

    If any of you have been successful in loading music to your ID, you do notice that if you also loaded ringtones, they will also play along with the legit songs. Apparently, from what the HTC rep told me, when you touch/play Music, the device will hunt down all "musical items" in the device without regard to whether they are songs or ringtones. The one work around suggested was to create a playlist. For you folks who are more experienced than me, I guess that is old news. But it was helpful for me.
    I do have one question - does anyone know how to delete a song in the All Music list using DI - not using your PC? If you do, can you please post a reply. Would appreciate it.

    I have my ringtones in a folder called "SDCardDrive:/RINGTONES" (I believe capitalization matters), and my notification sounds in "SDCardDrive:/media/audio/notifications/" and they don't get mixed in with other music in the Music player app.

    No problem :) . Of course, if those directories aren't there (most likely, they are not), go ahead and right-click in Explorer -> New -> Folder and rename them accordingly. I had to do that when I was setting my Incredible up. Saves a lot of trouble, methinks.

    Simply, yes. The bigger the better. Of course, more expensive without saying. Happy listening.

    andrew_ja - tried the RINGTONES folder idea and it works. Thanks.

    One more thing, I have been using MP3 Download to get free music. Couldn't seem to get iMusic cuz it keeps asking me to pay. Found another app, Fildo, from the market. Found what I was looking for. Unfortunately, the app does not allow you to preview the song prior to download. But this time it worked.

    Do you have any other app that you use to get free music downloads? Thanks.
