    What program do you use to sync music to your Note 4? I am really asking the non-iTunes users, I am not. I tried Kies 3 and out of thousands of songs on my pc it found and only wanted to sync about 250.

    I need a program that will look at my Windows media player library and convert if needed and transfer the music.

    I tried to just let wmp do it and the Note 4 stock music player could not play the tunes.

    Upload them to google play music or Amazon. Takes forever depending on how many you have (I did it with 6000+ songs)

    Then you can stream your entire library & /or download favorites for offline listening.

    Have you tried syncing your phone to Windows Media Player and transferring the music that way?

    Even if you don't pay for All Access or whatever amazon calls their paid service, it's not a bad way to go.

    Word to the wise though, sorry you already started if you're using amazon, but, if I remember right, they may have a cap on the space you can use. I could be remembering wrong, however...

    Google music will upload up to 20,000 files for free if you live in a country that supports it. What a deal!

    I didn't even realize they had a limit at all.

    I have all access, so I do more streaming & downloading lately, but my collection is still in the cloud & listed in my library with others I've added as I went.

    never used Google. Amazon has a limit for music not purchased on amazon. Why not use Windows Media Player? Connect your phone, sync music from both internal and external memory to your computer. Pretty easy to do.

    Sure, it's easy, but I've got tons of music I only listen to on occasion. Why load all of it onto the SD card when I can save space & just stream it on the one time a year (or less) I want to listen to a certain song?

    You can skip the auto sync. Then just pick the files you want to load onto your phone.

    Then they're not available to stream later. It's free cloud storage. Why wouldn't you take advantage? I set my PC to upload & just let it sit & suddenly all 6000+ songs I owned were available on any device I have internet on including my phone, tablet, PC, logitech revue hooked to my TV & sound system.

    Precisely.

    You can also pin them to the local device for off-line listening.
