    I transferred a bunch of songs from my laptop to my Pre Plus, but when I go to the Music app, only 1 song appears. I went to the music folder on my laptop and just dragged/dropped the songs into the music folder on my Pre Plus. When accessing the Pre Plus on my laptop, all the songs I transferred show up as being in the music folder. However, only 1 song shows up on the actual phone.

    Suggestions?

    are they mp3? are they protected by DRM?

    That's a tough one. Need more information. Like cantaffordit says, if it is DRM-protected it probably won't show up.

    I don't think they are DRM protected. I purchased them all from Napster for $.99/ea, and have most of them on my computer for a few years. Most of them have been transferred to my old mp3 player in the past. I had trouble transferring to my Pre Plus from Napster (Napster kept shutting down), so instead I went to the music folder on my laptop and transferred from there. They show up as wma files on my laptop. The one song that did actually transfer to my phone is wma as well, and it plays fine on the phone.

    Weird...

    Ugh...yeah, I just saw that online. Have no idea why they are wma files. Tried to download a wma to mp3 converter, but it said it couldn't recognize my music and that I need to download the latest version of DirectX...whatever the heck that is. Somehow I knew this wouldn't be easy...

    it may be how Napster encodes the music... why Windows Media Audio is anybodys guess... especially since mp3 is much more widely used ... im not sure which has better compression though

    WMA had dramatically better compression than MP3.; The reason Napster/Rhapsody/etc use WMA is because they use Microsoft's DRM and it only works with WMA.

    MP3 can't be protected by DRM, so that format will always play on the Pre

    Well, that's a hassle. I freaking BOUGHT the songs and now I can't use them? I can get a DRM removal program for $19.99, but I'm not a huge music lover, so I guess I'll survive with Pandora.

    Don't forget NOT to burn them as a data cd.. Rather as a music cd

    I don't wont to use any syncing software like media monkey at this time but rather drag and drop. However, my phone does not show a "music" folder. Should I just create one with my computer's file explorer and does it matter what i name it (like 'muzic' instead of 'music')?

    Someone answered your question in another thread. Regardless of what you name the folder the phone will automatically "find" the mp3 files.

    I still use and buy my music through iTunes, and have iTunes convert my music to MP3 format when I download or import music. I don't have any issues with playing any downloaded or imported music on my Pre (minus) with doing this. Then you can just drop & drag your music from there or from your iTunes folder. Hope that helps a little.
