PC Windows 7
« on: December 18, 2012, 05:12:49 PM »
Why is it that when I transfer an audio album from my PC to the Nexus using the USB cable and Windows Explorer, it apparently moves the data but it comes up with an error message when I want to play the album on the Nexus 7?

There could be several reasons.  First, are you sure the audio is in a format that can be played on the Nexus 7 and are you using the correct app to play it?  Also, are you moving it to the right folder on your Nexus 7 to access it with said app?

If your audio files have a mp3 or mp4 file extension it should be no problem with mx player at Google Play, if you are trying to play wma's you have to WinAmp or an app that supports them.

Why are you transferring music this way? What do you play music with? If you use the Google player (which I recommend) your going about putting music on your tablet the wrong way.

A much faster and easier way is to download Google music manger (its from Google and is 100% safe) and it uploads your entire library to the Google cloud. After it uploads everything for the first time it will only upload any new music you get after that.  You can also select certain folders.

After that you sync your Google music app and all your music will be there. You can either store the music or choose to download any of it to your internal storage for offline listening. Its really neat the way it all works and the nest part is that its free. It allows you to easily choose what music you want to keep on your tablet when you have memory concerns without a bunch or connecting and unconneting with your computer.

I'm just offering an alternative.

What is the error message. When you say transfer an audio Album, what exactly do you mean by that. When I think album I think vinyl. I'm old.
Please let us know what format the music files are and where are  you dragging them. By the way, an app like Power Amp scan your system and make a list of all your music. You might want to try that as well. It is easiest for me to put my music in the Music folder so I know where it is if I need to.

There's nothing more I can add really other than I've had no problems adding Music to my N7 using my HP Win7 laptop...
Nexus 5 stock rooted 4.4 Franco kernel

Good idea however severely limited in storage and doesn't support lossless, only mp3. Plus letting Google have access to my 2tb music collection doesn't sound like a good idea.

Google Play Music allows 20,000 songs to be uploaded by each google account. That's not exactly what I would call limited storage.  You could potentially use alternate google accounts, set up alternate users on your Nexus, and have an additional 20,000 tracks.  Or purchase additional storage....

What would be your concerns with allowing Google access to your music library?

20,000 songs...that's 800 years in prison and a 50 million dollar fine for a lot of people.

LOL.  FTW

I see nothing wrong with filling whatever microSDHC memory chips I need and carrying them with me in a credit card size holder.  Then I have whatever portion of my music library with me and available no matter if I have WiFi access or not and use no internal storage N7 whatever.
