Not able to transfer music from my pc to my Thunderbolt.

I am trying to figure out how to transfer music from my pc to my Thunderbolt.  Everytime I plug the phone into my computer, I go to disk drive and it is supposed to pop up with a removable disk on my pc.  It does not do this.  I don't know what to do from here.  Please help!!

How long do you give it because it sometime takes a little bit before the "Removable Drive" shows in the computer directory..

You could also try going to "my computer" and find the removable drive there.  It may just not be popping up on it's own.

You might want to make shore you are instaling the drivers. It shoudl automaticlay prompt you for this option if not you can go to HTC's web site and find them there as well. Not shore if you need to do this to make the phone discoverable with your PC (I beleve Windows 7 may requier it) I know with my phoen the forst time i pluged the phone in I DL the drivers and software that it prompted me to and i have never had a problem moving files from the Phone to the PC or the other way.

 

Good Luck and hope this helps

 These are stock drivers with windows so to use it as a Storage Device the drivers should install automatically;  Usually you just have to worry about drivers for HTC Sync mode..

You can try this method if the direct connection method is still not working or you want to save your usb cable  for something else like charging the battery only. This method uses a WiFi connection so I hope your computer is using Wifi to connect to the internet. Download "File Expert from Android Market. Download Filezilla from the internet. Install filezilla on your computer. Turn WiFi on in your Thunderbolt. Start  File Expert on your phone and start Filezilla on your computer. Set up the FTP connection through the File Expert menu. Log into FileZilla. Filezilla will then display the contents of you sd card in your phone. From that point it is a matter of drag and drop from the directory on your computer to the directory on your phone sd card. All of this is done wireless so you will never need a cable again for the task you are trying to do.

Here is a link to Filezilla on the internet.

Both programs are free and they work great for me.
