Connect your phone to your computer

Most people know you can buy and download music from the iTunes Store, but did you know that you can also sync music from your phone to your computer? Here’s how:

1. Connect your phone to your computer using a USB cable.

2. On your phone, tap the “Charge this device” notification.

3. On your computer, open iTunes and click on the “Device” icon in the upper-left corner.

4. Click on the “Music” tab in the sidebar and make sure the “Sync Music” box is checked.

5. If you want to sync all of your music, leave the “Entire music library” option selected. If you only want to sync certain playlists, select the playlists that you want to sync.

6. Click on the “Apply” button in the lower-right corner of the screen to start syncing your music!

Import your music

If you have music files on your phone that you want to move to your computer, you can use the free built-in music apps on both devices to sync the songs. Depending on how many files you’re transferring and the speed of your USB connection, this process could take a few minutes to an hour.

Export your music

To sync your music from your phone to your computer, you will need to export your music from your phone to a folder on your computer. You can do this by connecting your phone to your computer with a USB cable and opening the folder on your computer that contains your music files. Once you have opened the folder, you can simply drag and drop the files from your phone into the folder on your computer.

Set up automatic synchronization

One way to sync your music files from your phone to your computer is to set up automatic synchronization. For iPhone users, this can be done by connecting your phone to your computer and opening iTunes. Then, go to the Summary tab for your device, and check the “Manually manage music and videos” box. Next, go to the Music tab, and check the “Sync Music” box. Finally, click the “Apply” button in the bottom right corner of the iTunes window. For Android users, you can set up automatic synchronization by connecting your phone to your computer using a USB cable, and then opening the “Music” folder on your device. Then, open the “Settings” folder, and tap the “Storage” option. Tap the “Mount as disk drive” option, and then drag and drop your music files into the appropriate folder on your computer.

Use a cloud service

Most modern phones come with some sort of cloud service that you can use to sync your music. This is usually the easiest way to do it, because you don’t have to worry about connecting your phone to your computer or transferring files manually.

Simply open up the cloud service on your phone and look for the option to upload or sync your music library. Once you’ve found it, just follow the prompts to get started. Depending on how many songs you have, it might take a while for the process to finish, but once it’s done, all of your music should be available on your computer.


There are a few reasons why your music files might not be appearing on your computer after you’ve transferred them from your phone. Here are some troubleshooting tips to help you get your tunes playing again:

-First, check to make sure that you’ve transferred the files to the correct location on your computer. Remember that by default, music files are usually stored in the “Music” or “My Music” folder.
-If you’re using Windows Media Player to sync your music, make sure that the program is set to automatically sync any new files that are added to your phone’s music library. To do this, open Windows Media Player and go to the “Options” menu. From there, select “Devices” and then double-click on your phone’s name. In the window that appears, check the box next to “Automatically sync when this device connects.”
-It’s also possible that the codecs on your computer aren’t compatible with the file format of the music files on your phone. In this case, you’ll need to convert the files to a format that is compatible with your computer’s media player. There are many free file converter programs available online; just do a quick search for one that will work with the file type of your music files.


There are many ways that you can get your music from your phone onto your computer. Some phones have a memory card that can be taken out and put into the computer, while others can be connected to the computer with a USB cord. You can also use Bluetooth to transfer files between the two devices.
