Hello all

Long time reader and admirer from afar of the knowledge floating about here, so signed up to learn more. I'm 22.

I work in a Telecom retail store, so I'm one of the poor plebs you guys get to verbally assault when sh*t hits the fan. Cool job though, get to play with cool toys and have a cheap mobile!

My main interests are cars, of the 70s/80s Japanese discrepency, but I'm not into big wheels and loud exhausts. I'm all about the deep dish JDM rims, stretched tyres and super lowness associated with the Garuchan style.
Also dig music, predominantly hardcore-esque like He is Legend, Thrice, Alexisonfire etc etc, and have a strong interest in technology, having worked in electronic stores for the last 3 years.

I struggle with Internet-based tech, so expect a few questions around that

Based in Wellington, just moved from Hamilton, makes a great change

Cool!

Hi, knew you must be an orb person when I saw the name.  HO HO!  Hey, I work in an orb shop too, but I am a bit older than you...  Have had my own mobile phone shop in Australia, and yes, they do the dirty on their dealers, too!  Do you know how to get music on and off the Sanyo 8400?  Plus listen to it! These older men really drive me mad, reckon they have put music on, but there is never anything on their micro SD cards...  I have a Sanyo M1.  Did have a 6600...  Crawled into work feeling worn out after three weeks of being crook and got rewarded with the phone.  Had to hand in the 6600 though!  So, I am a clued up orb chick!

First of all welcome to the OP.

Wow mobygeek, its hard work reading your post (I say that politely) Smile.

For 8400, you need to create folders, and place the music under the MEDIA folder, using the USB data cable.

And do not use windows media player to synchronise it!
If I have to fix another one when the user plumbs up the "Music folder with WMA files and wonder why it does not play" I'll scream..... into the phone voice recorder literally!!

The M1 is a nice phone and my current fave..

Welcome to the "Clan" PM if curious what I do..

[MUSIC] must only hold KOZ files from the music store.
[MEDIA] is where you place all your audio and video bits.


There-on the customers won't have issues.


I love my mobile(s) More like (Mobilesssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss literally)

Plug 8400 into computer via data cable

Choose folder you want music in, ie with mine I have a micro sd, so micro sd, media, then I just dragall my files in from my music. Then go to media player top right in menu

Best way from a fresh install of memory or card.
in the phone itself.. take a picture [DCIM], start media player and create folder [MEDIA] and start music player [MUSIC] and then make a recording [VOICE]
Then the folders are all nicely pre-created for you to plug in USB and select MASS-STORAGE.
 (for passing on to your customers.)
