Does anyone know exactly how to put your own music onto the sanyo 8400 in particular?  I had a guy in the shop I work in who reckoned he had put heaps of his own music into his phone and couldn't find any of it ever again.  His Micro SD card definitely said it was empty!  The shortcuts you get with the phone tell you how to download music from the telecom music store (at $1.99 each!) but not your own files.  the phone has mass storage, comes with it's own USB cable and micro SD card of small memory, and I managed to get photos from the camera onto the card today, but the music thing bamboozles me.  My sanyo M1 is very easy, but it doesn't have a card, no need, it's got 1G of memory...  I get the feeling one needs to create a folder or something, but I am a bit hazy on it...I haven't even worked out the media player/chanel listing/media listing thingy yet.  I need to know how to set up the whole show and I need to be able to explain it to non-geeks!  Help!

As in previous post for the Sanyo's you need to create a folder "MEDIA" ad place your MP3 files in there. For the Samsung you need to connect it to the PC, then go-to Menu / Tools / User Memory / Connect to PC, and copy the files to the correct folder (I think it may be media, but it will be apparent when you get there...

Best way from a fresh install of memory or card.

In the phone itself insert memorycard
Take a picture [DCIM]
Start media player and create folder [MEDIA]
Start music store [MUSIC]
And then make a recording [VOICE]

Sanyo 8400, 5600, 9000, M1
Plug in supplied datacable and select "MASS STORAGE" and drag audio files to MEDIA folder not MUSIC....

Samsung 531
Goto tools, user memory, connect PC and plug in the cable.

Samsung a920
You need to remove the microSD card and use a cardreader. Maybe there is an easier option?
