you dont need software if all u wanna do is copy mp3's to sd card. Open phone and make sure it has good battery life. Then plug cable in and on screen it should give u option of selecting mass storage. this puts it into sync mode. have fun

If I remember correctly, older versions of Windows sometimes do not have the mass storage drivers. Windows 2000 and XP have them, but I remember going through hell on 98 first edition and had a similar experience on 98se.
