Always been an Apple fan but recently acquired an LG L5 as I like the open Android format. However I'm having trouble with the SD card that Androids guys seem to love.

How do I transfer music either from my computer, or phone, onto the SD card? Doesn't seem straight forward like I thought (hoped) it was.

Create a folder called "music" and copy stuff across.

If your phone supports USB mass storage, then it should just mount as a drive on your mac or PC. And check to see if USB Debugging is enabled or not in settings.

If your on a mac though, and your phone uses MHL for transfer, then you'll need to download Android File Transfer.

Install "ES File Explorer" 

It's a free app. 

It sees: 

- FTP
- LAN (Windows shares) 
- Net (dropbox, Google Drive and many more) 
- Bluetooth FTP 
- local files on any local storage (SD and ExternalSD) 

You can copy from any to any. For example, you might want to copy files from a Windows share to your Dropbox account. They pass through your phone on the way.

For sync-ing iTunes with your Android phone, get "iSyncr". If you want to do it over Wifi, also get "iSyncr Wifi". I have both and they work great. Once the music file is synced to your android phone you can copy to anything and play it anywhere.
