How to Save MP3s to an Apple device From an Email
The iPhone/iPad lets you open and listen to MP3s sent as email attachments, but not to save songs directly to the music app on your iPhone/iPad. To move songs that were sent as email attachments onto your iPhone/iPad, you must first download them on your computer and then sync via iTunes.
Step 1 – Open your email account using the Windows or Mac computer that houses your iTunes library.
Step 2 – Open the email to which the MP3 file is attached.
Step 3 – Download the MP3 file to your computer hard disk. Take note of the file name and folder location on the hard disk.
Step 4 – Open iTunes.
Step 5 – Click “Add File to Library” if you are on a Windows machine, or “Add to Library” if you are on a Mac.
Step 6 – Search for and select the MP3 file you downloaded in Step 3, then click “Open.”
Step 7 – Connect your iPhone/iPad to your computer via a Universal Serial Bus (USB) dock connector and synchronize.
Transfer files to Android smartphones and tablet from Windows
Step 1 – For starters you’ll need to plug your smartphone or tablet into the laptop or PC which has the files you want to transfer. Do this with the cable supplied with your device, most likely a microUSB cable.
Step 2 – Once you’ve plugged in your device, you should get a popup menu of options. Here you can choose different ways of transferring content, most of which are perfectly good options for Android smartphones and tablets.
Note. If you’re phone doesn’t show up properly, go to the settings and select ‘Connect as media device (MTP) or similar. This is normally accessible from the drop down notification menu if the device is plugged into a PC.
Step 3 – Depending on which option you’ve chosen, either follow the instructions to import or sync your device with your PC or drag and drop the files from your machine onto your Android smartphone or tablet with the Windows File Explorer.
Android devices have specified folders for music, movies and pictures so it’s advisable to place the content in the corresponding folder.
