    Via iTunes.

    Download iTunes > Add music >  Connect your iPhone > Click in iTunes on your iPhone > Tab music > Check music you want > Sync.

    That, and much other useful information can be found here: http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/iphone_user_guide.pdf

     

    There's also a bookmark for the manual in Safari on the phone.

    You transfer stuff from your computer to your iPhone by using iTunes on your computer.

     

    If you don't have the latest version of iTunes on your computer download it from apple.com

     

    Start iTunes on your computer and connect your iPhone. Select your iPhone in iTunes and select Music from the row of tabs that are presented.

     

    Then either select to sync all music or select the playlists you want on the phone. Then click on Apply and Sync.

    The first choice for you is to use iTunes. By default iTunes won't be set to synchronise your music with the iPhone. In iTunes select the iPhone via the menu on the left (if it isn't already) and then click the Music tab at the top of the main window. Then set it to synchronise (either all or just the folders you choose). Then when you click Sync it should copy the music across.

    ::sigh:: It doesn't say "add music" anywhere. That is an instruction to YOU to add music to the iTunes you have just installed. You can buy it from the iTunes store, or, if you already have music on your computer, you can drag it to the iTunes icon on your desktop. All of the steps are instructions to YOU, not buttons on your screen.

    Have you tried this: 

     

     

    Can't recommend as I haven't tried it myself, but found in a Google search.  

     

    Good luck.

    New member posts link to software of unknown quality or safety as their only post. Suspicious? You bet!

    Is there a way to do this without using itunes, which seems a bit complicated. A simple drag and drop would be useful, as with images. Any help or insight appreciated. Thanks.

    What is complicated about iTunes? Connect the phone, iTunes opens, drag and drop music on the iTunes screen to the iPhone in iTunes? There is no option that is easier; a few that are more expensive and more cumbersome. And there are even easier ways within iTunes, including completely automatic for iTunes purchased songs.

    Thanks, Lawrence, for your insight. I can't really install an additional program for every device that I have. This gets a bit inefficient and confusing after a while. File transfer for images works great between iPhone and PC and no other program is required. All I wondered is whether this is possible for music files also.

    Thanks anyway.

    Bob

    There are some 3rd party apps that are specifically for transferring to and from iPhones, but if you are going to install a 3rd party app I would think you would be better off with the official one, which has the added advantage of allowing you to manage your music on your computer, play it on your computer, and manage and update your iPhone from your computer. And there are some functions of the iPhone (such as restoring it after a serious crash) that can only be done with iTunes on a computer.

    Just connect your iPhone to PC and open the iTunes then go to the option showing [add file to library or add folder to library in file option] on your left side of the desktop screen and click on Apply and then Sync.

    "Transfer Music from PC to iPhone" is very simple for me.

     

    Hope that helps.
