    Save music to your computer

    Go to Google Play Music.
    On the left menu under "Auto playlists," click Free and purchased.
    Click Menu Menu > Download next to a song.
    You can download a purchased song two times.
    Download all purchased songs

    You can use Google Play Music Manager to download all of your purchased music to your computer.

    Open Google Play Music Manager.
    Click Download.
    Click Download purchased music.
    Than add it to Samsung phone. Manually or Kies.

    Good advice above. Here's a guide that also might help--scroll down to the Managing Music section: [GUIDE] Getting Started with Android (2014), Part II: Installing Apps, Managing Media

    i hated the fact android 4.+ doesn't support usb mass storage, & that alot of my music collection is live band music, not found to be purchased in any stores..

    alot of it was converted from cassette to digital format.. & saved..

    the only way i could get whole shows on the nexus 5 was to upload the folders to g-drive, THEN download them from there, to phone.. but each track indiviually

    i es file explorer & gmtp on my debian b0x, i could mount the phone but not pull nor push files in or out of the phone, but i could create an empty folder..

    it was a tedious task, but, i have 4 all nighters on the nexus 5 to date..

    Just curious--you were unable to connect your Nexus 5 via USB (using MTP protocol) to your computer and transfer the music files using drag & drop?

    Linux has full MTP support.... graphical too.... but you have to have some rather new libraries to do it. I tested it as working perfectly under Fedora 20 and KDE after loading libmtp and a few other things that I now forgot. Debian.. well, is pretty conservative.

    I still think MTP is an abomination, however.

    In any case, as I previously suggested: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....sand.airdroid

    i've already tried airdroid & ssh server on android, both didn't work;

    ssh server timed out over & over again

    airdroid never connected to my b0x.

    i'm thinking it's my file manager, i'm using thunar with no D.E. (desktop environment) at all

    just openbox window manager - https://plus.google.com/100566062990...ts/FbEsAr9ixUK

    Attachment 109031

    which BTW were already installed, , gmtp work with minimum support..


    i could do backports from sid unstable, but no no.. when i tried that crap two months ago,

    i ran a system update & left to drive to the store came back 5 mins.
    tried to get in the house..

    ??? Airdroid works on every Android device on every computer on every browser. I have used it dozens of ways with dozens of various devices. It is just a local network to browser connection. It doesn't matter the OS, either. If it doesn't work, then you didn't configure it correctly, or you have a firewall or something preventing other devices on your local network from talking to the browser (which is a bit odd). SSH- might be same issue.

    libmtp-1.1.6-2.fc20.x86_64
    kio_mtp-0.75-4.20131020git2063e75.fc20.x86_64

    That is on a Fedora 20 laptop at work that just "works" with KDE and Dolphin with MTP devices. Strange that it is a git version of kio_mtp. Anyway, since it worked with kio-mtp in Dolphin, I didn't try any other method (non-gui or non-Dolphin file browser). My main desktop at work is Fedora 17, on that I use Thunar with LXDE, and mtp doesn't work graphically (and never tested it any other way).

    At home under Mageia 3 (haven't updated to Mageia 4 yet) it works, but barely and is flaky/unreliable. I think it is the older kio-mtp which makes it unreliable:

    $ rpm -q --all | grep -i mtp
    mtpfs-1.1-2.mga3
    kio-mtp-0-0.git20121204.2.mga3
    libmtp-utils-1.1.6-1.mga3
    lib64mtp-devel-1.1.6-1.mga3
    lib64mtp9-1.1.6-1.mga3

    Hmm. Also a git version

    I agree.

    Seriously people, listen to the advice here and use AirDroid. Don't just say it "does not work". It is simple, brilliantly designed, has a beautiful UI, and works really well.
