I can't figure out how to move my media from my computer to the phone. What's the problem?
All I want to do is simply to move my music library, movies, and shows from my computer to my phone.
For context, if it'll help, my computer is a five-year-old-ish Asus laptop running on Window XP. It's a dinosaur, but it's stuck by me through thick and thin. The first time I plugged in the USB cable, it asked me it needed to look up something called the CDC Serial. Then it stuffed that up and, hoping for the best, I thought nothing much of it. Also, it asked for the camera to be opened by one of the given options, which I canceled on. I just wanted to start organizing my songs and watching movies, not play around with the camera. How hard could it be to drag and drop files?
Here I was: http://i.imgur.com/3r8Sw94.png, at some destination called "HTC_PN071 #2" with a, what, camera icon? Weird, but again, I didn't think much of it, especially when I soon spotted those Movies and Music folders! So I dragged an episode of The Inbetweeners to be dropped into the former... but instead of being copied to it as expected, the file just sort of vanished when I released the mouse button there. Before I did, there was that black no-smoking sign over the icon, telling me I couldn't drop it there. But where else could I have dropped it, then?
Earlier, I had already transferred some eBooks from my hard drive to the phone's eBook folder via AirDroid (if only it could handle large file sizes), so I went back to check in on that folder and look here: http://i.imgur.com/Xu8gEUd.png. Being .epub files, should they have that icon, normally attributed to photos? I can't drop anything worth a damn in this place.
Let's try the HTC Sync Manager, I thought, so I headed there: http://i.imgur.com/kvdLue2.png. But installing anything in that folder, from the Setup file both HSMSetup_Global.exe and HTC_Sync_Manager_PC.exe gave me, to IPTInstaller.msi, only brought up this message: http://i.imgur.com/7RX0Sw5.png. Clicking on both HTCDriverInstaller.exe and HTCDriverUninstaller.exe, by the way, did absolutely nothing. Nothing there seemed to work.
Then I Googled for how to fix the above problem, and that led me to this guy: How to Fix "The Windows Installer service could not be accessed" Error. But I don't want to screw up my computer, at least not any further than it's already been, so I haven't done anything yet, not until I know from more capable people just exactly what's going on, and how I can fully take advantage of my 64-GB internal memory. I've tried changing the USB port, making sure the phone screen wasn't locked, and restarting my computer. Nada.
Can someone please help me out?
