    When I connect my gs3 to my windows pc it recognizes it but the usual method I use to put music from the laptop to my phone isn't working with the gs3. When I try to drag and drop the album into music it doesn't work, when I try to copy it from the music player to sd or phone memory it still doesn't work.

    Any suggestions?

    Do you have an SD card installed? Does your computer have a card reader. Again if so, remove the memory card from the phone and install it in the computers card reader. Create a music folder on your memory card and copy your music to it. Remove the card from your computer and put it back in your phone. I put 15gb of music on my phone this way and to works without a hitch. I find it easier to move files from my computer to the phone this way. Especially if you have a lot of files to move.

    Use Kies for Windows or for Mac to transfer the files.

    A few questions about Kies:
    Is it good for transferring large amounts of music at once? I want to put about 10gb of music on my S3.

    Will it save it to the sd card or the phone memory?

    Also if I want to add a single album, do I have to sync everything again, or can I add just the one item?

    I keep each music album in a separate folder on my PC. To move them to the S3 I simply used a USB cable, let the PC Win7 install the drivers, then dragged each folder to my ext-sd card (if you only have the preinstalled card that works too). The Sammy music player found them all and played them perfectly.
    The instructions are provided on the phone when you first open the stock music player app.

    Don't take the card out of the phone. You'll be asking for trouble. Cards get fried that way.
    Instead, use ES file explorer. Great program

    Just use Google music! You can upload any songs to it. As long as it has it on Google Music you can listen to it from the cloud. (Desktop or mobile device!) I find Kies to be a pain in the ***. plus if you go with the Google Music your not stuck finding a new answer when or if you no longer own a Samsung device.

    Yes, Kies is a mess.
    Use ES file explorer. It will read your network files.
    It really is a nice program.

    Thank you for introducing me to Google Music! Another amazing Google product that is so easy to use! I'm in the middle of uploading everything from iTunes and I'm still able to listen on my phone while uploading!

    Ya reckon he/she'd be asking for help if it worked? I can't drag and drop either so keep your useless comments to yourself.
    We shouldn't have to read through non-useful replies.

    Plug phone in computer > Click start > Click My Computer > Double click SAMSUNG-S3 at the bottom.
    Now the music is in the music folder, so you can double click that and then copy and paste the music.
    Hope this helps to transfer music from PC to Android.
