    Look up on Google "Android File Transfer". It is the software used to put files from your computer on the phone.

    When you plug your phone into your computer, you will usually have a few options for how you want the phone to connect. After you have connected your phone using your USB cable, there should be some kind of USB connection icon in your Notification bar. If you swipe down and tap that icon, you should get some options on how to connect. You'll want to select the one that's labeled either "USB Mass Storage" or "Disk Drive," which will allow your computer to see your phone's storage as another drive. If you're not seeing anything on your computer, the phone might be set to "Charge Only."

    Thanks a lot , it works now. One more thing, is there not some sort of itunes for android, that is on my computer? Dragging and dropping music like this seems kinda old-fashioned , and how am i meant to transfer the album artwork?

    I personally find dragging and dropping infinitely more convenient and flexible than iTunes. You just need to keep the same general folder hierarchy to make sure things stay organized in whatever Android media player you're using (i.e., Artist/Album/Song). In order for album art to be displayed properly, you need to make sure it's properly embedded in the music file. There are tons of programs that can do this, but I find that Windows Media Player does a perfectly fine job. You can also do it for music files that are already on your Android device using an app like Album Art Grabber.

    Instead of using iTunes, why not take full advantage of Google Play Music and upload your entire music library to the Google Cloud? Then you can stream it on any Android device or computer browser. If you really want an iTunes replacement, though, consider MediaMonkey.
