I'm not sure if anyone else is having the same problem, but transferring music to this phone has been a pretty crummy experience. I'm moving 20 songs and it'll take half an hour to finish, and occasionally the download will just outright fail after taking 20 min to come to that conclusion. I have simply been dragging music files from my computer's folder to the phone's music folder. Is anyone else having this problem? Is there something I can do to fix this?

It's always possible the USB cable could be faulty. Do you have any other compatible cables you could try?

In the meantime, you could consider transferring the files wirelessly using an app like AirDroid.

Get with the times.

Upload your music to Google and "pin" the music you want on your phone and it will automatically download over WiFi. I did 10gb of music over night while I slept

Strange. I transferred about 500 songs on approximately 30 minutes or less on my PC. Granted I have USB 3.0 and its high end but the difference shouldn't be that huge.

Thanks for the replies. I'm using USB 2.0 so I get that transfer speeds aren't optimum, but the speed is ridiculously slow for even USB 2.0. I transferred a lot of my music via Google Music, which was fast, but the service doesn't upload some of my songs correctly and will outright refuse to upload a significant number of songs. I'll try a new cable when I'm off work later today and see if that makes any difference. I don't think it will fix the fact that some songs won't transfer (even though the same songs didn't have a problem transferring to my Bionic or ipod).

AirDroid seems like a good solution if I just want to get the files over to my phone, so thanks for the solution; however, I do want to solve the problem of transferring through USB.

Plugged my phone in with the stock usb cable and I'm not experiencing any of the problems anymore. The one I used previously must just be ****. Anyway thanks for the help!

Yeah, 3rd party cables should always be viewed with a little suspicion. OEM stuff is always a better bet.
