How Do I Download Music From a Computer to an SD Card?

by Michael Black

A secured digital (SD) card can hold a great deal of information, including music files. The memory size varies from card to card, and is written on the unit. Any SD card over 1 GB can hold a significant amount of music. Downloading music from your computer to this card is no different than downloading music onto a flash drive.

1

Insert your SD card into the SD slot on your computer. Click "Open folder to view files" from the pop-up window that appears, or click the computer tab in the start menu and choose the SD card from the list of drives. This will open a window into which you can drag your music.

2

Open whatever folder your music is stored in. Often your music will be stored in a folder simply titled "Music."

3

Right-click the track or album you want to copy. Choose "Copy" from the menu.

4

Right-click inside the SD card window and choose the "Paste" option. The music will then be pasted onto your SD card. Wait until the process is complete before moving on.

Warning

  • Do not yank on an SD card to remove it from a computer, which can damage it.
