Import music to lumia 920 from mac

I recently bought a Nokia Lumia 920 being a Nokia loyalist all the way...Never touched an iPhone or Android for that matter...

For past 1 week I am trying to transfer music to my phone but the Windows Phone app that's needed to do it is buggy and crashes every time. Now, all I am left with is 14 songs in my phone...

Isn't there any other way to do this.

I am sorry to say but I was expecting things to be easier than this...If it doesn't work for few more days I will have no option but to return the phone...

Hi Zenani,

I read somewhere that the 920 and other WP8 devices can connect with Macs and appear in iTunes and it is possible to transfer content that way. As far as I know, the Windows Phone app is the only other way to transfer content on Macs...unless it appears as a removable disk on a Mac on the desktop or file explorer (haven't had that much experience with Macs lately sorry).

Open your windows phone app.  Click on file and select ALLOW ACCESS TO FOLDER.  Then select the folder where you're media files are stored.  It will begin to work right away.

 

The app will not allow you to transfer music from an external source unless you give it permission to.  Once you've done so, the phone will sync like a charm.  ENJOY!
