    Hello everyone! I was just wondering how I can transfer audio files to an android device. To be more specific a smartphone. I have some audio files in my laptop that I'd really like to transfer to my smartphone (it's a language course).

    I was thinking of transferring that whole course to a USB stick, then using an old cable I used to transfer files from a USB to a tablet, but I have never used this cable to transfer anything to a smartphone, since this cable came with the tablet. Would this be ok for my smartphone?

    I recommend downloading the Spotify app. That way you don't have to download music from your computer to your phone. You can also sync files between the Spotify mac/pc app and the Android app. Google Play also has a pretty good music site now.

    Thanks, but isn't music hat I try to download, I'm trying to get a language course I bought into my mobile, so I can listen to eat while I'm outside. I already have spotify.

    If it is micro USB to USB Female adaptor - Then you should have no problems

    Hopefully there is a decent File Manger on your device...

    The tablet cable should work on smartphone. Normally these days all those cables are standard and am sure it will work. Simply connect to computer and mount USB device just like you do with the tablet and transfer your files.

    There might also be a way to transfer your files via Bluetooth from your computer to your android device. Worth looking at the Google Play store.

    Thank you all for your replies! I have already found a way to transfer some audio files in MP3 format from my laptop to my mobile. Recently ripped from the CD ;) I can now listen to my language audio courses anywhere I go, I can finally study anywhere. I just connected the USB cable that came along with my phone, found the right folder and pasted the files there. Very easy.

    To be honest I had no idea what I was doing, lol. And yes, it was like that. I finally found the right folder to save the files :) This was my first smartphone, so I really had no idea. Learning more each day, thanks a lot. I miss seeing your posts! I hope you are ok.

    Can't you just plug your phone into your computer using a USB cable, open it as a media storage device and then copy and paste the files to the relevant folder? This is what I have always done with all my smartphones. Either that or you could use Bluetooth or Infra-red or upload them to Dropbox then download them onto your device.

    Don't you have a data cable for your android phone? If you have a data cable, it is really easy to transfer files. Alternatively you can also eject your memory card and use a memory card device to save files from your computer to memory card. If you have few files, bluetooth may also come very handy

    Nowadays transferring files from one place to another is way easier than before. Now you can even transfer files wirelessly via some software like - ShareIt, But most of the time I use a USB cable to transfer my file to a smartphone because I just like the comfort of transferring files via USB cable.
