    Music and SD card

    Best way to put music on the 7135 is to remove the card and use a reader to enter it in the audio folder. Also bit rate should be 128 or less or it sound terrible

    I agree. BTW, If you don't use 128KBPS it may skip.

    128mb SD card....

    An average MP3 song is 4-5 mb.
    So You could hold about 24-25 songs on a 128mb card.

    I would buy the biggest Sd card your wallet can handle.

    I have a 256mb card (about $70) & I still have 119mb free.
    I have moved all my palm programs that I do not use regularly to the card & I have about 2 hrs of MP3s on it. I also use BB VFS (never had todo a restore yet ).

    I would also get an external SD card reader to load your Mp3s to the SD card. It is VERY painful & slow todo with the kyocera software via a hot sync.

    If you rip it @ 128KBPS you get about 1MB/ minute, so 128MB SD will hold about 2 hours, maybe a little less.

    Yea, I bought a 256MB for about $70 and and 6-in-1 reader, about $25, is the way to go. I tranferred 240MB in a matter of minutes, not hours like the Kyocera utility would have taken.

    OK, I have an SD card and a card reader.......how do I go about doing this now? I know how to add via the MP3 Desktop but I do not know how to add directly to the SD card.

    Create a folder on the SD card named AUDIO then place mp3 files in that folder. The mp3 program will detect the files and create a playlist on its own. (put the folder on the root of the SD card, do not place the folder in the palm or launcher folder) if there is a folder already on the SD card named AUDIO (if you have already transfered files to the card from the mp3 desktop) then just add the desired mp3 files to that folder. again the mp3 player will detect the new files.

    Hope this helps

    Also...if you change songs in your AUDIO directory, delete the playlist.db so it will get recreated.
