How To Transfer Songs From Usb To iPhone

Share This:

Are you looking to transfer songs from your USB drive to your iPhone? It’s a simple process, but you need to know the right steps in order to do so. Luckily, we’re here to help walk you through the process.

First off, it’s important to note that not all USB drives are compatible with iPhones. You will need a USB drive that is formatted as FAT32 or exFAT in order for your iPhone to recognize it. If your drive is formatted as NTFS, you will have to reformat it in order for your iPhone to recognize it.

Once you’ve confirmed that your USB drive is compatible with your iPhone, the next step is connecting it. To do this, plug one end of the USB cable into your computer and the other end into the port on the USB drive. Then, plug the other end of the USB cable into an available port on your iPhone.

Now that your devices are connected, it’s time to transfer those songs! To do this, open up iTunes on your computer and click “File > Add File To Library” from the menu bar at the top of iTunes. A browser window will pop up – find and select the song files that you want to transfer and click “Open” at the bottom right corner of this browser window. The files will now be copied into iTunes and added to its library.

From here, click “File > Devices > Transfer Purchases from [Device Name]” from the menu bar at the top of iTunes (Device Name being either an iPad or iPod). This will transfer all purchased items from your device over to the iTunes library located on the computer. Lastly, sync these purchased items with your device by clicking “Sync” at the top right corner of the iTunes window while still connected via a USB cable.

Your songs have now been successfully transferred from the USB drive onto your iPhone! Make sure to keep track of where they are stored so that they can be easily accessed when needed – we recommend making a designated folder on both devices so they can be found quickly and easily whenever desired!
