I am having trouble syncing my phone with my computer. My OS is windows Vista and I never received a CD with the PC suite option. My phone will charge on my computer, but I cannot transfer music from my pc to my phone. Any help would be appreciated.

Solved! Go to Solution.
A simple solution for those having trouble with the pc suite.
Go to LG support page, look for your phone in the box supplied.
Close to the bottom of the paege you will see
Connect your phone and click on the little icon
Make sure you have PC Suite working on your Phone
You soon have a dowload for PC SUITE 3
I just bought the LG Gossip and did not find a cd in the box. I use a MAC and wonder if this phone is compatible and whether I will be able to transfer music to the phone and photos from the phone to my Mac.
To transfer files, you need to connect it as mass storage. but you can only do this if the micro sd card is inside. Then it acts like a usb with various folders. if you plug in the usb it just asks u if you want to connect as mass storage or pc suite, pick mass storage. If you don't want to do this, go to menu, settings, connectivity, usb ..., select mass storage. Enjoy!
You should be aware that the information in this thread might not be applicable to your phone. What phone do you have?
Modern android devices do not support USB mass storage anymore. Rather, they use media transfer protocol (MTP) and picture transfer protocol (PTP). For more information, you can refer here.
According LG, the MTP must be selected for the LG PC Suite to recognise the device (see here). Note: Newer phones may require LG Bridge. They provide instructions on how to select a USB mode here. While those instructions are for the Verizon version of the G3, I imagine the process would be similar for the rest of the LG phones.
Its not being scene at all, is this because wmp11 is needed?
When you say it's not being seen at all, do you mean the file has been transfered to the phone but you cannot view the contents? Or the file transfered to computer but cannot view contents?
Hope this helps
The phone is not being scene, when I first got it showed up in the tree.
I could see it as a drive and could transfer freely but not now.
After an unknown update I can no longer see in tree.
Phone offered to load the drivers just to find out they are not reconized.
Professional remedy, get a new computer with a newer OS?
I found out it is because phone software was developed on a superoir system then mine.
Just like most apps are also made on better platform.
So the change happens after the switch between manufacturer and carrier is when it goes down.
PC Suit, lollipop and kitkat did not work for me and there are no smart assed kids in my neighborhood.
I am not a computer engeneer and can not afford one, nor should I have to be doing any of this.
Hi lafiesta and welcome to the forums,
You will need to download the LG PC software at www.lg.com under their software section. For support installing this application and getting it running you would need to contact LG directly at 1-888-542-2623
I hope this helps, if you find out how to transfer those songs feel free to share it with the community.
