By on March 9, 2015


Today’s mobile phones are entirely different from what a telephone used to be until some time ago. We aren’t talking about the primitive type of telephone sets or facilities, we are talking about the mobile phones from where the industry started to take great leaps ahead, thanks to the rapidly advancing communication technology. Now, apart from being a telephone with very powerful feature, today’s phone is a voice recorder / player, video recorder and player, full functioning camera, net browsing facility, music player, picture and video album, and much more. It has completely changed the concept of a telephone handset.

With such an advanced gadget in hand you want, and should avail the full potential of the features packed in your handset. You may be among the ones who love music, want to play or record videos, take pictures and want to keep them handy, then today’s device is just for you. It comes with many features that let you enjoy with your handset as much as you used to do with a music player, real camera, etc. Once you know how to sync videos, pictures, and music in your Android phone, you are the master then. It is not a big deal to do the task, just few simple steps and then you are up and going.

Get an Android Syncing Program / Tool
First, you have to get an effective syncing program. You can get both paid and free syncing applications (you may try DoubleTwist or Synx, downloadable free of cost from their respective sites). Syncing tool can help you synchronize media folders on a computer with similar media folders on Android.

Mount the Device
Mount your device storage to a computer before starting the syncing application. By using the USB cable, connect your Android tablet or phone to the computer, drag the notification bar down to reveal the notification area.

Use Syncing Program
Now with the syncing program, let the program know the drive letter of your Android device. This you can find as “Removable Storage” on the computer’s drives window. Any such program uses Windows media folders by default, but if you want to use another folder, you should manually make the program select that.

Select the media files, videos, music or pictures that you want to sync, and then use the syncing option of the program to continue the task of synchronization.

By availing the available editing functions, you can easily copy files back and forth, between the computer and your Android phone.

Finally, don’t forget to properly disconnect your Android device before unplugging it.

Since each syncing program may differ in navigation, you have to follow the guidelines specific to that application by keeping in mind the basic hints mentioned above. For a PC user, this isn’t a big deal, and everything can be done very easily.

If you use much the syncing feature, try to find an application with advance features. This could make your life easy. Paid versions normally come with more advance features but if you have work that doesn’t need so advance features, better opt for a free one.
