I've recently purchased the LG800g from Tracfone, and I like the phone very much. I wanted to transfer my music onto it, and since my computer does not have BlueTooth capabilities, I need to use a USB cable to transfer data to my phone. So, I went on Amazon.com and purchased a USB data cable manufactured by LG themselves, in order to use it with my phone. The USB data cable arrived today and I plugged it into my phone and then into my computer. To my dismay, when I plugged the cable into my computer's USB port, the only thing that happened was that the phone began charging. No dialogue window came up on my PC informing me that it had connected to a storage device, and Windows Explorer did not recognize my phone as a plugged-in device; therefore, I am unable to access the phone from my PC in order to transfer my music files to it. I am quite sure that this USB cable is a data cable and not just a charging cable. For reference, here is the product that I ordered on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002FTV5UI
What might be the problem? Do I need to have a memory SD card in my phone in order for files to be transferable to it? Do I need to install software drivers on my PC in order for my phone to be recognized by my PC? Please let me know if there is anything that I can do to access my phone from my PC to transfer files to it.
