Nokia Lumia 510 - How can I transfer my music to my Lumia (Windows Phone 7)?

You need to have the appropriate software and the Zune PC app installed on your PC. To download and install the latest version on your PC, or to learn more about Zune, go to support.xbox.com/zune/software/download. You may need to restart your computer, and you may need to install additional software.

Depending on what you need to install, and how much data you are transferring, this may take a while.

Some music files can be protected by digital rights management (DRM). These songs do not appear in your Zune music collection and you can't sync them on your Lumia.

These instructions may not apply to all phone models and manufacturers.
