Tips & Tricks

If you don't need music on your PC, you can immediately record it to the player.

Of course, in this case, the device must be connected to the computer using a cable. You should also change the download path in the browser settings. The algorithm is pretty simple.

Let's consider it using Yandex as an example:

  • open the settings (3 horizontal bars in the upper right corner of the screen);
  • scroll down to the bottom of the list and click "show advanced settings";
  • find the item "downloaded files";
  • in the field that opens, specify a new location for downloading data (click "change" and select the player's disk).

If you have Firefox installed, go to settings and select "files and applications" from the list. By pressing the "Browse" button, select a new path for saving files (it should be reflected in the corresponding field). Working with other browsers also has its own peculiarities, but the general principle should be clear. After changing the download path, you can go to any resource and take the tracks you like. They will immediately go to their destination.

In conclusion, it is worth answering the question of interest to many, how to download music to the player from the phone. There are 2 options.
