- Launch Android File Transfer from the Finder or your Dock.
- Open a Finder window and open the folder in which your music is contained.
- Click either Phone or SD Card, depending on where you'd like to transfer your music to. If your phone doesn't have a microSD slot, then you won't have to SD Card option.
Drag and drop individual music files or entire folders onto Android File Transfer.
That's all there is to it, but be careful: If you try to transfer too many files at once, Android File Transfer will likely just crap out and stop party-way through. Keep your transfers to batches under 1GB.
