Thank you for your inquiry.
If you are going to transfer music files from the between the Samsung Strive™ Full Qwerty Cell Phone (SGH-A687) and a computer, you may do mass storage. For you to connect the phone to the computer, it would require you to have the memory card inside the phone and a USB data cable, once you already have the requirements, and then do the following:
If the microSD memory card came from another phone and you could not saved any files on it. Try to format the microSD memory card using your phone so that the phone will recognize the microSD memory card inserted in it.

5. Double click on "Open folder to view files using Windows Explorer".
6. Paste the MP3 file(s) into the phone's Music or Tones folders, located within the Audio folder.
