    Just got my iphone 5 today and was looking to put some music on there. the problem is, it wont.
    The process ive done: open up itunes and plug in phone. its being recognized. when i click the music files to transfer to phone, i click apply and the progress bar shows up. it gets to step 4, determining files to transfer, then the progress bar stops rotating and itunes freezes altogether. What should i do?? I'm trying to do about 600 songs, but I even tried to do only a few at a time but it would still get stuck at step 4.

    i have all my music on a microSD card atm, is there a way i can use this to transfer??

    Thanks

    the songs have to be loaded into iTunes first, then synched to the iPhone.
