    i know there are tons of threads about this problem with windows 8 phones but has anyone successfully put music or mp3s on their phone or microsd card without duplicates for their 521?

    this is REALLY disappointing for windows phones and its obviously a software issue.... otherwise i like windows 8 phones..

    going for Windows 7 OS to Windows 8 521 phone I cant do anything to fix this problem ...

    also there is alot of light bleeding on the bottom right corner of my 521... anyone else have this problem?

    thanks

    I am not sure of anyway to have this not happen. I think the best bet is to use the WP connector to sync music.

    ok it only works if i put the microsd onto a SD card reader and manually drag the songs to the microsd but it will never work if i connect it directly from the phone to PC.... how annoying..

    I have not had any issues or problems moving music or images directly from my pc to my phone's memory card via usb. It works perfectly for me, knock on wood!

    yea it was as bad as that 521 on the left so i returned it and got a new one

    update:

    found a solution to duplicates... DO NOT USE THE NOKIA PHONE SOFTWARE TO SYNC... i just installed the usb drivers that show up when you plug in the phone and then manually dropped the music files on my phone or SD card manually and there where no duplicates...
