Very slow when transferring music to Android device


Basically I like adding music files and albums to devices from my Winamp Media Library. I don't fully sync, I simply drag and drop files in.

I've done so with devices such as iPods, Sansa Clip + and Creative Zen MP3's players, no problem and very efficient.

But when I try and do so with my Samsung Galaxy SII it takes an age, both when transferring to the phone and to the 32gb memory card in the phone.

Basically I drag and drop the album, and Winamp freezes for between one and two minutes - sometimes more. Then Winamp either crashes or (more frequently) starts transferring the files.

It's not a big deal in fairness - but I just find transferring from my music library the easiest way and preferred if it could work quicker. I have an ancient machine which is generally a little slow, but this situation is above and beyond the usual.

Here's the details:
- Winamp v5.623
- Windows XP, SP3
- Samsung R40 Laptop
- Intel Core 2 T5500 @1.66ghz
- 896MB of RAM

If any more info is needed, just let me know. Would appreciate any help - even if it's just to say 'Winamp doesn't work well with Samsung GII', in which case I would just use a different method of transfer.

BUG #1 = Winamp skips short tracks
Wish #1 = Multiple Column Sorting
Wish #2 = Add TCMP/Compilation editing
