Downloading music from Flash Drive to iPhone

Hello:

 

I followed the instructions from the manual.  The songs are showing in "my downloads", but they are not actually on my phone.  They cannot be found through my music player, or by a search of the phone.  Does anyone know what is going on?

 

Thanks.

iOS sandboxes the music app to protect files from illegal file sharing. If you transfer music to your phone from the WFD it will be stored withing the WFD app and accessible through the my downloads only. This is a limitation of iOS.
