Download your favourite music from YouTube to your mobile phone's memory card by using YouTube-to-MP3 online converters to turn the videos into MP3 files that are compatible with your phone. In most cases, you do not need to register or pay to use these online converters, and using them eliminates the need to download or install special software on your computer to perform the video conversion.

Open a Web browser and access the YouTube website.

Type the name of the song you want on your phone in the "Search" field at the top. Review the search results and click on a video link.

Right-click the URL in the browser's address bar and left-click "Copy."

Access a YouTube-to-MP3 converter website such as VidToMP3 or Flvto in your Web browser.

Right-click the indicated field to enter your video URL, then left-click "Paste." Click "Download." Wait for the online converter to process the video, then click the indicated link to download the converted MP3 file to your computer.

Connect your mobile phone to the computer with a USB cable. Click "USB Drive" or "Mass Storage" when prompted.

Click "Start" on your computer, then click "Computer." Double-click your phone's icon to open a folder for the device.

Double-click "Media Card" and open the "Music" folder to view the music files currently stored on your phone.

Open the folder containing the converted MP3 and drag the file to the phone's open folder. Drop the MP3 in the folder to download it to your phone. The file is saved to your phone's memory card.
