LISMO's "au Music Port", a PC music management software which allows au mobile phones and PC to share music, will enable music download from the "DUOMUSIC STORE [1]", a new music downloading site created especially for PC, back-up EZ "Chaku-Uta Full®" on PC, and transfer files from CD to PC. In addition, "au Music Port" also forwards this music to compatible au handsets.
