Thank you for forwarding the tip from Alessandro, it was spot on. I will not stream music or use iTunes so it was a pleasure to see how easy it was to establish connectivity to the iPhone using foobar2k's FTP utility. Of course I had to download and install the foobar2K software on the iPhone first. Best part is no USB cable needed to establish connectivity. Once selecting the FTP option under Tool --> Utilities, I was quickly given an IP address for the iPhone on my local network. It looked something like (FTP://192.168.1.###) where ### represents the last three digits of the IP address.
It was not as easy (but not hard either) figuring out how to use Windows 10 file explorer to copy file from my music library to the newly connected iPhone. The iPhone needs to be setup as a Network Location or a FTP Drive. I found this link helpful:https://www.thewindowsclub.com/map-an-ftp-drive-windows
. There are many other sites that provide instruction on how to map an FTP location in File Explorer
Once this mapping was done I could navigate to my music library on the PC and easily copy folders (containing music and artwork) to the foobar2k Music folder on the iPhone. The copy was pretty fast, and since foobar2k plays so many different formats I didn't need to convert any files. Thanks to foobar2k for making this so easy to do.
