I am quite fond of Mobiola Video Studio simply because it works and is cheap. You can download a free copy and instantly make the video file you want (from any AVi, MPEG etc) which, as you say, you can then copy to your BB using Explorer. Mobiola lets you set the exact model of BB you have, and then knows the right format automatically.
By contrast, Roxio does not have a f***ing clue. In addition to very poorly-designed and tested software, they simply do not seem to understand the video formats involved. There are posts everywhere with complaints about "converted" Roxio videos that don't play at all, are blank, have no sound, or have sound but no picture. You would do better with software written by the Three Stooges. Nyuk nyuk nyuk.
Mobiola also has more expensive offerings that do audio etc etc, and I'm sure these work too.

If I understand correctly, Roxio is useful only to convert videos into an optimized format for Blackberry. For the rest, there is :
- Windows Explorer and it's good old drag'n'drop
- Media Sync for iTunes music
Can someone give me an URL of an optimized video for Blackberry ? I'm sure I can find a free tool to do the conversion. And post a tutorial. That done, drag'n'drop will be enough.
I have posted a turorial here :

Just bought a 9000 and added an 8G card and Roxio is a SLUG! Running XP Media Center Edition with gobs of processing speed and ram and it hangs up EVERY TIME and have to stop it through Task Manager. Roxio is packed with the 4.6 Desktop Software (latest) version.
The program works fine on the Blackberry but not at all on the computer and the computer can't 'see' the Blackberry without it.
So I remove the Micro-SD card, put it in a reader, copy the media I want, reload the card in the Blackberry and it all seems to work fine - but what a pain - at least the memory slot is on the outside!

You guys are most likely going to hate me for this but you're overcomplicating what is an easy job.
This is for Windows:- Plug the phone in and give it time to be found which will normally bring up the AutoPlay system. Go to what should be the last option "Open folder to view files" and go through until you find the file you are looking for i.e. "music" then open the computer's music file and you can "drag and drop" across. If you don't get the AutoPlay click Start-Computer-and you should find "Blackberry". Double click this and follow through the same as the AutoPlay and you've got it. No need to pull the card although this can possibly be faster.
