Syncing iTunes

Hi, I just got my first Blackberry... the Curve 8330... and I have a question(s) about syncing my iTunes.

 

I am a MAC user, I have a 4g card, I have the sync program for mac, and it works fine with the exception of my iTunes libraries.

 

When I sync my playlists... some music comes over... some does not.  For example... I just bought an album off of Amazon (mp3 download) and it automatically gets put into my iTunes library.  I synced my phone, but only 1 song off the entire album made it over.

 

anyone have this problem... and hopefully know how to fix it?

 

Thanks in advance!

Are the songs DRM?  What format are they?  What bitrate?

 

There are several related threads out there on the Net that you could Google for.  They mostly boil down to either manually copying the files to a single music folder on your BB in Mass Storage Device mode, or pulling the battery and then rebooting and letting the media database index refresh itself.

Re: Syncing iTunes

the majority of the music that won't come over is stuff I've purchased from iTunes... 

 

I've tried just dragging the files over... but it doesn't work. 

 

I'll try the battery pull... and see how that goes.

Re: Syncing iTunes

I came across the Media Sync at the Blackberry site the other day. syncs up your iTunes with your BB. There are limitations, so check it to see if it's what you're looking for.

Re: Syncing iTunes

I guess its just a rights management issue.... hmmm

maybe something imbeded in the songs metadata keeps it from being usind on 3rd party devices.
