Should I give up on the Roxio software and just rely on the Mass Storage method to transfer media files?
I have repeatedly reinstalled the software but each time I try and use the Roxio Media Manager the CPU Usage on my PC max's out at 100% and dies. Once only it worked - and as posted here by someone else, it did look pretty good - but every other time it just crashes.
Having now read extensively through this site and several others, it does appear there are serious issues with Roxio. So my question to those of you with more BB9000 time under your belts: do I persevere with Roxio or give up and just rely on Mass Storage? It doesn't look pretty but I have moved ringtones, video and photographs across smoothly.
Am I losing out on any compression features in Roxio that I don't get in Mass Storage? If not, then my inclination is going to be to drop Roxio and stick with Mass Storage until they either fix the bugs or I see on this site of a better way.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Hi and welcome to the forums!
I prefer the "drag and drop" method through Windows.
Quick, neat, efficient and without program overhead or restrictions.
As you say it's not "elegant" but it works!
Having said that, have you taken a look at the Media Sync program?
It's more stable then Roxio and has some very nice
features for playlists. I have attached a link to the download and demo.
The program will run as a standalone.
Let me know what you think.

Happy New Year to you as well!
Please take a second and resolve the thread, OK?

Resolved in terms of thanks for your help and confirming my suspicion:- that Roxio is rubbish!
Pretty **bleep** unsatisfactory outcome on the other hand, that one of RIM's flagship models comes with flawed software! Oh well, Bill 1 - RIM 0.
Anyone else reading this thread: I haven't seen a good word about Roxio so far other than it looks good (when you can open it!). They must have chosen it for a reason though, so I guess stick with mass storage/windows method for now and keep an eye on this forum for either a bug fix or an alternative solution.
Great phone though so stick with it. I just ordered a SanDisk 16GB MicroSD card for £36 that will hopefully resolve space issue. All the best.

Resolved. You found that the program was worthless to you, and resolved not to use it.
Other users won't waste time on a dead thread.
New users will search the RESOLVED threads first, just as you did.
That was my meaning.

I exclusively use Windows file manager to sync all files to the berry. Roxio is as lame as itunes and all their ilk. As an album-based listener, I much prefer to use my own folder-based filing system and Mobiola xPlayer for tunes.
