So i have my music on a centralized network drive, connected directly to my router. Both iTunes on the Laptop and Windows Media Centre (on the desktop) are using the UNC pathname/windows shares for the location of the music.
All the music plays fines via these programs.
The problem is the Blackberry Desktop Software, it doesn’t see or recognised any of the files that are listed off the computer, and thus I am not able to sync the blackberry with any music, unless I manually connect the blackberry via USB and drag and drop actual files by hand to the Blackberry Mass storage card or dupicate the network music to the local drive (i think)
How can i get the desktop manager to recognise the network shares? it seems to be a lacking feature of the desktop manager.

This should work ...
It didn't. But, it was fixed in one of the more recent versions.
Are you using the latest version?
If so, maybe you have a cache file which is from a previous version? You can delete:
%appdata%\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Media Sync\MediaSyncLibraryiTunes.tle
That will ensure all the info is being loaded directly from iTunes instead of from the cache.

I downloaded media sync today:
for my network Itunes files, I observe the following:
- Itunes music is not found at the begining. I have to toggle to switch to Windows Media Player playlist, and then come back to iTunes playlist.
- Once found, "state" column shows "Network files not allowed" ("Archivos en red no admitidos" in Spanish, the language I am using).
Impossible to mark the box on the global "Music" reproduction list where all the music is, and if I push into "synchronize music" buton, I get a pop-up saying that one box at the left must be selected.
So, it seems it has not been solved?
