Re: Adding music to my Blackberry Playbook

As someone mentioned that your iTunes library has a lot of DRM attached to it, you might want to try downloading and installing Desktop Manager, associating the iTunes library with the Media Sync, and attempt to transfer your selections.  If, as we suspect, your library has DRM'ed items, Media Sync will show these items as unsupported.  

 

Good luck.  Once transferred, the PlayBook makes a great player.

I have no problem playing AAC files on my PlayBook, unless they are protected by Apple's DRMs.

in which case burning from itunes to CD and ripping back into windows media player should work around it, butwould be a very naughty thing to do.

Re: Adding music to my Blackberry Playbook

unless you are forced to use an iPhone or an iPod, it is a good idea to stay away from iTunes.

...or unless you have a Mac.  

 

I now use itunes full time, fully committed in its database, can update in batch mode almost all of my collection's artwork from Apple's Gracenote database, even for ripped music from years ago. I and can edit the metadata for a whole album at once.

 

Sync'ing to an itunes playlist called "Playbook" makes it a simple job to transfer.  

 

Forced to use ipod?? There is simply no other sensible portable player with 160GB of space other than Ipod Classic.  Get 'em while they still make 'em. I'll give it 6 months. 

 

...from one of Apple's Fanbois!  (but very satisfied with Playbook).

I am a Cowon fan, sorry Smiley Happy
(their devices back 5 years ago still match today's iPod devices)
