No problem for me with Slacker and BES. The only gotcha was getting the cache mode to work since my company encrypts data written to my media card.

To update cached stations, Slacker downloads two files to your media card - slacker.synclauncher.exe and autorun.inf

In order to get these to run properly I had to transfer the files using the OLD mediamanager program (original Blackberry version back with Desktop 4.2SP1, not the Roxio version) to my computer, rename them, then transfer them back using Mass Storage Mode.

Now when I attach via Mass Storage Mode, one of the options when the card is recognized is to "Sync Slacker Stations".

Unfortunately I'll have to go through this process anytime I change or add a station I want to cache, but once stations are all set, this looks like I can sync up just fine!
