Anyone else experiencing this? I assume it is not my 8130, but the program.
In my experience, the Roxio program is buggy and unstable in both 4.2 SP2 and 4.3. I was able to use it to transfer some files in 4.2 SP2, but it hung on me a number of times, the folder tree on the left showing the phone folder structure kept losing entries, etc.
Best is 4.2 SP1...the simple media in that release lacks bells and whistles of the Roxio version, but it just works.
Also, if you're just transferring music, attach your Pearl, allow USB storage mode, and use Windows to copy the files over. No need to use Roxio for stuff like that, and it's a lot faster.
