Default Itunes Help

Please Login to Remove!

So I am new to the bb curve and so far love it. I need some help though. I want to put an 8gb card in and transfer about 1000 songs from itunes to my bb. After reading the faq's and the forum i find that the only work around is to burn the playlist and then retransfer back to itunes. Problem would be that it would take about 100 discs and god knows how many hours. Has anyone found a way to get around this. 3rd party software, anything.
thanks

1000 x 4MB = 4GB

So 1 DVD of 7 CDs

The problem is DRM. This is your best bet.

I am finding the best way for me is to burn to CD and place in Roxio to transfer.

I agree with above or just drag and drop them to the media card once in MP3 format.

Default Winamp

You can use winamp to put your songs onto your computer, then you can transfer those files to the bb. Then you don't need CDs/DVDs

Winamp works with iTunes DRM protected songs?

There is a program called MediaSync that will let you load your iTunes music to your BlackBerry mini SD card. I just got an 8Gb card a few days ago and transferred 987 songs to it using that program. Not sure where you can find it right now, however. It will be available from RIM to download. I found a link on the Crackberry website that let me download it. So, you might start looking there. Or just Google 'MediaSync' and see what you get. I alternate between using the player that comes with OS 4.5 and one called 'Flipside'.
Works great!
