I tried using Destop Manager with my BB connected via USB and that worked. Windows was able to recognize that as a USB drive. so I just used DM to transfer over some music. I have no idea why the card won't read when its in my USB card reader but works when its in the BB?? All the best I suppose since the card is in a poor location for repeated swapping anyways
And now when I plug my BB directly into my MAC, it recognizes it as a USB drive. Which is what I wanted all along since that's where my music is! Thanks so much.
Up for fielding another question? I only transferred 2 albums over to the BB just to test it out and see how it played. Well, both albums show up correctly under the music folder under my media card. Funny thing though... The 2 albums are entirely complete and functional under their respective album names on my BB, but a few songs from each of the 2 albums also show up under "unknown album". The songs under "unknown album" read 0:00 length and nothing happens when i try to play them. I tried Menu-> Delete, but it didn't do anything. Both albums were ripped from CD, under the same m4a format, and converted (when prompted by Roxio) upon transfer via DM. So there shouldn't be any difference in the audio files as far as tags, type, etc. Any thoughts as to why, or more importantly, how to get ride of them?
EDIT: In case I sounded contradictory about wanting to be able to transfer music from my Mac and then saying I sucessfully used DM (which doesn't work for Mac) to transfer music from a PC... I first moved some music to a separate USB and then used the separate USB as my source of transfer w/ DM. Thanks.
