If you just want to sync up all your Media files on your PC with your blackberry (Music, Ringtones, Photos, Videos, Documents, Voicenotes) I found a free app from Microsoft called SyncToy v2.0 that works perfectly for me. It is simple to use and easy to set up.
Everytime I plug my Blackberry into my computer via USB cable, any files that are new in the blackberry are copied to the computer and any files that are new on my computer are copied to my blackberry, all automatically. You can set up specifically what folders to sync up both on the PC and blackberry.
You need to enable Mass Storage Mode on your blackberry for this process to work.
The easiest way to set this up would be to plug your blackberry into your USB cable. From Windows Explorer, open up the blackberry folder on the blackberry. My Curve has a "Blackberry" folder on it with all the sub-folders for the media in there. Drag it onto your PC any where you want. That will make an exact copy of that folder on your PC so it matches the blackberry folders exactly. I dragged it into the C: drive creating a folder C:\BlackBerry (all sub folders will be copied also).
When you set up SyncToy, you tell it to sync those folders on your PC and blackberry (your blackberry has to be pluged in when you do this).
When I want to add, say, music to my blackberry, I just drag those mp3's to the C:\Blackberry\music folder on my PC. Then, when my blackberry is plugged in to the computer with the USB cable, it copies those newly added music files to the blackberry automatically.
Very neat and easy app that works great for me!
You can google SyncToy v2.0 from Microsoft and download it free from there.
