Default Putting Media on 8300 using MAC

Please Login to Remove!

I have an 8300 Curve, and I really want to put some media files onto it but, the desktop manager doesn't work with MACs, so how do I get some iTunes songs/video onto it? Would it be possible to take the microSD out and plug it into my computer and then put songs/video on that without using my device?

if you have an SD card in it, it should show up on the desktop when you connect the phone to the computer. Then just drag the files you want onto the card in the desired folder.

You mean that the MAC doesn't magically do this for you? I thought it was so easy

Just bustin' ya balls. You are correct, you should be able to populate media on the card via the computer and then put it in your BlackBerry.

Its Mac (not all caps, thats something else). It is easy, RIM is just notoriously crappy when it comes to supporting OS X.

Be sure to put the card in the phone first so it adds the appropriate folders before you install via your PC or MAC.
I tried to copy music from my MAC and it did not work very well at all, so I did it with my PC and it worked fine, don't know why.
