Default Playlists or Folders for BB Media Player

Please Login to Remove!

How do you get separate play lists set up on your handheld, like you can with an ipod?. It seems that all I can do in the desktop manager for the handheld is set up folders which I did. The folders are not showing on the media card.

Any suggestions?

I ended up using the audio tag function in media manager and categorized through the album title. That seems to be the workaround

You have to create your playlists in something other than the BB software. You can use Windows Media Player or WinAmp and create .WMU files that work fine.

Does Roxio recognize the AAC format that us iTunes users use?

Even if it does the only AAC files you would be able to load are the DRM free ones... the others would not be playable by the blackberry.

True - but I have ripped some 200 CDs to AAC format using iTunes. And if I do purchase DRM files from iTunes store, I save to CD and rip back to the iTunes library to keep it DRM free.

Well, .wma would work if I were using WMP11, but I am using iTunes to organize and rid my library. WMP11 can't read the AAC files I've created and use.

Okay, because I had been burning my itunes to cds and converting to wma. The quality is perfect and I noticed the files were more compressed than some of the other formats which leaves more room on the SD card.

Our household is moving to the Apple supported area and way from Microsoft's WMA. Our music libraries will be AAC. I will not at this point convert to WMA. The Curve is caught in the middle because it plays AAC files, but apparently there is no tool to help with playlists for the curve. If only someone can figure out how to sync a BB using iTunes -- problem solved.
