    Itunes Question

    Advertisement



    Saw on the "other" forum board a suggestion to transfer itune songs from a playlist directly onto the Pearl. Has anyone tried this? I thought you had to burn them to a CD first. THanks, Bill

    Bill-don't know if you run Mac or Windows, but in iTunes on mac you can hold ctrl and click on the song it will show you the file, just copy that file into the "usb mass storage device"; I'm sure you can drag and drop a playlist to that folder, but i noticed that some songs that play in itunes give errors on pearl, verify they are readable by pearl before transferring a useless playlist. Honestly, as long as you're in the right folder on the pearl's card, there isn't much you can screw up, just play w/ it and see what ways work of transferring music from itunes to BB...

    If the songs were purchased on iTunes it will not play on the pearl because of the copy protection scheme. Sorry.

    True, but one could burn a cdrw, then just rip the tracks again.

    To update my previous post, doing what I suggested would degrade quality of the song during re-encoding.
