1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Hi...Shelterdog is feeling a little sheltered...not knowing how to get beyond this. iPhoto sometimes recognizes the device and calls it "No Name." iSync recognizes it as Droid and says "paired but not connected". Phone says connection error and can't connect to host. iTunes doesn't even recognize the device at all. Installed the app Bluetooth File transfer still no luck. I understand this can be common, but I'm not a techie so please dumb it down if possible. Thanks.

    :welcome: to DroidForums!

    Unfortunately only Apple products can actually sync with iTunes. If you want to sync music to your Droid, download a program called doubleTwist, it's the best we get :D

    That's not true. For instance, my Motorola razor had no problem with iSync, tethering, or Bluetooth file transfer. I don't know about the particular phone you're using, but as it's a major brand, you should be able to add the device to iSync.
    First, set up the Bluetooth. Just as you would with any other device, set the Mac to "discoverable", and follow the instructions.
    After that, for iSync click "Add Device". You'll figure out the rest.

    Welcome! I have a MBP and I move music and photos with no problems. I mount/connect my Droid to my MBP and open the icon. If I want to move a song or play list from iTunes to my phone I just drag and drop. I use the same process for iPhoto.

    To move from the phone I reverse.

    ...and consider the music file format

    I was having trouble with transferring music files to my Droid X until one of my friends helped me realize that I couldn't use whatever the default encoder is for iTunes. I couldn't get files that I "imported" into iTunes to play, even if I dragged them as Mike describes. Once I changed the Import Settings within iTunes to use the MP3 Encoder, I had better luck.
