    Amb,

    The Motorola program is not terribly robust in the "settings" department, but I just looked and found where you can toggle the music settings to not link to anything, allowing you to manually add them. Or it appears that you can specify WMP and import them.

    The photo and movie seetings are very sparse, as to controls. Intersting thing as I was checking for you, the program found my photos automatically in a folder I have set up on one of my partitions, but did not continue to scan my job folders where I have lots of imagery associated with my work. Which, by the way I would NOT want to be added to this program's associations. I just tried to delete a picture from within the program, and the prompt was to remove to the recycle bin. Did not confirm, but that sounds like complete removal from the computer, not just unlinking, or what you typically get from photo/music software, the option to unassociate but not remove from disk.

    In any case, the program is not very robust in the greater scheme, but as you stated, may be helpful for specific tasks. I would just recommend going slow at first, to make sure that you do not find yourself "associated" with more than you want.

    Using Vista -when try to connect my phone is detected, but when I click on connect I am told to make sure the SD card is mounted properly. I've unmounted it and remounted it and keep getting the same error. Any help would be appreciated

    I use dvd catalyst 3 and just drag and drop for movies and vids, for itunes library, I use itunes agent which puts the droid on your itunes then you just drag and drop or add stuff to through "add to" then right click on the Itunes agent icon in the tray and there is an option to synce just like you would with an Ipod.

    has worked great for me.

    Also just as a note, if you have DRM music in your library it will not show up on the droid, you have to upgrade your titles to plus for them to work.

    I use Handbrake for all video conversions. It is free and does not get your videos out of sync if you FF or RW them on the Droid. The others I have tried do tend to get out of sync including dvd catalyst.
    As for the other poster...I have never heard of having to unmount and remount you sd card. You are plugging in the Droid to your computer and then going to the notification bar on the Droid and selecting "Mount"? This should work without issue.
    Overall the easiest way to move files to and from your droid is just drag and drop like you would a flash drive. Itunes files being the exception as are DRM files which you will need to work around....

    Tig,

    Thanks for the tip. I had tried a few times to get this thing to load and it would not. Using your tip it loaded immediately. :)

    DD1912, no problem

    Nelson, the demo version does not have a droid option but I beleive he said to use the iphone setting as they are close. His paid version which is only $10 has settings for the droid SD and HD. Easy as pie, put in DVD and it reads the disc and then hit go and it will convert it and put into videos folder, from there just drag and drop to droid.
    I have only had one sound/video sync problem out of the 15 I have done in the last couple days.

    Go to the audio/video section and there will be a ton of info on this as the delveloper of catalyst is a member here and helps trouble shoot. I tried handbrake, and while it is free it is a little more harder to use if you are not to tech or computer savvy whereas catalyst is super easy even for a knuckle head like me!
