Synchronize your music from your computer to your device

You can synchronize specific iTunes playlists and Windows Media® Player playlists to your device or a random selection of your songs that are not in a playlist. The number of your songs and playlists that you can synchronize depends on the amount of storage on your media card or device that is available for storing music files.

Before you begin: To perform this task, in your BlackBerry® device options, mass storage mode must be turned on. For more information about mass storage mode, click Help on your device.
  1. Connect your device to your computer.
  2. In the BlackBerry® Desktop Software, click Music.
  3. Do any of the following:
    • To synchronize specific playlist or synchronize songs by artists or genre, select the check box beside one or more playlists, artists, or genres.
    • To synchronize your complete music library, select the All music check box.
    • If you do not have enough storage space on your device for your complete music library, but you want to synchronize specific playlists as well as a random selection of your songs, select the check box beside one or more playlists. Click Random Music.
  4. Click Sync.
To view your playlists on your device, click the Media icon or Music icon. Your songs that are not in a playlist appear together in the Music playlist or in their Artist, Album, or Genre categories.
