    ...a simple task like sync itunes library turned to be a nightmare.
    i was close to throw the Z10 against the wall.

    Nothing works like it should be. Just wasting the time.

    I wanted add some songs to my Z10, my whole itunes library is on Z10.
    BB Link should copy the new songs on the Z10, but no, it copied again my whole library on internal memory.
    It took hours to copy 9 GB of Music.

    Now i have two libraries, on SD Card and internal memory. The SD Card is somehow grayed out.

    Restarted the phone, and the SD Card is there again.

    I mean, wtf is going on here. This phone is somehow unpredictable.

    Link is terrible. I love music on my phone also and resorted to jusy dragging and dropping until the software changes.

    Link is horrible..until they fix it, drag and drop to your SD card works perfectly.

    Even when Link worked for me,none of my album art would show on the Z10. Deleted it all and did drag and drop and everything is perfect.

    ok, most of the issues here are you trying to use the easy way out. i never used any of the blackberry software. after the 2 drives pop up on your computer drag and drop. very easy and keeps your blood pressure down. itunes itself is crap.

    Link does suck. Has nothing to do with the Z10, really.

    Do you feel better after the temper tantrum, OP? Has it resulted in everything working tickety boo for you?

    Never use blackberry desktop software or blackberry link.
    Drag and dropped my library onto my MicroSD. Everything works fine.
    As for syncing I do it manually every once in a while.

    mass storage, drag and drop files into the sd card drive. so much easier. I don;'t even have link installed on my windows pc. have over 30 gb of music on my sd card.

    I don't see how people like iTunes, no offense but all it has is features.
    The new UI is garbage, it is unbearably clunky, and playing videos is jittery.
    I guess we all have our own opinions...

    i'm not huge fan of drag'n'drop because from time to time i add some songs to my itunes library, and i can't remember what i added after few days. i need something to keep this in sync.

    maybe some folder sync program would do this.

    ok, if you guys said so, i'm gonna uninstall bb link.

    BlackBerry link is the worst piece of software ever created by blackberry.

    But I never bothered updating it yet...

    I recommend you start using MediaMonkey. It supports syncing to a mass storage device. I'm pretty sure the free version should be sufficient for your needs.

    I find it a lot easier to use than iTunes. The only thing that I think iTunes has that is better is its ability to find song/album data is better.

    I don't understand, I just installed the link on my mac book and it found my iTunes library and synced the music I chose. It was much better than any previously used blackberry software. I wonder if this is because you are using Microsoft?

    Probably the user. I had no issues using link to move my iTunes to my Z10's SD Card. No duplicates on my internal storage either.

    Simply using the drag and drop process from folder to folder seemed hard or...? I've always hated being "tied" to iTunes.

    on a side note. I have never ONCE syned my iphone4 without having a problem. I used teh phone for 30 months and every single time i connected it to itunes there was some sort of problem.

    so, maybe the problem is with itunes.
