Hi - can anyone help?  I tried to download my iTunes library from my Mac to my new Fascinate, but iTunes does not recognize the device.  Am I missing a step?  Do I need to convert the library to MP3?  How do I do this?  Which app do I use?

There are currently no applications that Verizon Wireless offer that allow you to sync itunes audio files with Android phones directly. Third party apps are used at your own risk and are not supported.

First we want to discuss the music formats of the Samsung Fascinate. The Samsung Fascinate supports the following Audio/Music Formats: Enhanced AAC+ , MP3, unprotected AAC, and unprotected AAC+ formats. Usually it is easier to convert the itunes M4A or M4P to MP3 audio files, this allows you to transfer them easier. Be advised that unprotected files are usually M4A and M4P files are protected.

 

To convert the Audio files to MP3 files, go to into the Preferences Panel of iTunes. Click on the orange "Importing" selection and then select an MP3 Encoder for importing. Alter the settings to the settings you want. (itunes version may differ slightly) Then, click Ok and then go back to the main window of iTunes. Select all files you want to convert to MP3 and click on "Advanced" and "Convert Selection to MP3". M4P is DRM protected, please be in accordance with the law when converting these files. Once you have the files converted and put it in the music folder that you want on your PC or MAC. Then you can transfer them to the phone.

Step 1. Plug a USB cable into your Samsung Fascinate and connect it to a USB on your PC's or MAC USB Port.

Step 2. Once you attach the Samsung Fascinate to the PC or MAC with a USB cable. Your PC or MAC recognizes the connection and displays USB logo connected in the Annunciator Line and Notifications Panel.

Step 3. Pull down the Notification Panel, then touch USB connected.

Step 4. At the prompt, touch Mount to connect your to the PC or MAC to copy files.

Step 5. At this point you can go into your PC My Computer or MAC and add the audio files to the folder you have your music in. This folder my vary depending on the phone. Once you have transferred the audio files, you can Un-mount the device, and disconnect the cable then you should be able to access the music on the Samsung Fascinate.

Or iSyncr and iSyncr WiFi, so you can sync your music, video's, and photo's without connecting it to your computer (PCor MAC).
