[ MUSIC ] ^M00:00:08 >> [Brian Tong:] Palm Pre owners had the luxury of syncing their phones to their iTunes collection until Apple recently released an update to block them from doing that. I'm Brian Tong with CNET.com, and I'll show you how to sync your Pre and other devices to gain access to your iTunes content. So first off let's check out an application called doubleTwist. It's free, and it works for both PC and Mac. You want to go to the website at doubleTwist.com to download the software. Create an account with them. It's really simple, but once you've done that, you'll have the ability to connect a variety of devices like the Palm Pre, other popular cell phones, MP3 players, and even the Sony PSP, and then move your media onto them. So what we'll do is let's launch the app, and you'll see it shows off your music, movies, and photo collection stored in iTunes and also on your computer. Then we'll connect our Pre; it will show up in the device column, and from there all you have to do is just drag and drop the content you want from your computer onto the Pre. It also supports video and podcast files, and does all the file format conversion for you when you drag it over. So once you're done, eject your device and now you'll have access to the songs and media from your iTunes collection. I'm Brian Tong from CNET.com and that's how you sync third-party devices to your iTunes collection for free. Use it wisely. ^M00:01:17 [ MUSIC ]
