When your phone shows as a removable disk just drag and drop the music right from itunes or from your itunes library folder files to the desktop or a folder and move directly into the "music folder" on the phone.
You can also transfer photos and videos this way. Just make sure videos.
By the way, i downloaded the isync plugin from mroach.com and it worked perfectly. Thanks for the tip.Macbook, Mac OS X (10.5), Leopard Rocks!!

you can and music through bluetooth, its slow but it works. Open up the bluetooth on your mac, select the phone and choose "browse device." From there you can "send" files to your phone. Hope that works. Good Luck.MacBook, Mac OS X (10.4.10)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 20, 2007 3:36 PM (in response to Garrett Fowler)I can't even get my computer to read the phone. I hook it up and nothing happens. I downloaded that phone plug-in from the macroach.com site and it just went to my desktop and I can't get it to do anything. Any suggestions?iMac, Mac OS X (10.4.10)

Currently Being ModeratedJan 9, 2008 1:41 PM (in response to Garrett Fowler)Hi--thought I'd come along and add what I've noticed to the discussion. Here's what I've observed with my macbook and my w580i:
If you have a w580i and DON'T have a memory card, the phone doesn't show up when you connect the usb cable to a mac. You can still access it via bluetooth, though.
If you DO have a memory card, the memory card (but not the phone's internal memory) WILL show up as a removable drive when you connect the USB cable. No more slooooow bluetooth music transferring!
Hope this is helpful.
