680 and your computer frequently to keep your information up-to-date (and
backed up) in both locations.
The information from the following applications is updated by default each
time you sync:
Tip

CD that came with
your Treo 680 even

Outlook or with
another third-party

Music_Audio folder
in the root directory
of the card, and
store your MP3 files

Transfer MP3 files from your computer
If your MP3 files are already on your computer’s hard drive, you just need
to transfer them to your Treo 680 to listen to them with Pocket Tunes.
If an expansion card is inserted into the Treo 680, Windows Media Player
copies the MP3 files to the expansion card. If you don’t have an expansion
card inserted, the MP3 files are copied to your Treo.
Important: You must synchronize your Treo 680 with your computer at least
once before you can transfer MP3 files from your computer.
Before You Begin: On a Mac, you need an expansion card (sold separately)
to listen to music on your Treo. You cannot transfer MP3 files from your
Mac directly to your Treo.
1. Connect your Treo to your computer with the USB sync cable.
2. On your Treo 680, press Applications
and select pTunes
.

(card). Click OK. Synchronize your Treo with your computer. Be patient;
