    Angry Transferring music from iTunes to Xoom

    Anyone know how to transfer iTunes music to the Xoom? I have read on other boards that it is as simple as copying from the iTunes folder to the Music folder on the Xoom, but when I do that it says '.m4a not compatible.'

    Can someone explain how to transfer the music files without converting to .mp3 and losing all the artist/album data?

    Just copy them. Apple audio formats are accepted just not the ones with DRM (.m4p extension)

    Nope. .m4a formats are not supported. When I copy from my iTunes folder to the music folder on the Xoom I get this message:

    "The songname.m4a file type is not supported on this device."

    If you spend $5 on AirSync (via Doubletwist) You can copy full Playlists at a time though Wireless

    Will that allow me to use the native music UI? Or will I have to use the AirSync player (if there is one)...?
