I tried using HP Play but it doesn't work out for me. Keeps giving me an USB error on my Touchpad and HP Play does not recognizes my TouchPad either.

I'm pretty sure I did USB mode and created a folder called music and dragged and dropped my music into that. Hope that helps/works :-)

edit: is your touchpad giving you the USB error or the computer?

The HP TouchPad is giving me the error ONLY when HP Play is running. When it's not running, I can easily access the root folders of TouchPads without a problem. I didn't know you could create a folder called music and just drag and drop. I'm new to webOS. Thanks, I'll give it a try! (:

Try using MediaMonkey. It's a good media manager and can also be configured to embed album art inside mp3 tracks, so that it will show up on the touchpad

There is also a program called hp play, which syncs your itunes library on to the touchpad. Very easy to use.

**SEE FIRST POST***

Don't post what has already been posted.

Anyways, as for the problem, I have some additional info relating to my own problem:

I tried dragging and dropping a folder called "music" onto my Touchpad and it wasn't recognized by the music app. I would advise using HP Play if you can, but since you can't I would recommend creating a folder called "music" on your Touchpad and then transferring music. For some reason transferring all of your music in a folder titled music isn't recognized. It may also have been because I was in developer mode. Oh well!

HP play is pretty bad, at least on the mac.

as others said, try media monkey, missing sync, or patches for iTunes.

if only Apple didn't go out of their way to make all itunes users upgrade itunes to prevent apple itunes customers from using their devices to play music they purchased from itunes... Apple would never exploit a monopoly in one area, like a music store, to expand in another, like mp3 players, because that kind of activity would be obviously illegal...
