    You will need a desktop sync software dedicated to those phones. Have a look at there websites for apps or via there forum for syncing. There are a few paid for types for mobile syncing. Your movies would need conversion to mp4 I would look at the app stores on the mac.

    If the developer of your phone doesn't have software (or if it's terrible), you can try the official Android File Transfer app.

    Video and audio support will depend on whether or not your phone has added support for non-standard formats. Regardless, here's the list of supported audio/video formats for Android.

    Best I've found for audio is Rocket Player Premium and their iSyncr app - link.

    Haven't synced any movies - have a boatload in Vudu and Amazon that can be downloaded/streamed directly.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
