I can't comment on the versions for the Rezound, but It's been flaky on my Desire HD and Wildfire S. You'll find a lot of threads around the various HTC forums complaining that HTC Sync doesn't do what it's supposed to.
@El Presidente: is there a way to sync itunes playlists via that program? I downloaded the add-on "controller" but is doesn't seem to work the Rezound. When I try to open it a get the message "no COM ports available".

I do it manually still because as it was said, its just easier. But I never had any real issues with the Amazon Cloud other than the streaming slowing up. But rarely. Glad ya found something else that works
HTC Sync is definitely crap and more trouble than it's worth, but I it installs some drivers that other programs occasionally use, so I install it to load the drivers, then uninstall it.
I had an Iphone for 3 years and I don't think I ever used a play list, so like the others, I just connect the phone to my PC, copy and paste all of my songs to my phone then I open my favorite player and tap shuffle.
I use HTC Sync to sync my contacts (from a new Outlook account just for phone numbers only) and it works fine. For music files, i usually just copy/paste it into in the phone manually.... have not used HTC Sync to do this yet. bye.
I just used HTC Sync to sync some new MP3 files (once in a while I just sync some Outlook contacts). Everything went smootly... I plugged in the micro-USB cable and the laptop chimed as it found the USB device (phone). Then I clicked "Open folder to view files" (may not matter whether i clicked this or not).
Anyways, I slided the ring on the HTC lock screen to activate/wake the phone. Earlier the phone (Settings - Connect to PC) has been set to "HTC Sync" default. So now the phone's screen said "Finding HTC Sync on your PC. Please wait...".
A few seconds later the HTC Sync software showed up on the laptop's screen. Then i reconfigured it to add/sync Music too (before this everything was disabled except for People/Outlook contacts). Then I hit the "Sync now" button on the laptop and it started syncing the People/contacts and Music/MP3 files.
Later I unplugged the USB cable, started the stock MP3 player and it found/played these new music files. I suppose the HTC Sync works just fine on my laptop/phone (but i don't quite like the path/subdirectories where it placed these MP3 files... sometimes it's much better to manually copy/paste it into the phone to where we really want to place it and not let it go to where that HTC Sync wants to place it). bye
The HTC Rezound is the first Beats by Dre smartphone from HTC and will be available on Verizon. It truly is a high-end beast as it boasts a 4.3 inch 720p HD display, a 1.5Ghz processor, 1GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel rear camera with 1080p HD video rec... Read More
