iTunes Music Transfer: Calyx M Player
One of the top questions we answer about the Calyx M is whether it is Mac compatible. To make this clear, no music player other than the Apple iPhone, iPad or iPod can connect directly to your iTunes library. Apple has specifically designed the iTunes program for those specific devices. However, you can transfer your iTunes library to your Calyx M music player other ways.
Two ways for iTunes Music transfer to Calyx M with the Finder app.
Finder & Android File Transfer
When connecting your Calyx M to your Apple MacBook with a USB cable, download Android File Transfer app. The MacBook will need this app in order to recognize the Calyx M. No worries, this app is a free and easy to use program.
Finder & External SD Card
With the Calyx M, you have the option to store your music to an external memory card like an SD or micro SD card prior to inserting it into the player. With this method, you do not need to download the Android File Transfer app. You will simply drag and drop music from your music folders to the SD card inserted into the computer.
