So I'm using rsync to get music from my Mac to the SD card in my Samsung Intercept. I don't want all my music, I want to pick and choose. I'm using the following as my rsync command:
rsync -hrltvz --modify-window=1 --exclude-from=exclude-from-file
My exclude-from-file looks like this:
+ Blue October/***
The final - * tells rsync to skip everything. The only thing that is copied over is the Blue October directory and everything under that directory. Any .m4p, .wav, and .DS_Store files are also excluded. To add a new artist for syncing I just add a line + artist/*** to the exclude file.

I was trying to rsync some iTunes music to an SD card from my Mac. All was working well but all the files were being synced each time. Turns out it's an issue with a Microsoft(FAT32) formatted card, which my Samsung Intercept has. Answer was to add --modify-window=1 as an rsync option. Solution here.
