    After trying every possible way to sync music, mentioned in my signature are my adventures but i would bother reading that now, cause the best music syncing thing is by far Song Bird found here:

    http://www.getsongbird.com/

    If you need help setting it up (its fairly straight forward though) check out my article here on Song Bird and the Droid:

    Easiest Way to Sync Music to Your Motorola Droid

    If you have any questions feel free to ask here. If you have ever used iTunes it pretty much works like that, just don't forget to mount your Droid. Also be sure to check out all the add ons you can get for Song Bird.

    Looked promising but alas, although songbird has a release that works on a Mac, the extensions MTP,MSC do not, so back to the drawing board, I have found myself going back to my iphone more and more..

    If I may add a little commentary on your commentary (attempting to make it as constructive as possible), try to proofread your articles. This may be just me, and I realize I don't even use perfect English all the time, but make sure to get the basics down. There != their != they're, as soon as I see one of these I start to cringe and it makes it difficult to finish the article. Second, use some punctuation to split ideas into separate sentences. Third, try to be more descriptive in your writing. What you're writing about may be inherently interesting to you, but to me, the common reader, you're going to have to sell me on it.

    Overall, though, your articles are really informative and I truly appreciate the fact that you're taking the time to sit down and document your experiences, and share some great Android software with everyone.

    I'm going to download SongBird now and check it out.

    just downloaded songbird and it blows double twist away. i'd go with drag and drop but over time my music is all scattered around on my pc...so if i had to go looking for it, im afraid I'd punch a baby. of course if i could just use itunes i would but songbird seems to be the same so far.

    Yeah dragging and dropping has been my number one choice for sure. I'm not using my phone as my primary music device so I don't really need everything on there.

    Yep Songbird + Mac = letdown. I'm giving itunemywalkman another shot. Anybody have any experience with isyncr in the market?

    EDIT: Oh yeah remembered why I didn't use itunemywalkman. I try installing the iTunes scripts and get Applescript Error: Can’t make 0 into type boolean. (-1700). Super.

    I currently use DT but it doesn't wow me.

    I'm sticking with Salling Media Sync. I'm just not into having another program that needs to scan/index my music.

    I'll take a look at songbird, but do far I'm looking mediamonkey seems to work quite well.

    What is up with the animal names in the titles? What's next, Crazy Cockatoo? Awkward Armadillo? Maybe Prissy Panther?

    I found iTunes Agent to be great and easy. Drag and drop has the problem of adding/removing songs.

    What does Song Bird have that makes it better than iTunes Agent?

    I use the DROID as my primary MP3 player, and I have to +1 simply Drag+Drop.

    Every other solution I find to be obnoxious.
