    Doubletwist took hours to scan my iTunes library. Now it crashes whenever it attempts start up. What a waste of time and effort.

    Well, I'll bet you did it on a PC, not a Mac. It didn't take anytime at all for double twist to scan my library, but unfortunately I have come to discover that Double Twist doesn't necessarily get it right.

    I have one particular album where it only recognized about 13 of the 18 tracks, I noticed that for some reason it didn't put a cover on the unrecognized tracks. It saw them but just didn't know they were in the same album.

    I deleted the partial album out of my phone, manually and then went into my music folder and dragged the entire album out of that folder. I noticed the tracks were out of order and didn't know how I was going to fix that but Droid put everything where it should be.

    So I'm not using Double Twist or recommending it any longer. Just drag and drop, it works fine.

    Double Twist does do pictures well. But you can drag and drop those too.

    DT doesn't do protected songs, right? Perhaps if you got the album from iTunes some of the songs were protected. I know when I tried to port over my iTunes library only about 1/5th of my songs made it because all the rest were protected.

    True and I know you're probably speaking to the OP but FWIW my songs that didn't get ported over on that one album were not protected sons.

    I think from what I read that Motorola Media Link is probably best to use with a PC. OP may want to give that a try.

    Double Twist is a music and photo transfer programs. It works with iTunes and wherever you photos are at and transfers them over. You simply hook your Droid up to the USB and it does it for you without having to drag and drop. It works OK but not as good as I first thought it did.

    That's odd then. I dunno I only used it once and when i discovered the protection on the iSuck songs I gave up and deleted everything. There are programs that remove the protection but it would take forever to do a whole play-list. I'll just stick to Pandroa personally.

    Agreed

    The program is truly useless. It doesn't crash on my machine, but I didn't get a chance to use it that much because it started sucking before I got that far.

    1. Each album is incapable of showing up as ONE album. Instead, you can only view music by track.
    2. You must create a playlist in order to play an album in order.
    3. Most tracks that have a good link to cover art (they look fine in every other program) don't get linked up in doubleTwist.
    4. I didn't even bother loading my playlists into it, but it seems most people have problems with this.

    It CLAIMS to build on iTunes and allow you to sync stuff in the same manner, but man, does it have a long way to go before it's anything but useless!

    What do other people do?
