    You may have spelled "manager" wrong. Here's a link:

    Yeah I added a test playlist My droid device in iTunes. Then told agent to sync. It moved the music, but it wasn't organized in the playlist name I gave it. And it's a pain to manually create a playlist on the droid.

    And this motorola medialink thing is ****. I downloaded the installer and it just keeps running, restarting my machine, and running again. Never actually installs anything. Even gave me a system startup error on one of the restarts. Avoid.

    I still have double twist and hwile it can take a while to sync, so far it's the only thing I've found the syncs music AND organizes in a playlist.

    Actually, google is planning on releasing its own music service and are going to make an app for android phones. This will be the iTunes/iPhone deal, but for all android phones. This should be out by the end of the year.

    did you reboot your computer??

    It opens automatically when you plug your droid with usb, don't forget to mount the sd card... before start syncing.

    Well I finally got medialink to download and install. but it didn't download and install any drivers. I opened it up and told it clean and download new drivers. Been stuck there making no progress for about 10 minutes. What a piece of ****.

    Found it!! It's called iSyncr. Available in the market. There's a free version. It works. I downloaded the full version after testing the free version.

    I've got it paired with mixzing for the music player.

    ANybody use btunes? Is it worth it?

    I am just going to take this time to have an extra special geek moment.

    My Ubuntu boxes sync with my Droid perfectly. I use a program called Banshee, a sort of iTunes alternative for Ubuntu. Sync's playlists, podcasts, you name it. And if Banshee isn't your cup of tea, there is Exhaile, Rhythmbox, Amarok etc etc.

    This is actually the first time I think I can concretely say that this is an unequivocal victory for Open Source and Linux in general.

    Ok, back to your regularly scheduled program. (Oh, by the way, I can sync over Wifi, too. :p )

    thanks for the help. I found it. Only problem is it will install the drivers, but thats it. It said all the drivers were installed correctly, but there is no icon to run the application. There is an icon in the program files in the motorola folder that says "app". I assume you can click this to run the application, but when I do nothing happens.

    Media link stats automatically only when you connect your droid. Mine would never instal the drivers though. Just did nothing.

    And yes I did use isyncr. It works. Imports music AND playlists.

    It certainly can but it's not just a matter of coding the app. The infrastructure behind it all also has to be in place.

    This is one of those areas where the users fall short. Google doesn't have to provide every solution out-of-the-box. Is your PC worthless because it doesn't ship with all the apps that you use?

    That said, I would agree that for the average consumer, it would benefit Android to have such a solution included with the Android device. However, I don't see how they can just offer "universal support" as you're suggesting.

    Have you checked out the Applications forum? It's discussed there.
