how do you guy put music on the droid
There's a few different ways. You can mount your Droid to your computer and drop it in file by file, OR you can get a program on the internet that's free called Double Twist that is made to work with iTunes and will load your music that way.
I go the drag and drop route.
Double Twist works rather well if you're accustomed to itunes use of playlists. For the longest time I never used playlists but once I started it made syncing a lot easier.
Motorola Media Link will also sync your iTunes or Windows media player (zune) music and playlists to the droid. It will also do your pics and videos. I haven't tried double twist because once I figured out how to use Motorola Media Link, it has worked perfectly for me.
What/where is Motorola Media Link? An Android Market search gave no results ...
I heard there's an app in the market called CD Osmosophier... Apparently you just stack your CDs on top of the DROID and it burns them all to MP3 format.
I use Media Monkey. Awesome program... and it's also open source like Android!
+1 on this comment with a !. I have about 2400 songs on my iPod. If I loaded them all on my Droid I'd have no room for anything else. Using DoubleTwist and the playlist features I can download a selected set of songs by artist or genre for the phone and maintain a master on my computer.
Does the Osmosophier work for burning DVD's too?
MML runs on the PC to sync your media to the droid, so it won't be in the market place. You can download it here Motorola Media Link - Motorola USA
I tried Media Monkey a while ago, and all I could ever get it to do is crash repeatedly on Vista/32. gave up on it.
There are quite a few options for syncing. In addition to the ones already mentioned there is also iTunes Agent and Sailing Media Sync. Probably others as well.
Don't overlook searching here as well (as general advice).
