    WHAT is the best method of transferring iTunes files to your phone??

    iTunes Agent isn't working. "My Devices" just sits over in playlists. I can't get my Droid to pop up.

    And doubleTwist.. from it not bringing everything in my iTunes over (BUT bringing multiple copies some stuff over) to it not playing ANY videos (outside of music videos), that's not working either. I took everything from there off my card.

    **** Apple.

    So is there any other good ways of going about this? Or the ones I mentioned above.. are they the best ways and I should just keep playing around with them?

    i just use windows explorer and drag and drop music onto a folder I named Music on my Droid. Unless you're looking for a sync process, the method i described is simple, albeit not glamorous.

    Best is always subjective. iTunes Agent has been best for me. DoubleTwist has been best for many others. There are certainly other sync apps you can try out if you're not happy with either of these (see existing threads for more suggestions).

    Why are you blaming Apple? DoubleTwist and iTunes Agent aren't their apps.

    Are you mounting the card? Did you create the "tag" (I forget what iTunes Agent officially calls it) file on the SD card so iTunes Agent can identify the card as the Droid when it's mounted?

    He is *****ing because Apple specifically prevents non Apple devices from syncing to iTunes.. he is *****ing because this makes it more difficult to get music he owns on devices he wishes to listen to them on, just because that device isn't made by Apple. Legitimate.

    Are you not able to drag and drop from the iTunes library? ( Outside of iTunes )
    Don't have a Droid yet ( Waiting on X ) but seems that would.

    It would be nice if Motorola had an application to help sync music or videos to the device.
    I guess they are Expecting a Third party to provide that Sync capability.

    It would be nice if you could do that within iTunes, but Apple has there motives just like everyone else.

    I'm using Motorola Media Link that shipped with the Droid to sync and it works great for me. No duplicates and as I add songs to Itunes it picks them up and sync to my droid no problem. The ONLY issue I've had is that some album art doesn't display.

    Why not drag and drop?

    I never could get used to the idea of syncing. I just prefer placing files where I want them. Seems clear cut and easy to me.
