    On my computer, all Itunes music is stored in my documents under music. Itunes is listed there. You just drill down until you find the music files. then its just drag and drop.

    Important thing to note is that you cannot transfer any content you purchased from iTunes using the above process. There are work around to do that though.

    That's the easy part. Now if we only had a player that was as easy to use/full featured as itunes (smart playlists, sleep timer, browser interface).

    Then it is my bad. I assumed that Apple's DRM would prevent the music from playing on another device, but I think Apple is no longer using DRM on music purchased on the iTunes stores. However, they DO continue to use DRM on video content.

    Yes, Apple no longer protects thier music with DRM so its easy to drag and drop.

    Would it matter if I am still using an older version of iTunes? Or should I go ahead and update my software.

    Any music you have already bought in DRM format (*.m4a files) will not be un-DRMed just by upgrading your iTunes. You can either pay Apple even more money to unlock the files you already bought from them, or you can use a program like Tunebite to convert them to mp3's.

    I use ITunes Agent. It takes whatever I setup in iTunes and sends it to the Droid.

    On the Droid I use MixZing as the Audio Player as it does better with Playlists, IMHO.

    Oh and BTW, I listen to Audio Books 90% of the time, in case that matters.

    I just drag/drop my iTunes purchased music to my SD card via USB and they play automatically on the stock music player, with album cover and all... very easy actually.

    I'm satisfied with creating a Droid playlist in iTunes and using iTunes Agent to sync, but wish I didn't have to copy specific songs into the Droid playlist and could instead leverage the native iTunes capability to sync only the music I've checked.

    I also have switched to MixZing - mostly for the recommendations capability. UI is very touch screen friendly, unlike some other music applications.

    Make sure you're dragging the music into the "media/audio" folder. That's where the music is stored on my SD Card. Didn't see anyone mention that, just thought it'd be great to mention it.

    I have used doubletwist to sync my music from itunes to my droid and the music from the selected playlists did get copied over but when I launch the native music application there are no playlists in the playlist menus all the music is there under artists and albums but no playlists.

    How do you create playlists that will show up here on the droid? Or even better anyone have a different app that will do what doubletwist does (sync my itunes playlists onto my droid) but also add the playlists themselves into the native player?

    Artwork will only come over to the Droid if you have the artwork embedded in the actual song files (the only way to go, in my opinion). If you use iTunes to automatically get artwork, it is only stored in the iTunes database - it won't be in the mp3 files you pass to the Droid.
