    Hi: What's the best app to auto sync my itunes playlists to the X? I have 10gb of non-drm songs on my ipod. I've heard that Apple has updated itunes to disable certain syncing apps.

    I can't find a utube that shows how to sync itunes playlists to the X.

    Also is the 16 gb sd card totally empty? If so then I should have 6gb after putting my music on the X. Correct? Thanks for the help.

    it's not completely empty, and I don't know of a good app to sync iTunes...however, I do know that two apps (doubleTwist and WinAmp) both have syncing options that also have a client for the android OS itself!

    See, macintosh hates you, that's why they lock all their stuff down and make it virtually impossible to sync itunes with anything but itself and other iProducts.

    Rebuild your library in doubleTwist or (my fav) winamp and then give that a go.

    doubleTwist crashed on my comp - but looks a LOT like iTunes, so it might be for you, idk. I prefer winamp, to each his own.

    I use iSyncr, too, and love it / highly recommend it. (Although with my nearly full 160gb iPod and more on my pc that's un-synced, I gotta be VERY selective with what I put on my DX, n'est ce pas? Those 1TB SDXC cards can't come soon enough!)

    iSyncr...

    Installed / sync'd last night - nice setup!
    Trying to get the album artwork from the PC to my winamp app on the X. Any tips?

    *edit: Just downloaded 'Album Art Grabber Free' per a post on the winamp Android forums. Works fine, but I'd like to find out how to import them from winamp if anyone knows.

    I just started using iSyncr. What an awesome app! I also added the wifi sinc for an extra $1, so no wires are needed.

    Droid X rooted with z4root and running DarkSlide V4.2 underclocked ( to save battery)

    I use winamp with the wireless feature. It is great, because you can just go onto the PC, select songs and drag them to your phone, and it will just send them on over via Wifi while your phone is upstairs charging or whatever.

    No issues with DRM, no issues with syncing to more than one PC or music library, etc... Just click, drag, done.

    TuneSync also does the same thing. Works good on my Mac.

    Isyncr is the Best I Have Tried, by Far

    Another vote for Isyncr. Alot of people love Doubletwist but it was very buggy on my Imac, where my Itunes library is. I could never get it to work properly.The other issue with I have with Doubletwist is that it creates an entire new music program on your computer, like a duplicate of Itunes, which seems to me to be a neeedless duplication.
    Isyncr just reads the playlists on your Itunes, displays the playlist names with a box next to them, you check the boxes of the playlists you want to transfer, Isyncr keeps a running tab of available space on your SD card, click the sync button, wait until the syncing is done , and you are finished. It couldn't be simpler, and you are not loading a lot of duplicate stuff on your computer to get it to work.
