    Any ideas if something to help sync anything the Macs? Or just sync everything with google then sync that way? And manually manage music and video?

    I'm not 100% but I think even on Windows, you'll need to manage music/video manually right now. I haven't looked into Motorola's portal program, but it may be able to sync media. Have you ever thought of setting up Boot Camp or Parallels or something to run Windows programs that you may need? Just an option if you can't find a good solution on your Mac.

    I understand that. Well since Android has been growing in popularity and now Verizon is partnering with them also, I'm sure it will get big enough soon that someone will work on a Mac solution. There are lots of Mac users out there and I bet they all feel the same way you do.

    Markspace's Missing Sync is available for beta download right now and a final version shouldn't be too far being (hopefully).

    If it works like Android on my G1:

    1.Plug the usb cable into the phone and computer
    2.Phone should give you a notification in the windows which allows you to select the option to 'mount' the phone/SD card or 'transfer files'
    3. Once you choose that option (from the notification window) then it should show up as a drive letter on your computer (like a flash drive would).
    4. Make a folder for your music (or not) and copy them over.
    5. Done. Go to the media player to play your music

    i figured it out with double twist. you have to go to notifications and turn the droid to USB storage mode so it will be recognized by double twist.

    There's NO WAY IN HELL I WILL EVER USE THAT PROGRAM AGAIN..

    I tired it on my Blackberry and it NEVER worked 100%. EVER.

    Why would I BUY that when I can use Double twist for FREE....
