    Try DoubleTwist, it's pretty much the iTunes equivalent. Not as feature-rich ofc, but it appears to be a work in progress.

    Thanks! It works awesome. They also made the GUI look like itunes. Very cool!

    doubleTwist was great with my N1 until I downloaded their latest update. Now it doesn't recognize my N1 when plugged in. I can't figure it out and doubleTwist couldn't help either. Any suggestions out there?? DT is pretty much useless to me right now until I can figure out the issue.

    Do you have Froyo and is DT Froyo compatible?

    Yes on froyo and DT is compatible as far as I know. My problems started before I even got the froyo update. The issue arose after I did a DT software update, not an android update.

    If you haven't done so, contact the developer(s) of DT or see if you can get the previous version?

    As I stated earlier, doubleTwist didn't have a suggestion that solved the problem. It seems to be known issue though as there is a post on the DT forums about the problem.

    Just had this problem myself. I unmounted my Nexus, disconnected it, switched the power off (do you call that rebooting???), switched it back on, connected, mounted and it all worked fine again. In the middle of trying to add some more playlists to my Nexus and think I might have another problem now.........

    For podcasts, I use Google Listen which is great! It can update the podcasts automatically, download them to the phone when on wifi (or not), and has been great in allowing me to keep up with everything I listen to. The only issue I have had is making sure I have been able to find the podcast URL so that I can track them in Google Listen - only one or two have given me issues though...

    I'm trying iSyncr on my Dell Streak at the moment - seems pretty painless apart from the DRM issue.

    I found Double Twist to be FAR too slow.

    Don't the DoubleTwist folks want you to stop using iTunes though? There's no automatic tracking of iTunes library changes. As in if you make changes to your playlists and such in iTunes, you have to manually sync those changes back to DoubleTwist?

    Well, here doubletwist scans WMP at startup.. it's pretty slow though.

    I really like doubleTwist, seems fairly easy to use. Since I don't download much music, I don't need to sync often.

    As for podcasts, Google Listen works wonders, I'd give that a shot if I were you.

    Just tries out Listen. I had high hopes for it, but am really disappointed.

    Is there any way to donwload via desktop and transfer to your phone?

    From my short time messing with it, it seems to only DL one podcast at a time. And when the screen goes off it automatically pause that download. And even when you turn the screen back on, it stays paused until you unqueu it, and re-queue it.
