    Hi all

    I'm yet to get an HD but am 99% convinced....just doing a little research into things that might be deal-breakers.

    With regard to getting music and video onto the device, what's the best/easiest/recommended way?

    Does it come with some sort of media sync app?

    I personally use an ipod at the moment, synced to my music player in Ubuntu. This is one of the main reasons that I don't want an iphone - being tied to windows as a pc user.

    Is it just a case of drag-and-drop, or can playlists be created and synced?

    Also, does it support podcast subscription, management and download in the same way that itunes does, for example?

    Questions, questions!

    Uri

    If you use it in conjunction with the HTC Sync software, it will sync with iTunes. Other than that, it IS just a case of drag'n'drop. Piece of proverbial urine to do.

    As for the podcasts etc., don't think so.....podcast is an Apple thing isn't it?

    You can use Drag and Drop.

    Podcasts you can get an app to sync them :)

    I personally use mediamonkey..best windows music manager IMO

    I love being able to get content onto the phone without cables

    for audio podcasts - Google listen is pretty good

    if you want video and audio podcasts, doggcatcher is worth the few shekels - excellent app

    re: music sync - winamp have a pretty solid music player with a "wifi sync" ability.
    It's in beta at the moment and it's a bit hit and miss right now but definitely one to watch watch

    and as @spenceruk mentioned above Media monkey is an outstanding music library management system allowing very complex syncs over multiple devices

    It's not exactly for syncing back and forth, but if you have a Squeezebox you can use Squeeze Commander to d/load music from the server to your phone, all from the comfort of your sofa :)

    Doubletwist is worth a look too.
