    you can use doubletwist to sync from what ive heard, i never used it. heres what i do

    go to settings > applications > usb settings > click mass storage.

    then when you plug your phone into your computer you should see a message in your notification bar, pull it down and click mount. then you can transfer music to it just like a flash drive or whatever, just drag and drop it

    yea my method doesnt sync. you need to open to go to computer and open the name that it gives your phone, mine is usually F:, you open it just like you would a flash drive and you have to drag and drop the music onto your phone.

    if you want it to sync you have to goto the market and search for doubletwist, there will be an app called music and the publisher is double twist. then you have to install doubletwist on your computer and it syncs somehow. supposed to be pretty easy but i havent used it
