    What is itunes?

    Regardless, if you have the music files (you answered your own question partially), then that's the answer.

    1. Copy to SD card, or
    2. Use a sync tool like doubletwist.

    I hate sync tools, and android makes it soooooo easy!

    Just use DLNA to connect to your computer (if its on your wifi network) and make your music folder sharable. You can copy them over wire free in a matter of minutes..its amazing.

    TuneSync! I love it. Wireless sync with your iTunes.

    I started out just copying music files and folders to the Droid-X. This would have worked OK had I been willing to copy my entire music library to the phone. Unfortunately, I have more music than will fit on even a 32gb card. So I wanted some sort of intelligent syncing.

    After researching DoubleTwist, iSyncr and other options, I bought TuneSync and I like the way it is setup, but not pleased with the speed of syncing (either wired or wireless). It tells you status and gives a sort of progress bar, but only for the track it is currently syncing. It doesn't look at what it has to do, then estimate a time to complete the whole job. Leaving my phone plugged into to my pc overnight, it still failed to sync 12gb. Any model iPhone or iPod would sync that much in about an hour. I suspect that there is something horribly inefficient in TuneSync's setup.

    I'd give TuneSync 3 stars out of 5. I hope it gets better, but it seems to be the best option for now.
