    Hi All -

    I’ve been a long time Apple user. I tried to switch with the Note 9, but returned it because I couldn’t figure out how to sync music between iTunes and the Note 9. I found some programs however, they couldn’t import duplicates. I am huge classical music buff, so for example, I have tracks titled “Symphony No. 7” by a good dozen composers. I wouldn’t allow me to add them all because it saw them as duplicates.

    If anyone has an easy way let me know, please. I’ve searched YouTube and everything there is so old, and it did not work last time.

    Senuti was the one that I sometimes recommend, but unfortunately it seems to be no longer supported and updated. Apart from that, can't help you, I don't use Itunes these days.

    Is your music actually ID3 tagged at all, so software knows if "Symphony No. 7" is by say Brahms or Liszt?

    Actually, we can transfer music from iTunes on an Android Phone manually, with Google Play, by using iTunes to Android Sync. About the details, you can check online. Just have a try and choose the way you like better.

    Just copy your music folders using a USB cable. Absolutely no need for any special software.

    You and I think of music as files on a storage device, but I've been through this itunes thing several times at my office .. Apple assumes everyone's a ****** and needs to be held by the hand, and make it difficult for normies to perform (understand) basic functions.

    Apple tend to not advertise where they store music, but once you find the directory it's all nicely laid-out (folders by artist/album).

    But my real motivation for posting "you don't need anything like that" is that the member in question (whose post is no longer present) was a shill: they'd done nothing since joining except posting recommendations for that piece of software, searching out threads they can post to. They presented themselves as an ordinary user, but their single-minded focus on promoting that piece of software says otherwise. And that renders their recommendation worthless to my mind.
