    Every time I sync to add an album, it removes everything then "copies" everything. I don't get exactly what it's doing, but it takes forever when it does this. Anyone have this issue and/or a solution?

    In MM, right-click on the Nexus One in the left side listing, then left-click on "Configure Device". Choose the Music locations, Playlists, Podcasts, etc that you want on the device by checking their boxes. Then click OK to save.

    The reason MM is erasing and replacing stuff each time you Auto-Sync is that you haven't told it to keep anything on the device. I know this isn't intuitive, but the learning curve with MM is well worth it. There's practically nothing it can't do, once you figure out how (ask in the MediaMonkey forums). Truth be told, though, it should be called AudioMonkey, since it doesn't handle video -- I could care less about video on these tiny things.

    This is the WORST program I have ever used to sync in my life. In fact, this is the WORST DEVICE I've ever experienced syncing with! Makes me want to go back to my iPhone where I can click ONE BUTTON!

    Now that I've purchased a bigger SD card, in fact, the exact card that comes stock with the phone (just bigger) I'm having the same shitty problems. Every time I add one album, I'm going to have to wait for this garbage to remove everything and re-sync? That takes 4-5 hours, BTW. Yes. 4-5 hours. Jesus Christ! I'm about to put this phone on eBay because of this alone...

    Wow, 4-5 hours, that's absurd. Must be the slow access time of the SD card compared to flash memory. I've never had an MP3 player with an SD card, so I can't say for sure, but I suspect the SD card may be treated separately from the flash memory, by MediaMonkey.

    That is, does MediaMonkey list them separately on the left column? If so, then you would probably right-click the SD Card in the listing, then Configure Device, etc., just like you did with the Phone itself.

    What I would normally do is to create a playlist with a name like "Nexus SD Card". When you do the Configure Device thing for the SD Card, make sure you've selected that playlist under the Playlists tab. That way it will maintain that playlist on the device at all times, updating it when needed, but never erasing and restoring the entire playlist every time.

    When you want to add an album or song, you simply add it to the "Nexus SD Card" playlist, and it will be added ONCE, next time you sync. When things are getting removed when you don't want them to be, it's because you haven't selected them to be retained, in the Configure Device area.

    If there's a better program for syncing with the Nexus One, maybe someone else out there can suggest one. I'm familiar with MediaMonkey from past use with various MP3 players and iPods, so that's what I'll be using on the N1 when Verizon finally gets it.

    Though I've never used either to sync to my N1, try the following:

    DoubleTwist
    SongBird

    yes. it can sync playlists as well. It is setup in the MM sync configuration, if you want it to auto-sync. Or you can "send (a playlist) to" your Nexus form MM at any time you want to. So, for instance, on my Nexus, I sync "Nexus rock" and "Nexus jazz" as separate playlists and they both show up. BTW, I am trying out "Mixzing" as a replacement music app from the mktplace and liking it. Cheers.
