DoubleTwist was painfully, painfully slow to sync my media on my Windows 7 machine. Now, I do have a Windows Home Server where my media resides, so that may be a cause; perhaps DT isn't optimized for server access (they should be; more and more people are getting servers).
So I decided to just use Windows Media Player. Recognizes fine, just not playlists.

Used doubletwist this morning to push a bunch of mp3 and m4a songs to the Hero. No issues at all -- fast and easy.Palm Pilot > Palm V > Palm Tungsten T > Palm Treo 650 > Palm Centro > Palm Pre > HTC Hero > Palm Pre > iPhone 4

Sounds good. Although, after reading about which folders the music goes in to, I found it pretty easy just to drag and drop. The issue I came upon w/ dragging and dropping myself is that not all the art/covers came w/ it. Quite a few songs didn't get the album art to come with. Does DT do a better job of pairing that w/ songs when transferring?

I've found it to be extremely slow as well. I even disabled all sync options except podcasts, and even 1 podcast takes 15+ minutes to sync. This is the only thing I've been really disappointed with so far in my switch from the Pre. The media players are all horrid.

I keep trying to like DoubleTwist, but I just can't.
It's ugly, slow, refuses to find my podcasts or let me subscribe to new ones, doesn't minimize to tray so when playing music you have to have two windows on your bar, sync is painfully slow, there are no options for playing songs other than alphabetically, no visualizer, no equalizer and basically it just sucks.
Now I'm sure if you just wanted it for syncing and not for the playing of music it's handy, cuz it does have the Android Market integrated, but I was hoping for something to replace iTunes and it is not even close to being able to do so.

I've been using iSyncr for PC for syncing and bTunes for playing music.
I like how iSyncr is able to sync things fairly easily (although the UI isn't great) (and it isn't very quick), and bTunes is a pretty good music player (only complaint with bTunes is that it sometimes puts the wrong album art over my correct album art that is already there).
I may switch to DoubleTwist for both playing and syncing when I get my MacBook Pro. Does DoubleTwist sync back playcounts through their DT Sync software?
I tried out the DoubleTwist playing app, and when I went to sync back with iSyncr, I noticed that the songs I just played didn't sync back in terms of the playcount. I also noticed that the songs didn't scrobble with Last.fm while played. This may be the same issue between the two, does anybody know if that is the case? Perhaps whatever music apps have to do to "tell" Android that a song is playing/has been played isn't occuring with DoubleTwist? I know that DoubleTwist said that Last.fm scrobbling will work with a new version. My playcounts sync back to iTunes when I sync with iSyncr whether I play with the stock Music app or bTunes (just not DoubleTwist right now).
