    On mac there is a google music manager app. I downloaded it and it will upload my entire iTunes collection to my free-for-anyone-with-gmail Google Music collection. Then you can stream it through any device including web browser or sync it to an Android device. Forgot what it is for Windows but I am sure it is not much different. Go to music.google.com to get started.

    Depends also if the music was downloaded using iTunes or imported, if imported just copy it to the phone in mass storage mode, if it's DRM protected iTunes stuff it may be easier to burn it to CD as a regular audio CD and then rip it back as MP3. There are programs out there to hack the DRM but obviously I wouldn't sanction this.....

    2.) Download Google Android File Transfer, connect your phone via USB, Create a folder called "Music" on your phone, and simply select the tunes you want to transfer in iTunes and drag them to the Music folder on your phone to copy.
    i think im going to go the google android file transfer route google music is taking forever!.. Thank you for your help appreciate it

    iTunes has not used DRM for many years. It's gone, has been gone, and is not coming back for music. If anyone has downloaded music from iTunes any time in the past 3 years it is 100% DRM free and will play on any music player that can play ACC files; or just convert them to mp3s. If you have DRMed music from iTunes you can even "upgrade" them to DRM free and higher bit rate files; for a small price.

    Just trying to end this misinformation. I like to comparison shop between iTunes and AmazonMP3 myself, if I am looking to actually buy a track.

    It does take a little bit to do it but to get all of your music into Google Music is worth it. Upload once, never have to again. Google Music Manager will either sync new songs into the iTunes library on a schedule or you can do it manually. I do it manually as I do not purchase music that often. I use the manager though as I only ever need to move my music once to be available everywhere. I saw there is even an iOS app that will stream from Google Music for those iOS devices you might still be using.

    I use doubletwist to get music from itunes onto my Nexus 4 and past Android phones. You can sync only certain playlists or your whole library. You have to download app from Google Play and also download the program to your Mac.

    I have the same problem, I don't want to upload songs to google music and stream, I have iTunes collection that I would like to sync with N4, which includes syncing playlist and updating play count. I have researched and have found couple of options to go for (a) following apps are available in play store which can sync and update play count () & (). This is for use on Mac. (b) second option is to transfer library to Ubuntu and use Banshee or Rhythmbox player to sync (I believe Banshee can sync and update play count) (c) is to use dedicated music player for iTunes (my choice is 6th generation ipod nano).

    I believe I will go for (c) and over time, will set up Ubuntu/Banshee and also try above apps.

    let google music do its job, in the meantime (its gonna be a long time if you have over 600 songs) you can just transfer via usb. google music will put your music on its servers so you can view then anywhere on any device and even download them wirelessly onto your android device, it pritty much makes USB file transferring a thing of the past. wireless syncing is convenient once you got it all on the cloud

    +1 for Google Play music manager on Mac. I know a lot of folks are hesitant about this, but IMO it is much simpler to have all of my music in the cloud. Especially with the 8GB & 16GB options for the N4, no need to have the entire hard drive bogged down with music. You can always download the music from the cloud to your device (a few playlists, albums, etc.) if you are going to be offline and unable to stream. Plus, it monitors your music folder, so if you download any more music on iTunes on your mac, it will automatically be uploaded to your Google Play music.

    I used to have a 32GB iPhone filled to brim, and now i'm happy with my 16GB with plenty of free space. IMO, it is freeing...

    iTunes is simply a music player. Your music is "stored in iTunes." If you rip a CD, it's saved on your computer, and iTunes plays it for you. That's all it does.

    Personally I use a dedicated music player instead of my phone. Leaves more space for apps and pics.

    Yeah, all iTunes songs (at least in the US) will be DRM-free in steps since April 7, 2009. For the little copyrighted iTunes songs, in .m4p format, you can upgrade these songs to DRM-free files for US$0.30/song or use DRM removal software like the freeware iSyncr ( music only), ChewTune(music & video included), Double Twist /Air Sync to strip DRM from them.

    It has already been said that for a few years iTunes is DRM free. I just wanted to point out that the DMCA makes no distinction in how you circumvent DRM. Whether through software or hardware (burning then ripping) it is still circumvention and considered the same thing as far as the law is concerned. Kinda like ripping a DVD with handbrake and anydvd or recording it on VHS through an analog out. Both amount to the same thing in the eyes of the DMCA so if you are going to do it you might as well do the easier one that doesn't waste time or CD-R's.

    I just went from a Droid X to a Galaxy S3 and I still use my 2nd generation iPod Touch when I want to listen to music.

    I cant seem to enable Mass Storage Mode on my nexus4, so it can appear on doubletwist. How did you do it?

    Easiest way is sign up for Google music if available to you.

    You can upload your iTunes library.

    On your phone you can play anything in your library and choose to have some music saved to the phone.

    I'm very excited about GoogleMusic but concerned about how they identify songs as "pirated," how they mine for information, and what they will likely do about it. If some of my music was not purchased from prominent digital music stores, what is the likelihood of Google going further than taking it off my account?

    I don't listen to music all that much, to be honest. I'll listen in the car if I want the mental distraction (or I'm just in the mood) or sometimes if I'm out shopping. And for that, Google Music is AWESOME.

    <rant>
    And don't even get me started on DMCA. It was passed by those without true jurisdictional competence, under bribes / kickbacks / cajoling from Hollywood. It can be used, in conjunction with other laws, to harass, arrest, and detain citizens for no good reason. It also, in conjunction with treaties and other agreements signed between nations, allows Hollywood to charge, arrest, detain, and deport to the U.S. the citizens of sovereign nations (England lets us arrest and extradite their citizens; way to go British Parliament) when somebody somewhere "violates" the U.S. DMCA, even though it's not the law of their land.

    In short, I do not support any artist who signs with any label that goes along with this; besides, generally the artists out there are getting screwed by the labels anyhow, so any payment wouldn't really go to them anyhow.
