iSyncr works great for me..it's easy to use, doesn't hog up my droid with needless space holding some huge application. I just update my itunes on my computer the way I want and then start up iSyncr, pick my playlists and I'm good to go.
I used to use doubletwist but it just seemed kinda redundant to have an interface to interface with the itunes interface just to get music on my droid. Much easier IMO, to just set up my itunes and then sync away, especially since all my songs are in some sort of playlist.Moto. Droid

I use my own tool, mdSync. It's on my site (PC only, requires USB connection). The one on there currently is BB only, but my development version does Android too. I'm going to add a feature to automatically add any amazon MP3s on your Android to your local iTunes library when you sync. The star-rating is BB only at this point.
After I started using Google Listen for podcasts and the amazon MP3 store, I have not had any need to sync, however.
By the way, my tool is free and open source. Let me know if your would be interested in an Android version and I'll speed up the work getting it available.Please use the Thanks button below and to the right.

Android convert here with a newbie question.
I'm getting my droidx in the mail. I open it up. I have 30,000 songs on my itunes, so I have no interest in stuffing my HD with songs. What's the best way to do this? I've read up on these forums and seemed think cubed looked like a cool player. So say I get cubed to be my player. It doesn't sync with itunes? So I need a sync program too? I get one of the ones you guys are voting on, and it syncs with my itunes to get the files on my phone. Do these sync softwares not already have players? What's the benefit of having a syncer and a different player? It seems redundant, but maybe not.
I guess the question is this: I sync files through isyncr, do they automatically go into cubed so I can play them? Is that necessary? Can I drag files into cubed somehow? Is there a good application that does both play and sync?

If you use iSyncr, I believe all of your music has to be in the iSyncr folder, especially if you want to maintain the two-way syncing of playcounts and ratings.

let me preface by saying - i've never used iTunes or any such software. i don't ever buy mp3s - i just stream music with Radio Time.
my question - why do you need sync software like this? why not just drag and drop mp3s onto your SD card and call it a day?

Because it allows me to plug a Droid into a computer running iTunes, and have it automatically synchronize the 2 devices with the iTunes playlist of choice. If I delete something on either side, the other side is updated to reflect the change. It makes file management a lot easier than dragging and dropping, particularly if you have a lot of songs/albums that you're trying to manage. In my case, I have a specific playlist in iTunes called Droid X. I usually select multiple albums from my music collection and drag them into this playlist. From a file management standpoint, I find this a lot more user friendly.
Another advantage, is that it pushes the album art over as well. I haven't always had the best of luck with album art using the drag and drop method.

Tunesync Missing Album Art...
Has anyone found a way to correct the missing artwork when using Tunesync? I've sent an email of to the Dev with no response as of yesterday.
I do not keep .jpg's in a folder for my music collection. They are all embedded in to the songs file(Metadata). They are done correctly I might add as well. For whatever reason I can put the songs on my HTC Incredible anyway I want and the artwork displays correctly. But when I use Tunesync, most but not all songs are missing artwork. Also, I noticed that a few songs have longer track times than what they are suppose to have(only a few), yet they play just fine, and stop at the correct amount of time they are suppose to.
As an example: Any one of my music players on the phone will show the total track time of 4:16s, yet I know its only 3:59s and the song will play and end at 3:59s.
I've reinstalled the app etc once, but may try again. Through searching I've come across a few people with the artwork issue with nothing resolved.

I have been much happier with Motorola Media Link, written by Nero, which is available, free on the Motorola site. It gets zero attention on the forums because Motorola hasn't promoted it, and it isn't an App on the smartphone, but it has been working beautifully for me, for music and photos. I haven't used the podcast functionality.
