    No. You can still drag and drop directly to the internal memory as you could before. Just plug it in to your comp

    what version? I know xp has some troubles with MTP if windows media player 10 is not installed, but if you have 7 it should work fine, not sure about vista.

    I don't have itunes on this laptop yet, but I just dragged an mp3 file from a folder on the nexus and it worked, try that if you can.

    Same question here, but for a Mac laptop. I just plugged in my GNex and it doesn't even come up on the laptop as an external device. ARgh. Phone IS charging though. So clearly it's getting power from the Mac. Gonna try reboot...

    Never mind: android.com/filetransfer has the software you need to connect the phone with a Mac! Now I can see the phone and can drag music right into the music folder.

    Try just going to your itunes folder in windows explorer and drag and drop from there onto the nexus. Or give Google Music a shot...it works great

    Honestly, people. Google Music is the easiest way. If you're worried about not having music when you don't have a strong signal, then you can always pin a lot of it to be available when you're offline. That way, your music is synced to Google Music so you can listen through any browser wherever you are, and it will also be available for streaming through your device or cached locally on your device.

    OK, so say hypothetically that I am on a cruise ship floating in the middle of the deep blue sea next week. I can actually pick songs on Google music and it will download them on the phone and keep them there, so my total and utter lack of cel phone signal next week would not be a problem???

    If that's the case, I am game for trying it. I already uploaded my entire library to G music (took 3 days) in the summer, but never did like the beta interface so I have not used it yet...

    Yes. You just have to mark each album or song or playlist (pretty sure it works for playlists, anyway) to be available offline.

    Doubletwist. It pulls all the iTunes information and can sync playlists.

    Or the Google Music uploader syncs 100% with iTunes, except for any DRM music

    It doesn't sync to the device natively on the computer, however.

    That's because there's no need - it wirelessly syncs to your device

    OMG people actually use itunes without ipods?????? iTunes is the biggest piece of garbage app on Windows since AOL. Learn to use Windows Explorer. If youre still that helpless, install Winamp and use it for syncing. iTunes is TERRIBLE.

    Google Music is fine for streaming and all, but if you want a REAL audio experience you need to use Power AMP or GTFO. nothing on any phone, including iPhone, compares to Power AMP. I've tried them all.

    I am not quite sure how this worked but all my music from my TB somehow transfered via Google Music. I was going to drag and drop but for some reason I opened google music and it was there already. Not sure how that worked but it was a pleasant surprice.

    I just hope that the drag and drop for music works better than picture tranfers worked.

    I've had Doubletwist for a while now, but have always found it buggy. My device doesn't show up more than half the time, and its very very slow. With the new Galaxy Nexus, I'm hoping for a fresh start on many things, music syncing with my iTunes on a Mac, being one of them.

    So, has anybody here used Winamp? Does Winamp offer the same functionality as Doubletwist: basically read my iTunes playlists and transfer selected songs over to the phone, such that I can hear them through the Winamp app?

    You can't import playlists, unfortunately. Maybe later. Til then, you just have to do a full sync with either iTunes or WMP

    I'm surprised none of you haven't mentioned Isyncr. It's the best program I've found so far. I use Google music but it seems to drain the battery pretty good when streaming. I think I will use Isyncr to put all my current songs on the gnex and, then use Google music to buy new songs and, I can always make them available offline when I want. The only thing is, it won't do any old drm-protected files.

    I like Poweramp but, the music player in ICS is much improved and I actually prefer it.

    Edit: I was wrong, Poweramp is much better when you install the music directly on the phone. I also hadn't accessed all the eq settings until I put the phone in landscape.
