    Why do you still use iTunes?

    I gave DoubleTwist a try using Windows 7 however it continues to to crash every time I try and load it. Has anyone else had this problem?

    I think it boils down to this. If you want to use iTunes then you should use DoubleTwist. If you dont like Itunes then MediaMonkey or WinAmp are you best choices. See which one you prefer.

    I tried today for the heck of it to use Windows Media Player aka WMP and for some reason can't get it to be recognized as a portable player.

    I did try to attach the Pre both as a 'Media Device' and as a USB Device'.

    Windows would not see it.

    Does anyone know how to get it to be seen by WMP (Windows Media Player)?

    Thanks

    +1. I just didn't upgrade iTunes. I'm still at 8.1.X. Simplest solution to me even though I hate using iTunes.

    I would advise you don't use DoubleTwist.
    It's in beta and it's definitely beta level software, they have a lot of bugs to work out.

    It's slow, doesn't remember your media library and as soon as you pick a different category (like Music, photos, etc...) it'll lose the info it built in the previous category.
    On my system (dual core 3.0 processor and 4 gigs of RAM) it takes 5-10 minutes to cycle through my media.
    I would wait until this mature a bit.

    I've been using MediaMonkey and it's been GREAT.
    I set up my pre up as generic USB device and can sync to it just as easily as I did with iTunes.
    The playlists don't work, but I never use playlists anyway so in my case it doesn't matter.

    Actually the playlists will work in that it will copy over the songs associated with the playlist, but you won't be able to play the actual playlist on the pre, just the media that was synced.
    Went from iPhone to Pre and love it!

    You are going to get a lot of replies here, and you are not limited by just the 3 you mentioned. I prefer Winamp, and Amarok.

    Winamp is lighter weight customizable, & stable!

    There are literally dozens of Media Players ( Most Open source/Free) I suggest you try a couple and decide whihc one works/ performs, looks best for your needs.

    I use winamp & XMMS, Also Like Amarok, Amarok is busy and confuisng for a new user.

    I haven't been able to get album artwork to work well with anything but Doubletwist and Itunes.

    The very first time I opened WMP when the Pre was connected, it loaded a driver. After that, it just worked. However, I do have to select the Sync tab to see it.

    I just downloaded and installed (on Vista) Wimamp after reading your post and then imported my iTunes library and playlists. Not sure what the issue is, but I couldn't get it to work; certain songs would play, others would do nothing, and then for others it would just ignore what I selected and scroll through the list of songs until it found something it liked and would then play that.

    I Just used Winamp to sync my Music library, Went well other than

    a little problem some of the Album art attached to the wrong Album, that occasionally happens with most media players especially when syncing large amounts of media.

    You may have an issue with importing from Itunes. I imported mine from an external HD, you may have to add media in smaller groups. I do not use iTunes so Hopefully someone who usee itunes can chime in..

    DoubleTwist

    DoubleTwist works great for me. The infamous "DVD John" is a part of this open source project.

    A feature of DoubleTwist that I haven't seen mentioned here is the ability to import YouTube videos into the DoubleTwist client, and then load them onto your Pre (or iPod or whatever media player you are using). I give a definite thumbs up to DoubleTwist.

    WinAmp for me. What's strange is I don't see where they transfer the songs in Pre when I'm on USB mode, but the songs are there when unplugged. Maybe I'm missing, but it works well.
