Best way to keep music organised

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I've got an HTC Desire running Oxygen 2.2 ROM (Stock Gingerbread).

I'm looking for an easy to use program on my Windows PC to keep all my music managed and synced with my device.

I'd be happy with doubleTwist but it's being a little buggy for me and isn't pushing ID3 tags properly so the music apps on my phone are somewhat messy due to the music not being categorised.

What's the best way to keep music synced with my Android phone that gives me an easy method of editing ID3 tags and pushing them to the device correctly rolleyes.gif

Something similar to iTunes that isn't actually iTunes please.

I find iTunes actually slows down my PC... conspiracy theory in 3... 2... 1...

Thanks guys.

I've been in love with foobar2000. Use it with the ipod plugin.

http://www.foobar2000.org/

plugin:http://yuo.be/ipod.php

You can right click and edit tags, or do mass edits. You can also sync very easily.

Thanks.

Does the iPod plugin work with Android phones?

I've been using Winamp to automatically sync my music folder when plugged in but it doesn't delete files that I've deleted on my computer. Other then that it works OK.

Same here, although I first hated the UI its grown on me(on my computer at least, I just use the stock MIUI one on my phone). Otherwise, you can give doubletwist a go although I'd rather be a cheapskate and not pay for something tongue.gif

doubleTwist is free.

You only have to pay if you want airSync.

I have no idea how well it will work with a non windows phone, but I love the Zune music software. Not so much for videos though.

I probably do this in far too many steps, but I listen to my music on my pc with winamp, however for syncing I use doubletwist and airsync. But for tagging I use musicbrainz picard, which is excellent because it automagically recognizes the songs and tags them accordingly.
So yeah, a bit of a roundabout way, but it works for me :-)
