    I'm looking for a FREE alternative to iTunes. I know some of you use them, what's the best? Basically, I want to be able to drag and drop regular MP3s onto my 4GB nano. Giving it the ability to transfer music and files to other machines would be nice too, but it's not required.

    I googled a bit, but I really need opinions and experience here.

    I downloaded the beta of the new Windows Media Player a while back, and now it always tries to sync with my iPod whenever it's connected.

    I've never tried it though.

    I'm trying out Yamipod right now. It seems to work ok, but it also seems unstable and buggy.

    What are you looking for that iTunes doesn't provide?

    iTunes will transfer the music you want, nice and simple, and it's stable for everyone except drippy. And you can use third party aps (or Windows Explorer) to pull music off of it.

    No hassles. Yamipod is about as simple as it can get, from what I've seen of it so far. I just erased the iPod, and downloaded 800 songs onto it about 3 minutes after I downloaded the program. No setup required at all. I've had to use iTunes in the past, and it's clunky and crap IMO. The only reason I need a program is because I'm borrowing my girl's iPod, and I'm not getting iTunes anywhere near my computer.

    Glad it works for you though. It's just not for me.
