What are alternatives for iTunes with an iPod Classic?

srenee April 28, 2010

I don’t like the iTunes environment too much. What other site can I sync my old iPod with? I hate to buy a new one, when I have a 30 GB one that holds 2000 songs on it, already organized. But I’m having too many problems with iTunes.

    I will suggest MediaMonkey is the best one you can get.

    If you're running a Windows System like: XP, Vista, or 7 then you could get a freeware version of Media Monkey or get the Gold Version that includes lifetime support and upgrades.

    It does .mp4, .mp3, .wav and with the Gold licensed version it will perform a bunch of track and album meta-data functions including tagging and album art as well as lyrics downloading for your tunage and a ton more. I got it, I like it and the .mp4's run on iPod and render album art without a hitch. It converts between audio formats impeccably allowing you to hit your .mp3 player, cd player, and iPod/iPhone all from one tool and it has an extensive and configurable media manager.

    Oh, it also synchronizes to your media devices and recognizes a great number to boot. It acts allot like Windows Media Player in that when it syncs to a media device it optimizes your media for the best possible playback on that device.

    WinAmp is another great alternative to manage your iPod. It's free and is a complete digital player. However, I miss the Remember Playback Position feature in that.

    SharePod is also another good one. It's open-source as well. You can see screenshots here //www.makeuseof.com/tag/manage-your-ipod-with-sharepod/.

    You have a few interesting ones, I've selected these two:

    aTunes (http://www.atunes.org/)
    songbird (http://www.getsongbird.com/)

    They both have a nice interface, lots of interesting options, and offer the possibility to synchronize almost any device you connect, no matter whether iPod or not.
