    I can't seem to add songs to my ipod's directory in itunes. Either from my mp3 folder or the itunes library? Is it possible to just drag and drop from my mp3 folder since I dislike itunes very much? I did that with my nano and loved it! Any ideas?

    no, iTouch has no HDD mode, it has to go through iTunes.

    see if there will be a hack for this in the future.

    Is it bad that I'm very close to taking it back because of that? I love apple's ability to do cool things but they suck.....

    I was the biggest Apple hater for the longest time, I know why you are doing this, but it really is worth it to get iTunes just for music transfer. I still use Winamp to listen to music and I even use Creative's software for burning CDs... to be honest, I don't use iTunes for anything but sending files over. It takes a few hours at the most to get everything perfect (as long as your videos are in the right formats and you have .mp3 instead of .wma), so not that much time is wasted.

    I have a bunch of videos I used with my Treo. It's just so much easier being able to do what you want when you want to. I will give it sometime like you suggested though and I'm sure I'll enjoy it much more than, thanks!

    iTunes isn't that bad, as long as it's set to not organize your music automatically, it won't create duplicate files of your music so all you have to do is drag and drop into it. There's really no reason to dislike it, outside of maybe the space and resources it takes up in your system, which isn't a whole lot.

    Its a crappy piece of app on windows (altho indeed very nice on OSX). My newly purchased powerhorse PC can run anything, with GeForce 7900GS, 3G RAM, 320G HDD, AMD athlon 64x2, and this iTunes still give me black out. unbelievable.

    How do you turn off this organize thing? And how do you drag and drop? It won't allow me to do so?

    preference->advanced->general-> uncheck "copy file into iTunes music folder...."

    drag and drop? you choose the music you want to transfer in iTunes library, then drag it onto your iTouch's name in the left panel of iTunes.
