    Any recommendations for a free or paid alternative to iTunes would be greatly appreciated. Looking to manage music on a pc and sync to iPhone & iPad. Thx.

    Why not iTunes, since it's probably the best app for the job?

    Do you have lots of 24/96 files? I can't see any other reason to use something else unless you want high quality parametric EQs and whatnot. Even then, iTunes is what you use to sync to your iDevices.

    CopyTrans used to work on my old iPod touch 1G, but I haven't used it in ages.

    WinAmp allows you to manage music, but not video, podcasts and audiobooks (unless downloaded in a readable audio file, which would get added as a song), apps, or settings.

    Just looking for an alternative music manager. iTunes tends to not transfer songs here and there to my iPhone/iPad even though the song is in a synced playlist. Just testing the "music manager" waters so to speak. And why all the !exclamation! Points on songs for no rhyme or reason?

    Typically means the file is not where iTunes thinks it is, and therefore, cannot be found.

    The exclamation marks indicate the underlying music file can't be located. This can happen when you delete or move music files or if they're located on a drive that isn't mounted at the time you launch iTunes. Before you look for another app, why not look for resolutions to issues you're having?

    No, not for no reason. If you take the time to troubleshoot problems, you'll find that they're usually not caused by the app itself, but by user error or other factors.

    I'm not here to argue that fact. Just looking for info on an iTunes alternative. Thanks.
