Looking for a MP3-sync and media player.

Hello sirs and misses,

I'm in dire need of an application that plays music, movies and what not and can also synchronize my mp3 player, an YP-U3 from Samsung.

I've been manually adding music in a big Music folder on the Samsung. It takes much time to look for what I want to put versus what's already there. If I could just put everything I want in a Sync tab or something in an application and everything works automatically, that'd be swell as fuck. Maybe I want to edit the tags if they're wrong or missing stuff.

I know iTunes probably does that. Is it customizable enough for a nerd and light enough for a 4 year old computer? I'd have to try it in Foobar, any tutorials and shit to help?

For music I just use Winamp 5 with a skin I downloaded. It takes pretty long to open on bad days. Not really good at synchronizing, or maybe I haven't looked at the right place.

    iTunes won't sync your MP3 player, as it's not one of those supported natively (a list consisting of a number of 2000-vintage players, the Motorola ROKR, and iPods). There might be a mass storage plugin or another application to work with that player, but it won't sync out of the box. I'm deeply fond of iTunes - it's my music application of choice - but if you don't want to do things the way Apple suggests, you may run into real or perceived problems.

    From the programs you've suggested, you're running Windows, I presume? It may be worth giving Windows Media Player a look. Opinions are polarised about it, but it can't hurt to load it up and give it a play, especially considering that you've probably already got it installed.

    I'll look up some info about iTunes to see if I can use that.

    Yes I'm on windows. No I won't use Windows Media Player.

    Try Songbird, check to see if there's a plug-in for your MP3 player.

    It uses UMS (USB Mass Storage) instead of MTP (Media Transfer Protocol), so it acts just like a flash drive.
    Songbird should have a plugin for that. MediaMonkey is pretty nice too.

    If you're looking for a media player with a fancy interface, try XBMC. It's not just for the Xbox anymore!
