I started using Winamp when i got my S3 and it was always kind of annoying but i dealt with it. Now its ****ing me the **** off. It is having trouble recognizing my extra SD card where i have been putting my music. Also, sometimes it wont even recognize my phone. But usually once it recognizes my device it shows both the S3 Phone and the S3 SD card. Why is it not recognizing my SD card?

Is there a better music player I should use that can also easily transfer all my itunes and itunes playlists so i do not need to re make them and re upload all my music into the library and organize it? I am not good with all this itunes mp3 stuff so i really do need the easiest thing that can convert itunes to something that can go on the S3.

I've never synced my whole music library to a phone myself, but lots of people recommend DoubleTwist as an iTunes replacement for Android.

I personally use Google Play Music which allows me to stream any song from my whole library as well as playlists on my PC, but I'm not sure how it handles iTunes playlists as I don't own any iOS devices.

I'm sure others here can give you a better answer.

I don't even bother with software.
It's easy to just plug phone into computer, or connect with Bluetooth, either way you then just open up the phones folder, and the copy and past music from your music folder on computer to the folder on the phone. Works for me using all phones I've had. The phones music app will load the music no matter what.
I guess I should have stated the folder that is the sd card. or the folder of built in memory on the phone, either or. I go with sd card.

This. Not sure why people insist on using software to do such trivial things. All they do is complicate a process that's stupid easy. You open a folder, copy/move from a computer to the phone (another folder, literally). When you want to play off the phone, plug in a speaker/headphones or open the phone in a folder and play. *shrug*

Absolutely.

For instance, there were several defective 32GB and 64GB Sandisk cards a short while ago. Some of them didn't show any issues until they were used in an S3 interestingly enough.

Can't believe Winamp is still around, why not use some other alt software and see if it still gives the same problems.

I didn't think I'd ever like streaming my library, but I actually love Google Play Music.... it'll automatically upload all your songs, and then on your device - with 4G speeds, you can stream it at the highest quality. Also, it automatically caches/stores what you play often, and you can choose what you want to be saved to your device....

Has been working really well for me! ... hope this helps!

I second the Google Music. Its free up to 20,000 songs!!!! Plus it works really well. They just started doing automatic playlist. That really helped me. I have 10,000 songs and some are over looked by me. Those playlists have helped me get more out of what I have and its automatic.
