A lot of alternatives: iTunes Alternatives and Similar Software - AlternativeTo.net

I'm not sure how many of those support syncing, though. I wouldn't be surprised if you can only do it with iTunes...

MediaMonkey works very well. If you need to pull other files off, SharePod is free and works great.

I use a paid product Sync your iPod with Windows Media Player . It's a plugin for WMP.

Winamp is also a good alternative..I've used it once and it works great.

Did it recognise your ipod or did you have to play around a bit?
Thanks for input.
