I'm looking for an iTunes alternative for my new iPod nano 6g.

I've used sharepod before but it doesn't work with the nano 6g—I can upload songs but they're not being recognized by the iPod database.

Any ideas on alternatives that work with the nano 6g?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Even though the list on media monkey says it works, if you dig deeper it works for 6G classic and up to 5G Nano. No 6G nano. sucks. – user3587 Feb 13 '11 at 11:28

Mediamonkey is a good alternative on Windows, the nano 6th gen is present in the list of compatible devices.

If you're using Windows, try DoubleTwist. (Not sure if it supports Apple products on OSX yet.)

looks like it works only for android devices? – gsharp Jan 9 '11 at 21:07
