How to Sync the Samsung Galaxy S with iTunes

You can sync your Samsung Galaxy S smartphone with iTunes, using third-party software designed to enable synchronization capabilities for non-Apple devices. As of June 2011, the iTunes music management software is designed to only sync with Apple devices like the iPod and iPhone. You can circumvent this with software that spoofs the user agent of an Apple device, enabling you to transfer your music files to any device you'd like, including the Samsung Galaxy S.

Step

Download and install the iTunes Agent software from ita.sourceforge.net.

Step

Connect the Galaxy S to your computer using the appropriate USB cable.

Step

Slide down the Android notification drawer once the device is connected to your computer and select "USB Connected," then tap "Mount."

Step

Click "Start," then "Computer" and double-click the Galaxy S device icon.

Step

Click "File" and select "New," then "Folder." Type "Music" as the name for the folder.

Step

Right-click the iTunes Agent notification icon located beside the clock in the system tray, and select "Preferences."

Step

Click the "New" button.

Step

Type "Galaxy S" as the name of the device and select "iTunes" from the "Synchronization Pattern" drop-down menu.

Step

Click the "Choose" button beside the "Music folder" text box and select the "Music" folder you created earlier as the destination for synced files.

Step

Click the "Create" button beside the "Recognize by folder/file" text box, and again select the "Music" folder you created earlier.

Step

Click "Save," and then click "Close."

Step

Click "Start," type "iTunes" in the search box at the bottom of the menu, then press "Enter."

Step

Click the triangle beside the "My Devices" folder in the "Playlists" section of the iTunes sidebar to display the "Galaxy S" playlist option.

Step

Drag and drop music that you want to sync to your Galaxy S from the iTunes library to the Galaxy S playlist.

Step

Right-click the iTunes Agent notification icon in the system tray and select "Synchronize devices" to sync your Galaxy S with iTunes.
