I am looking for a free program that runs on OS X that is similar to iTunes, but for MP3 players. Any suggestions?

UPDATE: I have used Coby Media Manager. It doesn't work for me because it won't keep the artists, albums, etc.

Similar to iTunes in which way(s)? superuser.com/questions/how-to-ask –  techie007 Jul 15 '11 at 22:58
    
In that you can manage the songs' artists, albums, etc... –  daviesgeek Jul 15 '11 at 23:10

"Manage" them how? Rename, Sort, Tag, Catalogue, Rate, Download, Buy, Send to Device(s)? All of these, none of these, more than these? :) Which MP3 player(s)? –  techie007 Jul 15 '11 at 23:21
    
All of those, except for Buy and Download. The MP3 player that I'm using is a Coby MP-620. Actually, several of them. –  daviesgeek Jul 15 '11 at 23:24

I would suggest Songbird:

It's very much like iTunes except that it's OpenSource (based on Firefox). There are also some additional features like browsing and downloading the Web for MP3s. And you can even extend its functionality with plugins.

Thanks so much. This was exactly what I was looking for. Especially the ability to mount the MP3 player and manage it like iTunes. Thanks you SOOOO much!!!! –  daviesgeek Aug 15 '11 at 17:36

Whenever you are speaking about a program and the word alternative is in the same sentence, check out www.alternativeto.net.
