Media Monkey is a big full functional media player that allows you to do everything you can possibly do in iTunes, it's a great alternative as well. iDevice syncing is enabled and using MediaMonkey you can easily transfer your music at ease.
Most Media players need iTunes installed because iTunes comes with special drivers that give permission to access your Apple device and move files from there. But since the whole point of this article is to sync songs without installing iTunes, here is another way.
You will have to download iTunes from the Apple website, but you will not have to install it. You can delete it later as you need iTunes only temporarily just to get certain drivers.
- Download the iTunes.exe file from apple.com and save the file in any folder
- After the download is completed, open the folder in which you saved the file. Right click on the file and rename the ending ( suffix ) from .exe to .zip
- After changing the name, open the now .zip file and find the two files AppleMobileDeviceSupport.msi and QuickTime.msi. Extract both files to your desktop.
- Install these two files into your computer.
Now you can delete or do whatever you want with the downloaded iTunes file once you have extracted the two files in step 3. Have Fun!
