Ipod Classic Problem
So I have used a buddies Ipod Video gen 5 or 5.5 with no problems. I tested out RR using his before I went and bought one of my own to see if I liked how it worked, and loved it.
Now I hook in my ipod classic and all of the Ipod options come up in the library browser but when I click on artist, album, genre or playlist the next directory is empty.
I went into winamp to make sure that i could play the songs off the ipod through it and see if there is any problem seeing the song/album names, and it all worked perfectly.
So I after I play a few songs I close winamp. When I start rr back up there are a whole bunch of wierd filenames on my playlist cue, not even words just letter combinations. I play one and it is my Ipod list, all of my songs. But I cannot tell which is which of course b/c they are coming up w/ a name like azxcidk and zckkdhsi. I tried to go back into access my ipod lists and still empty. Anyone else have this problem or know how to fix it??
is no one else using an Ipod Classic
The way it works is that RR should read the Tag info from the iPod and load them onto the playlist so you'd not see those file names.. the weird filenames you're seeing are courtesy of Apple renaming all of the files into the ipod (probably in an attempt of having people copying songs fro the device to the PC). If you can't see/load the files from the ipod onto RR, there's a possibility they may have changed their library format and that it'd require code update in order for it to work like in older ipods. Best test is to try your buddy's ipod on your carpc, and try your ipod in his carpc (if he has one). That would define if the problem is RR or the Ipod
I can confirm this happens with an old (although recently reformatted/restored to FAT32 format) 3G Ipod as well.

Waiting confirmation if it works now.
so I can take that the info I sent worked out well?
if it doesnt work can we go back to using an older version of Itunes and have it work?
Are You Nathan ? I emailed "Nathan" back with a beta version to try.. haven't heard back yet.
I am nathan but I did not get an email from you, I checked my spam folder and everything. Can you resend??
I simply replied it -- I think f'in Gmail doesn't accept zip files.
try sending it to [email protected]
let me know when you send it and if that doesn't work for some reason I will have you send it to a buddy and i can get it from him...
