Is there something wrong with the iPod support in RR when working with the ipod touch ?
Has anyone looked into TouchCopy? I just found it searching around and it seems to be perfect for what we would need. Plug your ipod in and within a few seconds its read and you can play songs on it no matter what computer its on. When you unplug the ipod the program automatically starts back into searching for it until Its plugged in again. If there is anyway we could have RR talk to this program to use as its player when they hit like a Ipod button in RR I think it would be awesome.
this is true i do belive this to be a fault if you are not running itunes or simalar in the background of rr
Isn't there a plugin for Winamp to make this work correctly?
Sounds like this may require some research then.. I didn't know there was no "disk mode" option for iPhone/iPodTouch .. that just makes me very angry...
If you can connect the iPhone/iPodTouch through the network or USB and map a drive for it, it may work with the existing implementation.. but that may be tricky.. here's something that may lead to a solution..
was there any update on this? i plugged my iphone into windows and it does not show up as a drive. i saw the two programs in the link guino posted but i dont think they map the phone as a usb drive. is there any workaround to get iphones or ipod touches working with RR?
Not really. It is possible to make a plugin to browse and play the iphone/ipod touch from the carpc. This will DEFINITELY require iTunes to be installed and running and may even require using iTunes as the player (which would make sense since it would already have to be loaded for the plugin to work).
i am guessing the winamp plugin is of no use either, then?
iTunes is NOT required to pull this off....just need one of the ipod libraries that supports the ipod touch. Winamp for one, has a plugin that does exactly that.
