iTunes automatically cuts off comments at 255 characters (or pretty close to that). That's the maximum length of a string that is allowed in the iPod's database files (the "Location" field should be...

Appearantly, the new 3.1 firmware also breaks "Live updating" Smart Playlists on the iPod too.

Again, I recommend *not* upgrading.

The Play Counts file will be different regardless of whether you use iTunes or not, so anything using that info won't be correct anymore. mlipod is expecting 16 bytes per song in there, and now there...

Several changes were made to the structure of the iTunesDB files. The one that causes mlipod to crash is the addition of a third MHSD. This is a new "Data Set" which is basically like a new "library"...

"Do Not Disconnect" is not an error. It flashes that while it's connected to the computer. When you "Eject" the iPod, it'll change to "Okay to Disconnect".

Basically, it's warning you not to...

No, iTunes sticks all the Album art in the ArtworkDB file (and in the *.thmb files and such). Near as I can figure, the Photo doesn't use the art in the ID3 tags at all.

The order can be changed, but there's probably no support for it directly in mlipod. And even if it did support it, it's not perfect anyway.

Basically, it's possible to change the order of the...

Unless you have really screwy tags, no, you don't. At least, you're certainly not supposed to.

Where are you seeing "artist - title" at, exactly?

You don't see "artist - title" on your iPod. Not using ml_ipod or iTunes or any other iPod program.
