I can not sync music with iPod
I have the latest winamp 5 full.
After transfer mp3 music to iPod is not playable
Connect the ipod with itunes and see that the music is as "unknown format" (marked in yellow on the disk usage bar)
I have to "restore" the iPod so that it is empty and transfer the music with the damn itunes.
Why not work with winamp ipod plugin?
I have an ipod classic 160 gb updated.
Is there any solution?
I had thought of using the plugin "mlipod" but the author says he does not develop it anymore:
"For the last couple of years, I (abu) Have Been the only one who Contributed to the code base of ml_iPod. Most of the time it was fun, but not any more. Why? Due to Apples's product philosophy.
With every new generation of iPods or iPhone firmware, They invented a new protection scheme forces all users to That use iTunes, until, a crack is found. Sometimes it's easy to crack the protection, Sometimes It Takes weeks or months. In Any case it Takes a lot of time and effort to include support for newer devices in ml_iPod. And, of course, I always need one of the newest devices at hand, for testing and reverse engineering.
Well, from now on, I will not buy the newest toys With The newest Apple protection scheme, and as long as nobody else steps in for development, there will be NO SUPPORT for new iPod / iPhone devices That Contain new encryption, new protection , new Apple DRM or whatever the guys invent next.
Their product philosophy simply Does not Fit at all to an OSS project like ml_iPod. That's sad, I know, But Apple does so much to make it hard or impossible to manage events Their Toys without iTunes. They want to force you to use iTunes, Because They Have Control over your way more listening and buying habits that Way. Hey, They make so much money with the iTunes store, of course They want to trick you in. That's the game. Apple's just a company That wants to make money, like everybody else."
Itunes sucks for many reasons.
I never thought I should be FORCED to use it, if so I would not have bought the iPod.
I can not believe Apple, with its empire of millions and millions of dollars continue to have crap like itunes instead of doing something like winamp.
