Well, I just bought the 5.5G 80GB for making videos work, so I doubt that people will be willing to sponsor a classic now :-)
Maybe we can get it to work with some help. I need one or two classic owner who are willing to send me some files. In particular I need the iTunesDB from the device after it is written by iTunes (and works on the iPod). Then connect it to ml_ipod, eject it -> now the iPod does not work any more? Send me the new iTunesDB. Restore the one from iTunes (saved earlier). Now it works again?
Yes, very bad news. I'm starting to experience some iTunes Stockholm syndrome. It downloads podcasts! Blech. It sucks, still. I'm shocked a media player/ipod manager can kill resources so brutally, especially after seeing how well ml_ipod/winamp does it. And it's dramatically *over*simplified, but that's another story. (I just want some basic functionality plz? Live folder updating?)
Anyways, my point is, I'm game. I'll send you whatever you want. Just tell me what, how, and where I can find the files. Just plz, bring me back my ml_ipod!
Question, though: Why don't you just return the 5.5g, pay the 10% restocking fee and get the new classic? I think they're definitely worth it. Or, buy the classic, preserve it in it's new-like state, and just use it to get ml_ipod working. Then return it, and get your money back. I'm sure ml_ipod users (this one included) would donate the cash to pay the restocking fees. Just some thoughts.
