Drive letter problem

Hi.

When I connected my ipod to my PC to update it in winamp today it loaded onto drive "G:" instead of it's usual "F:" because I had another peripheral attached. The problem is that mlipod thought it was a new ipod and reordered all my playlists. Then when I hit the sync button, it wanted to delete all 5000+ songs and videos on my ipod.

Very annoying because now I can't sync properly. Is this a bug or is there a way to prevent this?

Thanks.

I unchecked "Delete existing tracks that would not otherwise be synced" and that fixes the deleting all my tracks problem but I had to manually reorder all my playlists.

Sorry. Can't see any reason for this. I regularly have my iPod as different drives, never had that problem.
Maybe just an unlucky coincidence???

I'm not sure why either. When I connected it the "new ipod" screen popped up which was odd seeing as I had the same ipod connected yesterday and it synced normally. The only difference was the drive letter.

I'll let you know if it happens again.

Thanks Abu.

Actually, the "New iPod" screen should only come up if it either does not find a iTunesDB on the drive or the ml_ipod.ini hasn't been initialized. So, it sounds as if the eject last time went somehow wrong, not all files completely written before you physically plugged it off...
Impossible to say for sure
