ml_ipod Uploaded music not visible on iPod (iPhone 3G 16gb)


Hoping someone can help.

I tried the ml_ipod plugin for the first time today since I'm desperate to get away from iTunes and have used Winamp for 10+ years. I'm running version 3.08 of the plugin, with the "patch" version 6 installed too.

I can see my iPhone in the Media Library listed as "iPod" under Devices. However, when I click on it I cannot see any of the music already uploaded via iTunes.

This aside, the main issue is that I seem to be able to add songs to the iPhone successfully (from playlist, right click songs>send to>iPod). The transfer window seems to genuinely copy files over USB. When transfer is complete, I click the "Eject" button and load the iPod app on my iPhone. Unfortunately, none of the uploaded music is visible - all that can be seen is the music once uploaded via iTunes.

I cleared my playlists in iTunes and re-synched the phone (effectively clearing all music uploaded via iTunes) and then tried copying music over via Winamp once more, however this process made no difference.

Does anyone have any idea what is going on? Winamp definitely seems to upload the music onto the phone, but the iPod app cannot see what has been added.

I followed the steps for forcing a re-read of the iPod database but the only one that seemed applicable for iPhones was to restart the device, which I did and to no avail.

All suggestions welcome,

What software version is running on the iPhone? If it's 3.X or higher, you're screwed. ml_ipod can only transfer with iPhone OS v2.X releases.

Hey, any news as to whether the new FW 3.X for iPHone is under development? I'm a new iphone user and was banking on the winamp ml_ipod plugin instead of the dreaded itunes.

Thanks, Philip

IPhone 3.x and same problem. I loved plug in. Exactly what I'm looking for but it is not working for me. An update for iphone3.x would be nice.
