Could somebody explain me how to add covers for my IPod classic 5G. I can't figure out where to place the covers and what to type into source script.

So, the cover is either embedded in the files themselves (using a program like mp3tag), or you'll have external image files.  Those image files should be named in accordance with the album art section of the display settings in the preference window.  Most commonly, you'll want them to be titled Folder.jpg or Folder.png depending on the file type.  As long as foobar correctly displays the album art, foo_dop will correctly put it in the iPod.

As soon as somebody can try out, please let us know, what the situation is with the newly released iPods.
Thats a really good question. I'm waiting on my iPod Touch 4th G. and it would be perfect if I could fill it with foo_dop.
Well, touch 4th gen won't work at the moment, and the new nano and shuffle are a mystery. I will probably buy a new touch so I should have more info on that in a week or so.

One little problem: when I send tracks to my iPhone it adds the cover art fine, in most cases. My artwork is inside each album folder, and it's named like this: %artist% - %album%(.jpg). So this is what I entered in the preferences.
However, I have many 7 inch albums, whose %album% tag is whateveralbum 7" , but since Windows doesn't accept the " symbol, I replace in the artwork filename with two '. So naturally, the artwork doesn't get added to the tracks.
Well, you can use $replace in the iPod manager's preferences - so something like $replace(%album artist% - %album%,",'',*,.) should do it (do the other invalid chars too).

@musicmusic: please add support for multiplays - I use foo_dop with audioscrobbler plugin and it hurts my stats your plugin aleays reports 1 play of given unique track, no matter how many times I played that tracks. This is bit frustrating
I am sure we have been through this before; anyway there's nothing I can do on my side.

Hello musicmusic,

is this already firm, that foo_dop will not work with the 4G iPod Touches?
Anyhow, I received my shipping confirmation from Apple today, so should be able to test it on monday. If I can be of any help for the development of foo_dop I would be more than happy to do this. Please just let me know, what I should do.

If you're up for jailbreaking it, and au fait with the terminal, there's a workaround that I'd be 95% sure would work. It works on iOS4.x iPhones, including my iPhone 4.
Jailbreak, install OpenSSH, make sure you change the mobile and root passwords for security(!), then SSH into the phone as root, and edit /System/Library/Lockdown/Checkpoint.xml
Look for the DBVersion key. It'll probably be set at 5. Decrement that value to 4 and save.

You should now be able to upload files to your iPod!

Hm, I'm not so familiar with the jailbreak and plan to keep the device un-jailbreaked. My hopes are, that musicmusic will update foo_dop to also work with the newest iPod generation, as soon as they are available.

Will supporting the new iPod generation involve the same efforts to also support the iPhone4? In other words will this mean that once the new iPod generation is supported the iPhone4 will also be supported? Or are there additional difficulties in supporting the iPhone4?
I got so used to using this excelent software with my 3GS I'm really looking forward to using it with my new iPhone4 as well.

Thank you very much in advance!

For those who are interested, there is another software that can synchronise with iphone 4 here, if you don't want to use itunes while waiting for foo_dop to be able to sync with iphone 4.

So I'm getting this problem when I try to remove tracks from my iPod Touch.

error readings itunesdb : I/O Error: AFCFileRefOpen returned: 2 Path was /iTunes_Control/iTunes/iTunesCDB

After I try to remove tracks, I can't do anything. I can't add tracks until I restart FB2K. And I understand that you've gotten this issue before, but I don't know how you solved it. Please help me!

I just got a new ipod (gen 6), and they use DB version 5. Hopefully there will be a workaround like the Touch or an update for the plugin

How can I delete the songs on my iPod touch 1g? When clicking on File --> iPod --> Manage Contents I can only remove playlists but not delete the songs listed at iPod. Also, right clicking on a song and then choosing open file location does cause any reaction. I do not have any free drive space so I need a way to delete the files on my iPod touch before uploading new playlists.

Goto File -> iPod -> Load Library
You will then get a playlist with all the contents of the iPod. Now locate the tracks you want to remove, right-click, and from the iPod menu select "Remove from iPod" (from memory).

Can I use foo_dop with walkman on the future?
I think walkman support is easy than iPod support.
Because walkman can D&D transmission.
It mean walkman can play mp3 file that simply put usb disk folder.

I would guess not with this component  aka post 1  "This is a IPOD component"  you require a Walkman one .

I hate having to use crappy iTunes since it doesn't really sort the music the way I want it.

My iPod is practically new, un-jailbroken (atm) and at iOS 4.1...
I can cope with the terminal once there's a jailbreak, as long as some instructions are provided.

thanks frogworth and musicmusic for your help on the artwork issue. Both suggestions sounded like they would work to me, however they didn't, I don't know why.

I fixed it by using this string in the ipod manager preferences: $replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,*)

Well the error is a protocol related error (bad header). I'm not really sure why it would happen, [a href='index.php?act=findpost&pid=716100']someone else had the same issue[/a], but I don't know if he resolved it. But there are a few things there to check. If you can try from another computer (that doesn't have exactly the same software i.e. firewall etc.) that would be a good first step.

I DO have the new iPod touch 4G. Is there anything I can do to help you?

Well I have mine now and I have it working. However you will need to 'borrow' iPhoneCalc.dll (just copy to fb2k dir) from MediaMonkey for database signing because I don't have any other solution for it (and well it doesn't exactly look like original code anyway...). Anyway I'll do some testing and probably release a new build over the weekend.

They still have not fixed British English though, I wonder why this message is logged Apple?
Code: [Select]
Thu Sep 23 19:34:00 unknown lockdownd[17] <Error>: 00681000 copy_sort_sections: Could not URL for MLSections.plist

If anyone with a new nano or shuffle can PM or e-mail me the output of Shift + File/iPod/View raw properties then I can get a better idea if anything else needs to be done for support for those..

Alright I'll look into it, but if there are any good options not already mentioned feel free to let me know.

musicmusic: I didn't get the part with iPhoneCalc.dll.. I have a iPod Touch 4th Gen and tried what you mentionned above and it didn't work. Installed latest version of fb, latest version of your plugin, installed MediaMonkey and copied iPhoneCalc.dll to fb dir. Is it supposed to be working with the new iPod touch once all that is done? Because I get this error: DB Version 5 is not supported. Write operations are disabled.

I guess I'll wait for a new version that fully support the new iPod Touch then?
Anyway, thanks for your hard work. I've used it with an older model and never had a single problem.

OK, I've put up version 0.6.8.4, it should work OK with iPod touch 4G and iPhone 4 in combination with iPhoneCalc.dll. iPhoneCalc.dll must be from current version of MediaMonkey (3.2.2.1300), only the version of the DLL with SHA-1 55ae84fc032d8fc7041d793ee0a8f874e65b65c0 will be accepted. Copy it to your foobar2000 directory.

Nano 6G is not supported at the moment.

Awesome!  Thanks for the 0.6.8.4 update.  It seems to work just fine with my iPhone 4 running iOS 4.1.  I went ahead and uploaded the correct iPhoneCalc.dll so that others don't need to get MediaMonkey to get it.

Likewise, no problems with my iPhone 4 running OS 4.1 - brilliant work again, musicmusic - thanks so much - I've been having a nightmare using damned iTunes for the past month! :-(
