I have a function request which may sound strange: is it possible to add a function to transfer music files to certain drive letter with manually specified iPod model and then rebuild the iTunes database automatically?
The reason I desire this feature is that I have an iPod 2nd Gen from 2002 with a 10GB hard disk. The hard disk had some bad blocks so I replaced it with a CF card.
I managed to restore the firmware to the CF card and the iPod could recognize it as a HDD, but for some complicated reasons, the flash card/SSD modified iPod 1nd~3rd Gen would not sync with iTunes by FireWire connection.
Some of these FireWire-only iPods users have discovered that iPod mini can be used as a CF card reader, so they can sync their music files to iPod mini and then put the CF card back into their FireWire iPods, but this method involves disassembling both iPods and rewriting the firmware every time.
I know that iPod Manager automatically recognizes iPod device and it's model, and then transfer the music file to the iPod disk, then create or rebuild the iTunesDB and iTunesControl database files.
Is it possible to have iPod Manager perform this series of operations on a manually specified drive letter? In this way, I can simply put the CF card into the normal card reader and transfer music files.
