foo_pod - Foobar2000 meets the iPod Reply #25 – 2004-03-01 22:07:31 QuoteAddition: iTunes doesn't modify the songs before copying them to the iPod. It may modify them when you add them to the iTunes library itself or when you change the tags using iTunes, but the process of synching the iPod just copies the files over in their current state. It's the iTunesDB that controls the rest.This does not make sense. I have an MP3 file tagged with APEv2 and ID3v1. I then transfer it to the iPod using iTunes - I did not enter any tag editing facility in iTunes or anything. When I double click on the file on the iPod disk drive (Not using foo_pod), it now only has the ID3v1 tag intact.
