Re: iPod manager Reply #4150 – 2020-07-16 00:16:42 Quote from: musicmusic on 2020-07-03 18:14:30It does include comments (though on older iPod models it will only be the first ~500 characters). One reason is that you should be able to create smart playlists based on values of that field. Another possible reason is that iTunesDB is used by iTunes when viewing the iPod's content.However, you can define a remapping for the field in iPod manager preferences, so you shouldn't need to retag your files to stop it being written to the iPod's database.Thanks!The thing I wondered specifically about the iPod's firmware caring for the Comment field (should have remembered to mention this first time around...) is if it's used while the iPod itself is in use, and not just when connected to a computer and managed? That is, if t counts in the data limitations that make up the stock firmwares' + hardware's maximum supported track amounts? I mean that one for instance how a 5.5 gen (64MB logic board version) has a track count limit of approximately 50k tracks, which, if I'm not mistaken, is how many tracks the stock firmware can handle at once, and is directly tied to the amount of RAM present on the device and the size of the library database.Btw, there seems to be conflicting information floating around regarding this. As you must be quite an expert on their workings, can you confirm whether this limit is on how many tracks a given iPod can (reliably) hold in general, or just on how many tracks it can queue up when shuffling?Field remapping uses Foobar's title formatting code, I'd presume?
