[SOLVED] Sync play count with iPod Nano

Post by gregorywest » Fri Dec 07, 2018 2:41 pm

I have an iPod Nano, what I want to do is sync with it all my 'New' Music so I can play it in the car. The problem I am having is the total number of plays is synced back to MMW. And the play list is updated. This all works good. The problem comes up because the automatic play list is not being synced back to the iPod. Thus removing the already played songs and loading new ones up.

Any thought on how I could get this working?

Which version of MediaMonkey?

So:
1) Play Counts are being synced from the iPod to MediaMonkey?
2) Played files aren't being removed, even though they would no longer be part of the AutoPlaylist as they've been played?
3) New (unplayed) files aren't being synced?

I am pretty sure if is the latest release, MMW 4. Will have to look up build tomorrow. Just checked the version is MMW 4.1.21.1875

As for your three points, Yes, the play counts are being updated, and yes, the played files are not being removed, and new files not being synced. And by new, I mean newly added to the auto-playlist.

Hi,
I would suggest that you update to latest 4.1.23.1881+ from viewtopic.php?f=6&t=54426&sd=d and try to re sync.

OK upgraded to 4.1.23 - 1881

Still does not seem to be syncing properly. Also I noticed that the playlist I am syncing is not showing up in the NANO's playlist folder at all. Should it?

Is it possible I am setting up the sync wrong? I am going to the playlist in MMW clicking once on the playlist I want to sync, then doing a right mouse click and go to "Send To -> iPod Nano (Synchronize)

That won't sync Play Counts. For that you need to do a full sync. Setup what you want synced in the Device Profile and then start the sync from it.

What do you mean set up what I want to sync in the device profile?

How do I do that?
