If someone else confirms that this seems a likely diagnosis on my part, I'll try and get some steps together...
That is a good idea.
How do we have start the test?

I too have this problem intermittently (with an iPod nano second gen). It's difficult to replicate as it only seems to happen some of the time. However, with a bit of experimenting, I currently believe that it only seems to fail to update play counts/time last played if I modified any song's rating on my iPod.

A good experiment (although I have not yet tried it) would be to modify the rating on the PC rather than iPod and see if that caused a sync failure. Basically, my working theory is that if any of the meta data of the songs in the database changes (other than play count and time) MM gets confused and gives up the whole process.

I've seen a few threads like this, so if we start trying to simplify the problem down to some defined repeatable steps that will help the bug fixers. If someone else confirms that this seems a likely diagnosis on my part, I'll try and get some steps together...

Same here, too, not only with my 2nd Gen Nano but also my G1. Using v3.0.6.1190 on WinXP SP3.

I have the same problem. :(

For your information:
- I am using a iPod Nana (4th Gen) with the lastest Firmware 1.0.3.
- I made the firmwareupdate on the PC of a Friend of mine, because he has iTunes installed on his PC.
- I have never installed iTunes.
- I am using MM v3.0.6.1190

Sorry for my poor emglish. But i hope you can help me to syn the playcounter.

Playcount and Ipod

I am starting to sync my ipod classic (160Gb) using MM (I prviously used iTunes).

By the moment in general all works fine (some cover and playlist problems solved or discussed in the forum).

The problem that i have is related to playcount: the songs played in the Ipod is not updated correctly in MM playcount (and also last played date.)

Any idea?

Thanks and regards
