I have confirmed that this does the trick. Clear out all of your iTunes synced music, then follow these steps. All of my music/podcasts/playlists are synced up from MM. I am having some issues with cover art, but that's a small price to pay for this stop-gap.dbdog wrote:FYI here is a recent post from the Winamp forum:
"1. Before starting, REMOVE all the songs from your iPod using iTunes. 2. Start foobar2000 and sync songs to your iPod with foo_dop as usual. 3. When you're done, start up iPhoneBrowser (or SSH/Mobile Terminal) and in the left hand pane, navigate to /User/Media/iTunes_Control/iTunes 4. In the right hand pane, delete the iTunesCDB file (NOT the iTunesDB file). 5. Start up iTunes and allow it to find your iPod. If you look in the music section, you should see all the files synced using foo_dop. 6. Close iTunes. 7. You must carry out steps 3-6 whenever adding/removing songs with foo_dop
(While reading just replace "foo_dop" by "ml_ipod" and "foobar2000" by "winamp"...
So by the looks of it both Foobar and Winamp can sync using this awkward method. Maybe MediaMonkey can work this way too. I'll try it tomorrow.
Of course, this requires a jailbroken device to remove the file (unless anyone has another way) - but a jailbreak is a fairly simple process as well.
