device incompatibility work-around - virtual device

Post by abrazor » Sat Jun 10, 2006 6:40 am

As I mentioned in another post, I recently bought a Iriver u10 MP3/MP4 player. It is a 2 gig play for sure device but cannot succesful sync with MM. I can send files there but it doesnt adjust the database. According to Jiri it won't be happening any time soon.

so, I have an idea for those people who can't sync.

I would like a script that would sync a folder of my choice in my PC with a playlist that I choose. Why?

You see, at the moment I have an autoplaylist I like for my player and I choose Send/Copy To/(folder I have set up) then I need to open the software for my player and use that software to load the songs. But every time I need to delete the songs in the folder then retransfer. It would be just that little much easier if I could autosync the autoplaylist with the folder.

Is there a way to do this?

What would be really groovy is if there was a virtual folder that loads in the little pulldown menu of plugin devices and could autosync when I start, and I can easily right click and choose send to for it.

Abrazor, have you checked my Virtual CD Plugin (My Fan Page).
It Acts like a Standalone drive and can be used in Synching?

Yes Peke, I tried that. But it is recognised as a CD drive which is a component of the computer so it doesn't come up in the device sync menu. I tried putting the files into it and that was okay but i wasn't able to sync between that and my device.

Have you tried to sync c:\VirtualCD (Default path for plugin and where all files are written)?

Do you mean to say that they arent actually saved in X, but actually in the folder for the program?

Abrazor,
You got it right, Edit "gen_VCDrive.ini" in MM plugins Folder to change Drive and path.
Folder must exist prior to MM start as there will be some problems (possibly it will not work).

I can send files to that place but can't set up an autosync with a playlist.
