iPod & XPlay Preview 2 HELP ! :) !

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok so.....
My girl wanted an mp3 disk based portable for the road, could not bear to buy an inferior product... so I decided to get the iPod, firewire card, and XPlay sync software (from MediaFour)...

All was well with installing the firewire card with the version of XP she is running. Just got XPlay Preview Release 2 from MediaFour and installed...

Here are the issues and facts...
- She loves the iPod (if it worked properly)
- The screenshots dont look the same...
ie - no songs, playlists, or artists folders are created,
like shown in the screenshots.
- We can add songs to the iPod.
- We can play songs on the desktop machine from the iPod disk.
- WE CAN NOT PLAY OR SEE ANY MUSIC ON THE iPOD!?!?!?!?...

HELP ME PLEASE
(She is running Windows XP Professional)
HELP ME PLEASE

Oh yeah.... Merry XMas & Happy Holidays!

OR, you could just load songs that you want on the iPod from your mac (assuming you have one) or any mac with iTunes 2 and F/W. This will be temporary of course until XPlay works as advertised. Also be prepared to buy it.
You know, with all the trouble you went through, wouldn't it have made more sence to get a realy cheap iMac with f/w just for the music? dunno man...

If you could buy her software that could mount Mac volumes on her PC, she could use the iPod in FireWire Disk mode. Windows doesn't recognize the Mac OS' hidden folders, so she'd just have to navigate to the apporpriate folder and swap MP3's.

Or...you could buy her a Mac.
