with the new ipod touch 4.1 4 ios SharePod 3.9.7 does not work
Where are all of the answers to all of these questions?
My problem with 3.9.7 seems to have been fixed by doing the following:Delete the SharePodSettings.xml file, from the directory you put the exe in. AND Always run the application as Administrator, ie Right click the exe file, and select 'Run as Administrator'
For anyone having problems with an iOS 4.?...Sharepod does not support 4.0 or above yet. Hopefully it will very soon, just give it some time.
I downloaded your software and backed up my Ipod to an external drive. My Ipod is now wiped clean and the backup is not on my external drive. Not cool.
hello all.anybody knows how to disable random mode?thanks.

Hi I got a new I pod nano 6g, with my previous versions I used sharepod (which is, by the way, magnific) however this time I copied my songs with no problem to it but as soon as I eject it and check it out there is no song available on the ipod - if I connect again sharepod indicates that there is no song either although my space has been reduced.Can you help me? I already installed the new version of sharepod but the problem persists...
I can confirm the ipod nano (the square with a touchscreen) problemit copies the files, but doesn't seem to register them in the DB correctly...
I am sorry to butt in, but I have not found anyplace to ask a question. If I put my email address into community, it says I am already registered, but I do not know my password and there is nothing to say it will be sent to my email.Hope you can pass me on for help.Thanks
Thanks! I just needed to be able to add new songs on my iphone and couldnt because i have changed laptops. This was fast and easy. :-)

Quickie Bug report: The progress bar wil stop moving when transferring a large number of items (235). I haven't had the time to isolate EXACTLY where it stops.
Hi, I'm using sharepod 3.9.7 and think it's very good!However, I see that songs directly purchased from Apple Store (via iDevice's Wi-Fi connection) are not shown.I've made some little investigation in my ipod Touch 3G and found that all songs displayed by SharePod (Mp3) are located in folder \User\Media\iTunes_Control\Music\ (and subfolders)while purchased songs (M4A) are in \User\Media\Purchases\ Looks like SharePod is ignoring that folder... or it is because SharePod does not recognize M4A format?Hope this will be fixed soon!!!MAx - Italy
I downloaded sharepod today - got it to access my ipod once. On the second go - sharepod says my ipod is not connected, when it is. Any ideas from anyone as to how to unblock this?Ed

Hi, couple of issues, anyone has solved them- Not working with Net Framework 4 (must install 2 or 3.5)- Limited use of Ipod on Itunes after using Sharepod (cant sort, for example)- Some loaded songs wont play (Ipod just skips them)I have a 160 Gb Ipod Classic (4th or 5th gen I think)
It says my ipod isn't connected, even though it is. I've taken all the necessary/recommended steps to ensure that it could be read, and still nothing. Any help would be greatly appreciaited.

Hey Jeff,Love your work, and after trialling at least 10 different porgrams i must say this is by faar the best, and its free for life which is the icing on the cake!!Here's my suggestion though..can you please help us keep our play count.thats the only thing this software is lagging, the metadata for the playcount.. because my new iphone has no play count for the 1000 songs that i have, and its really annoying. please respond and hopefully add this feature in your next release. which i hope is coming out soon??
Hi,I was looking for the 'hack' so that my PC could recognise my Iphone 4 without Itunes. Is there such a thing or are we stuck with itunes?Many thanksoz

Help me! :(I using iPod Touch gen 2 8GB (firmware 4.2.1) and iTunes 10.1.2.17 but when I connect iTouch and SharePod 3.9.7 to Copy music to iTouch I have error window:iPod not fully supportedYour iPod (IPhone_ITouch4, database version 54) is not writable.All iPod update features are disabled, but you can still copy files to your computer.SharePod 3.9.7, iPod Type IPhone_ITouch4Can I use SharePod ? Can you help me ???
I'm new to Apple and the stuff around this, but I have to report an error and it would be great if you could deliver it to the right person.I got an Ipod 4G nano 1.04(firmware) from my little sister.If I use drag and drop with sharepod, unfortunately some tracks (mp3) couldn't be played with my ipod. alternatively I used copytransmanager and it worked. and also itunes worked fine for these (standard) tracks. and my old mp3 player has also no problems with the self encoded tracks (cbr 128).so again, if i use any other program to copy these tracks to the player it works fine. but if i use sharepod, they will be skipped in playing (the track is shown and after about 5 seconds the next track will be played).
Sharepod seems to be left unsupported for latest ios.Its a shame.It looks like it is better to close the website.
Sharepod does not list two songs that I added to mi iphone 3GS from the itunes store last week.
how do i unsubscribe to this. its getting annoying
I have the next problem: When I drop songs on my Ipod, and try to play them, my Ipod goes either to another song or it crashes. This only happens with a few songs wich I upload to my Ipod.please help
Hey man. I'd like to thank you a thousand times cause your software did what i needed! Keep up the good work and may God bless you!
IT IS CLEAR THAT SHAREPOD DOES NOT SUPPORT IOS 4.X AND ABOVE. WHY DON'T YOU POST THIS CLEARLY SO PEOPLE DON'T GET SO FRUSTRATED. THIS MAKES SHAREPOD ALMOST USELESS FOR THOSE USERS WITH THESE VERSIONS. CAN YOU PLEASE COMMENT AND GIVE A CLUE AS TO WHEN/IF THIS WILL BE ADDRESSED? NEXT MONTH IT WILL BE A YEARTHAT THIS PRODUCT HAS NOT FULLY SUPPORT MODERN IPHONES/IPODS
Latest Sharepod SUCKS!!! i've been using sharepod before and it works fine... now my ipod classic 6th gen cannot find my music on it, it says no music but when i connect it to sharepod - my songs were there... that the heck!What A bug!!! got a bunch of music in there.... grrrrrrrrrr
Hi, I have problem: when i try to"copy to computer" and check "import to itunes" ;the tracks are copied on my fixed disk in the folder i wanted, but an error occurs:"Copy finishedCopied tracks couldn't be imported into itunes?please help me
Jeff, great piece of software, and a god-send for people who find itunes too bloated for what they need. I use Sharepod exclusively and wrote about it on my blog http://blog.grimnorth.co.uk
Firstly, thank you for the software! I have used it for two years now and it saved my butt twice now because of craptunes crashing and losing my music. I was able to back up my files. I have also made a donation because I realize (unlike many other complainers on this list) that you do this for FREE, out of your own PERSONAL time. You read that people? This guy spends his own time to make this software and provides it for FREE on the honor system and hope that if someone finds it useful, they may throw him a donation of a couple of dollars. What a concept? So stop complaining, maybe is some people would at the very least thank the guy, we'd see an update. I see nothing has been posted in more than half a year now, maybe he got discouraged and stopped developing the app. I know I would after reading so many complaints and bug reports. Any of you say thank you first? or make a donation?
Hi guys, iPod nano 6g problem solved!Check this out:blog.getsharepod.com/2010/11/sharepod-397.html
Dear neo29, your link points to this page...Where is the fix to Nano 6G music database sync?Thanks
Hi mikdesa, thanks to Jeff or whoever moderates this blog, is my comment gone. Shame!
that work for me (ipod touch 2g 8GB)http://www.mediamonkey.com/download/thanks NEO....
WHY THERE ISNT A SHAREPOD VERSION FOR MAC?I MISS MY SHAREPOD!!!:(
Awesome Product, Awesome price. Please keep working on it, the world needs you.Thank you.
I was sooo happy when I finally found SharePod, a completely free one, opposed to the 20 others I've tried that promise to be free but make you buy it after 25 songs been transferred! But now I have a PROBLEM :(Everytime I try to run SharePod I only get the message "iPod database not found in C:\ipod_control\iTunes\iTunesDB" even though my iPod is plugged in and I've tried everything from the help site that you have and everything else I know... My iPod and my PC obviously hate each other since nothing and none (and I really mean nothing and none) of the how to..... things have helped and no program has been completely free...I WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE AN ANSWER :) I'M AT A LOSS OF WHAT TO DO...
Thank you!! You saved my entire collection. I get music from several people and this helped me back up all my music before my ipod died. I plan to donate once i get paid next week :)
Hello people. First of all thanks for this great and free app. I've been using it since 2009 and donated 20 bucks as soon as I saw it worked so great and add free. However I'm having a problem now. It crashes with the "SharePod has stopped working" message as soon as I open Sharepod with the ipod connected.I've tried killing iTunesHelper.exe and stopping and disabling the "Apple Mobile Device" and "iPod Service" services before opening SharePod with no luck.My config:- SharePod 3.9.7- Windows 7 Home Premium SP1- iTunes 10.4.1.10- iPod Classic 6th gen. with 2.0.1 software
Is Sharepod still being developed? It was one of my favorite apps, but it hasn't seen an update since last Nov, that's forever in software time! [Jeff if you are not planning on supporting it any further, perhaps you would consider making it an open-source project on sourceforge?]
Respected Sir,I had installed your application & using it for audio file operation with IPad/IPod & found very useful for my requirement, of transferring photo/video to/from IPad. However, i am looking for some API or dll, provided from your end, to carry out all those features & functionality with my .NET application. So, please let me know, your update on it.If in case, there is any query, then please let me know.Thanks for your support, in advance.My Email address: [email protected]Regards,Dhaval Gandhi
I guess Jeff is dead...RIP...HEY JEFF --> u could make a lot more $$$ if u EVER decide to fix the: "Your iPod (IPhone_ITouch4, database version 57) is not writable" error. All that really means is for previous iPod versions, this app ROCKS, but for iPod-Touch....this app SUCKS ASS!!! #makeitanOpenSourceprojectdude
if anyone knows of ANY similar product that does what Sharepod DID on the iPod_Touch (database version 57) --->> PLEASE POST LINK TO THIS SITE. p.s. make sure its FREE please
I've been using Sharepod for quite some time, as I absolutely HATE iTunes. However, one thing that I would like to see (and I assume it would be pretty easy to do) is when copying from the iPod to the PC, or backing up the iPod, to have the ability to use [AlbumArtist] in the directory structure instead of just [Artist]... That way full albums would stay together in the filesystem after the files are extracted...Other than that, LOVE LOVE the program!!!
guys probably we can donate some money to the developer so that he would implement the iOS4xx support/ this app realy rocks, but my iphone 3g 4.2.1 is "not wrtable"
thanks. i just donated because your program really made my day. :)
with ipod nano 6g, sharepod not work, someone could use with this version?
I had nano ipod, its look is similar white as shown in site, but i had heard that skin cases provides great look to the ipod, should i change its original skin.?==============Ipod nano covers
I think there's something different with iTunes 10.5. None of the current programs similar to SharePod can recognize my iPod Touch. MediaMonkey also claims that their current version is not compatible with iTunes 10.5. It would be awesome if you could come up with another version!
Thank you for sharing with us. Turn your attention on cheapest home insurance to save your money on house policy.
I have installed sharepod to copy music folders from my PC to Iphone. I have copied the songs which I could view while connected to the system but they are not visible on the iphone for me to play.
Alright here I am, macdaddy to save everyones painful experience. So basically Sharepod.exe has Stopped Working will be fixed like so, and will have to be done this way constantly till there's a full fix.Sharepod.xml is saved to your desktop (or where ever you placed the sharepod.exe) Delete Sharepod.xml and remove it from the recycle bin. Next step is boot up Sharepod so it creates a new .xml, upload all the files you want in it, and then finish like you normally would. IF sharepod gives you those long errors, while sharepod is open delete the sharepod.xml and it'll work fine. Next time you boot up sharepod remember to delete the .xml because it reads the old files.Hope this works for all of you.
I've tried searching for that file 'sharepod.xml". The only thing that was downloaded in the WinRAR Archive was the readme text document and the actual application. I searched my whole computer, but i can't find the .xml file. Any other way to stop it from going unresponsive?
I can't find the .xml file. When i downloaded the program, it was saved in my download file as an archive. In it was the read me document and the application. When i start up the app, it just goes unresponsive. Not even an .xml file is created. Help?
I had a problem to sync my iPhone with iTunes. So I decided to try SharePod, But in vain.I made a screenshot of my Share pod so that you could see the problem:http://annamaladec.pixa.us/images/19488976/shatepoodAs you can see from the image the option "COPY TO IPOD" is missing in my Sharepod and I am not able to copy the files to my iDevice.What can be done?PLEASE help!
I have the same problem. No Copy to Ipod icon on sharepod 3.9.8
I TOO am missing the option to 'copy to iPod'. I have backed up my music library to the laptop but no 'Copy to iPod' icon is available in the toolbar. In any of the screenshots I have seen of Sharepod this icon is there, so I would really appreciate any advice you can offer.Thanks in advance for your assistance!
I love what you are doing for us. I mean I love your software. I am looking forward to iOS4 support.Thanks for your help!!!
Thanks Jeff for taking the time to work on this.I can offer a SOLUTION for one problem.If in the process of using Sharepod you find that iTunes states that your device is no longer recognised and needs to be 'restored' to factory state - DON'T PANIC!For me, Sharepod works well when transferring stuff off the device. I got this error message when I pushed one song from PC to device.I found a solution that worked (having assumed the song had somehow corrupted the music library on the device). This involved removing the song and updating the library using another freeware program called CopyTrans Manager. After I did this, iTunes recognised my device again and all was back to normal!
removed in version SharePod 3.9.8 copy to ipod? it sucks
Sharepod version 3.9.8 is not ready to recognize ipod nano 6g and transfer files isn'it? Apparently works but when you look at the device after import the files nothing hapen. Anyone have the same problem? Don't we need and update to solve this problem?Still searching for answers, to avoid itunes, but the only way that i found is the WMP plugin "dopisp". Work wiht the transfers but is sucks!

Dear Sharepod communityAny idea why I am lacking the "Copy to Ipod" button in 3.9.8 - using a new iPhone 4S? Others have this too? Thanks
I am having trouble adding tracks to my iPhone 4S (iOS 5.1) via SharePod, is my device supported? I recently found about sharepod from here and am wondering whether I could go for an alternative:http://alternativeto.net/software/sharepod
I just downloaded and unzipped sharepod 3.9.8. When I try to run it I immediately get an error "sharepod has stopped working". I never see it open at all. I have windows 7 64bit. I tried to download .net framework version 2 for x64 but my computer says I already have it. Any suggestions? I hope someone can help. I'm desperate!
i just wanna leave a comment to let you know that i honor your work on sharepod project. I like this helpful tool so much cause it helped me often to backup some music from customers devices. i work as <a href="http://www.consolendesign.at>iphone and ipod technican</a> in a big austrian repaircenter and sometimes my customers are very happy if the music is already on their device after we had to reset it. You did a great work !
Okay so I have no idea whats happening. I remember this working perfectly previously. Anyway I have an iPhone 4s 64gb. It worked before just not now. So just a heads up :) Good Luck trying to satisfy these morons that don't have any patience. Keep up the good work.
There is no copy to ipod button, only a copy to computer button.Also, i can´t drag & drop my songs from my computer to my ipod.Can you please help me??
Just downloaded your software, was able to drag and drop songs to Ipod but now I'm unable to connect to Itunes without it saying I need to restore it! Also prior to connecting to itunes; I was unable to see any of the songs I transferred to phone...any thoughts
