SharePod 3.9.9

SharePod is still alive, and being updated (a bit slowly!) when needed.

SharePod 3.9.9 fixes an issue where some iPhones and iPod Touch devices are not recognized.

Great to see the project is still alive!
However, my iPhone 3GS still shows up as "IPhone_ITouch5 (read only)" and the 'computer to iPod' buttons are missing. Should it even be possible for my device type to copy tracks to it from sharepod?

Some log data:
Microsoft Windows NT 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1
64bit: True
IPhoneConnector: Version: True, Product version: 8.4, file version: 507.7.0.1
Apple Mobile Device Support enabled
iPhone/iTouch connected
iPod found, profile: iPhone
MusicDatabase: Compatible, version 68
ArtworkDB: Compatible

Thanx!

For some reason i do not get the option to transfer tracks to my iPhone 4.Plz help.

Fretief said...

Hi - I have the same issue with my iphone running IOS 5.1

Jeff said...

Hi,

Support for adding/changing/removing tracks on iPhone 3GS onwards is not supported. Apple has made it increasingly hard to get around their encryption. Other larger for-profit apps can afford to spend the time to reverse engineer the encryption, but I can't :(

SharePod still aims to be the easiest way to get music off your iPod/iPhone though :)

Rintje said...

Ahhh, that explains it then.

I hoped for a 'better' answer, but i understand you can't do miracles :-)

kcla said...

I love Sharepod its fantastic but I have downloaded the latest version 3.9.9 and my iphone is being recognized as a Iphone_Itouch4???
Its a 3GS !! I think the cliche is still there? I hope you can fix it, if you do i guarantee money your way.
Thanx CR

Using current, updated Windows XP, Sharepod opens, begins the search for the ipod, encounters an error and closes. I tried downloading the .net update but Microsoft says the one I have conflicts with this, so I'm at a loss.

Whenever I try to upload/delete music from my iPhone 3GS iOS 3.1.3 I get this error: http://pastebin.com/0Jnwx5Vr

I know it had worked with some older version before. The music is copied to my device but it doesn't appear in the iPod app.

Thanks for the effort you put into SharePod!

PS: Found v3.9.5 on my PC which works fine!

Tara said...

Thank you! Worked like a charm. Thanks to you and Lifehacker I didn't feed my Iphone to my rotti.

MikeM said...

This program is a fraud. I told it to backup my ipod touch. I then went to update my ipod. When I went to restore the files to the ipod the program did not work. The next time I opened it . . . 8 gb of music was GONE!

Hi..

Where is the "computer to iPod" botton??

My phone is iPhone4, iOS 10.5

Iain said...

Is anyone else having trouble getting Sharepod to recognise tracks downloaded to an iPhone via iTunes Match? I can see my old tracks, but whenever I buy new tracks I can't see them to transfer them off.

paolo zec said...

Hi ,

I am using since a lot sharepod with my iPod nano.

I bought a new iPod touch (OS 5.1), but it doesn't show the PC to iPod button .

Anyway thanks for your great product .

Ciao, Paolo

Amanda Frankel said...

Hi!
I've used SharePod before my computer was wiped clean and then reinstalled it this morning. I've been trying (just about) all night to transfer files from my iPod to my computer and it gets about halfway and then takes quite awhile on a song and does not budge. I've tried deleting music (I didn't really need it anyway...) and restarting the computer and program a few times. Is it because the file is a certain size, it takes more than 5-10 minutes for a given song when up to that song, everything was going super fast. Help!

Many thanks again. Keep on good work as usual.

Cheers,

Capriccio said...

Hi! I've just tried to copy my ipod onto a new computer after the old one was stolen. It hasn't quite worked - two things - the composers field is not right for most items - it seems to be taking the first "artist" that has sung a song by that composer

Since I have mostly classical music, this is a big issue.


The second thing is file names - lots of files, especially of operas which have lots of performers in the artist field were not copied. Is there a work around for these?

Capriccio said...

I REALLY hope there is a fix, because other than this issue, this is a wonderful thing!

Capriccio said...

Oh and one last thing - I cannot seem to join the help forums.

Sam said...

Absolutely awesome program! My iMac died and all my music was stuck on my iPhone 4S. Now I'm using a Dell Laptop and never thought I'd see my music on this thing. Thanks to you and Sharepod I have my entire collection on iTunes, on my Dell!!! Sent you a small donation, thanks so much!

Manfred said...

Hi there,
a great tool ;-)
For me there is only one thing that I am missing, in ITunes I can set the volume of the songs.
I use that to hear my audiobooks by setting the volume of my IPod to half and if was louder around me, I set it to 3/4 and have some in reserve.
Is it a great challenge to add that feature to sharepod?

Best Regards
Manfred

When dragging an album to the mediaplayer it plays the songs in a random order. How can I configure it playing the album from the first to the last song?
It worked with sharepod 3.8.7 ...

Karl Hungus said...

I need help.

I just got my computer back from the repair center, where a new hard drive was installed. So I installed Sharepod, then used 'Backup iPod' to migrate my music from my iTouch back into my newly reinstalled iTunes. But, for some reason, only 409 out of 1069 songs installed. Also, none of the cover art made it over, Any ideas??

Thanks a lot!

For some reason the Sharepod copied all the folders from my ipad to the pc, but none of the music files. I set the options multiple ways, and I still only get the folders. Its an ipad 2 transferring to a Windows PC running XP pro....Any one have this problem? I can't locate a log file to check what might have happened.

How about nano 6G support?

Hi Jeff, All,
I have a family using iDevices, all using different versions...
I have:
3 x 3G on 4.2.1
1 x 3GS on 4.2.1
1 x 4 on 5.1.1
2 x 4S on 5.1.1
1 x iPod Touch 2G on 4.2.1
1 x iPad 2 on 5.1
Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit Sp1

Using 3.9.9, none of them are writable - in fact the 'Copy to iPod' icon never appears for *any* of them.

Using 3.9.7, the 'Copy to iPod' icon appears for all of them.
Strangely, the 3GS, 4, 4S and iPad *ARE* writable, the 3G and iPod-T 2G are not, and come up with 'Your iPod (IPhone_ITouch4, database version 74) is not writable'.

Can Jeff, anyone shed any light on this? I could understand IOS5 not being writable, but why is 4.2.1 writable on the 3GS, but not on the 3G an iPod?

Thanks, Alistair

You're doing God's work! Thanks for the continuing support of my ancient Touch 2G. I sent you a few $$.

Ken Bergenham said...

I was thrilled to see this app available, and it seems to be working just fine with my iPod classic. Then I got a Windows XP error window saying that SharePod had encountered an error and had to shut down. Even worse now I can't access any of the songs on my iPod. It shows 50 GB used but it can't recognize any of it. Now SharePod crashes with the same error every time I try to use it. I've tried resetting my iPod, but it did no good. Any ideas what I can do now?

Thanks,
Ken

All iPod update features are disabled, but you can still copy files to your computer.

Michael Mauricio said...

Any chance that Sharepod will ever be IPod nano 6th generation compatible. I haven't found anything saying it is.

megan2021 said...

Oh thank you god! I won't even get started on the trouble I had finding this among the ones that want you to pay...I did donate, but only two dollars. I am poor, that's why I had to find a free way in the first place, but you deserve my liver!

Herbert Eppel said...

Hi - I just found SharePod. Looks good, but I can't get files I copy from my PC to my iPod nano to 'stick', i.e. they show up alright in SharePod, but not on the iPod or in iTunes, and next time I open SharePod again they have disappeared from the file list. Am I missing something?

I have used it twice now and it is a time saver for sure. If you have a paypal account I'd be happy to send a few. If not thank you and I will spread the word.

Cameron said...

Hi, Jeff. Thanks for your great work. I just found Sharepod and I'm using it with my iPod Classic.
I ran into a little problem. I copied 16 video files from my PC to the iPod. The available space on the iPod decreased accordingly, but when I look at the SONGS under MUSIC to see the videos, only two of the sixteen appear. However, all sixteen do appear on the list of files showing on the Sharepod screen. Do I need to look somewhere else on the iPod for the missing fourteen videos?

Cameron said...

Hi again, Jeff. Further to my previous post, I found the missing fourteen files. They were under VIDEO --> VIDEO PLAYLISTS --> RECENTLY ADDED. The other two of the sixteen I copied are under MUSIC --> SONGS. Seems odd they'd be in two different locations. Can I use Sharepod to "move" the two from SONGS to VIDEO?

Robin & Arnie said...

Sharepod's great, wonderful for my Ipod. 3.9.9 with my iPhone 4S, Sharepod clearly shows songs added to the iPhone, but on the iPhone itself, they do not appear. This seems very odd

murf said...

Hi, I have the same problem as above, adding songs to my iphone 4s, but cant find them on my iphone :(

Sows_Ear_Inn said...

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I could kiss you! It worked! My computer died 3-4 years ago & I lost all my music except on my IPOD, finally I found this solution. I made a small donation to show my appreciation :)

My iphone 4s with ios6 was recognized right off the first time but that was also the only time. I am stuck on Loading and the sharepod logo. It never finds my iphone anymore.

RavRob said...

Everytime I use this I end up having to restore in iTunes. Not cool at all.

Thank you so much for your Software. It worked like champ. I can copy my 23GB music library into my new system. Thank you so much....

I cant send music to my iphone but still get the option to do so!!?? any help please?? :)

N.R. :) said...

Just recently found out about sharepod and downloaded it the other day so I could transfer music from a friends iphone to my own computer. However, when I tried copying the songs to my computer, it copied about 10 songs then stopped, I noticed that at the bottom where it shows the free space on the iphone, it had changed from about 2gb to 0gb after copying the songs. I can't understand why it seems to be going by the free space on the iphone when i'm copying to the computer and not the iphone. Any help would be much appreciated! :)

hi Jeff -

love SharePod !

just renamed some playlists (to adjust sort order) by prepending an underscore to the playlist names ... looks good on the iPod, but SharePod now crashes upon launch

is this something that can be remedied ?

thanks !

HI, my Iphone 2g running iOS 3.1.3 doesnt get detected by sharepod, Sharepod just keeps searching endlessly for devices.

Master Del Universo said...

share pod doesn't seem to be working on windows 8, says that .net 3.5 is required, but .net is already an integral part of the new windows os, so any chance to fix this?

Btw thank you so much for freeing most of us from the hideous itunes

Does SharePod work with iPAd2 and with Windows 8?

emflaca said...

Hi, sharepod was working just fine then all of sudden it stops responding and stays stuck on loading. I unplugged it and even rebooted and still stays stuck on loading. My iphone is 3gs with iOS 6. Weird I was able to save all my songs on pc and even transfer to itunes but now I fixed up some songs and itunes has duplicates so I just wanted to do it from scratch and it started this. :-( any idea why?

Jing Yu Huang said...

Sharepod seems to be the best free transferring tool available to me. Thanks a lot!

Ern said...

Hi,
I've used Sharepod on Windows 7 and my iPhone 4S iOS 5 and it worked great. I now have Windows 8 and iOS 6, and it opens, loads, and recognizes my phone; however, it says that I have zero songs. The "free space" is correct and yet it still says that I have zero songs on the phone. Any known solutions to this? I have tried deleting sharepod, reinstalling, and restarting my computer. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Unknown said...

It seems not to work with ipod nano 7gen. It does not recognize it.
Although I can extract content, I cannot delete ipod content.

Can you confirm?

Do you expect to support ipod nano 7gen?

Thanks,

Hello,

I just installed Sharepod 3.9.9. There is a button for "copy to compuetr" but no button for "copy to iPod." Help says there should be a "copy to iPod" button.

My priority use is to copy from computer to ipod since iTunes is not adquate.

Please help!

Thank you!

Good programme but doesn't appear in the list of programmes on my computer and I can't find where it is located.. Every time I want to run it I have to reinstall from the download file. Where does the programme install to? Running Windows 7.

NoahMommy07 said...

Hi, I'm new to all of this. I moved and only have my laptop at the moment. So downloaded new itunes. I was able to transfer the music from my iphone5 to my computer, and it automatically transferred it to itunes as well, but it doesn't recognize my phone now. :( It says does not recognize (or something similar) and says I have to restore my phone. Can you help me with this issue? Maybe I did something incorrectly?
Thanks. :)

brian karanja said...

I just tried to use sharepod and the functionality seems to have been locked by an apple update or something. After copying the files, the space shows up as being used but the songs are not on the ipod. Any idea whether an update is coming?

Siggi Engelbrecht said...

I got a fully equipped iPod touch 4g (model MC547LL iOS 6.0.1) as a present and without the iTunes database.

I successfully used sharepod 3.9.9 to backup the m4a tracks, I suspect the respective artwork data are lost (perhaps this is a feature?).

Anyway, upon deleting some artits from the iTouch I got some really confusing messages.

Thereafter, the artists were gone in the sharepod list but still showed up on the iTouch along with all tracks, but without the respctive files. This turned the iTouch into some hectic activity upon selecting one of these "deleted" tracks and it also has damaged the artist's database such that addition of new artists does not show up in the artist's database, although the tunes still can be addressed by the album names.

Well....

Hi! I just downloaded Sharepod after a very frustrating day of trying to move a song from my iPhone 4 to my PC. I just downloaded the newest OS, iOS6, onto my phone, thinking maybe that would help. But now, Sharepod recognizes my iPhone, but none of my music. It says "0 files" under "Purchased" and "Rebecca's iPhone." Please help! I had such high hopes for your program! :(

Hi
I have used sharepod to copy th music off my Ipod Touch 4 8G iOS iOS v6.

When I then run up iTunes 11 or 10 i get the following message... "iTunes can not read the contents on the iPod. Go to the Summary tab in iPod preferences and click Restore to restore this iPod to factory settings."

Is there a way of fixing this without restoring to factory settings and restoring from a backup?

I the iPod was fine with iTunes before using SharePod.

Thanks

gben01 said...

Unfortunately I just experienced the same problem. I think Itunes did a back up before I googled, downloaded and installed this program - but I don't want to rush into anything and lose something important.

Any progress on resolving this?

Il Paradiso degli aborti said...

hi!

Thanks for your precious software, first of all!

I used it to backup my mp3s from an ipod and then used it to upload files onto an empty one.

The problem is, when I use sharepod to copy the files onto the new ipod, I get LESS files (5519) than the ones on the old ipod (5528) and than the ones i backed up (still 5528, proper).

Why does this happen? :)

Thanks in advance!!!

matt said...

It failed with a very long song name and Artist, an exception waa thrown.

Ali Bolch said...

please please pleasee help! why does itunes keep saying that it cant recognise my iphone ever since i used sharepod? It says I have to restore it :(

Hi, I just used sharepod to add music to my iphone 5.
However after that, my phone wasn't recognized by itunes, prompting me to restore my phone.
Is there any way to fix that? Without me actually restoring?

I've just had to restore my IPOD to factory settings. I've learnt a lesson from downloading Sharepod. Do your research before downloading anything to your computer. I will be more careful in future and not download anything like your software. Thanks for the lesson.

Got the same problems as others after copying music to my 4th gen iTouch - new music not appearing in my iTouch's library & now iTunes won't recognise my iTouch. Can I suggest that you put a major warning up on your Download page about this.

Same thing happened to me, Dean. unfortunately, the software author doesn't seem to care much since it's been posted several times.

trying to run the program and i get a null reference exception...any way to fix this?

Unknown said...

To solve the System.DllNotFoundException issue, run Sharepod as administrator (right-click, Run as administrator)

Also receiving the same error the others have, I'm running Windows 7 64 Bit.

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Unknown said...

Run as administrator does not fix the null pointer error, anything else?

I am currently running into the same issue using the 7th gen ipod nano. I tried running as admin but that didn't solve it. Help?

I get the same error as many others. Anyone know if we can get an old version of sharepod?

Hello,

I can see that Sharepod 4 has been released as a Setup instead of loved zip (setups are so WRONG).

A minute later I can see that Microplant has bought Sharepod.

R.I.P Sharepod ? Until portable, Y

Configuration : Sharepod 3.99

Hi, sharepod looks great, but for some reason it isn't working for me right now. The little green loading bar at the bottom never fully completes, and I cant see songs purchased on my ipod through iTunes on my sharepod song list. Neither can I see songs on my ipod that I have added to my sharepod song list. It appears my ipod isn't syncing properly, I don't know why. When I then go to exit Sharepod, I get this message :

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
at l.a(Object A_0, EventArgs A_1)
at a1.b(BaseDatabaseElement A_0)
at au.b()
at SharePodLib.IPod.SaveChanges()
at o.b.a()

SharePod 3.9.9, iPod Type IPhone_ITouch

does anyone know what this is about?

I purchased SharePod and had some configuration issues. I sent a request to MacroPlant and got an immediate response from Mike in Customer Support. His instructions were very clear and straightforward. I needed a little more help and he again got back to me immediately with more help. I can't recall seeing any company in this space with such responsive service. I have to say I'm very impressed. If this is how they run their company, I expect they will do well. Just a few bugs to work out and they'll have it...

I also have issue with this that I am not able to transfer music to my iPhone. Please help me.

Download music on Android

MeJoho said...

You kind of killed the idea of Sharepod when you made version 4. I DON'T want to have iTunes, that's why I downloaded Sharepod from you. I want to use my stupid iPod Classic as a USB - just drop and drag, and then play.

This means I have to use an older version of Sharepod. I suppose that's just how it is.

How do you fix:

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
at SharePodLib.IPod..ctor(DeviceFileSystem A_0, IPodLoadAction A_1)
at SharePodLib.IPod.GetConnectedIPod(IPodLoadAction action)

I have given up about

"System.NullReferenceException"

Instead I have installed Syncios!

Hey guys, so I got a new Ipod the other day. Ipod touch 5th gen. That's great so I used iTunes to put music on it initially which worked well then I went to use sharepod and it won't let me dellete songs or add playlists or eject the Ipod. Also iTunes now will not work because I opened sharepod and wants me to restore the ipod to factory settings. Anyone any ideas on how to help? Please
