Jeff said...

Thanks for your efforts.
Greetings from Portugal

Jeff said...

cool, let me know how it goes

jmbutonz said...

I don't really understand what device and function this Preview supports.

- Iphone (which firmware) ?
- Ipod ?

- Read/Write mp3 on device ?
- Which other file format ?
- Does album coverart supported ?

Thank you.

chrisu said...

this version suports all devices!

Jon Drews said...

I had a small error with Preview 9. I am running Windows 7 x64. It kept on giving me an error saying that QTCF.dll was not found. I think this may be a iTunes issue as well.

Anyhow I dumped the QTCF.dll into C:\Windows\System32 and SharePod started up with no problems and loaded a movie onto my iPhone 3G S.

The QTCF.dll was found in C:\Program Files (x86)\QuickTime\QTSystem

Hope this helps someone out!

Neko² said...

errrr, my first try on my nano 5g deleted all the tracks, there is no music when I browse the ipod, but everything is still there in sharepod, so I'm making a backup right now, I think I will try to delet everything then re-import everything.
Anyway a BIG THANKS for the update, I can now transfer music on my nano 5g !

Neko² said...

well, I deffinetly can't put any songs in my ipod with this version.
in fact yeah I can put them in but it will be in "others" so I can't listen to them. what should I trie to do ? re-sync with itunes ? is it important that for the first time I use sharepod it is launched on the same computer as itunes ?
thanks

whizkidforte said...

Jeff,

I have many iPods and have created multiple libaries. How can I transfer my iPod music and playlists to another library besides the mian one? Please help!

Neko² said...

Hello again. I finnaly made up to manage the ipod with sharepod (yeah). It did a great job exept for the part where ALL of my "artist", "songs", or "albums" menu are shuffled entierly. Like if I go in artist, there won't be sorted in alphabetycal order, but at total random. Any way to pur it back, Jeff ?
Thanks man.
(sorry for the misspells, I'm french.

cambryrene said...

I honestly would be lost without Sharepod.


Thank you so much for your product.

chachai said...

>Neko2,

Same things happen to me.

ZefleR said...

Ive got the database corruption using Preview 9. Any suggestions how i can fix this without a restore?

Jade said...

Are you planning on adding any other music formats to another version? Some of my songs just don't want to go on there!

Jeff said...

Neko, thanks for the reports. What did you do to make SharePod start working? Generally, putting at least 1 track on a new iPod with iTunes is the best way to ensure all the files are setup correctly.

The artist/album/track sorting problem I have just verified and fixed on my Nano5G - new version coming tonight :)

Mark said...

Thanks for the app, it's great, but...how on earth do you get out of "Random Mode" and into "Sequential Mode". I've looked everywhere, I can't see how to do it !

Neko² said...

Hi Jeff, In fact the first time I used sharepod preview 9, I already add a ton of songs on my ipod, BUT sharepod was running from another computer, where there is no itunes. does sharepod get files from the itunes directory ? thath's the only explaination I'm thinking of, because when I put my ipod & sharepod on the same computer than my itunes, it worked.
If you have fixed the random listing of the tracks I might give it a trie, I really hate itunes ;(
thanks !

Neko² said...

It's me again, the preview 10 bugged the first time, because I used it to delete all the tracks on the ipod then to put only 3-4 albums (to make sure the track listing was well fixed). but all the previous track added with itunes were still there, and freezing the ipod when trying to play them. so I deleted my whole itunes library, synced the ipod (so it deleted everything on it). THEN I used sharepod preview 10, and it works perfectly =] !
thanks for your work, keep going ! ^^

pixiecorpse said...

when i use sharepod to listen to a track on my computer, the album art looks blurred. help!

Kris said...

drag drop does not work in Windows 7. Would love that feature again, otherwise great product!

Neko² said...

>Kris
Drag & Drop works perfect in Windows 7 ! At least on mine.

anon said...

I have to join "Mark" here.
How can you disable the random mode? It skips from any song to any other song. Ignoring that i have selected a playlist, it chooses a random song from all songs stored in my iPod.

Derrick said...

I tried to use SharedPod to get my "Camera Roll" pictures off of my iPhone but it didn't find them. It did show all of the other photo folders though. Was this on purpose?

Just me :) said...

Nice software you got there :)

Can you tell me why "Eject Ipod" button is not working for me?

It says "Ipod cant be ejected. Exit Sharepod anyway?

Andre in LA said...

Thank you for the update!

Any chance to add support for ringtones on iphone 3GS?

Currently itunes wipes off all my music when syncing ringtones... insanely irritating, by design!

hagentx said...

I think you can make a development of one way to put the lyrics, cost me a lot organize my library with Sharepod and put those lyrics track-by-track with other program, like iTunes, who's modify my library when I connect my SP whit and old lib sotred at my hd.
Please, get this feedback, with this, your program can be a great tool for everyone.
Best regards,
RiCK

Andrew said...

Can anyone confirm if drag and drop works on windows 7 now? Are there any special things you have to do to get it working? (ie run as administrator? xp compatability mode?)

gordwins said...

Will it be able to support M4B in the add files list filter? Currently my M4bs do not show up and I have to turn off the filter by using All files. Other than that, it seems pretty robust.

gordwins said...

M4B files are not fully supported. When you listen to an audiobook on your iPod and stop to listen to music normally your place is bookmarked in the audiobook. If you sync your iPod with Sharepod it will loose the Audiobook bookmark when you go back into the ipod.
I hope you can fix this...

John J. Camilleri said...

Am running Preview 10 but drag & drop doesn't work for me on Windows 7. Have tried running as administrator and in XP compatibility mode but makes no difference.. everything else seems to work great though! Hope you can get this small bug fixed :)

Atticus said...

iTunes 9.0.2 compatibility??

happylife said...

I like sharepod , But after back the postcast files ,restore it to my iphone.it became an song ,no in the postcast pathway.
Can fix this bug on nest preview?

Andrew said...

Heres a solution to drag+drop problems in windows 7 - http://foxsys.blogspot.com/2009/08/windows-7-user-account-control-uac-drag.html. Perhaps newer versions of sharepod could fix this?

Max said...

about the drag and drop... it is not a bug but windows security thing (if you run program as administrator then windows will not let you drop files in it). If you really want drag and drop to work then disable UAC:

Naeem said...

its not working for me

i have Ipod nano 5th gen 8gb

and i uploaded mp3 via ur software but my ipod is not shoing it in music and thay are in ipod memry

Cafonauta said...

Stupid question: What's the meaning to use this (nice) program if for my ipod touch I still need to install the f*** iTunes?

Brian said...

I am looking at downloading the SharePod software. My wife has a large library of purchased songs from ITunes on her Apple Laptop. I have a Dell Laptop. Can we use the SharePod on different platforms.

Bowtie said...

can you add video to the ipod nano with sharepod software?

ChouK said...

Hi !

I want to know how can I donwload an old version of SharePod ? I'm asking that 'cause I'm a shuffle iPod user and 1 Ko less on SharePod is 1 Ko More for my music.

Anyway, Thanks for your soft !

Michael said...

Jeff:

Is there a way to randomly reorder playlists with Sharepod?

Thanks.

mateo360 said...

I can't run it on WIndows XP without any Service Pack. Do I need SP1/2/3 to run it ? Of course I have .Net Framework 2.0 installed
Thx

d said...

Where do i disable random mode or is this a trick from the greedy developers?

Trung Nga said...

Hey Jeff,

Good work, however, is there a feature where I can see the movies that I copy onto the ipod (so I can ultimately delete them?)

Cheers

D said...

great job on the new preview! just a question: is there any way to edit the order of songs in a playlist?

Mark said...

I tried to copy some music to my iphone using this. First of all my track listings were out of order and then when I try to go into artists or tracks under the iphone the ipod app crashes.

Is there anything I can do to fix this as it is highly annoying.

Brenda said...

Thank you so much for this. I spent all day trying to find a way to get the music from my ipod touch into my itunes and every "free" product I tried was only a demo for transferring a few songs. This software copied all my music perfectly! Thanks!! :)

P.S. Cnet seems to have an old version of this software as I couldn't get it to work at all, but downloading directly from your website worked just fine!

Roger N. Whiting said...

I have downloaded Sharepod V3.8.2 as a zip file. While unzipping the file, a request for a password "pops" up...did not realize that one was needed to install Sharepod...so...the program will not install! Thoughts...recommendations please.

jordan said...

my share pod wont recognise my phone

help!
I really need to add new songs

Bridgette said...

Hey, I love, love, love Sharepod! It's a lifesaver! Recently though I connected a new Nano to Sharepod, everything worked for the Nano, but when I connected my Ipod Classic, all it shows is what was on the Nano previously. This hasn't happened before when I plugged in another Ipod besides mine in (it was a classic though). Is it the Nano (it happened on another program)? I would love to be able to use Sharepod again, without having to delete all of my lovely music, any help? :D

freehunter said...

thanks for this excellent tool, i meet a problem that the chinese file name display as unregnized code but it display correctly when using itunes.

richard said...

i now have 3.9.4.10.
i've used it to clean up tags in my music files.
but when i copy back to PC, the changed title reverts back to the original title, instead of saving the newly changed title.

patty said...

Hi there,

I'm quite new to this sharepod and I loved it!!! I do have one question though, is there anyway i can upload photos to my ipod with sharepod? Drag and drop doesn't work as the file type is not supported. its a jpg file. Am I doing something wrong?

Sivan said...

so now sharepod works and I managed to add songs to it and manage the songs but when I eject the Ipod it looks like nothing chaged- the playlists I deleted are still there, the new ones don´t appear, nor do the new songs or any other chage I made. The only explanation I have is that I need itunes, but then what is it good for?
Please help!

jar said...

Hi Jeff.

Congratultions for your Sharepod.

I will apreciate so much.

Thanks

Casper said...

Are bookmarkable audiobooks not handled by sharepod?

(they are format .m4b)

(see http://www.podcaststingers.com/audiobooks.htm )

Kevin said...

Awesome program, really useful and I'd don't like using iTunes, so I love this program. :)

One thing though, when you select one song, none of the check boxes are checked, and you have to click on it before you can edit anything. Could that be changes so that they are checked when only one song is selected?

Ed109 said...

awesome tool!!

Rickstr26 said...

Hi there,
I can't get Sharepod to download properly on my PC. It runs the program however when it is finished and I hit the Allow button, my Microsoft Digital Image Pro 9 application pops up.
Also, I did successfully update with Microsoft .NET Framework Version 2.0 Redistributable Package (x86)
Any help would be appreciated

Moyetes said...

There's a problem I haven't seen in here but it keeps happening to me;
Every time I "Copy to PC" the tracks are missing playcounts and ratings but whenever I "Copy to PC" marking the "Import my music to iTunes" they DO have playcounts and ratings as in the iPod. The only problem that happens when marking this option is that tracks will always play from the last moment the track was stopped/paused. I hope someone has had this case and found a solution.

wintermute000 said...

This is really slack. CAN YOU PUT UP HOW TO GET OUT OF RANDOM MODE AND INTO SEQUENTIAL MODE PLEASE. Left and right click on every part of the GUI and no dice.

If this is a locked down feature until you pay or join please explicitly spell it out!

Alina said...

Hi Jeff,
could you please add a feature where one can see (and transfer) photos to the iPod?
Would be great.
Thanks anyway.
Alina

Mari said...

stupid question :( but is there a version of this for a mac? I just moved to an imac and this is one of the programs that I wanted to continue using ^^ thanks for listening :)

Mark said...

It's been five months since this post was made, Sharepod claims you can download videos from Nano v.5 yet even after 5 months video download is not supported. What gives? Why claim that the software does something what it doesn't do?

ethnic vegetarian said...

I am having a problem uploading folders of music that I have converted from CD to MP3 and now use on Windows Media Player. When I select all folders that I would like to upload and it starts, then says 'no files have been uploaded'. Why will it upload music from my 'download' folder, but not from my music library?

Mr Blue Lips said...

Thanks for the product mate!! Helped me out a great deal ;-)

Michael said...

The current Sharepod version doesn't work with the iTouch with the newer iTunes v9.1.

Facundo Lugones said...

When there will be a version for mac?

Hostels are probably the very cheapest place you can stay during your travels.

Jaz said...

Do you have any source for the new version?

Millertime said...

I love this product and it hasn't worked since Apple made us update to the new software...I really hope it can be fixed because I absolutely despise itunes.

Jaz said...

I have purchase a new iPod nano 6th gen 8gb last month and it's cool and touch screen.

Hi, I have tried unsuccesfully to use SharePod for some time now, but every time I start it up, I get this error message: System.IO.IOException: AFCFileRefClose: /iTunes_Control/iTunes/iTunesCDB failed, returned 12
vid IPhoneConnector.IPhoneFile.HandleError(String method, Int32 returnCode, Exception overrideEx)
vid IPhoneConnector.IPhoneFile.Close()

vid SharePodLib.IPod.GetConnectedIPod(IPodLoadAction action)

And after that there's not much to do except to close the program. So, I was wondering what kind of error is that, why do I keep getting it, and how can I get rid of it to make the progam work?
Any help would be much appreciated!
