FABULOUS. I've used this off an on when not aboard the iPhone boat and it always works without a hitch and it's fast. I can't give it enough praise. It has worked flawlessly with at least 6 different phones/memory cards over the last 5 years and I LOVE IT. Thank you for such a great tool!

Used stock preferences and my SD card on Optimus V was erased when it synced. Lots of droid software erased. There should be some sort of warning upfront to avoid this...if it was my mistake.

The ReadMe, which comes on the disk image, clearly states:

"The program has been designed to synchronize music files to a specific location on the memory card of a mobile phone or other similar device. Other files will be deleted from this location. If a careless user points this program to a location other than the desired one, unwanted files may get deleted. The author takes no responsibility of potential data loss."

Conclusion: Always read the ReadMe before first using an application!

Playlist are not correct after sync

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. put song A, B, and C in playlist one
2. put song X, Y, A, C in playlist two
3. set playlist one and two to be sync in prefs
4. after the sync check the playlists on the SD card

What is the expected output?
I should see song A, B, and C in playlist one and song X, Y, A, C in playlist two

What do you see instead?
I see see song A, B, and C in playlist one and song X, Y in playlist two (so I am missing A,C in this playllist)

Note: all the music files are copied to the SD card but the playlist are getting altered from what they should be when the same songs are in more then one playlist.

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
Version 0.955 and OSX Version 10.6.5

Please provide any additional information below.

Is there a way around this?

If song appears in several playlists in iTunes, it appears in just one playlist on
device. This really needs to be corrected.

If you have song1 in more then one playlist on iTunes targeted to be synced it will not show up on the other playlist that get created on your device.

Great application which I use on an almost daily basis without any problem.

However, iTunes 9 started to freeze on me as soon as I installed it last week. After various attempts to solve the problem, I noticed that removing all scripts from ~/library/itunes/scripts solved the freezing problem. It may not be specific to iTuneMyWalkman, but this was the only scripts I had installed for iTunes 9, so just wanted to point this out to the developer.

Great work otherwise!

Could you please try out the build that is posted here in the issue tracker:

Let me know if it works or not.

Have just started using this, but it works wonderfully. Great interface, and once I got all of the prefs dialed in, the syncing is easy and accurate. I may really start to use my phone instead of my iPod, at least on daily outings.

Phone is LG eNV2 (VX-9100). Use the 0 folder setting and all works perfectly. Have not tried video or photo transfer yet.

My one wish list item would be Calendar (and Contact) syncing, but that is asking a lot. (And I guess can't be done through removable media...I have just downloaded BitPim to try for that, but first have to get a micro USB cable.)
