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!

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.

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.)

I really like this app, but there is a snag. The usb transfer is SO SLOW. I know that this is almost certainly a problem with the phone and connection, not the app itself, but i just wish there was a way to speed the process up! Is it really this slow when used with a windows computer and the software the phone is provided with?

If your phone uses a memory card, get a USB 2 card reader. I picked up a "Thumbdrive" type adaptor for a Sony Memory Stick Pro at Fry's for about $7. It makes all the difference...

Whitout knowing whether iTMW 0.94 really worked with the newer Sony Ericsson cellphone models, I just bought a w850i walkman phone. And, to my great pleasure, syncing and transfer worked perfectly from the first test. I just had to choose the "music"-folder on my phones memory card as the folder to be synced. Then i made a "smart" playlist in iTunes that automatically picks out my 200 last played songs, and I have my favourite music on the go, all songs sorted in artists- and albums-folders with correct names. Synchronisation and unmounting of the phone is easily made from within iTunes' scripts-menu.

Gizmo-Xl had trouble on 04 Dec 2010
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?

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!

Anupah had trouble on 09 May 2007
Hi I just got the Nokia N73, great phone and I was so pleased to find out about the itunemywalkman.
The only way I can get it to work is to work is if I choose the "Mass storage" option on the phone and then the music goes into the gallery rather than the music media place. This means that I get the music on the phone but I can only access it from the gallery which means I can only play one song at a time, it will not continually play, also I can't get the playlist in the order that it was sent.
Is there a way to get this working thru the media player.
I am using OS X 10.4.9 and itunes version 7.1.1
Would much appreciate any help,
thanks.

Hi all

When I select Synchronise Now, I get the following Applescript error in a popup:

"Can't make «class pAlA» of item 1 of every «class cFlT» of «class cUsP» (item 1 of {"iTMW"}) of application "iTunes" whose enabled of it = true into type string. (-1700)"

I have tried changing the name of the iTunes folders and tried different on the fly encodings to no avail.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated

Regards

Leon

It appears that you are using FileVault, and currently this breaks file access from AppleScript. I hope Apple fixes this in the future, but until then, you need to turn FileVault off to be able to use iTuneMyWalkman.

I'm unable to sync my W800i with ITMW 0.94.

Each time, a small dialogbox apparears :
sh: -c: line 1: unexpected EOF while looking for matching `"
sh: -c: line 2: syntax error: unexpected end of file

If I click "OK", another dialogbox appears :
AppleScript Error
Can't make " " into type record. (-1700)

I know ITMW is a great app, because I was used to sync my phone music before this issue appears.

Help is welcome !
