I found out why the script only added half of the songs on my iPod. It's easy to fix. The songs are stored in a number of invisible folders inside an invisible folder /iPod_Control/Music/ on the iPod. These folders are named Fxx, where xx is a number. On my iPod, there are 50 such folders (F00-F49). In the script, there is a line that makes it search those folders in a loop, but it only goes up to 19.

If you, like me, have more than 20 such folders on your iPod, just open the script in the Script Editor, and change the following line:

repeat with theNum from 0 to 19

to

repeat with theNum from 0 to 49

(or whatever the number of folders you have is).

I now have all the songs on my iPod in a playlist inside iTunes, from which I can burn CDs etc. Works fine!

Just found out it copies only about half of the songs on my iPod. Strange.

EXCELLENT!
Works perfectly on iTunes 7.0.2 using a 3G iPod 20 GB. Havent tried burning a CD yet, but I can now share my iPod over the iTunes port as usual. How cool is that.

Used Music Publisher for that, but that one has a bug where it somes goes bananas and claims all the cpu and needs to be force-quit. So, no need for an external application anymore.

Would still have to find out what happens if you change iPod contents... do you have to clear the playlist and import it all over again or does the script update the playlist?

It works great for me. Things that may be different: I am running my user as an admin, my ipod is a gen 3, i'm running the WWDC tiger preview (this part shouldn't matter), my itunes library is located at ~/music/iTunes/iTunes Music Library.
