Transferring mp3 files to iPod

May 27, 2010 at 6:02 PM

Does this project have code to transfer individual mp3 files to an iPod? I'm developing a product that automatically puts some mp3 on customers iPod when they plug it into a dock, but I can't find code to do it. Would I need to do it automate through iTunes?

iTunes already provides an auto-sync feature when it detects a docked device coming online.  Its a checkbox in the Devices tab of the Preferences dialog.  Have you fully described the problem you're trying to solve?

iTunes is not specifically per-song based.  You can copy playlists to an MP3 player but I don't think you want to do that with your iPod since it will convert non-MP3 files to MP3 format, probably decreasing bitrates.  The next major release of iTuner will include a feature to synchronize an iPod/iPhone on an automated schedule - every morning at 2am for example.  All the information you need is in the Apple COM interface documentation to do these sorts of things.
