Does your iPod connect to itunes? You have to connect it to itunes on the same pc at least once before MM can access it.

The iPhone should use d_iphone.dll so that's in order and no USB drive should use it.

I suggest you update to MediaMonkey 4.1.6 and if it still fails the latest iTunes as well.

I am using MediaMonkey 4.1.5.1719 and have an Iphone 3GS which I am using as an iPod. There are two entries under PlugIns one for iPod and d_iPod.dll and then the one I set up when I first connected it FirstNameLastName ITouch using d_iPhone.dll

Which version of MediaMonkey and what model iPod? Also which device plugin (dll) in MediaMonkey are you using for the iPod?

I'm having trouble syncing my Ipod with MediaMonkey.

I've been using MM for a few months now and initially had no problem with the set up and syncing tracks to my ipod. However I recently moved my computer and hooked up an external hard drive to it for backups and I believe this is where the problem started.

It took on the same drive letter as what the Ipod had and any time I synced tracks to it via MM it created them in a folder on the hard drive. I tried following all the steps on the Wiki and rolling back Itunes to an older version but none of these has had any effect. Can someone provide a suggestion or recommendation as to what to do.

When I go to device configuration it says the Ipod is not even plugged in which is also odd.

iPod Touch and any iOS device requires iTunes installed (or Copy Trans Driver).

It's a 32 GB iPod Touch MC008LL (third generation), and the version of MediaMonkey is 4.1.5.1719.

ETA: I was able to connect an earlier model iPod Nano which was recognized, so it seems to be just the iPod Touch I'm having difficulty with.

Hi~ I just installed MediaMonkey on a SurfacePro 3 running Windows 8, and I have an iPod Touch with iOS 5.1.1 that I'd like to sync. However, MediaMonkey hasn't been able to recognize the iPod when connected, even though it shows up in Windows Explorer. Other USB devices (e.g., an external hard drive) have been recognized and scanned successfully, but the iPod does not appear at all. I've gone to Options/Portable Device Sync and it does have an entry for an iPod, but it says "This device is not connected" when I try to configure it. The computer is new and has never had iTunes installed (I'm trying to avoid using iTunes as it wreaked havoc on my old computer, so I'd rather not install it if possible).

Is there any way to remedy this? (I apologize if this question has been asked before.) Thanks!

You should capture the connecting of the iPod Touch to your PC and the sync in a debug log (step 4b) and send the log to support for developers to analyze: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=69
