I have an iPhone 3g with 3.0.1 software, and MM is telling me the firmware is incompatible.

Just download and replace the old d_iPod.dll file in C:\Program Files\MediaMonkey\Plugins\

The Palm Pre does not work correctly with the latest version on MediaMonkey. It shows up as a USB device, takes hours to sync 800 songs, won't sync album artwork, and has caused my Windows 7 system to go to the blue screen of death at least 5 times in the last day. Is anyone having success using the Pre with MediaMonkey? If so what did you do to make it work? I may have to go back to dragging tracks to my Pre as a USB device.

Auto Sync, playlists and so on all seem to be working as expected. I'm not experiencing any less functionality then I have with the XM+Napster software.
Just trying out MM after an iPod 160GB was left under the Christmas tree for me.... Though I no longer subscribe to XM, I synced my podcasts only to the Inno's 500MB partition. More than enough room for a few episodes of daily/weekly NPR blogs and programs, and MM's ability to sync both devices has me reaching for my wallet.

Now if MM could sync and use the 1GB card in my Nokia 6682 phone....

I have a Philips Gogear SA5285BT/02.
Works fine with MM.... except for one strange issue. I have automatic playlists, based on playcount. Syncronizing such a playlist with my GoGear goes well. But when I sync again, the playcount in MM is updated for about every other song. I mean: one song has its playcount updated, and the next one hasn't, the third one has, the fourth one hasn't etc. Is there a remedy for this? Is it a bug - in MM or in my GoGear?
Regards, Willy

Nope, Zune is a closed format and it can't be synced with any media application other than the Zune software. Even WMP can't sync with the Zune.

Hi,

Nokia is listed as a supported device but my 5800 only works partially with MM. It always copies all files instead of only copying new ones. That's a rather basic piece of functionality. I'd flag Nokia as 'partially supported' until this is resolved. Playlists work but only if the device is connected in PC Suite mode. If it's connected in mass storage mode the playlists are not recognized by the Nokia and apparently erased.

It's probably rather a problem with your PC or specific settings in general. I don't think most users have that problem.

Really? You have a 5800 to try this with and it works fine for you? Any other Symbian Xpressmusic phone perhaps? What is wrong with my PC? Which specific settings should I modify?

Yes, no, no, not sure, check this: http://www.mediamonkey.com/support/inde ... 13&nav=0,1, and the track destination in the device settings, look at the links I've posted, etc.

I see several other posts about this device which haven't described the particular problem you mention, so that led me to my conclusion about it being specific to you:

I think its unwise to declare "X and Y doesn't work" before you check what other users have posted and also without providing some good evidence of the problem.

Alright, tried a few more things along with reading the docs :)

1- automatic sync works but is not intuitive to new users (has to be enabled separately in the options)
2- drop 'n drag sync of playlists onto the device node works but not user friendly IMO (with a full explorer this quickly becomes cumbersome)
3- right click on a play list->send to->Nokia 5800 Memory Card (Synchronize) copies but does not synchronize. To me this is obvious way to sync a playlist and it does not work.
4- synchronizing in 'mass storage' mode does not sync playlists (Nokia problem I imagine)

Behavior 3 is per the documentation (it says send to always copies) but not as expected give that it says 'synchronize'. It also different from Winamp which does synchronize when you send a playlist to a device. Of course MM can implement whatever they want but POLS should apply. It would be nice if either MM would sync in this case or if that's not desired/possible remove the 'synchronize' from the menu item.
I think its unwise to declare "X and Y doesn't work" before you check what other users have posted and also without providing some good evidence of the problem.
As far as 'evidence' is concerned, clearly MM does not intend to sync when using 'send to' so the behavior I was seeing was as intended but misleading due to the 'synchronize' in the menu entry. If you know the product so well that you can put down newbies why not simply point out that 'send to' is not meant to sync?

Thanks for pointing out the automatic sync. Sorry for not reading the manual first.
