The current status is that:
- Non-iOS iPods (iPod Classic, iPod Mini, iPod Nano, iPod Shuffle): Are compatible with MediaMonkey 3 and 4 after updating to iTunes 10.5
- iOS devices (iPhone, 3G, 3GS, 4 and iPod Touch, iPad) running iOS 3, 4: Work with MediaMonkey 4 (but not version 3) after updating to iTunes 10.5
- iOS devices (iPhone, 3G, 3GS, 4 and iPod Touch, iPad) running iOS 5: Are recognized by MediaMonkey 4 (and not version 3) but can't natively sync with MediaMonkey after updating to iTunes 10.5
Note however, that some users are experiencing high CPU utilization issues in relation to iOS devices
after updating to iTunes 10.5. So for now, you can upgrade to iTunes 10.5, but don't upgrade your iOS device firmware to iOS 5 as the device will not sync with MediaMonkey post-upgrade.
If you must upgrade to iOS 5, or if you've already done so, then you can continue to use MediaMonkey to manage your music, and to sync via iTunes by using the iTunes MediaMonkey 4 Plugin
(a similar plugin
for MM3 is also available via the support site). It bypasses MediaMonkey's native iOS synchronization routines, and instead treats iTunes as a hardware device, and relies on iTunes to do the actual file transfer.
