nano 4G - song disappeared
Hi,
I've just tried Yamipod with my brand new iPod nano 4 Generation.

I've already had some songs put with iTunes 8 on it. The problem is that the iPod now shows 0 songs but displays 5/8 GB free ! If I connect it again, yamipod sees all the song correctly.

Any ideas ?

thanks,
Tex

Hi Tex,

I just downloaded yamipod into my pc and ipod nano and it hapenned exactly the same to me that it did to you. All the songs have just disappeared from the ipod, although it says that almost all the 4GB are used.

Have you had any breakthrough in this question?
Have you found out what to do?

Thanks
Aaricia

Re: nano 4G - song disappeared
This sounds like it's related to an issue I've been hitting against with other iPod management software.

As of iTunes8, and newer iPod/iPhone firmware, Apple changed the iTunesDB hashing algorithm. More details can be found here: http://bluwiki.com/go/Ipodhash

Re: nano 4G - song disappeared
Well I think I know the solution. I had the same problem and this is what I did.

First of all, check to be sure you can view hidden folders if not. go to tools-->Folder Options, select the view tab and select the radio button "show hidden files".
Go to your ipod in my computer(in my case G:), you should see a folder iPod_Control,enter the folder, you should see another folder yamipod, enter the folder and copy a file named iTunesDB.
go back to [yourIpod]:/iPod_Control/iTunes and paste the file iTunesDB. it should ask if you want to replace it.click yes.
After you eject it I guess your Ipod should work fine.

This is the cause of the problem...after yamipod works on ur ipod it updates the iTunesDB to one not recognized by your iPod and iTunes.

Re: nano 4G - song disappeared
Hello everybody,
sorry but I somehow forgot this thread. Well to fix my library on the ipod I simply followed the repair procedure as explained here:

http://www.yamipod.com/main/modules/docs/help/corruptedipod.php


So it looks like yamipod is not compatible with iTunes 8 .. :(

New version of YamiPod (1.8) should work with new nano 4G.

Re: nano 4G - song disappeared
THank you for your help, but my ipod is still saying there are no songs and no videos on it. There are pictures, but nothing else. Do you have any other tips? I am desperate.

Completely desperate to recover my music and videos!!!
