Please try out the 3.6.1 Beta

As promised, here is the SharePod 3.6.1 Beta. Please try it out if you have any of the following issues -
  • Running on a 64bit OS
  • Using an iPod Shuffle and getting an Xml error
  • System.ArgumentException on load
Either post your feedback as a comment to this post, or email me for more complex feedback :)

Outstanding 3.6 Issues

From your emails and comments, there are 4 main issues with v3.6:

1. Lack of 64bit support
  • This might be really easy or really hard. Expect a test release tomorrow.
2. On new iPods, cannot select songs from menus after using SharePod
  • Currently under investigation!
3. iPod Shuffles give an Xml error
  • Will be fixed in 3.6.1
4. System.ArgumentException on some iPods
  • Will be fixed in 3.6.1

If you have experienced any of the above problems (except #2), please check back here tomorrow to try a test candidate with hopefully fixes for problems #1,3,4.

For those of you waiting for a SharePodLib release, I will be releasing that once SharePod itself is stable again.

thanks for the feedback!

Where is SharePod?

Over the last few days SharePod 3.6 has been with beta testers. The good news is it works perfectly with the new iPods!

There are a couple of small issues with Windows Vista (SharePod needs to run with Admin rights) , and I just need to work through these in the next few days before the release.

Things are looking good for a weekend release :)

SharePod update in the works

SharePod will be supporting the latest iPods very soon (within 2 weeks!).

Thanks to wtbw's example c++ code for the new database format, it is being ported to SharePod as I write this :)

If you have a new iPod and want to be a SharePod beta tester, please email me!

*Edit: Please stop emailing me about beta testing :) I have had lots of responses (thanks!) and dont need any more at this point!
