Mediafour announces XPlay 3 iPod add-on for Windows

Mediafour has announced the upcoming release of the latest version of XPlay, its iPod add-on software for Windows. XPlay 3 offers many new features and improvements, including the ability to copy music, playlists, pictures and video to and from an iPod, the ability to use an iPod with Windows Explorer, Media Player and Media Center, lost song recovery, automatic conversion of unprotected WMA files, and the ability to auto-sync music and pictures from Windows Media Player. Also, XPlay 3 works with both Mac and Windows iPods, and allows Mac iPods to work with iTunes for Windows. Designed for Windows XP and Vista, XPlay 3 works with all iPod models except for iPod touch and iPhone. XPlay 3 will be available on February 4, 2008 for $30, and upgrades from previous versions will run $15. Any purchase of XPlay 2 on or after November 1 qualifies for a free upgrade to XPlay 3.

I’ve alerted Storage Appliance Corp., the maker of Clickfree, to a problem caused by XPlay 3 when a Clickfree device is plugged into a Windows PC with XPlay 3 installed.  Essentially, when installed on a Windows PC, XPlay 3 renders the Clickfree device inoperable since XPlay 3 causes the Clickfree device to be recognized as an iPod on the Windows PC, setting the Clickfree_System drive to the HFS file system rather than the required CDFS file system. I had to uninstall XPlay 3 in order to correct the problem.  Technician’s at Storage Appliance Corp. were apparently unaware of the software incompatibility issue between XPlay 3 and a Clickfree device running on a Windows PC as I had to figure my problem out for myself. I thought your company might want to know this, if you didn’t know about the problem already.
