Updated: iPod DB source code for Delphi

Update: Source Code for reading and writing is No longer for sale, because it was based on ephpod I’m not allowed to sell it but I did not know this. Tuneout application can be downloaded for free here.

The source code is for Borland Delphi programming language, it allows you to make an application that uploads your mp3 files to the Windows iPod and also read what the person has on their iPod. Email me when you have paid $5.00 Canadian using PayPal, and I will email you the source code.

I love how when something new comes up, or different, or unique people have to be “unfriendly” about it (I would use another term, but not here). It’s a service he’s providing for a very good price. Now if he’s selling someone’s else code, that’s a different story.

well this is an older version of it we are rewritting the Write to iPod feature so its not included in this build….but with a few donations it could speed the process.

Okay, I’ll go around the web and copy sourcecode and sell it for $5.
Download the Linux kernel sourcecode for just $5 today! Hey, it’s just $5, don’t sue me for ripping your work :)

I hope iPodlounge shows better judgement next time. A lot of the ‘news’ here appear more and more to be advertisements.

“Download the Linux kernel sourcecode for just $5 today! Hey, it’s just $5, don’t sue me”

What is this, moron season? Linux source code is free - anyone charging you money for the source code is just trying their arm, they are stealing from the Linux community. You can always find it for free, legally, someplace else.

Must be moron season. Please read the comment twice, and try to use your brain at least once.

The point is that the guy selling the code didn’t “know” that he could not sell something give out for free.

Man, I just looked at your website, youre *still* trying to get people to pay $5 for Ephpod source code. 

Ephpod has been around since the first days of the iPod scene, and to have some punk trying to make money out of it, when Ephpod itself has always been free, really sucks!

It actually says donations you fuck! Im allowed to get donations its not selling it. Tuneout is not EphPod its based on read and write code from EphPod but it has been changed greatly if you compare the browsing you can tell the amount that went to modifying the code. Joe send me a email with text of read and write code its not like i could just drop it into Delphi and compile it. Anyway i didn’t realize i wasn’t able to sell modified code ok…and if somebody thinks modified means changing one line go take up programming…..anyway its not being sold once joe told me even the modified code can’t be sold…it was just a mistake.

Thank god for ephpod..I don’t use it anymore since itunes came out but that was probably the NICEST thing that guy could do. He made something that PC users could use for FREE…

to ask for donations based on his/her work is a sleazy thing to do.. You are better off just going to the streets and begging for change..I would have much more respect for you if you did that..

Check December issue of Dr. Dobb’s. I believe you can get sources (not EphPod) for free, unless you are not subscriber..
