This software creates a backup file on both iPod and PC, or just iPod? How large is the this file?

Posted by Alan on August 12, 2003 at 1:19 PM (CDT)


Yupp, on both. The backupfile is small though, mine are like 200k but if u have a large database, it could be like 1mb. But, 1mb is nothing! :)

Does this work using a USB2.0 connection, or just via a firewire connection?

Posted by Shaun on August 14, 2003 at 6:54 AM (CDT)


Yes, i think so. Let us know :-)

How about adding an eject button for completeness?

Did anyone else by this guy a beer apart from me?

Great job!

I downloaded the latest version, when i try to update the ipod data base I get a wrong path statement. The path is on the c: drive and I cant add anything on the line like c: program files… anyone have a answer. using windows xp home edition on a sony laptop… Thanks in advance!

Posted by James Price on August 18, 2003 at 9:28 PM (CDT)


Hi! First dock your ipod. Wait 10-15 sec, then open the program. Now there is a dropdown list that default c: if you havent putted in the right path. Now, click on that dropdown list and find the station for your ipod (on my system its i:) Then it works.

Yesterday i tried to make it with the function in MusicMatch. Forget it…

Today i found your app. Very fast, very functional, very good!

Thanks EsspeN.
I was a bit concerned about downloading this.But It ‘s great !
Took seconds to download & did just under
6,000 tracks in less than 2 seconds I did not have time to count! Unbelievable.
I have a new 30 g IPOD using MMatch.
Thanks again great stuff.

This is fantastic! I thought I was going to need an amp for my er4-s etymotics when using my Ipod… Not now! Prior to this software my er4s’ were lacking power and needed an amp, now they are fantastic with no distortion and the clarity is better too!! Awesome.. thanks EsspeN.

I’ve got a 2nd Generation iPod from the US (so I don’t think it has any volume restrictions at all) - is there any point of me downloading this ?

Posted by Rish on August 21, 2003 at 4:02 PM (CDT)


Not really.. The eu ipod is very very low. If u have a weird headset or if u really need much much higher volume when u connect it to some other output devices, maybe.. This software is ment for the EU ipods, but also works on US.

Posted by EsspeN on August 21, 2003 at 4:05 PM (CDT)


Actually… this software is much less covinent to the fact that you could install the US firmware on EU iPods… I remember there was actually an article showing how this could be done. It requires you to use either OSX or Linux (because Windows does not have device files)

Essentially, the EU iPods and the US iPods are the same in terms of hardware, its just that the firmware puts a cap on the volume, and there is no need to update every entry in the iPod’s DB when it is actually possible to simply change to a US firmware.

WOW! what a fantastic piece of software, Thanks , have to turn the volume down now!
