I'm curious as to how everyone here transfers music onto thier MP3 players.

I've been using Rockbox on my nano and loving it, but the problem is how I can automaticaly transfer a selection of my music (I have far more than 4 gigs) to my Nano. What I woudl love is something like foo_pod that works with any kind of usb mass storage device.

I'll check it out. I might be able to get that to do what I want by creating ap laylist in foobar and transfering the files in the playlist with this software.

here's a nifty little shell script for anyone with an mp3 player who runs linux (or any other unix like system with rsync installed)

the mount variable specifies the location where the player is mounted in the filesystem (in my case an iaudio x5l). the Rsync variable basically just says to transfer anything that is different, and if i delete a folder on my comp to delete it on the player as well.


i invoke this by simply typing ./iaudio.sh at the command line and i get a super fast update (because rsync only transfers the differences between the sync locations)

chris@tux ~ $ cat /usr/bin/iaudio.sh
#! /bin/sh

MOUNT="/media/iaudio"
RSYNC="rsync --modify-window=1 --delete -rtv"

$RSYNC /home/chris/music/ $MOUNT/music/

See, I can do that with rockbox, but I don't want to manualy pick out a selection of my music evertiem I want some new tunes. I would much prefer that a new selection of my music get transfered everytime I connect the nano.

If your player is UMS complaint and you are on windows try creating a breifcase on your nano to sync files or try using a free program like synctoy . Or if REALLY want to manage your files easily try mediamonkey.
