    'Remember Playback Position' DOES NOT WORK

    OK, this is a revised post, more clearly identified. Here's what I'm getting on my 4G color iPod, with iTunes 5 installed on my PC. * An mp3 file (which opens perfectly in other applications, I'm sure there's nothing wrong with it). * About 4 hours long (3rd part of a book). * Used the...

    Instant Deep Sleep with homebrew files?

    I've been getting a couple of reports from listeners of "homebrew" audiobooks (.m4b files) that after playing such files their iPod goes into Deep Sleep mode after playing such files. Instead of pausing and waking up normally, the iPod resets (and loses the last bookmark). I haven't been able...

    Submitting software for inclusion in 'Downloads'

    Can anyone tell me how to formally submit software for inclusion in the forum "Downloads" section? Is there a review process? Do the forum managers ever report back to you on why they are including/not including software in "Downloads"? I ask because I've been unable to figure it out, and had...

    MarkAble bug reports - please post here

    Would those trying out my MarkAble software please either email me directly with bug reports (to support05 @ rightword.com.au), or if you feel there are issues worthy of general discussion, post them to this thread. They are getting a bit lost in the "Unfair slurs" thread - which should...

    Music behind audio books?

    Just canvassing opinion from forum members about the use of music in audio books. Lots of audio book publishers seem to think it adds atmosphere, excitement or something to have a musical introduction to a book. My own opinion is that it's a damn nuisance. The music background to the start of...

    The Mysteries of Bookmarks

    In developing what I hope will be a useful bit of software ("MarksMan") to manage bookmarks on the iPod, I'm discovering many of the complexities of what the iPod does with bookmarks. Because my software peeks directly at the iTunes database on the iPod I can see exactly when, and under what...

    Wanted - Beta testers for Bookmark Manager Software (Windows)

    Any interest in Bookmark Manager Software (Windows)? I'm currently developing some software to manage audiobook bookmarks on the iPod. It tries to fulfill some of a "wish list" I posted here some months ago. The software - tentatively called "MarksMan" will: * connect to your iPod * list all...

    Maximum file size for adding to iTunes?

    Without going into the reasons why I wanted to do it, I just discovered that if I try to add a WAV file of more than a few hundred MB to iTunes, it just never appears there. I've tried several different ways: add file; add folder; drag and drop. It just never ends up in iTunes. This is...

    iPod skipping words in Audible books

    This may be a slight cross-posting, as I'm not sure where to place it, here or in the iPod problems forum. Recently I've noticed when listening to audio books that my iPod seems to be skipping small bits - a few words or a phrase here or there. I can't easily determine if this is bad encoding...

    Wishlist - how can the iPod handle books better?

    I thought it might be useful to hear comments from others about how Apple / Audible / 3rd Party developers could improve the way that the iPod handles audio books in future. My impression is that the audio book handling was just band-aided on after the iPod was originally designed for playing...

    Bookmark database - hacking into it?

    There are a number of really clever software people out there, smart enough to write code to allow us to move music files off the iPod onto our PCs or Macs, etc, and do lots of other clever stuff. I'm just wondering whether anyone has found out the details of how the Audible (and now maybe...
