iPod crashes after synching with MM4

Post by martialartsguy » Sun Nov 20, 2011 11:27 pm

Here's the deal:

1. I plug in my iPod Classic 160gb (latest version).
2. The iPod scans.
3. I run Add/Remove Playstat to update my track plays.
4. I synch my iPod & eject.
5. I press "Music" then "Playlists" on the iPod
6. The iPod essentially crashes & the Apple logo shows & the iPod restarts.

Anyone else having this problem? This has happened to me twice today.

I am running into the same problem. My iPod Classic 80GB crashes/reboots when trying to play any song after syncing with MM4.

Yesterday, after installing MM4 and the Codec Pack for the first time, I reformatted my iPod Classic.
Then I synced, which automatically converts FLAC to AAC. The song names and album art show up fine on the iPod, but nothing will play. If I try to move the song position forward from 0:00, the iPod crashes.

I figured out my problem, it was my fault. The auto conversion needs to be set to M4A rather than AAC.
martialartsguy probably has a different problem.

Yup, I don't have any auto-conversion set up except what's default.

Anyone have some help ideas? I moved from MM3 to MM4 beta just to avoid this issue, as I've had to return 2 iPods to place of purchase for this same reason. I'd hate to have to go to iTunes (I'm an MM lifer!).

I did a full Restore on the iPod, then re-syched it. No problems.

However, once I went back in, scanned & re-syched my plays, ejected through MM4, I still get a crash. Anyone?

Final note:

I installed the latest version of iTunes, restored the iPod and re-synched. Still getting these crashes. Any help? I'm about to ditch MM4 for the beta that didn't do this...either that or iTunes. :(

iPod Crashes post-MM4 synch

Post by martialartsguy » Tue Nov 29, 2011 11:59 am

Here's the lowdown:

1. I had no problems with the below using pre-1459 betas.
2. I plug in my iPod & let MM4 scan
3. I synch, then manually eject using MM4
4. Once my iPod loads, I go into either "Music" or even "Playlists" and the iPod fails & restarts.

I'm using a 160gb iPod Classic (latest version), and the 1459 MM4. This happens consistently. I've tried the following to fix the issue:

1. Restored the iPod using iTunes
2. Updated iTunes to the latest, then restored again

Once I do a restore of my iPod, this issue doesn't happen; only when I synch after listening to some tunes & following steps 2-4 above does the iPod crash.

(Sorry for the dupe post, mods, but no love over on the Bug Forum).

I took the following (drastic) measures to temporarily fix this issue, since 1461 does not rectify the crash:

1. Uninstall 1461 & do a full install of 1450.
2. Rebuild Database & Playlists.
3. Restore my iPod using iTunes.
4. Rebuild the iPod on 1450.
5. Play a track & then let MM 4.1450 scan the iPod.
6. Run Add/Remove Playstat to update the track.
7. Eject.

No problems, but I don't want to keep using an unstable beta. I have also updated the Bug report, but have not heard anything from the team. Any chance of getting this looked at?

Thanks.

My 80 gig ipod shows up only in the device list. And when I tell MM to sync it, MM immediately crashes.
Always worked flawlessly in MM 3.
