Sharepod 2.0 Released for Apple iPod

By tonyhughes Hughes, in , posted: 16-Apr-2006 21:22

Jeffrey Harris has released version 2.0 of his iPod music transfer software, SharePod. If you are seeking to copy mp3/aac/mp4 files from iPod to PC, forget about paying for software like "iPod Access", "CopyPod" or "Anapod Explorer" - Sharepod does it for free, and whats more, it does it well.

SharePod is freeware (Jeffrey asks for donations to his late night snack fund), and can be downloaded from www.sturm.net.nz. You simply download the zip file, and unzip the contents directly into your iPod after enabling disk use.

There is no software to install on the PC, and you can simply plug your iPod into any W2K/XP machine, open the iPod drive in Windows Explorer, run the SharePod executable sitting on the iPod itself, and you have full access to your iTunes playlists as well as all individual songs. You can then use SharePod to transfer the files to the host PC.

This makes the software useful if your PCs hard drive crashes and burns, and you need to restore all your music from your iPod, or if you upgrade to a new PC, and need an easy way to transfer your music.

Perhaps you have a collection of music that is not copyrighted, or to which you own the copyright (singers/songwriters/bands) - you could easily plug your iPod into friends & familys PCs to share your music around.

Sharepod is also very useful for attaching to a PC at work to play music, as the software has a built in media player - no transfer of files or installation required on the host PC. Very cool.

From SharePods readme.txt file:
Version 2.0 - Whats new?

    * AAC, MP4, M4A, M4B file import!  The most requested feature for SharePod has finally been implemented!  Now you can copy these file types straight to the iPod without converting
      to MP3 first.
    * Random play mode in the Media Player.
    * Winamp-type song progress bar in the Media Player. Use it to jump to a point in a song.
    * Smart Playlist preservation. Previous versions of SharePod converted iTunes Smart Playlists into standard playlists. Version 2.0+ keeps them as Smart Playlists

10 out of 10.

Yes. Sharepod is a good tool that helps us a lot.But the latest version of SharePod requires Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0. I personally use Cucusoft iPhone/iTouch/iPod to Computer Transfer. It works very well for my iTouch. It helps me to transfer my songs/videos/photos from ipod to computer directly and safety. It even has a step by step guide.

The boots are great for everyday! You can just slip them on, with, out without socks and your ready to go. Just make sure that you weather proof them first! I have had one pair of UGGS for five years and I am still wearing them.

I'm a diabetic with poor circulation and so my toes almost never warm up.. I ordered these ugg boots hoping they would help and they did the job pretty well. The inside is very plush, my feet even feel close to sweating when the air con is up and the house is warm. The upper is a little tight, I wouldn't recommend these for larger people.
