Sync your mp3 Player with iTunes

This script is intented for those of us with no such luck to have an iPod (I had one and it broke… :frowning: ) and are using another… thing…

It works pretty nice… but has a few bugs and a missing part I thought I had added but just realized I didn’t hehe…

Bugs: sometimes it copies a file and then crashes when trying to copy it again (which if you take a look should never happen).
Missing part: (depending on player) It should check if the file is really a .mp3 file… and not a .aac or something else, but as said… that depends if your player supports other media types

It would be great if someone could take a look at it and find out why it doesn’t work ok.

set the VolumeDir to "/Volumes/" as POSIX file as alias
set the MountedVolumes to list folder VolumeDir without invisibles
set PathToMusicFiles to "Untitled:TUNER:" -- or whatever the path to where you have to put the files...
set iTunesSyncPlaylist to "Mp3 Playlist" -- or whatever you called it...

if "Untitled" is in MountedVolumes then -- or whatever your mp3 reports it self to be.
	set PlaylistFiles to {}

		repeat with i from 1 to PlaylistCount
