The restored files are all screwed up. Mis-labled songs, overlapping songs, etc...

On my iPod, the tracks are stored in a seemingly random grouping in several folders - like some kind of hash table. The track names are truncated, but the mp3 data is not "overlapped" (is that what you meant?). Maybe your iPod used the Apple HFS+ filesystem? If that is the case, all I can do is point you at the Gnupod/Linux kernel 2.6 references in the POD. Sorry.

If the mp3 data is ok, then you might be able to use the import_ipod function to read the binary iTunesDB restored off the ipod. Just point $ipod_itunesdb at the restored iTunesDB. The original caveats still apply though...

Check out the Gnupod link - it is written in perl, by people who have actually studied the iPod. They could be able to advise you further.

Good luck, man. /msg me if you need more help.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
