Title: sync_podcasts perl script
Post by: bassmannate on May 28, 2010, 06:58:23 PM
Hello!
Just discovered Rockbox for my Sansa Fuze v2 (well more like waited for a year and checked in every so often to see what's going on.)

Anyway, I'm trying to use the sync_podcasts script found here: http://www.mattcaron.net/linux/scripts/sync_podcasts and it doesn't quite want to work for me. I have my fuze in MSC mode and can see the directory structure of the memory. When I run the script, it fills in the log but doesn't actually copy the podcasts over.

I'm using Banshee to aggregate but I can't find a way to get it to put podcasts into the podcast folder (instead, it just puts all audio in one folder) So instead, I'm trying to use a separate script. Anyone have any experience getting this to work? The first reference I found of it was in the mailing list archive for Rockbox.

Update: Ok, I figured out that the script was somehow looking at the podcasts I had on the MTP portion of the device. I didn't realize it could do that. I removed the files from the MTP part of the device and put it back in MSC mode. Seems to be working fine now. Next step is now to see if I can figure out how to whip up some tagnavi to divide everything out into a menu the way I want. Wish me luck!
