I have registered the product. I thought that with the registered product, iTunes would be aware of what I had listened to. However this doesn't seem to be the case. Is there anything I can do to enable this feature, or are there plans to implement it in the future? Most of my smart playlists in iTunes are based on how often or how recently I have listened to a track. I would love this feature and would pay extra for it, if it doesn't already exist somehow!

I'm on a Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, with MediaSync 1.0.2.428 running on Vista.

Hi,

Back-sync of certain metadata (such as play count) is on the road-map for future versions.

The Nokia devices I have tested, though, do not support play count metadata. Not sure about the 5800, however.

How's the 5800 working for you (just curious)? What kind of transfer speeds are you seeing?

Best.

It was terrible the first time, it took something like 45 minutes to sync about 6GB of music. Incremental syncing is a lot faster of course. I will sync today and let you know the throughput I am getting.

I wish you could just use Mass Storage mode, I think it would be a lot faster!

I can think of no reason why mass storage mode would be any faster in transfer rate. I'm really hoping Nokia ups the transfer speed of their USB bus with devices like the upcoming N97 which ships with quite a lot of memory built in.

Around 600-700K/sec according to the display. It is widely variable.

Sorry for the confusion about the Media Transfer mode. I had heard it was slower, I have no data to back it up.

The only thing that would make it substantially faster would be the use of a separate card reader. But there are disadvantages to this as well (the phone would need to scan the whole storage for new media when you put it back, and there's no way to sync updates in track metadata to the phone).

The fastest device I've seen with Media Transfer mode support is a Sony Walkman MP3 player (about 3MB/s, which isn't too shoddy). The Sony Ericsson phones have also become pretty fast (approx 2MB/s) in their latest incarnations.

The S60 devices have hovered at about 600-700KB/s since the N95. I asked you for your experience as I was hoping for an improvement with the 5800.

For what it's worth, file transfer in PC Suite mode on the Nokia is similar in speed.

Best.
