iPod Shuffle & Song Tracking
just got the iPod shuffle
fresh outta the box...etc
today- played some songs on it...etc
Go to Sync it on the machine
and find out that
nothing get's 'logged'
ie- it doesn't show up in my itunes as having played any of the songs
what'd i do?
or rather - what didn't i do
big reason i ask this is b/c i use AudioScrobbler
and i wanna keep a log of my played songs...etc
also i wanna keep a long of them on my computer - ie in Itunes
for those who care
i'm using a 12" Pb Rev C most up to date iTunes...etc
10.3...etc- all up to date

It's my understanding that because the iPod Shuffle has no clock, it cannot update last played date/time. It should, however, update the Play Count.
There is some discussion of this issue, and possible workarounds, at iPodLounge. (I don't have a Shuffle, so I've no idea how useful)

read that site u posted
thanks for the direction
as i looked closer- it was updating the count, just not the time-
thus Audio-Scrobber doesn't pick it up
and itunes 'recently played' doesn't pick up on it either...
maybe time to return and buy a mini.

macosxhints.com posted an AppleScript that will update the last played date when you sync it up. I downloaded it but haven't tried it yet. Could be way to keep it updated.

I'd like to ask an innocent question: Why do you need to know the time a track was played?
