iTunes is a great music player and organizer. Unfortunately iTunes is made to only synchronize with iPods. Not everyone own an iPod, though Apple certainly would have loved that. How great would it not be if I could synchronize my non-iPod MP3 player, my Playstation Portable and my Axim with my iTunes playlist? Enter: iTunes Agent!
iTunes Agent is a small application resting in your system tray constantly looking for new MP3 players and other music capable devices connecting to your system. When a device it recognizes is connected to the system, it will create a playlist for the device in iTunes and it will synchronize that list with tracks on your device.
You may then modify this list, add and remove tracks, before you tell the iTunes Agent to synchronize the list with your player.
iTunes Agent requires .Net Framework 2.0 Final. Download from here.
On the Axim side, you would need another utility such Soltice Card Export II to make the Storage cards to be recognized as mass storage USB drives to your PC. (And this is the only cost item to you $15, trial is available however)
Here are some screenshots from iTunes Agent.
Right mouse on the iTunes icon, select preference and make sure you have the below settings:
The Axim storage card can be shown as Generic Player, or you can create an entry called Axim
On the Axim storage card, a directory must be created at root level with the name ITAGENERIC or you can select your own dummy directory and give it a name, e.g Axim, don’t forget to put a D: in front, of the Rec pattern box (this is not your drive letter, D stands for directory). And of course select a directory to store your files (on your Axim storage card)
Once, you connect via USB your Axim with mass storage mode (using Card Export) and you launch iTunes Agent…iTunes wiill launch and a playlist (either Generic Player or Axim). Just browse your audio/video contents, select them, right mouse click and select add to playlist–Axim or Generic Player.
Right mouse click on the iTunes Agent (on the system tray) and select Sync…Voila…
All the files belong to Axim playlist will be copied to your Axim.
