My iTunes database on my Nano as been corrupted several times now and reformatting it is a lot more work than is necessary... surely there must be some tool to rebuild the itunesDB file by now??

I searched for awhile but came up blank. blink.gif

Hey,
Thanks for replies...

I saw Anapod Explorer but it is not free and I don't care for a big software suite!! I already have PoddoX, they just sadly never got the repair feature implemented.

I also tried EphPod but it doesn't seem to actually work.

I would never use iTunes... I'd rather just wipe the iPod clean myself, but it's a big waste of time to have to transfer all the music off it and then right back, just to rebuild 1 indexing file!

Someone really should make a tool to do this. wink.gif

As for foo_dop, I saw that but it seems old so I question whether it would work with the newer iPods.

The last update was September 28, 2008. That does not seem old to me. I have a Classic and it works perfectly. It should work fine with your Nano, as well. "Someone" did make a tool, so take advantage of it and try it.

Thanks I'll try that, I thought it was last updated in 2006 or something.

You mean that you don't have your music files stored on your computer as well as your iPod? That is a big problem.
I store music in FLAC on my harddrive and then convert them to mp3 for the ipod.
