    my reporting hasn't worked either. not reporting songs from volumes other than the startup disc is stupid, as is not reporting songs played on iPhones...

    can you report songs played from yr iPod?

    and what do you mean by:
    "not reporting songs from volumes other than the startup disc is stupid"?

    i sold my iPod (along with the RAZR and Nokia 770 whose collective functionality the iPhone supplanted -- yay for convoluted sentences).

    about the startup volume deal: i have my iTunes library on an external drive. Audioscrobbler only looks at iTunes libraries that are within /Users/username/Music/iTunes Music Library or whatever the actual path is.

    from http://www.last.fm/help/faq/?category=iPod+Scrobbling :

    ah, so that only impacts tunes scrobbled via yr iPod? i wasn't trying to report those anyway.

    edit - i did get my foobar / scrobbler worked out, but still no luck w/ my squeezebox.

    nope, even tunes played from the computer/iTunes don't get reported since they all live on the external drive.

    Funny, I keep all of my music on a partition of my hard drive and have no issues submitting tracks to last.fm - not to mention all my iPod tracks usually get synced as well. At least, I think they are?






    EDIT: I don't really tag a lot of music though, I wonder if that affects my OMI or not? Interesting. I don't get out there on last.fm that much, but whenever I do I always think I should use it more.

    something's screwy then, because i have none of my data on my source drive, and it does get reported.
