gnupod: doesn't read playcount data from 2gen ipod shuffle

Bug #311423 reported by Peter Maydell on 2008-12-25
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gnupod-tools (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnupod-tools

gnupod-tools doesn't seem to be able to read the playcount data from a 2nd gen ipod shuffle.

Repro instructions:

 gnupod_INIT -m /media/IPOD
 gnupod_addsong -m /media/IPOD *.flac --decode=aac
 mktunes -m /media/IPOD
 umount /media/IPOD

Play some of the tracks on the ipod. Then plug it back in and do:

tunes2pod -m /media/IPOD --force
gnupod_search -m /media/IPOD --view=ialtrc

Expected results: the CNT field for the played tracks should be non-zero.
Actual results: it's always zero.

I think this is because gnupod doesn't support reading the iTunesStats that the shuffle stores this playcount data in. If you run gtkpod then it gets the play counts correct (because libgpod knows how to read this file).
