1. This script seems to “work,” but also has several problems:

    1. Just by looking at the script in Automator, I get this barely intelligible error if I don’t have, on the iPod, a playlist with the same name as the iPod:

    AppleScript Error

    iTunes Got an error: Can’t get name of every user playlist of some source whose name of it = “XXX”. (-1728)

    where XXX is the name of the iPod.

    2. Complaints about, IIRC, not finding a “domain pair” or something, with something like “com doug YYY” for two of the sub-scripts this one is calling (where YYY is the name of the script). I can’t repro it right now because the script is running.

    3. A few other flaky error messages seemingly having to do with the set/restore encoding pair.

    I’ve got no Automator fu and lost what little AppleScript fu I once had, so I’m in no position to debug these.

  2. I was REALLY hoping this would work because I don’t want to listen to Lossless files on my Nano. Unfortunately it seems to be a problem with Doug’s Actions for iTunes vol 1. No problem down converting the files, but there are bugs in “Copy Tracks to iPod”. This hasn’t worked reliably once.
