I just want to people know of my experience with webos 1.4 before someone tries to fix something that isn't broken like me.
Since 1.4 allows music to be synchronized to the Pre without it being in iPod mode, and mediamonkey supports syncing to non-ipod devices, I figured I would delete the itunes database on my Pre by disabling mediasync from device info and using the usb-mode since the itunes database takes up around 200-300mb for me. So for whatever reason, when I did this, the tracks no longer would sync to my predefined folder path, being "Music\<Artist>\<Album>\<Track#:2> <Title>" and instead would sync all tracks to the root folder only. Believe, I checked and I have been using mediamonkey for years, I also noticed that in "Set Destination Wizard" the folder selector for the main directory had a "-" sign over it and would not allow me to click it.
Anyways I did not notice this right away so when I synchronized my tracks, it deleted all the ones in the proper folder structure, and halfway through syncing, I noticed that they were all just going to the root of the device, so about 3hrs later and a few resets of my device, since it continued to insist on syncing only to the root of my device, even when I re-enabled media sync, I got no where with this and am in the middle of putting everything back to the way it was.
If anyone has had any success in syncing with usb-mode instead of mediasync, please let me know since I would like to rid myself of the useless files in ipod_control otherwise take this as a warning. I just find this extremely odd since that is how I would sync music to my palm zire 72, my old samsung cell phone, and my gps, none of which mimic iPods and are only simple usb mass storage devices like the Palm Pre when not using mediasync.
Edit: Exact Problem I was having, except with the Droid http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/vie...p?f=12&t=44943
