The latest release of iPhone Explorer focused on rewriting the drag-and-drop code for transferring files from the iPod or iPhone to the file system. We home that this resolves a bug that some Windows 7 users were having which prevented them from from successfully transferring files. If the problem presists with the new version, please e-mail us and let us know.

This version improves many little things, ranging from subtle icon changes, to a redesigned splash screen to adjusting the file names of images that are transferred. The busy indicator at the bottom has had its functionality restored and the quick-reference guide has also been updated to included comments about the new picture transfer feature in Pod to PC.

After receiving a few more Photo Database files from Pod to Mac fans out there, we have modified our Photo Database parser again to broaden its compatibility. Various other minor changes have been made as well.

Iexplorer4 icon thumb Pod to Mac - 3.204

We have been working hard on the Pod to Mac parser algorithm for the photo database. As a comment, I would like to state that technically, hacking this database is a lot tougher than the music database. In contrast to the music databases, the picture database is designed such that not only does every iPod have a unique image format, but there are even multiple image formats for the same iPod models depending on which firmware you are using.

With this release of Pod to Mac we have knocked out more bugs from the photo database parser. Additionally we streamlined the loading of the iTunes Music Library.xml file which has increased program load times by roughly 10 seconds for every 1,000 tracks you have in iTunes.
