Pod to Mac 3.02

In Pod to Mac 3.02 numerous bugs have been fixed and several features have been added. Highlights include: (1) Automatic disk-mode hijacking, a feature which switches iPods into disk mode as soon as they are connected to the computer so users can avoid the dangerous "Sync" steps in iTunes typically required to enable disk mode. (2) real-time iPod unloading has been added and now lets you swap between multiple iPods without having to restart the program (this feature existed before for iPhones, but now works on all iPods). (3) A bug causing tracks to transfer as read-only has been resolved and now playcounts and more are being recovered 100% of the time (in internal tests). (4) Several other bug fixes have been added.
