Setting up iTunes
How to use plugin
Click "Tools> Turn iPod & iPhone Driver on" menu item. Connect your device to computer. Setup device (auto) synchronization settings. If you need to finish working with iPod/iPhone right-click on device and select "Safely Remove".
You can assign a hotkey or toolbar button to "iPod & iPhone Driver: Turn on" command.
If you are using this plugin your device library will always be synchronous with iTunes library.
Plugin makes copy of track if track is format-converted due to device settings or if track artwork wasn't embedded (iDevices support only embedded artworks). Track copies are stored in "AppData\iPod & iPhone Driver" folder. Track copy is automatically deleted if track is no longer contained in device media library.
Go to 'Edit> Preferences> Plugins'. Click 'Uninstall'. Plugin will delete all automatically created files (e.g. settings), but you need to exit MusicBee and manually delete all files that were included in plugin .zip.
