An example situation:
Let's say I have a song on my iPod (in iTunes
Devices > iPod > Music) and it shows a play count of, let's say 16. I disconnect my iPod, play the song, then connect it again and check the play count again. I would expect it to be, of course, 17. However the play count almost doubles every time (for a song with 16 plays, I suddenly got 31).
This is quite a problem for me, as I want to scrobble my tracks to last.fm, but I can't if my play count increases on some freaking exponential scale (when I do what I described above (disconnect, play the track once, connect + sync), the last.fm scrobbler suddenly has 16 scrobbles of the same song to upload).
Is there any known way to fix this? Most of discussions I read about this were years old and without any solution.
