Does anyone know how to get a Windows-based ipod and Last.fm to work together?

I've justed start setting up Last.fm (audioscrobbler), and I've got it to update songs played on iTunes at my computer. As far as I can tell though, it's not updating songs played on my iPod (although the play counts go up in iTunes). I found a solution for Mac (I think) but couldn't find anything similar for Windows. Any ideas?

iScrobbler. Works a charm. Java-based.

(or rather, "audiopod goes iscrobbler", since it's a combination of two earlier projects. I think.)

gleuschk: are you sure that works on the Windows version? It worked a treat on my Mac, but I read that iScrobbler for Windows wouldn't update last.fm based on your recently played playlist from your iPod. I'm yet to test this since switching back to a Windows box, but will look later.

I'm using jscrob2 and it works perfectly.

nthdegx, yep, it's what I use on my Windows box (and, as the link says, "It works only with iTunes for Windows".)

I'm also using jscrob2.
Things to keep in mind:
1. It will not submit a song if it was paused before reaching the minimum submission time (half of the song or 240 seconds).
2. Sync your iPod with iTunes before you play anything through iTunes because the submission times will cause an error.

The dude's website doesn't seem to be working. No chance either of you have the .exe?

Thanks everyone. The jscrob2 file worked best for me. I couldn't get the other solution offered to work at all, actually.

nthdegx, I tried to e-mail you the file, but your address came back as undeliverable. E-mail me at mdbell79@gmail.com and I'll pass it along.

Thanks again!
