Can't scrobble cuz on scrobbler is displayed "ITUNES NOT RUNNING" while Itunes exactly is running and ipod is synchronized. this question has been here already, but none of the solutions did not help the way .

Started having this same problem today after no problems a few days ago, it's really annoying. I can't for the life of me figure this Foobar stuff out so I'm basically just praying the original problem will get fixed.

I have the exact same problem since I updated my iTunes. When I want to scrobble tracks I've listened to on my iPod I get the message 'ITUNES NOT RUNNING'. I had the same problem about a year ago but then I managed to convert the iTunes update to a 32-bit version. When I try to do that now, iTunes doesn't work at all...... so I'm stuck with the 64-bit version. What can I do to scrobble tracks I've listened to with my iPod? Please help!

I found a way to scrobble songs played on my iPod: start iTunes on your desktop and play music. Then start the scrobbler. Connect your iPod to your desktop and just wait. After 5 to 10 minutes the scrobbler automaticly scrobbles the music I listened to on my iPod. Workes for me!

I haven't been able to scrobble my iPod ever since the site 'update'. I keep getting the "iTunes not running" error even though I have a current, perfect good version of iTunes as well as the current Scrobbler.
Can someone please fix this?? It used to work perfectly. Why change that?

Same issue here. I'm using Windows 7, and ever since I updated to the newer version of iTunes (64-bit, 12.4.something) last week, the Last.fm scrobbler stopped scrobbling my iPod. I tried reinstalling the scrobbler following tips on some thread on these forums, but that didn't solve the issue. I have since updated to the prompted newest version (64-bit, 12.4.1.6), but I haven't tried scrobbling my iPod yet in fear of it being as useless as before.

At least you've been able to scrobble tracks up until that point. I've not been able to scrobble from my iPod since the site was initially changed.

I worked around earlier scrobbling issues by installing the 2.1.33 version of the Last.fm scrobbler and scrobbling my iPod manually with it. Perhaps it's something worth trying again, as that version seems to be the latest problem free scrobbler... Not sure how it works with the newest version of iTunes, though.

Unexpected it starts to work by itself, without fixing and upfates, I connected my IPod, started ITunes and scrobbler and all of tracks are scrobbled  so I still dont know how it works

Unbelievable. Admittedly some of the comments were getting a bit out of hand but deleting all of them is just not cool at all.
