Default Playing music thru the PC / Mac

Is it possible to play music that is on the S9 thru a computer (PC or Mac)?

I know there was a thread on here earlier about how to operate the S9 while connected to a PC (and have it charging), but can the music on the S9 come thru the computer?

I know iPlod's can, some of my work colleagues have their iPlop's plugged into the Mac and can play the music thru iTunes.

The main reason why I ask is I would love to be able to scrobble to my last.fm account while I'm at work. If I have to use stupid iTurds to do so, so be it.

If your in MSC mode and have playlists referencing the files on the S9, it will work in any app of your choosing.

When in MSC mode, it is just an external drive. You use it anyway you like. individual tracks or whatever way you want. I sometimes use them as oversized usb drives to shuttle large cad files around.

It's just a normal (MSC) USB drive. You see it in Windows Explorer like all your other hard discs, DVD drives, etc. Just select your files/folders and play them in your audio player of choice. There's no silly restrictions like with an MTP player.

that's cool; I didn't know you could do that. I thought you would have to copy the songs onto the computer to listen. So all you have to do is plug the S9 into the PC, and plug headphones into the PC and it plays off the S9? Very cool
