Exclamation Exaile iPod mount point

Where does Exaile want me to mount my iPod? Right now its /media/iPod.
The error message i get is:
Error connecting to iPod. Make sure you specify the right mount point in the plugin configuration.
I'm on Ubuntu hardy heron 8.04.

Exaile doesn't really care but you have to tell it where the IPod is mounted... so look at the prefeences for the IPod Plugin and ther you will find an entry mount point ... there you set it to /media/IPod. Sorry to not being able to guide you closer but don't have Exaile installed right now ... its my work machine

When you choose the mount point for the iPod in the GUI file chooser, make sure that you double-click 'IPOD' - else the mount point might end up as '/media'.

AFTER YOU CLOSE Exaile, check this by looking at ~/.exaile/settings.ini - make sure you have a line like -

ipod_mount = /media/IPOD

(if you get it wrong, it might say 'ipod_mount = /media')


exaile, ipod, mount, point
