I'm trying to use my iPod with Amarok. I've got it mounted, and Amarok finds it and the 'Media Devices' tab tells me that it has an "iPod at /dev/sda2 (mounted at /media/ipod)", but it doesn't find any folder structure on the iPod, as if it's pointed to the wrong place. I can browse the mount point successfully in Konqueror, and the point is chmodded to 755 and owned by my user. I was unable to change the permissions on the mount point.
When I try to copy files to the iPod, I get this:
Media Device: Copying file:///mp3/The Decemberists - 2006 - The Crane Wife/The Decemberists - The Crane Wife - 01 - The Crane Wife 3.mp3 to ??????/iPod_Control/Music/F34/kpod0636284.mp3 failed
The question marks are actually rendered as little boxes, indicating to me invalid ascii, which tells me that it's looking at the wrong path. The pattern isn't the same every time, it appears to change when I mount it. It also occasionally tells me that it was unable to create some directory (usually f00) when I connect my iPod.
gtkpod, despite being told that my iPod is in /media/ipod, thinks that '.' is my ipod directory, and can't find iTunesDB there (obviously), and will create iPod directory structure in ~ if I tell it to create it on the iPod. Any thoughts?
