Hi, I have old second gen i think, 2 GB Nano. It has a duel boot with rockbox and all is well until last night I was loading some podcasts on my iPod with Banshee and when I booted into apples stupid interface because my bluetooth headphones will not work with rockbox so I went to my podcasts like usual but none were there also all my songs are gone! I went to Banshee and seen if they have been deleted but they were there and could be played also can be seen in any explorer window, lastly can be played into rockbox with my crappy doller store headphones and can work. Can anyone help me with my problem I will format the thing if I have to but I will have to find a windows/Mac computer to use iTunes to format. Please help!!!!
gtkpod seems to be a lot more reliable than Rhythmbox for loading tracks onto older iPods. the 1st and 2nd gen Nanos occasionally mess up and don't load some tracks right - sometimes all of them - so the pod can't play 'em even though they're physically loaded onto its memory. i think it's a pod problem rather than a Linux one.
