iPod doesn't like to mount, and the gtkpod freezes...
I have a new viPod and I am running Mepis 3.3.1 (linux kernel 2.6.10) and gtkpod 0.99.?
When I plug in my iPod I can see it appear and disappear three times in my Devices folder in Konqueror, and then its gone. So i unplug and replug, and go through it all again. If I plug it in and try to mount it (with mouse click) during one of those brief moments of appearance, it *usually* gives me "/dev/sda2 no such device" or something.
OCCASIONALLY I can get it to mount with this click method (using gtkpod to mount it doesn't want to work, since its never "there" when gtkpod tries to do the mounting). When that's working, I can open gtkpod and transfer songs, but soon after I get a "input/output error" and then its frozen and I have to start again.
Any ideas? Should I update my kernel? Are my USB ports bad (all four of them?)
