Question My iPod Nano does not connect to Banshee automatically


I am running Fedora and have installed Banshee 0.12.1. I expected to be able to synchronize with my new iPod Nano but Banshee does not discover my iPod when I plug it into my USB.
Do I need some extra plug-ins or have I done something wrong or misunderstood something?

Raid Bug?

Hi,
I have a similar problem... it appears that I have the raid bug on my Nano... here is a link to the banshee site.

OK, - I ran the shell and got this (long)reply which ends with the "ugly message". I assume I have got the raid bug?
Or?? I looked into this bunch of messages and found this single message:
volume.fsusage = 'filesystem' (string)
Does that indicate that I do not have the bug?
So what do I do now in my Fedora Linux? Remember, - I am new to Linux( and Unix)!

I forgot to tell that my Linux actually mounts this Ipod-device but it starts the "Explorer" so I can see the files on the Ipod but my Banchee does not discover the Ipod device.

Hi Jens,
I have to admit that I never got banshee running on my system, debian etch with my nano. I started installing the patch, but since my HAL was a newer version (0.5.8.1-9 instead of 0.5.7.1) the patch was incorrect.

I have not spent much time working on it, but I did find that rhythmbox does a pretty good job of reading and writing from my nano...(no patch required!) I have been using it for several weeks.

Hi Karl

Could you please send a link to that "rhythmbox" that you are using?

Regards Jens

Alternatives to Banshee

Hi Jens,
I am running Rhythmbox ... more information can be found at:

http://www.rhythmbox.org/

It allows me to add and remove songs from my Nano... not as fancy as banshee, but it works. This is the standard music player that comes in the gnome desktop. There should be some RPMs for Fedora around.

If you are using KDE for your desktop, people report good success with Amarok

http://amarok.kde.org/

I have no experience with Amarok, but it does not appear to suffer from the raid bug.

Good Luck!

Karl
