Ausar, just wanted to check in and see if you had anything to add to the LA before I approve it, or if it is complete as is. Thanks.

Hey, I had the same error mesages. I solved the problem by using a new different directory each time I wanted to synchronize my ipod. I now dont get those error mesgs anymore.

In other words, make a new directory and put the new songs that you want to add to your ipod, into it. If you try to sync up new songs in a dir that you've previously synced - you get that error. Weird, but I've tried everything else, it's the only thing that works for me. My iPOd works perfectly now.

don't know if this helps at all, but gtkpod works like a dream for me, and my fstab entry is as follows:

/dev/sda2 /mnt/ipod vfat rw,user,umask=002,noauto 0 0

just a thought...

For some reason when I go into Mount Point -> Partitions it just keeps loading and loading and never finishes so I can't get it to work while the ipod is connected. I tried restarting several times and its always the same thing, it just keeps loading forever.

Works like a charm ^_^ Thank you, Domo Arrigato, Mucho Gracias, and so on and so forth.

Now... is there a way to get GTK (or Linux itself) to automatically mount the iPod when it's connected?

auto mounting

I did see a script somewhere (I know... not very helpful). Iuses Suse so I just right click on my desktop and it mounts/unmounts whatever drive I need to. You need to make sure that the iPOD is unmounted before you remove it, before disconnecting it or else you'll corrupt the filesystem. Automounting won't help you there. I'm happy with the right click deal.

Not the GTKPOD step. If somebody has gotten the gtkpod step working properly that would be awesome if they put that info in here so jeremy can add it to the LA.

But the first part works everytime for me.

gktpod also works with gnome 2.8 release

I've been messing around with Gnome 2.8. I just made a new icon to mount the ipod and eject it when I'm done - works perfectly. Although I think I liked the 2.6 where the mouse right click on the desktop gave you the option to mount/umount your filesystem.

Ok, so I have had the same problem of mounting my iPod and it working in konqueror and via a console.

yet in gtkpod, i get the same errors that auser recieved.

so i got to thinking, root can always do everything...so I logged in as root and sure enough, GTKPod worked like a charm!!!!

i got to thinking, just change the permissions of the ipod. nope, didn't work...they refuse to change.

so i got to thinking again, mount the ipod to my home directory, that should work, right? nope, still not working.

but i know now that it's simply a permissions issue. should i simply delete all the folders in my iPod and let gtkpod create them to erase all permissions issues?

thanks!

I was actually going to try the same thing (erase and let GTKpod create the folders) but I don't have Linux installed anymore (only for the time being. I am waiting to get a second hard drive to reinstall Linux.)


I know this thread is old, but has this solved the problem?
