issues with iPod on SUSE 10.2
I received a new 30gb iPod Video recently. I went to sync it with Helix Banshee on 10.1, only to find out that Banshee doesn't recognize the ipod. So I installed a new Banshee, lost all ability to play MP3s, but it synced OK.
I installed 10.2, and I figured that the HelixBanshee not recognizing the iPod bug was fixed. It wasn't. I didn't feel like looseing the ability to play my MP3s, so I installed gtkpod. It synced my songs great.
But I wanted to put video on the thing, and I couldn't find a way to do that on Linux. So I went to another PC I have with WinXP and iTunes. And despite the fact I told it not to autoupdate and delete my songs, when I moved the video onto the iPod tab, it updated it, and deleted all music files off my iPod! So I hooked it back up to the SUSE machine, and used gtkpod to put my music on there. But then, I went to make sure everything on my iPod was OK, and it had the filenames of all my music, it would play, but no tags, no album art, no information. I went to check on my video, and in the Video area, it had all my music listed there too! My video wouldn't play either.
I love Linux and I like using my iPod, but I have never actually hated Linux as much as I do now! What's going on? Is there a program that will sync everything (Music, video, photos, podcasts), make playlists and do it right on Linux. Help please!
I've used Linux full time since 2003, and I have never been as frustrated with it as I am now!
