Question 4g 20gb IPOD / gtkpod / usb 2.0 problems


Hi!

A few days ago i bought one 20gb ipod and since then i'm stuck trying to set it up on my linux box. The ipod is formatted in windows and works fine there, and when connected to my ubuntu hoary with a usb 2.0 port (i'm using a brand new conceptronics pci usb 2.0 card c480i1) it's automonted in /media/IPOD

The problem is i can't sync the ipod with gtkpod. I've set the mount point in the program to /media/IPOD and the id3 charset to ISO-8859-1 (the id3 tags of my mp3s are encoded in that charset)

These are the errors i get:

- dmesg returns this when trying to sync the ipod with gtkpod:

.................................................
FAT: Filesystem panic (dev sda2)
fat_get_cluster: invalid cluster chain (i_pos 0)
FAT: Filesystem panic (dev sda2)
fat_get_cluster: invalid cluster chain (i_pos 0)
SCSI error : <0 0 0 0> return code = 0x70000
end_request: I/O error, dev sda, sector 156509
FAT: Directory bread(block 76184) failed
FAT: Filesystem panic (dev sda2)
fat_get_cluster: invalid cluster chain (i_pos 0)
.................................................


- gtkpod returns this:

.................................................
Could not open file "/media/IPOD/iPod_Control/Music/f19/gtkpod00057.mp3" for writing.
Could not open file "/media/IPOD/iPod_Control/Music/f00/gtkpod00058.mp3" for writing.
Could not open file "/media/IPOD/iPod_Control/Music/f01/gtkpod00059.mp3" for writing.
...
.................................................


I don't know if it could be a charset issue (the iocharset is set to utf8 ), after automonting the ipod, my /etc/mtab look like this:

.................................................
/dev/hdb1 / ext3 rw,errors=remount-ro 0 0
proc /proc proc rw 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs rw 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts rw,gid=5,mode=620 0 0
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs rw 0 0
/dev/hdd5 /media/circulodos ext3 rw 0 0
/dev /.dev unknown rw,bind 0 0
none /dev tmpfs rw,size=5M,mode=0755 0 0
usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs rw 0 0
none /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc binfmt_misc rw 0 0
/dev/sda2 /media/IPOD vfat rw,nosuid,nodev,quiet,uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=077, iocharset=utf8 0 0
.................................................

The usb 2.0 card seems to work correctly, an "lspci |grep USB" returns this (i've one usb 1.1 controller in the mainboard and the new usb 2.0 pci card):

.................................................
0000:00:07.2 USB Controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82xxxxx UHCI USB 1.1 Controller (rev 1a)
0000:00:07.3 USB Controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82xxxxx UHCI USB 1.1 Controller (rev 1a)
0000:00:0b.0 USB Controller: ALi Corporation USB 1.1 Controller (rev 03)
0000:00:0b.1 USB Controller: ALi Corporation USB 1.1 Controller (rev 03)
0000:00:0b.2 USB Controller: ALi Corporation USB 1.1 Controller (rev 03)
0000:00:0b.3 USB Controller: ALi Corporation USB 2.0 Controller (rev 01)
.................................................

Thanks a lot and sorry for my poor english!
