Can't sync to IPOD nano with GTKPOD 0.99.4

I have an IPOD nano which I have used successfully with Windows XP. What I want to do is to use it with Suse Linux 10.0. So I installed a copy of GTKPOD version 0.99.4 and connected my IPOD. The IPOD icon came up and when I hit the READ button it read in the data and gave a convincing display of the contents of the IPOD. However GTKPOD complained
"iTunesDB '/media/ipod/Pod_Control/iTunes/ItunesDB' does not match checksum in extended information file '/media/ipod/iPod_Control/iTunes/iTunesDB.ext'
gtkpod will try to match the information using MD5 checksums this may take along time. /media/iPod/iPod_Control/Artwork/ArtworkDB is too big to be a buffer file"

The file list looked OK and there was 1.22 GB free on the IPOD.

I then switched to a the local playlist and READ a file which worked OK.

I then hit SYNC to write the new file to the IPOD and GTKPOD just hangs.

I suspect that I need to sort out the first error before I can make progress on the second. This is my first post and my knowledge of the Linux file system is limited but I did use the Nautilus file manager to look at the directories on the IPOD and I could see the files fine.

What do I check next ? I had a look at earlier postings but they seemed to be about SYNC problems without any read issue.
