Ipod Shuffle Problems

Hi I am a Newbie... so please be gentle...

I am using UBUNTU Edgy, and am determined to like it... but I am at the point where I am pretty frustrated. LINUX is not for everyone. But I am hanging in...

Okay... I have a few ipods. It took a couple of days to get my MINI working. But alas I can now delete and upload files to it using Rhythmbox...

My major problem is with an ipod Shuffle. I cannot delete files (they are still there unless I go to the folder and use Nautulus to delete them. And when I transfer .mp3 files they are in the Music folder but are unplayable.

If I reset the deice and use Windoze... everything works. What is wrong???

I used Amarok with my iPod Shuffle, worked great. I've written some instructions on how it can be made work, if you take some time to search among the threads. Rhytmbox or GTKpod or the other apps seem to work not-so-well compared to Amarok, so if you have a chance, at the time it may be easier for you to use Amarok. With Ubuntu's version of it it's pretty easy to auto-detect your iPod, save the settings of pre-connect and post-disconnect (to mount the device when Amarok connects to it, and umount the device when Amarok disconnects it - automatically) and just use the deviec(s). And as far as I've tried, Amarok tends to work more reliably than the other front-ends; though I'm pretty sure most of them use the same libraries (libgtkpod).
