iPod Touch 2G does not work on Linux Mint 10


I have currently installed Linux Mint 10 Gnome 32-bit edition and I have a iPod Touch 2nd gen with 32GB.
I was able to see the music(mp3 files) in my iPod touch in linux mint 8 and 9. But currently I have the following issues:
  1. When I connect my iPod Touch with the system I got two popup asking me
    • "You have just inserted digital audio player. Choose what applications to launch"
    • "You have just inserted a medium with digital photos. Choose what applications to launch"

    I know that these are popups are normal. I currently do not have any photos or videos in my iPod Touch(will try to add them in the future) so I used Rhythmbox to open the music present in my iPod touch. I'm able to find my iPod under "Devices" in Rhythmbox. But when I click it, Rhythmbox shows that there are no music present in my iPod Touch by showing "0 artist" and "0 Albums". However I know for sure that there are definitely songs in my iPod since I'm able to browse and play songs directly from my iPod. Is there any way to resolve this? I have also tried opening it in banshee but with the same result.

  2. I tried to drag and drop songs present in my library of rhythmbox to my iPod and this does not do any thing. Previously in LM 8 or 9, when I do drag and drop I will be able to see my new songs in my iPod.

Can some one out there help me resolve these issues?

Do you have the latest libimobiledevice versions?
Have you tried with Banshee or Amarok to sync your iPod?

Yes libimobiledevice is installed.
As I have mentioned earlier I have tried it with banshee but still I'm not able to sync it. I have not tried Amarok.
