iPod not working right with Banshee 1.51

My iPod was working right at one point in time... haha

But I believe since upgrading to Ubuntu 9.10 (I think this is when it started) it has not been working correctly. I Plug in the iPod and it automatically opens Banshee like it used to and says it is charging and synced on the iPod itself, but no where within the Banshee music player is my iPod listed and I can't find where to access the iPods music library to add/remove songs/videos. It should be along the left window pane. I looked under plugins and I have the iPod support plugin enabled.

Anyone else?

I posted this on Ubuntu Forums and received this response that has worked for me so far:

This allowed Banshee to locate my iPod, but it couldn't eject afterwards. After I went to the icon on my desktop to eject it, it couldn't re-load it. A quick band-aid, but it's not a fix!

(I am a new user and can't post links, so you need a triple w in front of the rest of that link and a .html at the end)

Hmm yes the same thing happened to me when I did that. Hopefully an update comes up to fix it. Can anyone else confirm if their iPod is or is not working right with banshee? (I'm using a nano, not the newest one with video camera, but right before that)
