Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Transfer Music: Rhythmbox To IPod

Jan 8, 2010

I started having problems with my Rhythmbox a few weeks back. I cannot transfer my music to my iPod when I can before. I don't know what happened. It won't even pop an error message.

Did this problem ever occurred to anyone? I even installed gtkpod but it's the same, the songs cannot be transferred without an error message whatsoever.

iPod:
5th gen
30GB
Ubuntu 9.10

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Music From Rhythmbox Not Playing On IPod Touch

Oct 2, 2010

I recently found that I can sync my music to my iPod without iTunes/Windows. I tried using Rhythmbox and it seemed to work. That was, until I tried playing the album I added. It just skips through the album.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Transferring Music To IPod Touch 4.2.1 In Rhythmbox

Aug 3, 2011

A while ago, my iPod Touch was on the 3.1.3 firmware and when I would drag songs onto it from within Rhythmbox it worked perfectly. The filenames would be changed to follow Apple's weird naming conventions, and they would appear in the music library on my iPod. Then, I updated to 4.2.1 and I could no longer mount the iPod (this was a known issue, and someone made a fix, but I didn't bother with it) so I wasn't able to connect to it and transfer any more songs through Rhythmbox. Recently I noticed that I can now mount the iPod again and browse it in Rhythmbox (it must've been fixed in an update). However, I can't (successfully) transfer songs to it.

When I drag songs onto the iPod, Rhythmbox displays the "transferring __ songs" status, and they get added to the iPod's list of songs shown in Rhythmbox. However, they aren't visible in the iPod's actual music library. And when I reconnect the iPod to browse the music on my iPod in Rhythmbox, the newly transferred songs are no longer there. But the space left on my iPod has definitely decreased. So I went into my iPod's iTunes_Control/Music folder and noticed that all the songs I transferred are actually there in the F## folders, but they didn't get renamed to follow Apple's naming scheme (so instead of being named something like LNXQ.mp3 they just retain whatever the old filename was). So does anyone know what's going on? Rhythmbox definitely used to be able to transfer the songs in the "correct" way which ends with their filenames being changed and the songs being added to the iPod's music library. Why isn't this happening correctly anymore? Is there anything I can do to fix this?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Transfer Purchased Music From Ipod Touch

Jul 4, 2010

I'm running Lucid and so far I've been really pleased with how easy it is to access my ipod. My only problem is transferring music I purchased from the itunes store from my ipod touch to my ubuntu box. Neither Rhythmbox nor gtkpod shows that I have purchased music. If I browse through my ipod using Nautilus I can find my purchases but they have numbers for names and their metadata is in plist separate plist files.
The files aren't DRM'ed. If i hover my mouse over any of them in Nautilus, they play fine. Is there an easier way of transferring them than copying them and tagging each file individually?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Music Synced From Rhythmbox To IPod Touch Won't Start Playing?

Oct 16, 2010

When I sync my iPod touch 2G on 4.1 (same issue on 4.0), when I try to play the music on my iPod, it will just skip the song/not play it. I didn't have this issue on Ubuntu 10.04.

Ubuntu :: RhythmBox Sync - No Music On IPod

Aug 15, 2010

I'm new to ubuntu and I was a little concerned the jump over would be a little complicated. I was happy to see that almost everything on my external hd worked perfectly and rhythmbox plays all of the music files I have. I attempted to add music to my ipod (8gb iTouch specifically). It seemed that none of the music would come up on the iPod, even though rhythmbox showed that the files were on there. After a little time (and if I did something other than wait, I'm unaware) the files popped up on my iPod. Later in the week, I tried to add more music, with similar problems. I've removed and added the files several times and allowed the iPod to fully sync, but they still won't come up. I don't understand why it would work sometimes and not other times.

Ubuntu :: Every Time Sync With Either GTKpod Or Rhythmbox Ipod Music Is Acting Weird?

Oct 27, 2010

I've recently switched back to Ubuntu and I eventually had to sync my new ipod. I've been getting this problem where every time I sync with either GTKpod or Rhythmbox my ipod music is acting weird. It shows new music that I've added but when i choose to play it skips to the next track that then skips to the next track, and so forth. Its as if my ipod is filled with songs that don't even last 0.0 seconds! But the songs completely play in Rhythmbox, so I don't think its a problem with the files themselves.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Connect 2nd Gen Ipod To Xubuntu And Import Music Collection Onto The Ipod?

Aug 20, 2010

I am trying to connect my 2nd Gen Ipod to Xubuntu and import my music collection onto the Ipod. I am having real problems with this. Rhythm Box does not recognise the Ipod with the plug-in, I have tried Amarok, but each time I tried to open it, it just crashed, tried sending a bug report but that did not want to work. I have also tried Exaile with the Ipod plug-in but when you go to the device manager you can click on the Ipod but nothing happens. I have tried looking at the Exaile forums but this seems to be a problem for others as well. The Ipod mounts ok, now a bit stuck.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox Not Writing Playlist To IPod?

Feb 28, 2010

I love how Rhythmbox connects quickly and easily to my iPod, and how Rhythmbox does a pretty solid job of keeping track of changes to my library, though it is large. But I cannot seem to create playlists on the iPod through Rhythmbox. When I create them, I can see them in Rhythmbox, but when I unplug the iPod and try to play them, they don't show up. I plug the iPod back in, and Rhythmbox acts like they're there - I can even play the Playlist from the iPod in Rhythmbox.

Is there something I need to do to "write" the Playlist to the iPod from Rhythmbox? It is so irritating to have to create an "on the go" playlist on the iPod and then fire up Rhythmbox and rename it what i want it to be.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox Not Scrobbling IPod Properly?

May 16, 2010

I've just noticed (to my slight annoyance) that Rhythmbox's Last.fm plugin doesn't scrobble multiple plays of the same track from my iPod. If I listen to the same track several times before syncing my iPod on Rhythmbox, only one of the plays is actually scrobbled to Last.fm. Googling suggests I'm not the only person to encounter this.

I'm looking at how to report a bug for this, but in the meantime are there any other suggestions for more reliable scrobbling tools for Ubuntu? I fondly remember the days when Amarok 1.4 used to "just work" (with this and many other features), but Amarok 2 (my preferred music player) is still not doing this.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox Wont Show Ipod?

Sep 10, 2010

So my brother starts complaining to me about rhythmbox not showing his Ipod. Well I come home and he's right. I restarted rhythmbox and nothing. Disconnect and connect the ipod again, nothing. Works in Banshee, but I hate using banshee right now because it's extremely crowded.

So yeah, checked the plugins area, and it says Ipod support is checked.

I also use my creative zen with rhythmbox, and it seems to be working with that. Just the Ipod isn't working with it.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: IPod No Longer Recognized By RhythmBox

Jul 14, 2011

I've made some progress (at first, the ipod wasn't seen by the system at all). I've removed what appeared to be conflicting usb mounting packages and that has allowed the ipod to be recognized by the computer (i.e. the name of the ipod show up on the desktop with an ipod icon and i can manipulate files with nautilus. however, before i upgraded to lucid, rhythmbox would start automatically and I was able to manage the music through rhythmbox. now, since the upgrade, rhythmbox does not detect the presence of the ipod.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Get Songs From Rhythmbox To IPod - 10.10 Maverick Meercat / Fix It?

Oct 19, 2010

Having updated to 10.10 I am having a problem getting songs from Rhythmbox to my iPod.

When i plug in the iPod it mounts fine and opens in Rhythmbox. I then transfer the songs that i just pulled off amazon/ubuntu one onto the iPod by drag and drop. In Rhythmbox, the songs appear to be on the iPod and i can even play them off the ipod while it is mounted to Rhythmbox - i.e. when i am browsing the music selection on the ipod through rythmbox the songs will play, which makes me think they are on the ipod.

The problem is that when i try and play a song off the ipod, through speakers or headphones, then nothing plays. The song simply sits silent on the ipod. The track timer doesn't move and the tracks count up at around 4 second intervals.

This simple drag and drop approach worked in 10.04.

I see that there are some problems syncing ipods in 10.10. The most relevant appears to be a bug reported here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ox/+bug/654105

This bug however appears to be about taking songs off an ipod, not putting them on. That said i think the problem might be related (about copying appropriate extensions). The issue is that the ipod organises music in such a bizarre fashion that i can't find the songs to check the extension that has come off Rhytmbox. I don't want to duplicate the bug if its the same or related.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox / Amarok Not Recognizing IPod Touch 3g In Lucid

May 24, 2010

when I plug in my iPod touch 3g I do get an icon for it on the desktop.However, when I open Rhythmbox, or Amarok, or Banshee or anything else, there is no icon for the iPod touch.I have tried the 'scan removable media' within Rhythmbox and it asks me to initialize a new iPod. Initializing results in the iPod making an audible bleep as if it were charging but does not result in its icon appearing in Rhythmbox. Also, I have been able to upload snapshots from the iPod onto my computer but what I need is audio syncing with the iPod.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Managing Music In An Ipod?

Mar 23, 2011

I have two machines running ubuntu 10.10, one which acts as a media server to which i connect with the other (laptop) using ssh. All of the music is on the media server and I mount it with samba on the laptop.

I want to be able to manage music in my ipod (a very old one, probably G1 or G2) but I can't seem to make it work...

When I connect it to the laptop it looks ok, and the ipod is visible in Rhythmbox but I can't add music to the ipod, not sure why, maybe because all of my music is on the server and not local? If I try to sync the ipod and my library it says that there's not enough disk space since the library is far bigger than the capacity of my ipod.

When connected to the server, I mount the ipod but the Rhythmbox just don't display it. I checked in the plugins and the ipod support is enabled.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Changes To Music In Rhythmbox Reverted?

Jun 10, 2010

I am using Rhythmbox as my music player.It is a great little app. I've got over 4,000 songs. This can be a task to manage if something were to happen to the ID tags, etc. Also I've got some rogue songs with incorrect genres. When I RC the songs and change the Genre tags, they move tot he correct Genre. However seconds later they revert back to the previous Genre.

How can I get Rhythmbox to write the changes to the song's tag so I don't have to use another program to modify the tags? I know that Windows has this functionality... not to compare... but to would also be something like this available for Ubuntu. I did install the nautilus-script-audio-converter, however I didn't see a difference after installing this.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: IPod Nano 5G - Can't Recognize Any Music

Apr 6, 2010

I have an iPod nano 5th generation and can't get it to recognise any music I load from amarok or rhythmbox. I tried to install iTunes with wine but that didn't work and I have no access to a windows installation disk so I can run iTunes through virtual box. If anyone knows of any fix (even if it's temporary) that I can use to get music to play on my iPod, I have a 36 hour journey coming up and really want to be able to listen to some music to dull the boredom.
