Since we both run ubuntu, we've run into some problems; we can't get any music on the iPhone. I've installed ifuse and can browse the contents but i cannot transfer any music in a way that the iPhone frecognizes it and is able to play it. I've seen a couple of comprehensive (very long) guides to sync iphone wireless w ubuntu, however im only interested in connecting the iPhone with usb and copy music to it is there any quick/easy way to do this? (Rhytmbox is compatible w iphone it seems, it recognizes it as an iPod but cant sync)
I have a rather strange problem and it surfaced just recently. Most likely it has something to do with switching from Ubuntu 10.04 to Ubuntu 10.10.
When I upload music to my iPhone 3gs with iOS 3.1.3 (7E1 it shows in iTunes, however the phone skips over the music. This does not happen to songs I uploaded via rhythmbox two weeks ago.
For a test purposes I deleted the old songs from the iPhone and tried to put them on again. Now I cannot listen to them as well. At least I know it has nothing to do with the used mp3 coding.
I even can use the iPhone as a harddrive for that music and play music from their through rhythmbox.
The song list shows the right sizes on the iPhone.
It is save to say that the data is transfered and the music database is updated. So there must be a strange error in detecting the length of the songs which would point to a problem in updating the iPhone database. However, I cannot be sure, because the phone is not reporting any errors.
Take a look at this blog I found while searching for methods to sync your music with Ubuntu Natively!!!! AND it works! Take a look at the screenshot attached. STOKED. Below is a link with instructions: [URL]
This is not directly for me since I don't have an iPhone. it opens automatically with DigiKam he said and that's the only available option in the device manager. All he can do is download photos from the phone. He is running openSuse 11.2 with KDE 4.4.2.
I'm using Rhythmbox on Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid). I've got the N900 connected via USB in Mass Storage mode. Initially, it failed to detect the N900 as a media player, but I've added a .is_audio_player file to the root, with a single entry of audio_folders=.sounds/That's now finding the existing music on the N900. However, I can't transfer any music into the N900 - it's just doing nothing when I drag files over. (I'm trying to copy .mp3 and .wma over). If I copy the music using the File Manager on the desktop, it appears in the N900 Media Player and plays fine.
So it seems like it's a problem with the way Rhythmbox is seeing the N900.The audio format description string for the N900 is extensive, and it looks like Rhythmbox can't parse it properly.How do I correct the audio formats supplied by the N900 / in udev so that Rhythmbox reads them correctly, removing the need to have an output_formats line in the .is_audio_player file.What do I need to do to get Rhythmbox to just copy .wma and .mp3 files directly to the N900?
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?
OK I have a problem, well I think it's just ubuntu because this has done this in 9.04 and 10.04 and still in 10.10. When I go to drag and drop the music files from iPhone to my music folder, the files transfer, but they don't transfer with the name of the song. They get transferred with a name of 4 digits like this "BVFG.MP3" (example).
I am not going to go through all 1,200 of my songs and rename them one by one that's ridiculous.
Here's a screen shot. That is actually More by Usher, but it doesn't say Usher obviously.
Iphone 4.2.6 and ubuntu. I have upgraded to natty and have Banshee running and am able to mount my iphone and see my files etc in a file browser. I can even see my music on the iphone inside Banshee. It lets me copy music from my machine to the iphone but never shows up on the ipod on the iphone. I can browse the folders and find the music but its saved as libgpodxxxxx.mp3. The xs are numbers. They are all in folders on the iphone called itunes_controlmusicfxx where x again are numbers. They play fine from the iphone if you highlight them in the file manager or in banshee.
I have found simple ways to transfer my downloaded music from Windows (file uploading and then downloading, the non-technical easy way), but iTunes doesn't really allow you to download your music - from what I know (non-technical person here).
I have wubi because this is a family computer, and my sister's a gamer (once I convince them to use this, I will find a way to make those games to work here). I also will start buying music from Amazon soon so it'll work here.
How do I first of all download the bought music from iTunes?
Well I recently tried syncing music to my iPod touch with rhythmbox and it keeps telling me the following: There is not enough space on the device to transfer the selected music, playlists.This is not true as I only have 3.2GB of music and 5.7GB space remaining on the ipod as shown below:Can anybody explain what is going on and why it wont let me sync ipod?
I want to connect a laptop running ubuntu 10.04 to a laptop running windows 7 via direct connection in order to transfer files like music, documents, pictures, etc. I have an ethernet cable that I thought I would need in order to do it. Is that even possible?? If so, how would I go about doing that?
Now, I have tried to share the files wirelessly but for some reason when I pick up the workgroup on the ubuntu laptop and enter the password in order to connect to the windows laptop it says my password is wrong, when I know for a fact that it is not. I know I can transfer files with a flash drive and what not but I want to try to get this working.
I've had an awkward problem lately: every music player I use wants to instead of play music from my USB external hard drive, stream music from it. I have no idea why it suddenly started doing that. It may have been an accidental key-combo I pressed, thinking I had another window targeted and didn't bother pressing it again for my Totem music player. So I closed out of Totem in hopes that Rythmbox would work like totem used to. Well, it doesn't. It wants to stream music now.The problem with the streaming music is trivial, but here it is: I have a playlist with a little over 300 songs. I have Totem set to shuffle and repeat my music. Streaming music with it makes it just stop randomly after a few songs, and when I try to pause music and play it later it takes a good 30 seconds before it kicks back in at the beginning of the song.Like I always ask because I don't know enough to give back to the community yet, can anyone help me? Thanks.
