Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Sync 2nd Gen IPod Nano?

Apr 28, 2011

My 2nd Gen iPod Nano isn't syncing with Rhythmbox, Banshee, or any other music program. My computer will see the iPod and mount it fine, but only as a Read-Only drive (so I can't drag files onto it). In Banshee, for example, it will see the drive, but none of the sync options work, and I can't drag music files from the library onto the iPod.and if anyone knows anything, that'd be great. Also, if you need more info, let me know. Trying to move everything into Linux and this is really the last thing I want to work to make the move final.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Ipod Nano 3g With Banshee?

Feb 21, 2010

after upgrading to Ubuntu 9.10 banshee does not see my Ipod anymore, which is a nano video 3g one. Rhythmbox works though, gtkpod not. I thought I had to install libgpod-dev and libgpod2, but the second library is not available anymore in synaptic. I have installed libgpod4, libgpod-common, -dev.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: IPod Nano 3G Unsynchable In 10.04

May 4, 2010

My iPod Nano 3G, which used to work perfectly in 9.10, doesn't seem to work in 10.04. It's detected by Ubuntu and Rhythmbox, but Rhythmbox can't see what's on it and you can't synch to it. Banshee doesn't even detect it at all. I thought iPod compatibility had been improved for this release, not gotten worse? Anyway, what can I do to troubleshoot and hopefully fix the problem?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Syncing An IPod Nano With Banshee?

Jan 19, 2010

I am trying to get working properly with Ubuntu. Currently I am trying to get it to work with Banshee.Originally, my girlfriend connected it to iTunes running under Windows, and configured it and loaded music, photos and podcasts onto it. Unfortunately for her, the Windows machine had a hardware failure, and there is no other PC running real Windows for her to use. I have some Windows Virtual Machines on my Ubuntu server, but there are known problems passing through the iPod USB connection to a KVM Virtual Machine.

I tried iTunes under Wine (using the PlayOnLinux software to install and configure), but that also doesn't work (also apparently a known problem).So I am left with getting the iPod working with real native Ubuntu software. I tried Rhythmbox, but that doesn't seem to support writing to an iPod. Then I tried Banshee, which claims to be able to do it all.Banshee can connect to the iPod, and I can load music and videos onto the iPod, but:Banshee cannot see any of the music already on the iPod (loaded with ITunes),The iPod cannot see any of the files (music or video, nor any new Playlists) loaded by Banshee. The files are there (I can see them by browsing the iPod device with Nautilus), and they are certainly taking up storage space, but they do not show up when using the iPod directly.It is as if there are 2 iPods: the real iPod, and a virtual iPod accessed by Banshee.

I am running Banshee 1.6 Beta 3 (1.5.2), on Jaunty (9.04).When I first connected the iPod to Banshee it told me that, because the device had been used with a new version of iTunes, the media catalogue would have to be rebuilt, to which I agreed. I am starting to suspect that there are now 2 media catalogues on the iPod, one being used by Banshee, and the other by the iPod iteslf.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Videos With No Audio On Ipod Nano?

Mar 26, 2010

I used this code ffmpeg -i video.flv -r 12.5 -s 320x240 -vcodec mpeg -ar 22050 -ab 128k -acodec ac3 out.mp4 for converting a flv to mp4. The output is all right, but in the ipod nano 3g 4GB it has no sound. What's wrong? Maybe I put the wrong -acodec ac3 options?

-acodec libfaac
-acodec aac
gives me
Unknown encoder 'libfaac'

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Ipod Nano 2g Fails To Mount In XUbuntu 9.10

Jan 24, 2010

My 4 GB 2nd generation Ipod nano will not mount to my Compaq Presario 2105US running Xubuntu 9.10. I get a message that says, "Failed to mount Ipod" with a description that says, "mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so ."

I even went back to my XP to restore the ipod to factory settings essentially formating it, to see if that would help, but I get the same result.

Is there something that I may have overlooked?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sync OGG Files With Ipod?

So, how can i get my music into my ipod without having two separate libraries (that would take too much space in my HDD)?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.04 Does Not Sync IPod Touch?

Oct 9, 2010

I just got a 4th generation iPod Touch today. I plug it in to my laptop (Ubuntu 10.04), it recognizes it as a photo storage but it will not recognize it in Rhythmbox or Banshee. Therefore I cannot get any files on to it. Although when I plug it in and open Rhythmbox it makes a little noise.

I have tried installing libimobiledevice, ifuse and tried with gtkpod (basically I've read a lot of stuff about getting it to work) all to no avail. I also plugged it into Windows Vista to get it started as well as transferred a song from iTunes 10 to it, and it still doesn't do much when on my laptop.

It seems to not be mounted in the proper place for gtkpod and no fixes seemed to work. For using ifuse it does not seem to recognize that it is plugged in. I have updated all the libimobiledevice packages and still nothing.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Banshee Recognizes IPod But Disconnected On Sync

Sep 6, 2010

I've been using banshee for a couple weeks. And it's worked great up until now. This happened one other time, and I reinstalled ubuntu, and it worked fine. Now it's not working again. What's happening is, I plug my ipod in, and banshee recognizes it. But when I try to put music onto it, it says it's syncing, and then I disconnect, and the music isn't on there. I updated podsleuth, but that didn't seem to help.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: IPod Touch Doesn't Sync With Rythmbox

Jan 5, 2011

(using 10.10) and I just can't get my iPod Touch to sync with my Rythmbox.

When I plug my iPod into the USB port, a message is prompted, which tells me it detected a digital music device and asks me to select a program to access it. Then I select "Rythmbox" and Rythmbox opens.

My iPod's name shows on the left bar, but when I select it, no songs appear, and also I can't drag songs from my library to my iPod.

I aready tried Banshee and Amrok and it didn't work on those either.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Banshee Not Capable To Sync Artwork Correctly To IPod?

Feb 16, 2010

I've started using Banshee to sync my ipod lately. There are a few issues with it that I can bear - having to killall natutilus every time I reconnect my ipod being one. But I'm getting a bit peeved with Banshee being apparently incapable of syncing my album artwork correctly. It downloads the correct artwork perfectly within banshee, but at the minute about half the albums on my ipod have REM Monster cover art beside them. Is there any way I can force Banshee to reset the artwork?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Change Some Settings In Order To Get The Ipod To Sync W Banshee?

Nov 13, 2010

I really, really like Banshee and I really, really don't want to use gtkpod or rythmbox

Overview:I have a 5th gen video ipod which I'm trying to load onto my banshee.I was able to do this in the past, but since the upgrade to 10.04 (WHICH IS AWESOME!!) I've been S.O.L. Previously, I had to change some settings in order to get the ipod to sync w banshee, and I'm wondering if that's why I'm blocking it's native ability to sync. I'm trying to remember what changes I've made,but it's been awhile...

Breakdown: - in order to mount the iPod, I have to go to Places>Ipod and select it from the list

- I then open banshee, and the ipod is recognized in my menu

- when I go to load it, it says "loading ipod", which goes indefinitely and never ends...

- in addition, it does not recognize any music/video is on my ipod - only 11.9gb of "other"

...and that's it. I would love to load my new music

Ubuntu :: Ipod Nano 3rd Gen Restore Help

Dec 18, 2010

I'm trying to restore my ipod nano 3rd gen. Banshee, rhythmbox, and gtkpod do not work properly so I've resorted to using virtualbox and windows xp with itunes.My problem is I can only mount the ipod in virtualbox once per boot. If i have to unplug it i have to completely restart my computer to get the ipod to be mounted again. oddly, this is only a problem after I launch virtualbox. I can unplug and plug in my ipod as many times as i want in ubuntu and it'll mount every time. However, as soon as I launch virtualbox I get one chance in windows vm and then its gone. even if I close virtualbox I can't get ubuntu to see my ipod.

Hardware :: IPod Nano 5th Generation - Gtkpod / Libgpod

Jan 16, 2011

I've been trying to get an iPod nano 5th generation working with slackware-current, with no luck. Currently, I have upgraded to gtkpod 1.0.0 and libgpod 0.8.0. I've run iPod-read-sysinfo-extended successfully, which wrote the SysInfoExtended file in /<ipod_root>/iPod_Control/Device.

After those steps, gtkpod would copy the mp3's to the device, but would fail writing the database. So, I generated the HashInfo file from the firewire guid using the tool at [URL]. After that, gtkpod finishes writing the database to the device, and shows all the music which is present, but after ejecting the iPod, no music shows up.

I am not sure what is happening here. My ipod nano worked perfectly with the computer I am using with Windows XP, Ubuntu 9.04, Xubuntu 9.04, and gNewSense 2.3.

I wanted to use Xubuntu 9.10, but my ipod does not work with it. The other choice is gnewSense, but I am not sure if I want to be limited by their ultra-strict free software policy. I posted a TON of information on the Ubuntu forums about this:
