My iPod (classic video 80 GB) mounts and is recognized automatically on up-to-date karmic. BUT when I try to sync, i.e. write to the iPod, an error says that the iPod cannot be opened for reading because it is read only. The iPod works fine with iTunes and hasn't been tampered with. I have not found any mention of this issue in the Rhythmbox or gtkpod tutorials. Any suggestions ?

Thanks

Hi,
Maybe better :p
If I connect my ipod nano 4G 8GB to Rhythmbox (v 0.12.5),
I do CAN write to it (erase songs, add songs...) but only, this corrupts each time the itunes database on the ipod needing it to be reinitialised thru itunes (and loosing all data on it)
greatings,
Steven
