Hi there

I've been following a thread here;
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1267180&page=15

I have had no luck getting gtkpod ipod manager to play work with the ipod;

* I have patched the newest gtkpod and libpod source with okiura's patch (into the src directories) (see earlier thread (page # 5)).
* I have generated a hashfile specific to the ipod player and put that into the 'Device' directory on the ipod.

But now whenever I open gtkpod ipod manager and try to drag song files onto the device I get an error message;

"Transfer of "SONG.mp3" Failed, error opening '/media/MATTYCOZE's/iPod_Control/Music/F07/libgpod700985.mp3 for writing (permission denied)."

I get the same error messages for any file format I try (including .m4a) etc...
