View Full Version : [ubuntu] Rhythmbox and iPod shuffle woes

September 24th, 2011, 01:03 PM
Hi all,

I recently received a 4th-gen Shuffle as a gift. What can I say, the gifter didn't know me very well.

Nonetheless, I'd like to see if I can get it working with Ubuntu.

I've seen on these forums that some have managed to get the shuffle to work with Rhythmbox.

I told Rhythmbox to initialize the iPod. Then I tried syncing the iPod within Rhythmbox as well as copying the files from a regular Ubuntu folder display to the iPod in Rhythmbox.

No matter what I do, I get the "Read-only file system" message. If I look at the iPod's contents in Rhythmbox I see a bunch of WAV files.

What steps should I take?
