    [ubuntu] Re: Ultamatix

    I generally would advise against installing Ultimatix. This also used to be the forum policy, but I'm not sure if it's since changed.

    What do you want to install it for?

    [ubuntu] Re: iPod to Computer Transfer with Rythymbox

    Rhythmbox won't do that.

    A command from the terminal is easiest, or just drag and drop.

    [ubuntu] Re: Automatically force mount?

    Solve what? I'm not sure what the problem is.

    In this case, where you have a USB drive that has been incorrectly unmounted that you want to force mount, you can force mount it as a one-off.

    No, that's not the point. Reading or writing to a drive with corrupt data can corrupt more data, or cause other problems.

    [ubuntu] Re: Automatically force mount?

    I don't really understand, not being a windows user, but I think windows leaves the drive 'locked' as it were, as though it were still in use.

    Its NTFS, yeah?

    [ubuntu] Re: Automatically force mount?
