I'm currently trying to find a way to use my Ipod classic with Ubuntu..I'm using Ubuntu 12.04. I've tried using Rhythmbox Music Player, Banshee and Gtkpod Ipod Manager (all latest versions I think) to sync my ipod. All appear to sync successfully, with the music library appearing when you click on the device in each of the programs (Banshee appeared to duplicate every song, which Gtkpod then removed), but the music library never shows up on the Ipod. I've also tried using Wine (1.4) and several versions of Itunes, but all either failed to detect the device or kept freezing. I know there's a lot about this on the internet but as there doesn't seem to be any clear solution and most of the posts I found were from 2010, I thought I'd ask if anyone has any advice as I'm at a bit of a loose end..
