    Re: HOWTO : ipod touch 3G sync over USB without jailbraking

    musicman10489, I had the same issue as you. I was just testing this method out and synced 1 or 2 songs with Ubuntu (while leaving a lot of other music on the phone that had been previously synced via iTunes in Windows). The songs that I synced via Ubuntu could play fine but all of the other music would only play about 5 seconds before skipping to the next song. The conclusion that I've reached is that all of your music should be synced with iTunes OR Ubuntu/Rhythmbox (but not a mixture of the two). For example, I removed all of the music from my phone and then re-synced my entire music collection using Ubuntu and now everything works fine. It seems that the phone was not happy when I tried to sync only a few songs with Ubuntu while leaving other songs on the device from iTunes. If all of your music is synced using the Ubuntu/Rhythmbox method, I think this issue goes away.

    Yeah I noticed that also! When I went back and re-added albums using Rhythmbox they stopped skipping. Thank you though for addressing that issue. I also noticed that if the songs in an album are listed by title or anything other than track number when you transfer them, that's the way they show up on the itouch.
    Thank you again for replying!

    Re: HOWTO : ipod touch 3G sync over USB without jailbraking

    What am I supposed to do here?

    $ ipod-read-sysinfo-extended
    (mountpoint here is /mnt/ipod/)
    I do
    $ lsusb -v | grep -i iSerial
    iSerial 3 3d8a3c0eff99c98fd48a9d27157cf2689ca3aca2
    iSerial 3 058F0O1111B1
    iSerial 1 0000:00:02.1
    iSerial 0
    iSerial 1 0000:00:02.0
    And then
    ipod-read-sysinfo-extended 3d8a3c0eff99c98fd48a9d27157cf2689ca3aca2 /media/ipod/
    and get:
    Couldn't read xml sysinfo from 3d8a3c0eff99c98fd48a9d27157cf2689ca3aca2

    Re: HOWTO : ipod touch 3G sync over USB without jailbraking

    Hi, I have a different problem

    Rhythmbox is detecting my iPod Touch, I can play music off it and I can add songs. But my iPod's music player isn't detecting any of the music. I check my space quotas before and after, and the space gets used up, I just can't play the songs from my iPod

    Re: HOWTO : ipod touch 3G sync over USB without jailbraking

    Hi.

    First of all, Great Work! Since I now only use my iPod Touch (First generation and firmware 3.0, 32GB, jailbroken) as a remote for my MPD server (through MPoD), this would expand it's use a lot.

    However I'm running into problems at one point.

    When connecting the iPod to make the ifuse commands the iPod seems to mount by itself nicely, but I have no write access to the /mnt/ipod/.. directory. I'm not sure I'm supposed to have that, but anyway it seems that the ipod-read-sysinfo-extended needs to be able to write a file. I have tried to change the owner of the /mnt/ipod/ directory. In Nautilus this gives me the option to create things, but I get the folloing error: Error creating directory: Operation not permitted. Same if I use a root Nautilus.

    I added myself and root to the fuse users and I changes the owner of the /mnt/ipod with: chown username:fuse /mnt/ipod/ as suggested by patrickcage.

    Anyone got an idea?

    This may sound like (and indeed may be) a stupid question, but have you switched off your iPod and turned it on again.
    I ask this because mine only mounted (as Apple intended) as a Digital Camera until I turned it off and on, then it mounted as both a camera, and again (as I intended) an iPod.

    Re: HOWTO : ipod touch 3G sync over USB without jailbraking

    I'm trying to follow the instructions above with a brand new 3G touch. When I try and mount the device (the touch is connected via USB), I get "No device found, is it connected?"

    When I plug the USB in, I do get the pop-up window recognizing that I had plugged it in (but saying it's a medium containing digital photos)
