    iPod Touch 8GB 3rd Gen not recognized in banshee or rhythmbox

    Hey guys, I just recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 through wubi in Windows 7. I would like to sync my ipod music and videos with banshee. When I plug my iPod touch in, the ipod charges, but banshee isn't recognizing a new device. I checked the plugins, and the iPod support is checked. Anyways, thanks and I hope you can help! This is my first thread

    Hi jhoek,

    It might be possible that this won't work since you're running Ubuntu inside Wubi. Could you try checking if your ipod shows up in the file manager, or in rhythmbox?

    Try Gtkpod.

    I installed gtkpod, and my iPod Touch won't show up in the iPod Manager. It doesn't need to be jailbroken, does it? I am hesitant to jailbreak it, because I have some purchased apps on it that I want to continue to use and update.

    I guess I don't really need to say that my iPod (Touch, 8 GB, Gen3) isn't showing up in Rhythmbox, either...

    Edit: Oh yeah, and my iPod shows up as a camera named "iPod" in the file manager (karmic netbook remix). What's up with that?

    Try upgrading to Lucid Lynx 10.04. It has full iPod Touch, iPhone support.

    I'm having ipod troubles too...
    In 10.04, when I connect my ipod touch (I think it's 2nd gen), although it appears on the desktop, and can be seen in rhythm box, AND I can transfer files, the music still doesn't appear on my ipod. Any suggestions?

    I have the same issue, 32Gb iPod, 2G, version 3.1.3. Computer recently upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04.

    Rhythmbox seems to transfer the mp3 files, but they can't be seen on the iPod.

    OK, I installed ifuse via synaptic, and now I can upload music to the iPod Touch, and can see and play said music on the iPod. Unfortunately about 25% of the album artwork is now associated with the wrong album!

    I have a 2nd gen ipod touch with 3.0 firmware and on 10.04, it syncs fine. Just look for them from your ipod be cause it updates the main music library . Also it may take some time for it to sync so be patient.
