    I wonder if apple's hash has anything to do with their patent

    Gtkpod's website still reports no 6G support as of today. Does anyone know *when* support might be coming out?

    Using iTumes in Virtualbox/Xp-Pro. It's the only thnig that worked or me with 6th gen Nano.

    FYI - Apple just replaced my 1st gen Nano with the latest model because of a bunch of bad batteries used in the original manufacture. Check Apple's website for details.

    FedEx just handed me a Gen 6 Nano as replacement for my Gen 1 that got recalled. So I am also desperate for Linux support. Will try Itunes with Wine but I don't have much confidence in that solution.

    I am in this exact same situation. Apple replaced my 1st gen nano with a 6th gen. Nice that I now have double the space, but really, really crappy that I can't transfer over any songs from my media drive that is on my ubuntu machine.

    I found this thread through another message (link) on the same issue: no successful way to transfer mp3s to an iPod Nano 6th gen in native Linux apps (banshee, rhythmbox and the likes). I am still using Ubuntu 10.10, so things may look brighter on more recent releases.

    That said, I can report the workarounds that did work for me:
    1. Virtualbox with a Windows Virtual Machine and iTunes
    2. Spotify for Linux


    Notes on Virtualbox: I did have to copy the mp3s to the Windows VM, because analysis of my library in iTunes took indefinite amounts of time when using a virtual share to my music library in Ubuntu (~/Music/).

    Notes on Spotify: I have a free account and the Linux client. I added the local files to the library and created a second playlist (called iPod) which I selected to sink to the iPod. Found this to be the only way to select the mp3s that end up on the iPod. Warning: Spotify erased my iPod before syncing.

    Either way works, but I'd still prefer to see a fix for libgpod/gtkpod.

    I'm not sure this will ever be possible I'm afraid. Apple have closed everything down by encrypting some hashes...

    I just managed to synchronize my Ipod nano 6g with Spotify for Linux!
    I confirm that banshee mounts the ipod and writes the files but the music does not appear

    Spotify is unfortunately not a solution for most European users.

    Instead I recently found this java software, on the FAQ it's written it's possible to sync 6th gen ipod nano on linux, but I had no chance to test it since my replaced ipod is still on shipment.

    http://www.jakpod.de/en/frequentlyas...upported_iPods

    "Attention! JakPod does work with iPhones, iPod touchs and Nanos 6. Gen since version 2.0 but only on LINUX machines!"

    I hope this can be useful. I will test it as soon as I can.

    UPDATE => no luck syncing the device with jakpod
