    ipod mounting problems

    Hi,

    I'm having problems mounting my ipod on both my ubuntu and mythbuntu boxes.

    I've already some details here about mounting on mythbuntu.
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1679204

    On ubuntu I get the following from sudo fdisk -l:
    Code:
    Disk /dev/sdb: 159.8 GB, 159840301056 bytes
    26 heads, 50 sectors/track, 30018 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 1300 * 4096 = 5324800 bytes
    Sector size (logical/physical): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes
    I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes
    Disk identifier: 0x20202020
    
       Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
    /dev/sdb1               1       30019   156093788    b  W95 FAT32
    Partition 1 does not start on physical sector boundary.
    which looks fishy to me. I guess fdisk should be able to understand the partitions.

    When I run gtkpod. I get messages about:

    - checksum information does not match in iTunesDB
    - iPod database import failed. Illegal seek to offset 0 in one of the playlist files.

    Which also kind of worries me. Then gtkpod won't let me save the changes.

    I'm not sure where to go for help though. My last post here didn't get much response.

    This is the part of dmesg resulting from plugging the ipod in via usb

    Any help appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Re: ipod mounting problems

    Hi mate, I think your problem is probabley iPod related and therefore would recommend a complete reset of the ipod, this can be done in gtkpod [I think] or floola [google it] if you do not have access to Windows itunes prog.

    it may be work telling us what model of ipod you have mke, model, size etc
