    Re: iPod mounting issue

    I figured it out! If anyone wants to know... if you're mounting an iPod touch 2g on Ubuntu 10.10 you have to type the command:
    sudo mkdir/ media/ ipod
    then go into your fstab by typing the command
    sudo gedit /etc/fstab
    then add
    /dev/sda1 /media/iPod vfat nosuid,noauto,nodev,rw,umask=077,gid=1000,uid=1000 ,user,defaults,noatime,iocharset=utf8 0 0
    to the bottom
    Then type in all these commands:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppamcenery/ppa
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgradeafterwards, reboot computer and it should work.
    you have to use GTKpod with the ipod touch though

    i don't think that's possible .. you r mounting your win partition in the ipod folder. if you open the /media/ipod what files do you see?

    Code:
    ls /media/ipod

    do you have gvfs-backends installed?

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gvfs-backends
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
    reboot and retry.

    Re: iPod mounting issue

    Sorry if this is a question that I missed the answer to above ... is your iPod formatted for Mac or Windows? Don't know if that'll help much but you said that it recognized it at one point and then it wouldn't let you access it ... I had that trouble and it wasn't until I formatted it in windoze that it worked ... it wasn't a touch though so it might be different ...
