    Sync program for non-Ipod mp3 player crowd

    I tried GPodder and it doesn't seem what I need. I'm looking for a sync program for non-Ipod generic mp3 USB players. One that will have library, playlist and show the USB device. I'm using Xubuntu so I don't know if I'm missing something by not using Ubuntu, but my laptop's a bit older. And if there is something from Synaptic I don't have to 'hand configure' that will be even better. I'm using a Dell DJ-Ditty now, but will get an even more generic one this weekend with more mem. (512mb currently), a 1 or 2gb for $19.
    Thx

    Re: Sync program for non-Ipod mp3 player crowd

    Me too! Ive been looking for a file manager for my Dell DJ Gen2 Player for about 2 months now. Can't find one. Gnomad2 latest version doesn't work, even as root, Neutrino does nothing, Amorok doesn't see it, Kzenexplorer closes as soon as I start it. One media player DOES see it, Banshee. But there is no way to see any files or folders, except for playlists. Also, I cant add or remove any files, since I cant see them. I am pissed.

    I have been looking for a solution for a long time. Does anyone have any idea how to fix this?

    Ubuntu 8.4, x64
    Dell DJ 2nd gen, 20 gig, MTP protocal i'm guessing

    lsusb -v outputs the following

    Gnomad 2 works out of the box with my 20gb Dell DJ 2nd Gen. I downloaded it after viewing this thread and it just worked. I included the output of lsusb for comparison.
