View Full Version : [ubuntu] Exctracting photos from iPod Nano 3rd Gen

March 27th, 2009, 03:16 PM
So, i have an iPod that belongs to my friend. It was sync'd to her laptop, but that laptop has since been stolen. I'm looking for a way to exctract the photos so she can have them back, since the other copies were lost with her laptop.

I've tried extracting them with gPixPod but although I can read the database structure, it hangs when I try to look at any photo.

Nothing else in the repositories seems to be of any help for pictures specifically.

I have already extracted all the music btw, that was super easy, but the photos have me stumped.
Can anyone lend a hand or suggest another program to use?
I have Ubuntu 8.10

sudo apt-get install testdisk
man photorec

gtkpod works for me.

photorec wouldn't extract any pictures at all.

and gtkpod also wouldn't let me copy photos off the ipod, although I can view them. I can't seem to copy them off.

Sorry, am I just doing something wrong?

So, After a ton of research, the only way to extract the photos that worked for me was a program called Floola


Thanks for the suggestions though.
