View Full Version : [ubuntu] iPod Sporadically Unmounts

May 7th, 2009, 10:56 PM
I just switched from Fedora 10 to Ubuntu 9.04. I installed Songbird and imported my almost 4000 song music library. I then tried to sync my iPod (Black 5.5G 30GB iPod Video) with Songbird. My computer at first didn't recognize my iPod at all, so I used iTunes on another computer to restore my iPod.

I plugged my iPod back into the computer with linux and songbird, and tried once again to sync my music. This time, my computer recognized my iPod, but only for a few seconds, didn't recognize my iPod for a few seconds, then recognized it again. And so on. It appears that my iPod is mounting for about 10 seconds, and then unmounting for about 20. Over and over again. This doesn't leave me enough time to sync my music.

Thanks in advance,

Dude! I'm having the exact same problem now! I am really, really, hoping for a fix.
