View Full Version : [SOLVED] amarok auto plays ipod nano

September 15th, 2009, 03:48 AM
I'm running amarok from Ubuntu Intrepid. When I plugin my iPod nano 4G into my box (for charging), amarok immediately starts playing songs from the nano. Is there a way to turn that off?

Go to System > Preferences > Removable Drives and Media and change it there.

I see cam, vid cam, web cam, PDA, printer, scaner... but no iPod type device.

If your using nautilus, which seems likely, (though the thread tag is kde) then the setting is in file management -> media -> music player.

For what ever reason ubuntu dev's have decided you shouldn't know of file management, so it's a hidden menu item in System -> Preferences.

Two of the many ways

To enable, go in terminal, and enable file management in preferences


to access directly, also in a terminal


Have a look around, several useful setting

That did the trick, just disable the option under media tab

To gain access using GUI, open nautilus (open any folder), go to edit -> preference.
