View Full Version : [ubuntu] Banshee Issues with Playing and Synching

November 30th, 2010, 02:14 AM
I am a relatively new Ubuntu user and have been looking for an alternative to iTunes and downloaded Banshee. I absolutely love the program in regards to look and feel, however, I cannot get the program to do many things. First off, It will not play any mpeg version 1 layer 3 files, only mpeg 4 files. When I select an mpeg layer 3 file it simply displays a grey "x" next to the the title. On a separate note, whenever I attempt to sync my iPod, nothing happens. Also, when I select the iPod it simply says loading iPod at the bottom of the panel. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I had the same issue with my iPhone, and its because the iPhone/iPods dont like linux much. There is a way however, but I'm not sure im allowed to post links in here.

So, google "easy way to sync iphone with linux" and it should be the very first result.

Worked wonderfully for me.
