    how to synchronize music with rhythm box

    recently have installed Ubuntu 10.04. i'm enjoying it but i have a small problem. When i plug in my mp3 player Ubuntu recognizes it and prompts for Rhythm box but there is no option to synchronize my music i have to do it manually its a pain for me.
    In windows i used to use media jukebox and it had a button on top to synchronize.

    can anyone help !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    There was a discussion here http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1543577

    Depends what gen iPod you have.

    My plan is to sit down and figure it all out when I get a moment but gtkpod looks like the best bet from what I can tell. So far I've tried:

    Installing iTunes using WINE
    Installing iTunes using Playsonlinux (a front end for WINE)
    Installing vista in virtualbox

    With no success....

    Until I sort it out, I'm booting into vista just to sync the iPod and update my TomTom.

    Hope that helps

    actually i don't have an iPod its a "zenstone plus mp3 player"
    by the way i read it somewhere that rhythm box currently does not have the ability to synchronize to mp3 players but they are working on it..
    so for the time being rhythm box alternative like banshee or something else would work.

    If you want to continue using Rhythmbox then you could use Grsync (available in the software centre) to separately update and sync your music collection.

    That's what I'm doing
