Re: ipod alternate?
I've always used Sony Walkman MP3 players. They've been drag 'n' drop since 2007 (they mount as a USB Mass Storage device on Ubuntu, and as MTP on Windows).

I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
