You would think someone would've asked this question already, but I am having trouble getting GTKpod to recognize my ipod when I connect it. I know that GTKpod isn't the problem, it my system's mounting procedure. When I plug in my iPod, this goes through my /var/log/messages: (same with dmesg)
usb 3-3: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 3 usb 3-3: configuration #1 chosen from two choices scsi1 : SCSI Emulation for USB mass storage devices vendor: Apple Model: iPod Rev: 1.62 Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 00 SCSI device sda: 7999487 512-byte hdwr sectors (4096 MB) sda: write-protect is off SCSI device sda: 7999487 512-byte hdwr sectors (4096 MB) sda: wirte-protect is off sda: sda1 sda2 sd 1:0:0:0: Attached scsi removable disk sda
That's it. I don't know where it mounts it, if it mounts it, and I cant just
mount /dev/sda1 /media/ipod because I need to specify a filesystem type. and HTF+ and FAT32 aren't options.
This is a 4GB iPod Mini, I think it's almost a year old right now. It was used on a Windoze computer for 6 months or so, so it should have a FAT32 file-system on it. Any help would be excellent!
(side-note) Yes, linux, I did see your link to ipodlinux.org, but I want this music off of it before I even think about installing linux onto it.
