new 160gb ipod classic won't work in linux
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 14, 2009
I've never had any trouble with linux and my ipod, and I decided to buy the new generation of ipod classic's, the smaller 160gb seemingly perfect for me. So I got home and fired up rhythmbox and transfered my entire library to my ipod. To my surprise, when I turned on my ipod, it told me that I had no songs! So, I plugged my ipod back into my machine, and guess what...rhythmbox tells me that all my music is on the ipod! I guess apple has made the new ipods only work with the new iTunes?
general ipod classic support in linux
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 13, 2010
I'm looking at purchasing a new 160 GB ipod classic, and I'm wondering how well such a device would be supported in ubuntu (and linux in general). I currently use lucid, and I'm just looking for the ability to copy (not sync) my entire music collection with id3 tag information, plus avi movies, etc. How is this support for linux? Thanks!

LXer: iPod Classic Will Be Supported on Linux
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 17, 2007
Published at LXer:
As recently reported on Slashdot, Apple, in its infinite wisdom, has added a checksum to the iPod database apparently to restrict non-iTunes products (like Amarok via libgpod) from having the ability to add music. To me this sounds pretty familiar. This is the same thing they did to iTunes 4.5 to make it harder for other apps to read off their DAAP shares, they changed it again in iTunes 7; open source apps are still unable to read iTunes 7 DAAP shares. But there's better news on this iPod front. The guys from #gtkpod reverse engineered the hashes.

iPod Classic Not Recognised by Ubuntu 13.04
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 11, 2013
I have an iPod Classic (120Gb), and everything was working fine a couple of months ago. Mysteriously, when I plug the device in my pc it is not recognised by the OS any more. I'm using Ubuntu 13.04. Whilst the iPod charges normally when plugged into the USB, I cannot access its library with any music software. Any ideas?
Thanks a million!
Unable to mount iPod Classic on Ubuntu 11.04
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 11, 2011
I downloaded Ubuntu 11.04 yesterday, and every time I try to mount my iPod or use Gtkpod to transfer my music across, I get the following error message:
Error mounting: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb2,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
This seems to be a fairly common problem, but none of the usual solutions are working for me. I have tried every fix I can find, including this one that seemed to fix it for most people. (it didn't do anything to help me.) I've also tried several solutions that involve the command 'sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mcenery/ppa', but each time I try these, the terminal gives me a 404 error. I really don't want to run XP on my computer just for my iPod's sake, so I'm hoping to find Linux-based solutions.
Thank you so much in advance!

Hi there i'm fairly new to linux, and am having trouble getting my ipod to sync with anything (i tried gtkpod amarok and banshee) they all recognize the player but it seems to be a read only device. (it was previously synced to my ex's mac!). i have tried resetting and reformatting on a friends mac to no avail, all i have managed to do is delete all my music from the device, now i'm stuck with a useless player, thanks apple... does anyone have either, any advice and any experience with the cowon x7 (as a replacement?) I'm happy to open a terminal and follow steps to try to unlock but reprogramming is a bit above and beyond my experience. hope someone can help. thanks. oh i should have said its an iopd clasic black 80gb
iPod Classic won't mount
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 26, 2013
My iPod (80 gb 5th generation classic) shows as connected but will not mount. As per the how to, I edited fstab to include a line for the device:
/dev/sdb1 media/ipod vfat user,noauto,umask=000 0 0
Then attempted to mount: sudo mount /dev/sdb1 and got:
mount: /dev/sdb1: can't read superblock
What do I do?
How to Restore iPod Classic Without Windows
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 11, 2009
I could not find this information and saw some people in the forums asking, but the answer was always to find a Windows or Mac machine to do the restore. This is actually not necessary and it ended up being a really simple process to restore my iPod with only Ubuntu.
Warning: This will erase ALL data on your iPod. You should only restore your iPod as a last resort.
You'll need to find out which device name your iPod uses, so plug it in and unmount it (but not eject) if it is automatically mounted by Ubuntu.
Then open up a terminal and:
sudo fdisk -l
To get a list of drives and partitions. Find the one that matches your iPod. If it's Windows-formatted, you'll have 2 partitions. HFS+, Mac-formatted iPods have 3 partitions. Note whether your iPod is at /dev/sda (although this is probably your hard drive!), /dev/sdb, /dev/sdc, etc.
For the rest of this article, you will replace /dev/sdx or /dev/sdx1 with your proper device name (and the trailing number, where it exist
