I have a question about my iPod. I'm running Ubuntu 7.10 and I use Banshee to transfer all my music files to my iPod. I have a 30GB Video and I would love to find out how to do a few things on it. What's a good program for transferring photo's or video's to my iPod? Also, how do I reformat my iPod in Linux? In iTunes in Windows, it lets you reformat and reinstall the iPod OS in a few minutes. Is there anything that can do any of those things in Linux? So far, since switching to Ubuntu, those are the only things that I ever go back to Windows to do.
Thanks for your help,
I am not quite sure if Amarok works with video files too, but I guess so. I've used it just for music files with my Shuffle. I think it formats the device when needed. Try out!
Hey, thanks for the reply, but I'm just wondering, isn't Amarok meant for KDE and not for Gnome? I've heard that programs meant for one don't work well in the other and so I'm a little bit worried about trying it.
I have run KDE and Gnome successfully side by side. I am mainly using Gnome, but I have the necessary KDE libraries. I have seen no problems in using Amarok nor any other KDE programs. I am using both i386 and x86_64 systems from Fedora.
False. Any application will work as long as all the needed libraries are installed. I don't use kde nor gnome myself. But I use lots of kde and gtk programs under fvwm without a single problem. You could even use the gnome panel under kde with the xfce window manager if that makes you happy :P

About the iPod, I don't use that kind of toys, but as long as it's an standard usb device (I don't really know if that's the case) it should just work. Depending on your distro, you might need to mount it manually or not. You might need to load the usb storage driver manually as well, it all depends on how your distro handles these things.
