    Unhappy Ipod not mounting. Neither gtkpod or amarok recognize it.


    I had my ipod working with suse 10, but i recently "upgraded" to 11.4 and the IPOD no longer mounts.

    dmsg output;
    ============================================

    Unfortunately, suse's "notifier" doesn't notice this as a new device, though it does see other USB devices when connected.

    Trying to fix this, I created a mount point;
    /mnt/ipod

    As root, I then manually mount the drive with
    mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/ipod

    at this point, I can browse to the ipod's file structure and see the .mp3's with their apple renaming:
    (AAVM.mp3, AOXV.mp3, and BRIH.mp3 etc...)

    I can even click those mp3's and they will play but KDE, gtkpod and amarok still don't recognize the ipod as an ipod device.

    amarok gives me no information at all to work with.

    gtkpod at least gives me an error when I click the "Load ipod(s)" button
    Error initialising ipod: Problem creating iPod directory or file: '/media/ipod/iPod_Control'
    (The same thing occurs even if I manually mount to /media/ipod vs /mnt/ipod mentioned above)

    There has to be some way to get this to mount so kde sees it.

    I try a lot of programs to use the ipod, and only banshee works with me, you should try it.

    I have. Since kde /suse don't see the ipod, neither does banshee
