I put a geographically remote relative onto Mint 6 with complete satisfaction – so far. However, she recently bought an ipod nano 8gb model a1285 and we find it cannot be loaded with music files by Music Player (Rhythmbox) as could earlier models. Although it mounts and displays the icon both on the desktop and in Music Player, one cannot drag and drop music files into it. There has been some discussion of this and the following link from an Ubuntu forum gives a technical answer: http://lilserenity.wordpress.com/2007/1 ... d-nano-3g/
This is not helpful in our case and I have three questions:
Is there the possibility before long of Mint/Rhythmbox box having a suitable upgrade to work with the latest iPods?
Meanwhile, can anyone confirm if Banshee (which is available with Software manager) will work without hassle?
Is there an alternative solution?
