Running Linux Mint 15 KDE with KDE 4.11 from ubuntu-ppa/backports, when I mount my ipod nano it is not recognized by any of the media players I tried - amarok, clementine, songbird. Of course, the amarok itunes plugin is activated and I tried deactivating and reactivating it. songbird doesn't have a compaptible itunes extension. gtkpod can read the ipod but I get the following message every time I open it:
iTunesDB '/media/geoff/GEOFF'S IPO/iPod_Control/iTunes/iTunesDB' does not match checksum in extended information file '/media/geoff/GEOFF'S IPO/iPod_Control/iTunes/iTunesDB.ext'
gtkpod will try to match the information using SHA1 checksums. This may take a long time.
I find it weird that devices are mounted in /media/user even though I changed ownership of /media for my user.
I saw on ubuntu forums someone suggested to mount the devices as /media/IPOD, I tried and it didn't help.
Would be glad to get the ipod nano working in a podcast-supporting media player because gtkpod is a p.i.t.a. to use.
