Did you add at least one track using I-Tunes? This works with Banshee (Mint 9) with I-Pad 2 might work with 3 :) :)

Brand new Apple devices or iOS versions often don't immediately work with Linux. In fact we don't get any support from Apple to make iPods, iPhones and iPads working on Linux. Maybe it'll work in a future Mint version or with an update to libimobiledevice.

:) :)
In my post i mean you should set up your I-Pad Using I-Tunes :(
Add a few songs using I-Tunes the same songs should also be on your Linux System
In Banshee use the manual update...It should lt you sync, But as AlbertP noted Apple Don't Support Linux so Linux is behind Apple Updates which also seem to Break What we Have.. :( :(

Same issue here. Syncing iPod classic 120GB is refused, due to lack of file permission as root, although I am logged in as system admin.

Any ideas/suggestions? I am Linux newbie and Mint freshman, so I couldn't handle the permission setting. Need help :wink:
