Upload music to my ipod shuffle

Postby neilj » Sat Apr 21, 2012 7:18 am

I have tried to use Banshee to upload music to my ipod shuffle, it does load the music but when I come to use the ipod there is this American voice telling me to synchronise the ipod with their software.

I can use a virtual machine but I dont want to. How do I get music onto the ipod via Linux and stil be able to play the music.

Do I need to change the format of the music? At the moment it is generally mp3.

Very strange you are getting the voice :shock: :?

I use a classic IPod 120GB. I connected the Ipod to my PC, it sees it as a remote drive. I deleted everything off it. My music was backed up in my music file on the PC. Opened Banshee, imported music, then synced ipod. Done.

Now on Ubuntu 12.04, I am using Rhythmebox instead of Banshee (default music player). Done the same and all fine. Apart from Rhythmbox didn't import album artwork, buts thats a different story.

When you say deleted everything. Do you mean all the directories as well
