Very strange you are getting the voice
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.
