I don;t want to sync, I just want to copy a bunch of MP3s to my ipod. I used to use to just drag the files over and drop tham on the ipod icon. This doesn't seem to work anymore. Any ideas?

Rhythmbox could not initialise the Ipod so I used Gtkpod and used Rhythmbox to copy songs into the Ipod.
Can access these files with Nautilus and can play them with Rhythmbox.
The Ipod will not play them and says "use Itunes" if pressed.
Looks like the Ipod uses some sort of song-index which is not working.
Moving files from and to the Ipod (drage and drop) makes Rhythmbox and Gtkpod crash.
I am using Kubuntu 13.10 which has Amarok 2.8.0. I quite like Amarok and would like to have it to sync my old 4th gen iPod Touch (6.1.5, jailbroken). Everything works quite nicely: Amarok recognizes iPod, lists music in it and I've been able to copy music from iPod to hard drive by using Amarok. And I also manage to copy music from hard drive to iPod. Or it seems like that.
I have followed the posted instructions on the "restricted formats" as specified in the stickie on the forum.
When I insert an audio CD, I can see the mp3/ folder in KDE with the tracks on the CD, but whenever I try to copy one of the mp3 files from the folder I get a VERY wide error messagebox stating that lame threw an error.
I seem to be having trouble syncing playlists made in Rhythmbox onto my ipod. I can sync music fine but can find no way to do the playlist. Dragging & dropping doesn't work. If I right click on the ipod in the device section & go to properties, then the sync tab, under sync preferences it only offers me music & podcast options. Surely there must be a way around this?
So I finally got my Ipod Touch 5 to sync to my computer with Banshee but when I try transfer music from the computer to my Ipod it just wont.. I mean like when I drag a mp3 file over to the "Ipod touch" tab at the bottom left it says "Importing 1 of 1" and bellow that it says "Scanning" and I check on my Ipod the file isn't there...
I'm trying to get my iPod fully working with ubuntu 11.10 so I don't have to keep booting into windows to manage things. I've tried a few different things so far:
1)Rhythmbox: this finds my iPod OK, has a nice podcast management system built in, and all looked very nice. UNTIL I tried to sync with the iPod or look at iPod properties then it just crashes and shuts down.
i'm totally new to linux, running ubuntu 12
trying to sync a gen 5 ipod nano with music off my machine, but struggling with any and all suggestions found on the web.
tried both banshee and rhythmbox (able to recognise device, but drag and drop ignored by software)
and tried spotify (unable to recognise the ipod whatsoever).
tearing my hair out trying to get this sorted.
any and all ad
