Hello, I was wondering if there are any ipod managers that are cross platform and can be carried along on the ipod. I have a 1st generation ipod shuffle 1GB.
Please help, thanks!

I have encountered 2 ipod issues on my machine that I never had before. They started about a month ago and I did not have them when I first installed 12.04. I am running Ubuntu 12.04 with a 30gb first generation of video ipod.
1. My computer will not detect my ipod when I plug it in to the USB port. I have to reboot after plugging in the ipod for the machine to detect it.
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 have been trying to get some MP3's i have bought from Amazon onto my wife's ipod nano 6th generation. I have been using Banshee, I drag the file to the Ipod and it adds the MP3 track to the Ipod when in Banshee, but as soon as I eject or disconnect the Ipod from Ubuntu, and look the playlist on the ipod none of the songs I dragged over are added. Please any assistance or tips is accepting.
Hello! I recently switched to Xubuntu because I couldn't get Lubuntu to work with my iPod. The iPod worked fine with regular Ubuntu, but my old laptop can't handle the newer versions of Ubuntu, so I need something lightweight. I'm liking Xubuntu, but unfortunately I'm having even less success with my iPod than I did with Lubuntu.
To put it simply, I was under the impression that if I plugged my ipod into a usb port, it would at least show up in ubuntu. I can not see it at all. It is as if my ipod is not there at all. Please help if you can. I am sure there is a simple fix that I am unaware of. Also, my ipod is an ipod classic 120GB that I got in 2008, I think.
