Running Ubuntu 10.10 getting this error as soon as I connect my iPod 4G running IOS 5.0.1.
When I open Nautilus, I can see the iPod icon, but same error appears when I try and open the ipod.

After upgrading to Ubuntu 13.04 I am unable to sync my ipod touch to any of the suggested applications, Rhythmbox, Banshee, etc. I get the unable to mount error and an unhandled lockdown (-17) error and an unable to open MTP device error. Rhythmbox will sometimes detect the iPod, but will not sync and then after a few moments lose connection and crash.
When trying to sync iPod, change iPod settings, or restore iPod from within iTunes you may see one of the following error messages: The iPod "Customer's iPod" cannot be updated. An unknown error occurred (-50). The disk could not be read from or written to. The iPod "Customer's iPod" could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (1418, 1429, 1430, 1436 or 1439).
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.
I had Banshee running on a older Fedora computer. When I upgraded systems about 4 or 5 moths ago, I just tar'ed my home directory and untar'ed it on my new system which is Linux Mint 14.
I tried adding some music files to my ipod. Adding it on the computer worked fine, but when I went to sync my ipod I got a fatal error. I am including the error below.
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.
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.
