I have an old 80GB iPod video (I can already hear the groans and rage-mouse-clicks back lol) - new battery, works great bla bla bla. Fast forward to now - so, I'm transferring some music from Zorin to my iPod with Rhythmbox aaaaand it messes up my space and the DB somehow. I'm not 'syncing' btw - and GTKPod does work, though I don't have a way to get videos in except with iTunes. Handbrake is.. frivolous now for converting for iPod. Have tried with a blank Pod and actually syncing with Rhythmbox and same result. Shows I have like 200EB (exabytes) - and that's just, flattering
I'm still wondering what's going on with Rhythmbox - previous versions I had used waaay back in the past worked without any issues. Still had to use iTunes for videos, then update the database in Rockbox for new music. Weird...
Did see there's a stable flatpak version of Rhythmbox in the Software Center, little newer - if anyone has any experience with that and iPod, feel free to input. I am trying to get away from iTunes but, if I can't no biggie.. already restored it like 3 times trying different syncing techniques - that ended up not what I wanted in the end. I like the album art and other little things I can do with iTunes I can't really do in Rhythmbox / GTKPod.
