I have my ipod nano (4th gen). I want to add some new music to it and I have tried already a range of applications which should be able to do so.
I used this list of suggested software: http://www.wikihow.com/Manage-an-iPod-in-Linux
I have tried: atunes, amaraok, rhythmbox, banshee, music (elementary's own music player).
None of them worked. Banshee came the closest: I was able to manage my ipod. See playlists, transfer music to it, sync etc. After disconnecting my ipod, I saw Banshee was syncing the music database.
When I looked on my ipod, there was no new music, the created playlist was not there. When I connected the again, everything I had done was gone. Also in Banshee.
Amarok does not even show my ipod. Music shows some playlist but with the completely wrong content. atunes did not even recognize my ipod.
I searched for this and found this question at askubuntu: https://askubuntu.com/questions/26353/how-can-i-sync-with-an-ipod-nano-6g
But this question is about a much newer ipod.
Is it possible to manage my iPod in Elementary without running a VM with windows or Mac OS X?
(I was hoping that I did not any longer needed windows, but I already need it to get access to the iTunes store.)
my ipod nano is 5th gen, not a 4th gen.
Plus: I am running into multiple problems using the mentioned software. Missing software etc. And after installing this software, other missing software. So it goes on and on.
