Ubuntu 12.10 64-bit Banshee 2.6.0
I recently moved all my music onto a Ubuntu system and am using Banshee to access it. When I initially set this up, I connected my iPod Classic to the system and it recognized the device and synced up the music files. However, I can no longer get Banshee to see the iPod. I also tried attaching my Android phone to see what would happen, but also nothing. Nautilus sees both devices and each can be mounted/ejected there. I have new music registered in Banshee, but these new files are never transferred to the iPod.
When I first connect my iPod, it shows the "connecting" message and then says that it is "syncing" for 5 seconds or so. I think this is just something the iPod does upon every connection, as it displays this even though no music program is running. When I boot Windows XP, the iPod will sync with the current version of iTunes installed there.
Can anyone suggest some steps to debug this problem or some tricks for getting it to work. Thanks.
