I have a iPod shuffle 4th Generation 2GB. I wanted to format it and I run this command:
rm -rf /media/IPOD/* /media/IPOD/.*
that removed anything from it.
Then I ejected my iPod from the computer, and inserted it again.
I tried Amarok, Gtkpod and Noise to reinitialize it...
Noise ouputs this in terminal:
[_LOG_LEVEL_FATAL 20:02:48.209188] iPodDevice.vala:62: Error parsing db at file:///media/IPOD: Couldn't find an iPod database on /media/IPOD. [_LOG_LEVEL_FATAL 20:02:48.209274] Music will not function properly.
while Amarok says
"iPod was not initialized: failed to initialize the iPod" outputting this in the terminal:
QDir::mkdir: Empty or null file name(s) X Error: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) 3 Major opcode: 20 (X_GetProperty) Resource id: 0x3400192
I don't care if I lose any iPod songs (what songs if I formated it?). I want to repair it and to use it under Ubuntu.
How can I do this?
When I start my iPod I hear a voice in the headphones: "Please use iTunes to sync music with this iPod."
