I am running Ubuntu 11.10, Gnome Shell 3.2 and Banshee 2.2.

Banshee correctly recognizes my 80GB iPod Classic (Model No MB147LLm, Version 1.1.2 PC). I have set Banshee to sync the entire library for the iPod.

When I sync, the iPod shows more music tracks than the Banshee library. The difference is large - some 5,500 Banshee tracks and about 5,900 tracks on the iPod.

What is happening? What is the remedy?

What type of iPod are you syncing and what version of iOS is it running? – Mark Rooney Nov 19 '11 at 21:26
Its an iPod classic 80gb. Model No MB147LL and Version 1.1.2 PC. I got this all from iPod settings menu. Let me know if you need any further information. – deshmukh Nov 20 '11 at 6:02

Install gtkpod.

sudo apt-get install gtkpod

You can also copy the existing contents of your iPod in their original name unlike some system generated alphabets of iTunes.

This could be a solution. But it does not solve my problem with Banshee :) Also, will it transfer my playlists/ ratings from Banshee? – deshmukh Feb 14 '12 at 3:46
