I restored my iPod on a friend's Mac using iTunes. When plugging in my iPod now, it's mounted as read-only and I have no way to transfer songs (using Rhythmbox or Nautilus). I've tried changing the permissions by hand but no luck. Information on the internet is outdated and does not apply to my iPod Classic 6th generation.
Most probably your iPod has an HFS+ filesystem. In order to make it work on Ubuntu you should:
- disable journaling
- get your music / iPod manager to write on the device
Now you can write on the iPod as root only (or as a user whose UID is the same as that of the user owning the iPod on the Mac). To execute a Gnome program from your launcher as root for example, see here (in Xubuntu you can just use the menu editor).
Temporary solution. From a terminal, run the command:
You should have permissions from there so you'll be able to transfer your songs.
Also, try to change the permissions from the
gksudo nautilus (: .
Hope I helped (you said you used nautilus, you mean with
gksudo? I just was unsure).
Also, second thing if you'll need, check the Ipod's partition/s with GParted.
