    How do I sync my iPod, so I can transfer music and what-not into it.

    Eh, probably already looked at that, then. Lol.

    Edit: I think I tried that one. I don't think it worked. It was made in '08, too, the 2G wasn't even out then.

    Check out the Ubuntu Documentation on using ipod touch and iphone with Ubuntu. I have written parts of that guide myself. I don't now if it works with 9.04 or firmware 3.0 though, but try I out, and let me know if it works! I'm gonna give to the basics, but remember this might not work on iphoneOS 3.0 or Ubuntu 9.04.

    Since your not on FW 1.x you have to modify you checkpoint.xml for this to work. Use whatever tool you want and browse to /System/Library/Lockdown/Checkpoint.xml on your iPod. Then find th DBVersion key, and change it's value from 4 to 2.

    Then you can follow the "Syncing Music on Firmware Versions 1.x" guide, but remember that you can't follow the guide 100% as it is designed for iPhoneOS 1.x, and ubuntu 7.10-8.10, but i think all packages is available by default in 9.04. Also note that amarok 2.x (which is the one that is in the ubuntu repo's) does not support iPhones and ipod touches.

    Good luck!

    What I did was put a Virtual Box on Ubuntu, so now I have XP in Ubuntu, so when I need to sync my iPod, or use Photoshop, I can!
