Title: On Debian, my iPod 5 is mounted, but mountpoint doesn't show up in dropdown
Post by: number3pencils on January 28, 2018, 12:45:11 AM
First-time user, hi everyone.

So, I got an iPod 5, and I downloaded the Utility. Plug in the iPod, fire up the Utility, and pull up the "Configuration" window. That tells me, "Select your device in the filesystem." I try clicking the autodetect button, but no dice. So I click on the dropdown under "Select your device...". Well, it's empty. The Utility doesn't seem to know I've got any device plugged in, even though three different file managers all see it at /media/iPod/. And I can't enter that in as a mountpoint, because it's a dropdown.

So I'm kind of dead in the water. Any idea how to proceed?

Info: MX Linux 16 (Debian-based distro), iPod model A1136, Rockbox 1.4.0.

Still don't know what happened with this, but I was able to get it installed via Windows instead and now it's playing nice with Linux. So I don't need the answer, but if someone has one, another person might want it someday.
