Title: Linux G5 Video Installation "do not disconnect"...
Post by: ephman on September 16, 2006, 06:52:51 PM
hi,

i believe installed the application properly.  everything went sort of smooth, except when i have the ipod plugged in to the USB cable i get a message that says "do not disconnect".  when i disconnect the cable the unit reboots into rockbox, but when i put the cable back in again it tells me that message.  is that normal?

also, what program or how do i import my music in?  i know a pretty basic question but i just got my first ipod...

thanks,
ephman

I believe you are at the wrong place. ROCKbox is not a linux application.

Yes, that message is normal.  It simply means that you need to unmount the iPod before disconnecting.

My bad.

To import songs, all you need to do is to put your songs into the Ipod like a normal usb device. There is no need for a 3rd party program.

You can then navigate to the song file through ROCKbox.
