Ok, right, but which option should I choose at Foola’s startup? The “1G, 2G” or the “ipod shuffle” one?
1g, 2g. But you will need to run it through a newer version of itunes first.
I’ve just downloaded the latest version of itunes (10.2.1) and restored my ipod shuffle to the factory settings. I added one song with itunes and ejected the ipod. It played very well. Great.
Later I started Floola at Ubuntu, it showed me one song (the one I added with itunes) and I added another one with Floola. I hold the “Shift button” to sync the ipod while exiting Floola and “safely removed the drive” with Ubuntu. I tested and it continues playing only the song I added with itunes. Have I did something wrong?
Plug back into itunes, see if the track appears. Floola does work, but I think you would be happier using shuffle-db.py. Step 1. Make a music folder on your shuffle. Step 2. Put in am mp3. Step 3 Double click and run shuffle-db.py. Eject and you are gold.
I think I’ve discovered the problem, maybe Floola isn’t syncing my music. What’s the correct way to sync ipod with Floola?
Open an add window. Drag track to it. It will show red text, like 1 file, 4 megs. Add it..
Choose “iPod shuffle” for iPod shuffle 1G and 2G.
I tested the option “iPod shuffle” on Floola for windows and it worked perfectly, I could add and remove songs. So I think I finally discovered the problem:
At Ubuntu, Floola isn’t ejecting my Ipod when I hold down the “Shift button”. So, I think the songs aren’t being written to the Ipod.
I don’t know if it is a bug from Ubuntu or the new version of Floola. I wonder if I had some keyboard shortcuts configured at Ubuntu (which could stop working the eject function at Floola), but I don’t have shortcuts with the keyword “Shift”. Do you know if it could be a bug on the current release of Floola for Linux?
Yeah, that would do it. I run ubuntu and find that bookmarking the Flooa directory in Nautilus give you a quick short cut to floola folder and you can eject from there.
You can also install http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7138409/indicator-usb/indicator.html as option as well…
Very, very weird… At Ubuntu, the songs appear on Floola, but when I eject either using the “Shift button” or using the http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7138409/indicator-usb/indicator.html you’ve sent they aren’t being played on the Ipod
I can see the Ipod being ejected but when I turn it on the songs aren’t played.
It’s very interesting because on Windows it works normally.
