iPod v1.2.1 and Ubuntu

I have had an iPod for a little over a year, and never updated the software. Since I run Ubuntu on all my computers, without Wine, I rarely log onto my Windows partition. So, a couple days ago, I decided to update my iPod software from 1.0 to 1.2.1.

All did not go as planned.

When I loaded up Amarok after updating my iPod, I received this message:

Media Device: failed to create lockfile on iPod mounted at /media/ipod: Read-only file system

After a lot of Googling, I found nothing related to my error.  Most of the problems I found were related to HFS filesystems (Mac iPod default) but mine was FAT32.

Then, I found the option to manually manage my iPod on iTunes.  Since then, I have had no problems syncing my iPod via Amarok.
