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.
