I have a 20gb Ipod that I was able to mount and use on my old RH9 system. I recently went to Debian Sarge and now can not mount my Ipod. Below are some commands and results I've tried, so if anyone has any ideas I would appreciate it.


sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sda2 /mnt/ipod
mount: /dev/sda2 is not a valid block device

ls -al /mnt

tail -f /var/log/messages (as root) - then plug in the iPod and see what it says. Hopefully it will say what's going wrong...

Is it possible for you to plug it into USB? If not dont worry, but it might be interesting to see what it says

Well, it doesnt look like there is anything going wrong with the actual detection of the device, just the mounting. "Not a vlaid block device" could mean that the iPod's drive is corrupted (Although I have got thaty error a lot using Linux when Windows copes fine) or that the system is trying to use the wrong driver to communicate with the iPod and is getting confused.

I dont ahve an iPod though, so hopefully someone who knows more about it will be able to help.

Good Luck

Ok,

I found out on another board that my old kernel would not support firewire so I upgraded to kernel 2.6.8. It seemed to connect for a brief minute. I was able to do a ls-al on /mnt/ipod and it listed my mp3s. But i was unable to cd to /mnt/ipod, even with sudo. I even changed the permissions of the DIR to 755 and it still would not let me CD to /mnt/ipod. So I unplugged it. plugged it back in and reset it and now its not mounting the mount point. I get:

sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sda2 /mnt/ipod
mount: special device /dev/sda2 does not exist

That was the same mount command I used to mount it a few minutes ago when I was able to ls -al on /mnt/ipod.

here is my tail command

sudo tail -f /var/log/messages

I had that same error before, it was caused by not having the storage module loaded. What modules do you have loaded for it?

Actually something weird has happened. /dev somehow got mounted on /.dev.


As a temp fix I just mv /.dev to /dev and was then able to mount the Ipod.

tail on the error log shows below when I try to sync through gtkpod

smb_proc_readX_data: offset is larger than SMB_READX_MAX_PAD or negative!
smb_proc_readX_data: -59 > 64 || -59 < 0
