Full Version: Ipod Error When Trying To Mount

OK,

I was able to successfully mount and use my Ipod. I was using gtkpod to xfer MP3s onto my Ipod and it had successfully imported the songs over. I was in the process of updating the tags on some mp3s when my PC locked up. I was forced to reboot and every since I can't get my Ipod to mount. Below are some outputs that may be useful.

sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sda2 /mnt/Ipod

I have tried everything I did to make it work and I cant get it working again.

Anyone have any ideas? Also I need to set it up so I can umount the Ipod when I get ready to remove it from the PC. Everytime I try to umount it, I get a "can not unmount, device is busy error"
Jim
Does the iPod work still? You may have currupted the drive, and that can't really be undone. Does the iPod still work?
ncsuapex
Yes the Ipod still works as an MP3 player
Jim
Have you rebooted since this happened? Sometimes when I file system gets un-mounted improperly it can really cause problems for trying to remount that same device. Try rebooting. You could also try /dev/sdb2 it might have just moved over.
ncsuapex
Yes, I've rebooted several times.

I also tried sdb2. Same error


sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sdb2 /mnt/Ipod
Password:
mount: /dev/sdb2 is not a valid block device
Jim
the only thing I can think of is that you did screw up the filesystem some how. I am suprised that the iPod still works if you messed up the filesystem, but I can't come up with any other explination. Sorry man, I got nothing.

Have you tried using USB?
