Description Sævaldur Arnar Gunnarsson 2008-07-11 22:51:35 UTC
Description of problem:
Banshee seems to corrupt the iPod song database every time I add songs to the
iPod though Banshee.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch Banshee
2. Drag some songs from the music library to the iPod
3. Eject the iPod
Actual results:
The iPod reports that there are no songs on it.

Expected results:
I should see both the songs that were already on the iPod as well as the new
songs I copied from Banshee.

Additional info:
The iPod is a black Classic 80GB
Model: xB147 (according to gtkpod)

I can still play songs from the iPod through Banshee, but not if I disconnect
the iPod and try to play some music on the iPod itself.

I can however fix the song database with two different methods.

1) I can use gtkpod; Load the iPod, click "Save Changes" and exit the application.

2) I can also use rhythmbox; Drag some songs from the music library to the iPod
and eject it.

This package has now been orphaned, hopefully someone will be able to pick it up and resolve the reported bug soon.

Comment 2 David Nielsen 2008-10-11 09:38:48 UTC
Can you reproduce with Banshee 1.2.1 as is present in Fedora 9 now?

Comment 3 Sævaldur Arnar Gunnarsson 2008-10-21 12:19:20 UTC
Yes, this problem is still reproducable on Banshee 1.2.1

[addi@addi ~]$ rpm -q banshee

I have pushed your bug upstream here:

However due to some problem with upstreams bugtracker I have been unable to put your email as CC for the report.

Please follow up on the new bug report, your Fedora Banshee maintainer should suck in eventual bugfixes as they become available in new releases. Thank you for your report.

Comment 5 Michel Alexandre Salim 2009-01-01 23:28:29 UTC
Reporter noted that Fedora 10's banshee-1.4.1 no longer exhibits this, so it's probably due to ipod-sharp 0.8.0.

ipod-sharp is being bumped to 0.8.1 for Fedora 9 as well; will update Banshee as soon as that lands.
