Description leon 2010-09-30 13:39:50 UTC
When I drag 'n drop a file to the iPod icon in Banshee it looks fine. But when I look at the output in the terminal Banshee throws this error:

[Warn  15:13:48.495] Failed to save iPod database - GLib.GException: Unsupported checksum type (in `libgpod-sharp')
  at GPod.ITDB.Write () [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 
  at Banshee.Dap.AppleDevice.AppleDeviceSource.PerformSyncThreadCycle () [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 
[Warn  15:15:14.930] Forcefully breaking out of RCS loop b/c change in total_width less than 1.0

Also, the music can't be found on the iPhone. 

It's an iPhone4 with iOs 4.1 installed.
Comment 1 leon 2010-09-30 13:41:26 UTC
I've installed libgpod-0.7.95
Comment 2 Christophe Fergeau 2010-09-30 15:35:14 UTC
libgpod can't write to the iPhone 4, so this error is expected. Let's keep this bug open for a discussion about how to nicely handle that error :)
Comment 3 Christophe Fergeau 2010-10-04 08:43:04 UTC
This new description isn't 100% accurate, iOS 4.1 will work with libgpod, it's a set of devices that won't work whichever their iOS version is. These devices are the iPhone4, iPod Touch 4, iPad and Nano 6 (the touch version). But for example an iPhone 3GS with iOS4.1 should work.

Banshee is not under active development anymore and had its last code changes more than three years ago. Its codebase has been archived.

Closing this report as WONTFIX as part of Bugzilla Housekeeping to reflect
reality. Please feel free to reopen this ticket (or rather transfer the project
to GNOME Gitlab, as GNOME Bugzilla is being shut down) if anyone takes the
responsibility for active development again.
See for more info.
